  • The Boston Celtics (39-16 SU, 28-26-1 ATS) welcome the Charlotte Hornets (15-41, 22-31-3) to TD Garden on Friday. The hosts will look to pick up their third straight victory while the visitors aim to avoid a sixth consecutive loss.

    The Celtics opened as the huge 10-point favorite at home with the total set at 230 points. Boston has won 11 of its last 12 games vs Charlotte at TD Garden while the UNDER is 4-2 in the last six meetings between the two teams.

    Latest Betting Notes: Hornets

    The Hornets suffered yet another loss Wednesday as they fell 118-104 to the Washington Wizards. PJ Washington (20 points) was the only player to hit the 20-point mark for Charlotte while Kristaps Porzingis had 36 to lead Washington to the win.

    Charlotte has struggled all season long but it’s gotten even worse since Kelly Oubre was sidelined by a hand injury in late December. The Hornets have just five wins in 20 games without Oubre despite consistent efforts from Terry Rozier and LaMelo Ball, who averaged 25.1 and 22.5 points per game, respectively, through January.

    Latest Betting Notes: Celtics

    The Celtics outdueled the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday in a battle between two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, coming out with a 106-99 win. Derrick White and Malcolm Brogdon led Boston with 19 points apiece as six players finished in double digits for the Celtics. Joel Embiid led all players with 28 points in the loss.

    Wednesday’s win was an uncharacteristically low-scoring game for both Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, who combined for just 16 points. Brown played only 18 minutes, leaving the game in the first half after colliding with Tatum while going for an offensive rebound. He suffered a facial fracture on the play and joins a lengthy injury list for the Celtics.

    The Keys to Victory: Hornets

    The Hornets go into Friday’s contest as the huge underdog but with Brown ruled out, they actually own the top-scoring duo in the matchup as Ball and Rozier are combining for about 45 points per game. If those two can put up solid performances, which they’ve done on a fairly consistent basis, the Hornets could surprise the Celtics.

    The other side of the coin is defense, of course, where Charlotte is allowing 118.6 points per game – tied for the third-worst mark in the NBA. Brown’s absence will give them a break but the Hornets still need to lock in if they’re going to pull off the upset.

    The Keys to Victory: Celtics

    The Celtics are looking like a pretty beat-up squad as all five of their starters are on the injury list. Brown and Marcus Smart (ankle) are ruled out while Tatum (illness) is questionable and Robert Williams III (ankle) as well as Al Horford (knee) are listed as probable. Tatum’s status will obviously be the biggest swing factor in determining whether Boston truly has a big edge at tipoff.

    If Tatum is in, the Celtics should be fine, but if he’s out, they’ll need to find some scoring from other sources. White has scored 19-plus in four of his last seven games, including each of his last three. He’ll likely need to play a big role again if Boston’s going to come out on top.
