When the Boston Celtics take on the Charlotte Hornets tonight it will be a game that has some playoff implications. The teams are separated by just one game in the standings.

The C's are 22-33, the Hornets are 23-32. Both teams are hunting for that 8th and final playoff spot in the east.

With the roster apparently set for the remainder of the season, the Celtics have won two in a row and are playing better basketball.

Charlotte is coached by former UMaine Farmington player and Woodland HS coach Steve Clifford. His team has battled injuries all year.
