Celtics-Hornets Preview

(AP) -- Of the four teams battling for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, three have contributed to the current level of intrigue mostly by subtraction.

The Hornets and Boston Celtics are two of them, and they'll meet Monday night in Charlotte with the home team trying to secure the season series.

The Hornets (31-41) sit one-half game behind the Celtics (32-41), who are tied with Indiana and are one-half back of Brooklyn for the No. 8 seed. Charlotte has taken two of three in the season series and would gain the tiebreaker with another win over Boston.
