Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics (39-27) will take on LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets (32-34) in part of the NBA Wednesday slate.

The Celtics are coming off a thrilling 54-point performance from Jayson Tatum leading them to a win over Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.

Boston has been arguably the hottest team in the NBA as of late with their elite defensive execution and having Tatum as a closer.

In speaking of defensive execution, it has been a struggle for the Hornets to get stops and they allowed Kyrie Irving to drop an insanely efficient 50-point performance in their last game.
