With such big implications, every point matters for both of these teams.

During the middle of the second quarter, Celtics forward Gerald Wallace made a play that reminded many of his younger days as he showed he still has some hops.

Wallace went right over Hornets forward Marvin Williams and caught a beautiful feed from guard Avery Bradley to slam home the alley-oop.

Williams tried putting a hand up to block the lob, but Wallace ripped it away as he picked up the easy two points.

The Boston Celtics have been one of the surprising teams in the Eastern Conference this season.

The team boasts plenty of young talent and they have helped push toward one of the last playoff spots in the east.

However, on Monday night, it was the veteran Wallace making the big plays for the Celtics and setting an example for the younger players on the squad.
