Bobcats finish shredding of Boston's curtains

2010-11 Playoffs Round 3 Game 4 Charlotte @ Boston

The Bobcats continued the shredding of the Celtics shamrock curtains by clobbering them 55-33.
While this score sounds like a was. Late in the first quarter the Cats led 15-5. The Celtics then went on a 16-9 run to come within three by halftime. The Celtics were within three with four minutes to go in the third but the Cats turned it on, outscoring the Celtics 10-5 the rest of the quarter. In the fourth the Cats went on a 17-5 run that just saddened the Celtic fan base. To top that off Garnett stepped out of bounds late in the fourth. That really brought down the boos, of the few fans that were still around.

Odd Stat: Pierce was 1-11 tonight!

After that it was all Bobcats as they went on a 30-18 run to end the game.

Two Odd stats tonight as follows:
