8 a.m. The Celtics continue their two-day tour of the NBA's doldrums when they visit Charlotte on Monday. The Bobcats (7-39) are the worst team in the NBA, three games behind Sunday's opponent, the lowly Washington Wizards, in the Southeast Division standings. The Bobcats have not won consecutive games all season and lost 16 straight games at one point. They are coming off a loss to the Nets, who occupy last place in the Atlantic Division. The Celtics (26-22) will be looking for their second consecutive win and a chance to pull into a tie with the 76ers for first...

The always outspoken TNT analyst says this year's Kentucky squad is so stacked that they could beat a few of the NBA's bottom-feeding franchises.
Some may consider this no big deal, but I think it is. The supposed head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats stepped aside Saturday night and let his son—who does happen to be one of his assistant coaches—and let him coach the team. Apparently it was not the first time he’s done this but the fifth. [...]
Watching the Charlotte Bobcats play basketball brings to mind the shower scene in Bull Durham. What's their record? Seven and 39. How did they ever win seven? As they grind through their seventh dismal campaign in eight seasons of existence, the Bobcats are comfortably mired in last place in the Southeast Division entering Monday's game against the Celtics. The Bobcats are...
Coach Paul Silas is allowing his son, Stephen, to run the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night against the New Jersey Nets.
Stephen Silas is his father's top assistant. This will mark the fifth time he has coached the team this season. Twice he took over after his father was ejected, while he coached the team for games against the Nets on March 9 and Toronto on March 17.
After the Bobcats lost to Milwaukee on Saturday, Rick Bonnell wrote that it “was the 20th time in a 7-38 season the Bobcats have lost by 20 or more points.” Well the joke’s on you, Rick: it’s only been 15 games. How do you like them apples, sucker? I actually went back and counted to [...]
Not a lot of chatting on the Bobcat message boards. It's kind of refreshing that they didn't spend all their time complaining about the refs even through said refs were trying to set a record for the most fouls called in a game. I was almost glad the Celtics gave them some enjoyment when the Celtics pulled their incredible shrinking lead trick again. Even though there...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Paul Pierce scored a season-high 36 points and the Boston Celtics held on to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 102-95 Monday night to move into a first-place tie with Philadelphia 76ers in the Atlantic Division.
Pierce shot 10 of 20 from the field, made 15 of 18 free throws and added 10 rebounds and four assists.
Pierce has scored 20 or more points in five of the...
The Celtics took home a victory tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats, 102-95. The Bobcats proved to be just as hapless and hopeless as advertised with really nobody worth mentioning on the team that stands out (except for DJ Augustine thanks to his Texas roots). The Celtics really just controlled this game completely with Paul Pierce [...]
How many times have we seen this before: teams tanking the season in order to secure the number one pick in the draft? Unfortunately for the Charlotte Bobcats, securing the number one pick takes more than having the worst record in the league. Unlike the NFL which automatically rewards the worst team with the first pick in the draft, the NBA has a lottery system that decides where...
