=== Boston Celtics Team Report – November 13 ===

(Sports Network) – The Boston Celtics were surprised by the Chicago Bulls,
89-82, Wednesday at FleetCenter.

Mike James scored a career-high 18 points for Boston, which had its two-game
winning streak snapped. Paul Pierce had 14 points and eight assists in the
loss.

The Bulls carried a two-point lead into the final stanza, but increased their
advantage with an 11-2 burst to begin the fourth quarter. Scottie Pippen
buried a three-pointer to ignite the run and Jamal Crawford’s three capped it
to give Chicago a 76-65 lead with 9:28 remaining.

Boston responded with a 13-4 run capped by James’ sixth three-pointer of the
contest to get within two, 80-78, with 4:12 to play. The Bulls, however, put
the game away by scoring nine of the final 11 points in the game.

The Celtics were 8-of-27 from three-point range.

Boston is off until Friday when it hosts rookie sensation LeBron James and the
Cleveland Cavaliers.
