Clifford Vs C’s On 92.9 The Ticket
The Boston Celtics and Steve Clifford's Charlotte Hornets meet for the fourth and final time tonight and so much is at stake that it is being called a playoff game for both teams.
Hornets coach Clifford began his coaching career at Woodland HS after his college playing days at UMaine Farmington. Now in his second season as a NBA head coach, his Hornets are 31-41 and half game behind the Celtics in the NBA east.
The Celtcs are 32-41 and that's a half game out of the 8th and final playoff spot.
The C's have eight games left after tonight, the Hornets have nine.
Perhaps most important to both teams tonight - the tiebreaker. Clifford's team has beaten the C's two of the three times so far this eason. A Charlotte win means the Hornets win a head-to-head tiebreaker. A Boston win means it is a 2-2 split.
NOTE: Live coverage of the Celts vs Hornets begins at 6:30pm on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.
