Right the Ship:
Us Celtics fans know that the team has been on a bit of a cold streak, or a slump. They just aren't playing like the team we thought they'd be. Tonight is a great night to get back on track. The Hornets are very beatable, yet still a good team. It would do the C's good to go out there and take care of business.
Kyrie vs Kemba:
I absolutely love seeing these two go at it. Kyrie Irving and Kemba Walker are two of the more crafty, quick, and elite offensive guards in the game. I get the feeling that whoever wins this one-on-one matchup will lead their team to a victory tonight. I definitely will side with Kyrie on this one, but it is no knock to Kemba. I think both players will score over 25 points tonight.
Injuries and Rotation:
The team has been a bit off. In fact, some players have literally been off the floor. When guys are out or sit large chunks of games, it messes with Brad Stevens' rotation. The Celtics will need to use this game to continue to see what works and what doesn't. There are many bumps and bruises on this team.
