Slumping Cats lose to Celtics and then make a big trade.

The Bobcats went into Boston and despite making a good game of it still lost.

1st quarter
The Celtics raced out to a 11-2 lead with 2:30 left in the first quarter. The Bobcats then went on a 11-6 run to close the gap to 13-17 heading into the second quarter.

2nd quarter
The Bobcats continued their run and after going on a 11-4 run to start the second quarter the Bobcats held a 24-21 lead with 4:06 lead. The Celtics then went on a 10-2 run to take a 31-26 lead with 1:49 left in the quarter. The Bobcats finished the quarter on a 6-0 run to take a 32-31 lead going into halftime after drawing a second charging foul on Paul Pierce (his third in the first half).

3rd quarter
The Bobcats held a 38-37 lead with 4:10 left in the third after Pierce picked up his fourth foul! The Celtics got a little ticked off at the refs and took it out on the bobcats by going on a 9-3 run to take a 46-41 lead with 50 seconds left in the quarter. The Cats cut that lead to 46-48 by the end of the third quarter.

4th quarter
The Celtics held a 51-46 lead when Pierce picked up his fifth foul with 4:55 left in the game! Unfortunately the Cats were not able to take advantage of his absence. The Celtics were able to take a 56-48 lead with 4:13 left. The Bobcats made a run and cut the lead to 55-56 with 2:42 left. With 43 seconds left the Celtics held a 62-47 lead. The Bobcats tried to hoist up a three that missed, thankfully one of the bobcats was able to put in driving layup with 10 seconds left. It didn't matter as the Bobcats could not force a turnover and lost 66-62.

Odd Stat:  Eric Gordon continued his horrible shooting, as a result he got traded!

Hi guys, it's me again

SportsCenter Announcer 2: And it is I, Allen Iverson. What have you got for us Jack?

Jack
Manfred Nissley is at it again!

AI
What did he do this time?

Jack
He landed Monte Ellis!

AI
What did the Warriors get?

Jack
The received Eric Gordon, Dahntay Jones, and the Bobcats first round pick in 2013.

AI
Interesting trade. Jones is old and the 2013 Cats pick could go either way depending on how the Cats do next year and they might even get a steal in the draft! Furthermore they get Gordon. Gordon could become really good, but at this point the scouts say he has limited upside. From the Bobcats perspective they did not need that draft pick and it was chump change for them.

Jack
Thank you for the excellent analysis! I do have another question. What do you think of the Bobcats signing Jamario Moon?

AI
That is an interesting signing. With Jones leaving the Cats needed a decent veteran and they got that with Moon. He still has some hops which will make him a favorite with the home crowd. There are rumors that he wasn't allowed to show his hops with his former teams and that Bobcats are telling him to jump for the moon.

Jack
Thank you Allen! You provide so much more than either of my other co-hosts!
