Celtics will beat Hornets. If Hawks hold off Bucks, Boston will be three games back of No. 6 seed with two games against Milwaukee.

Mike Prada

This isn’t the first time the Hornets look better with Biyombo in instead of Jefferson, particularly defensively.

Celtics' 22-point lead has been sliced to 10, and the Hornets crowd has life for really the first time all night.

Adam Himmelsbach

Five quick points to start the second half and the Celtics suddenly have a 61-44 lead. Timeout, Hornets.

Jason Maxiell -- six points and two rebounds in three minutes -- helps Hornets tie the game at 23. Hornets trailed by as many as 11.

Abby Chin

Marcus Smart told me before the game #Celtics need to get back to defense-first mentality. Hold #Hornets to 1-for-6 start. #CelticsTalk

Adam Himmelsbach

Quick start for the Celtics who lead the HORNETS. 10-2. Ha.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets start out 1-of-5 from field, spot Celtics an 8-2 lead.

Adam Himmelsbach

With a win tonight, the Hornets would take the season series from the Celtics, 3-1, and own the 1st tiebreaker.

Scott Agness

Cody Zeller out tonight for the 10th time in the last 11gms due to injury. IU fans hoping he’s better by Friday when the Hornets are in Indy

Jay King

Cody Zeller out tonight, per the Hornets. Marvin Williams will start.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford says Hornets need to go 7-3 rest of way. That probably requires 5-0 at home. Tough if Houston has something to play for April 13.
