We're home from the game, so I will finish up the picks. Celtics vs Hornets was into garbage time by the midway point of the 3rd quarter. Celtics looked much sharper with the ball than before the all-star break. The defense allowed way too much in the paint in the first half, but they tightened it up greatly in the second half. A little rest has gone a long way.

Now the rest of the picks.
