New Orleans Hornets (18-14) vs. Boston Celtics (24-6)

Friday, December 31st, 2010 3:00PM EST

Line: Boston -6.5

Overview:

  • The Celtics are coming off a terrible loss to the lowly Detroit Pistons. Boston is beginning to struggle through the injuries their star players are undergoing. Now with both Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo out, the Celtics will rely on their wing men in Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Glen Davis.
  • Boston is 15th in the league in scoring this season, they will continue to see their scoring load come from their seasoned vet in Paul Pierce. The 12-year-vet is averaging 18.8 points and 5.1 assists per game this season.
  • The Hornets have lost four out of their last six games heading into this one. The struggling group is coming off back-to-back losses to the Wolves and the Lakers. New Orleans is fourth in points allowed this season.
  • Emeka Okafor will need to take advantage of the absence of Garnett for the Celtics. Okafor is averaging 10.4 points and 9.6 rebounds per game this season. David West tweaked his ankle in the team’s game last night against the Lakers, but expect the scoring forward to suit up for this one.

Game Forecast:

The Celtics remain as favorites heading into this matchup against the Hornets, they will need big plays coming from their role players. The Hornets are ranked 15th this season in rebounds per game, so they shouldn’t have a hard time with Boston’s depleted front court.
