Tonight, the Celtics will finally get to play an easier opponent when they visit the Bobcats. Charlotte currently sits at an NBA-worst 13-50. The C's will probably win this game, but you can't guarantee it. They still have to play hard. Here are tonight's five things: 5. GET GREEN HOT: Before I start ripping on all these guys for missing shots, I have to say that Sunday's game was against the Thunder. That game was harder. On Sunday, Green shot just 2/11. This needs a lot of improvement. 4. GET TERRY HOT: In OKC, Jason Terry shot just 3/8. He was just getting hot, and it sucks to watch him struggle again. Let's hope that he gets hot in shootaround. They'll need him down the stretch. 3. TAKE CARE OF THE BALL: On Sunday, the Celtics turned the ball over eighteen times while the Thunder only did it 14 times. They need some improvement on this, but this won't happen against the Bobcats. 2. BETTER FOURTH QUARTER: The Celtics could've beaten the Thunder with a good fourth quarter, but instead were out-played. They went into the final 12 minutes down by just 3, then were outscored by 9. 1. HELP OUT PIERCE: On Sunday, Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 20 points. Besides him, nobody else did anything. They need to pick up the pace before they lose all of their momentum. Tip-off for tonight's game will be at 7:00 pm ET. Live Game Updates will be available here.
