Nicolas Batum's play has been nothing short of spectacular over the past few weeks, and Sunday was no different. He had 10 points, eight assists, and six rebounds, and it seems like every game he flirts with a triple-double.

Frank Kaminsky continues run of solid play on Wednesday  photo

On Wednesday, he scored 16 points to go along with three rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes of action.

Kemba Walker takes care of business as usual on Wednesday  photo
Kemba Walker had 23 points and five assists on Wednesday against the Celtics, in a great point guard matchup between Kyrie Irving and himself. Irving outplayed Walker on the night, but Walker was still able to post his fourth game with at least 23 points in his last five. He only played 25 minutes on the night, but this was most likely due to the game getting out of hand in the second half.

Dwight Howard scores 20-plus against Boston  photo
Coming into the game, Dwight Howard had been a little bothered by a rib injury, but he was able to play, and saw a healthy dose of minutes. Although he had a slow night on the boards, with three rebounds, he scored 21 points on an impressive 10-of-15 shooting from the field. It was the first time this year that Howard had less than five rebounds while playing at least 20 minutes, but on the bright side, it was his third highest scoring total over the past month.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will not play Wednesday versus Celtics photo
After being listed as questionable earlier in the day, the Hornets went ahead and ruled Michael-Kidd Gilchrist out with left hamstring soreness. The small forward is usually a starter for the squad, and with his absence, Treveon Graham will slot in to make his second start of the season.
Frank Kaminsky delivers again on Sunday  photo
Whatever it is, Frank Kaminsky has found something that clicks since the All-Star break, as he is averaging 13.3 points, six rebounds, and three assists over the three-game span. On Sunday, he had 13 points and eight boards, his best rebounding performance over the last month. Maybe it's just an aberration, but he's also seeing minutes in the 20's in each of the games.
