Boston Celtics Can’t Handle the Charlotte Bobcats

It’s not often that they run into someone with Joe Frazier tendencies – a team that is capable, on a given night, of forcing the Celtics to trade punches. The surprising difference last night was the standard of opponent throwing the body shots – a Charlotte team that was one of the worst road units in the NBA, and yet the one to hand the Celtics their first double-digit loss of the season. The Celtics’ 95-83 loss gave the Bobcats just their second road win of the season. The C’s, in turn, lost for only the second time at home while shooting a cold 41.7 percent from the floor, with Paul Pierce (4-of-14, 13 points) and Eddie House (3-of-10, seven points) epitomizing the offensive struggle.
