NBA Betting – Celtics vs. Hornets Preview

Kevin Garnett and Glen DavisThe Boston Celtics are supposed to be one of the elite teams in the NBA but recently, there have been some fractures in the armor. The Boston Celtics have been struggling lately, splitting their last 10 games with five wins and five losses.

Recent reports have surfaced that there is actually some chemistry issues in the locker room and it appears that the root of those problems is forward Glen Davis. Big Baby has been acting like a baby for a while and it appears that the Celtics have had enough.

Last year, he had a run in with Kevin Garnett. This year, he was caught on camera in a confrontation with fans. Now the Celtics have had enough and are looking to move him in a trade before the deadline.

The most recent report has Davis linked to the Charlotte Bobcats in return for point guard D.J. Augustin. The Celtics have been looking for a backup point guard and Augustin has fallen out of favor with Larry Brown. The deal could work but a third team would be needed.

Meanwhile, the Celtics will travel to New Orleans, a city that is party crazy right now because of the Saints, to face the Hornets on Wednesday night.

The Celtics have been struggling recently but injuries have been one of the main factors. They played a stretch without Kevin Garnett, then recently Paul Pierce sat out a couple of games and Marquis Daniels just returned after missing 28 games.

But the Celtics won’t get any sympathy from the Hornets, who are without their All-Star, Chris Paul.

The Hornets have lost four straight games at home and four of their last five overall. They haven’t captured the magic of the team that nearly won the West two years ago and after firing head coach Byron Scott and losing Paul, the Hornets are really lost at sea.

The Celtics will be on the road and winning away from home is never easy, but the Celtics are 17-8 on the road and those who bet sports can expect a good effort from them. The Celtics were worked over by the Orlando Magic on Sunday and they will be ready to bounce back on Wednesday against the reeling Hornets.
