Two teams vying for playoff position in the East do battle today at Spectrum Center, where Terry Rozier and the Charlotte Hornets will defend home court from Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics. The Celts made an impressive statement in their last meeting with the Hornets earlier this month in Boston, when Tatum's 22 points and eight rebounds paved the way for a 116-86 blowout win over the injury-depleted Hornets.
