The Celtics host the New Orleans Hornets tonight, normally a fairly insignificant game on the schedule.  But today it includes the story line of C’s head coach Doc Rivers facing off against his son, Austin, who was the Hornets first round draft pick last June. This evening could also be a big night for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.  Garnett (24,809) needs just 7 points to pass Patrick Ewing (24,815) for 16th place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.  Pierce (23,317) is only 18 points away from passing Boston legend Robert Parish (23,334) for 22nd place.  Both are likely to happen tonight. Former Celtic Ray Allen (23,336) just moved ahead of Parish for 21st place on Monday.  If Pierce scores 20 or more against New Orleans he’ll surpass Allen as well; although Ray would likely regain his position just a few hours later when the Miami Heat play in California against the Warriors.
