Celtics look to bounce back against Hornets

CHARLOTTE -- The vaunted Boston Celtics defense gets a shot at 60-point scorer Kemba Walker in his encore performance when the defending Eastern Conference runner-up visits the Charlotte Hornets on Monday night.

Walker exploded for the NBA's highest scoring game of the season in Saturday's 122-119 home loss to Philadelphia.

The 60 points included six 3-pointers, allowing him to increase his scoring average to 28.7 points and number of threes made to 58, both now within striking distance of NBA leader Stephen Curry (29.5, 62).
