Charlotte Hornets vs Boston Celtics (By: Miyagi)
The Celtics will miss C Horford (13.2p, 4.1as, 6.7reb), F/G Hayward (10.8p, 3.4as, 4.2reb) and their other Center Baynes (5.3p, 1.1as, 4.2reb). Good news for them is that the Hornets will miss MKG while Batum is doubtful, both important two-way players while C Zeller is still unavailable.
Without Horford who is their top rebounder and a great passer who is doing a lot of the assisting in the offense as well as Hayward, there is a great number of assists as well as rebounds to be split among the rest of the players and Irving is expected to get the lion's share. Irving has 3 Double-Doubles (one triple-trouble) in his last 5 games while he is doing a lot more things on the court this month as he averages a bit over 8 assists with 7 rebounds in his 9 games in March.
This should not be an easy game for the Celtics as the Hornets still have something to play for and each game from now on is a must-win for them. Irving should get heavy minutes today and he will have a good chance to record at least a double-double thus there is some value here.
