Celtics vs. Bobcats Preview

The Celts (13-10) take on the Bobcats (3-21) tonight at the Garden.  Completely turning it around this season, the Celtics are 8-2 in their last 10 games and are currently riding a 4 game win streak.  Charlotte, on the other hand, have lost 11 straight. At this point, 48 year old majority owner Michael Jordan should consider putting himself into the lineup.

Paul Pierce is averaging 18.6 points per game after an extremely slow start for him (plus an injury).  He is now only 9 points behind Larry Bird for the Celtics all-time scoring leaders.
1. John Havlicek      26,395

The Celtics are now #11 in the power rankings, 5 spots better than last week.  They are 2nd in points allowed per game with 86.7 ppg (the 76ers are the only team better with 86.5 ppg).  However, we are only averaging 90.7 points per game.
