Bobcats crushed by Grizzlies, return favor to Celtics

Game 3 Bobcats @ Grizzlies
[Pardon the interruption, I invite you to click on one of the ads on my page. It will not cost you anything and it will send me some change. I have only allowed small ads at the bottom of each post. I now return you to my regularly scheduled programming.]

The Bobcats were down by 5 points in the first quarter before they went on a 7-0 run to take a 7-5 lead. That was the only lead of the game for the Bobcats. The Grizzlies finished the quarter on an 11-4 run to take an 18-11 at the end of the first quarter. The Bobcats could not keep the Grizzlies from scoring and the Grizzlies raced out to a 29-20 lead by halftime. It was more of the same in the third quarter as the Grizzlies won that quarter by 21-12. The Bobcats did outscore the Grizzlies 18-14 as they tried to make a comeback, but it was all for naught.

Odd stat. 3rd leading Bobcats scorer had 5 points in on 2 minutes.

Game 4 0-3 Bobcats @ 2-0 Celtics
The Bobcats stunned the Celtics in Boston. The Celtics started the game with the first lead at 2-0. The Bobcats raced out to a 10-5 lead in the first quarter before the Celtics made a run to cut the lead to 10-8. That two point margin was the closest the Celtics were able to get for the rest of the game. The Cats went on a 6-2 run to finish the quarter. In the second quarter the Bobcats led 27-15 before the Celtics went on a 5-4 run in an attempt to get closer. In the third quarter the Bobcats scored 8 points before the Celtics could blink. The Celtics finished the quarter on a 9-6 run and began to look like the Celtics might come back. This was not to be as the Bobcats won the fourth quarter 17-6.
odd stat of the night - Ray Allen was 2-6 from the three point line.
