Decembe 11, 2010
 
A sellout crowd is expected at Time
Warner Cable Arena tonight for the Boston Celtics first appearance in Charlotte
this season. The Celtics have won 9 straight, surviving a one-point win at
Philadelphia Thrusday night. The Bobcats fell victim to the 3-ball last night.
Indiana hit 13 3-pointers enroute to a 100-92 win.
 
Stephen Jackson
looked like he was unstoppable over the game's first 8 minutes last night. He
hit his first 6 shots, but missed 10 of his next 11 and wound up with 15 points
on the night. Boris Diaw only scored 6, all of those after halftime and DJ
Augustin managed 8 points.  
 
Only one of the Bobcats' big four scorers
enjoyed any success. Gerald Wallace scored 26, 22 of them in the second half. He
also pulled down 14 rebounds for his 7th double-double of the
season.
 
Tyrus Thomas is doubtful for tonight with a quad strain on the
left leg.
 
The Celtics routed the Bobcats three times last season. The
margins were 33, 18 and 24.
 
Rajon Rondo is the mastermind and many
refer to him as part of the big three now, with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
Ray Allen, however, has averaged 25.5 points per game over the last two. Allen
likes the TWC floor. He won a game ona alast second three pointer there 4 years
ago.
 
Game time is 7, we''l start covereage at 6:30 on Bobcats live.
