Eric Gordon Will Sit Againt Boston Celtics Wednesday Night


It has reported that Monty Williams will sit out Eric Gordon Wednesday night.

<blockquote><p><a href=”https://twitter.com/search/%23Hornets”>#Hornets</a> coach Monty Williams says Eric Gordon will not play tonight vs <a href=”https://twitter.com/search/%23Celtics”>#Celtics</a>. Gordon’s rehab involves avoiding back to back games.</p>&mdash; A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) <a href=”https://twitter.com/SherrodbCSN/status/291689545890664448″ data-datetime=”2013-01-16T23:33:01+00:00″>January 16, 2013</a></blockquote>

 

This means that the tough match-up on the perimeter the Celtics will give the Hornets will be even tougher. Austin Rivers should get significantly more playing time than what he has been seeing as of late. This will be the first time in his career where he is playing against his dad, Doc Rivers team. That should be interesting.
