The Hornets played their way into a tie with Miami for first place in the Southeast Division on Monday. Charlotte defeated New York, 101–92 at home.
Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb hit double-figures in the starting lineup but it was Charlotte’s bench that flourished. Miles Bridges, Malik Monk, Guillermo Hernangomez and Tony Parker all scored in double-figures, too. Hernangomez finished with 11 rebounds, Bridges eight and Parker four assists.
That bench hasn’t been spectacular but it was never expected to be one of the best in the NBA. It has been good, though, and consistently good. Good enough that it and Kemba Walker are basically enough to produce a .500 team in the East.
Walker was listed on Monday’s injury report, though, of course, he did play. It’s fair to assume he’ll go in this one as well.
The Hornets and Celtics have each won a game against the other at home. Charlotte lost by 16 when it was last in Boston.
The Celtics played Brooklyn on Monday without Kyrie Irving but still managed to defend home court, 112–104. Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart led the Celtics with 21 points apiece.
Terry Rozier stepped in for Irving, who missed the game because of a sore hip after falling in Boston’s loss to Golden State over the weekend, and scored 14 points with seven boards and seven assists. Al Horford finished with 14 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.
I would imagine Irving is back for this game, matched up with Walker. Boston does have the luxury of both Smart and Rozier, both excellent defenders, to throw on Walker and allow Irving to use more of his energy on offense.
But here we are about to enter February and Boston’s biggest concern/uncertainty is still the same: Gordon Hayward. An anonymous Warrior called Hayward a liability on both ends of the court after their game this weekend.
Hayward finished with just two points, three rebounds and three assists in 21 minutes on Monday. With all the great contracts and young assets the Celtics have, it would be a terrible feeling if their max contract guy turned out to be a bust.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction: Boston keeps rolling.
The Celtics are playing great, aside from Hayward, however. Aron Baynes has solidified the bench and Irving should be back and feeling fresh. I’ve got the C’s by double-digits.
