The Boston Celtics have the ability to blow the doors off here, but this is a lot of points for a team on the end of a back to back and may still be without Tatum. The Charlotte Hornets have the rest advantage and while they’re not good, they only lose on the road by an average of 5.2 points and in the underdog role by an average of 6.8 points. It feels like we’re getting an extra bucket or two. Give me the Hornets.
