Hornets Host Celtics Tonight – Game Preview
The New Orleans Hornets (1-0) host the Boston Celtics (0-2) at the Hive tonight in the home opener for the fleur de bees. Eric Gordon was impressive in his Hornet debut Monday night, scoring 20 points and shooting 50% from the field.
New Orleans welcomes back a familiar face to the lineup tonight, as starting point guard Jarrett Jack returns from his one game suspension. Marco Belinelli, a shooting guard, made a rare start at the 1 for NOLA in Monday night’s season opening win over Phoenix. He will now move back to the 2, coming off the bench as Gordon’s primary backup.
Tip-off tonight at the New Orleans Arena is set for 7:00.
