Boston vs. Charlotte
Coming into tonight's game against Charlotte the Boston Celtics have won 5 straight and trail New York by 4 1/2 games in the Atlantic conference. Since Kevin Garnett got into it with Carmelo Anthony the Celtics have been playing inspired basketball. We'll see if the trend continues. Unfortunately the Bobcats won't be much opposition tonight.
Cleveland vs. Sacramento
The Sacramento Kings seem to be distracted by the constant rumors the team will be sold and moved to Seattle. The Kings have lost 4 straight despite the improved play of DeMarcus Cousins. Cleveland has not fared much better losing 7 of their last 10 games. It is apparent the injury to Anderson Varejao is more critical to their success than previously thought. In this battle of sub par teams Cleveland should win at home.
