Pre-game notes:

- Boston comes in with the league's 4th ranked defense despite their injury issues.

- The Hornets have 6 games remaining on the current homestand, including this one, and won't go on the road again until April 3rd at Oakland, the start of a 5 game Western swing.

- Since Rajon Rondo's injury, Boston doesn't play a true point guard in its starting lineup; Paul Pierce is the most frequent high assist man for the team.
