Game Recap: Bobcats vs. Celtics

January 10, 2008

One thing the Bobcats were not last night was intimidated. Not by the record, not by the winning streak, not by the home crowd, and most certainly not by the Celtics’ suddenly vaunted defense.

As we learned in last year’s playoff series between Golden State and Dallas, some teams simply match up well against others. Charlotte certainly has played Golden State to Boston’s Dallas this year, pushing the Celtics to, and now beyond, the brink in their two meetings this season.

Charlotte played hungry last night, attacking the basket, the boards, and sub-par Celtics one-on-one defense from the game’s start. Rarely have teams so handily outscored the Celtics in the paint this season, but a couple key factors attributed to the 42-28 disparity that the Bobcats enjoyed.

After a back-to-back against the Pacers and Nets, the Celtics looked rejuvenated following their rest day, as did the Boston fans. Then again, that is in comparison to how the Celtics fans acted when Jersey was in town, and in fairness to the Boston crowd, that’s like taking an Ambien and going to a middle school chorus recital.

The extra energy, while most noticeable in how the C’s ran in transition all game long, nearly derailed the Celtics at the end, with Boston committing untimely turnovers and ill-advised, near game-costing fouls. Luckily, Captain P came to the rescue, scoring the game winning basket with 22 seconds left, and Boston walked away a 92-91 victor and 8-0 on the season.

Normally I would have taken game notes on the contest in Indianapolis tonight, but I missed the first 6 minutes of the game, then realized it was against the Pacers. Indiana fans don’t even care about the Pacers (as evidenced by the mere 12,000 in attendance at the game), why would you? So you get a game recap instead.
