Hornets at Celtics Over 208

Based on current form, this total opened too short. The Hornets have come out blazing following All-Star break averaging 116.2 points in their last four games.

The Celtics have gotten better offensively, but worse defensively. Boston is averaging 114.7 points in its last four games, while allowing an average of 111.6 points during its past five games.

Both team’s main scorers, Kemba Walker and Kyrie Irving, are in good shooting grooves. Walker is averaging 24.6 points during his last five games and has made at least 50 percent of his 3-point shots in the last six games. Irving is averaging 26.7 points in his last four games while shooting 53 percent from the floor during this span.

The Hornets rolled past the Bulls, 118-103, at home last night. However, swingman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and big man Cody Zeller left with injuries. They are both questionable, It would be an added plus to the Over if neither can play, especially Kidd-Gilchrist. He’s Charlotte’s best defensive player, but has a limited offensive game.
