Pistons lead the Bulls by 18 in Chicago at halftime.
Jared Sullinger has a minor ankle sprain. Being re-taped. Sounds like it's likely he'll return.
Bobcats don't have anyone who can guard Jeff Green right now.
Now four fouls on Gerald Henderson and MKG. Bobcats running out of wings who can guard.
Some guy just asked a girl to be his prom date via the Garden scoreboard. Like that better than timeout marriage proposals.
This is sure not the Bobcats defense Brad Stevens was gushing about pre-game.
Bobcats letting Gerald Henderson play with four fouls.
Jeff Green is one tough matchup for MKG. That iso looked too easy.
Halftime: Celtics 57, Bobcats 55. Methinks the playoff team is quite fortunate Rondo was a late scratch.
Pistons are up 10 in Chicago.
I'm thinking Gary Neal really enjoyed Brandon Bass switching off on him.
Tie game, folks.
Third foul against Gerald Henderson ends his first half.
Al Jefferson with an open-court strip of Jeff Green. Maybe Big Al as the fill-in point guard?
Bobcats pull ahead by nine. For those of you engaged by the Ridnour-Pargo debate (many based on tweets), lead was built with Pargo.
End of first: Bobcats 29, Celtics 28.
Celtics take a lot of bad shots early in possessions. Those teams tend not to win.
Big Al has 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting. He must have heard I voted him 2nd team All-NBA.
Celtics better get Jared Sullinger some help or Al Jefferson is going to stomp on him Godzilla-style.
Nothing says NBA amazing like this Luke-Ridnour-Phil Pressey showdown.
Gerald Wallace in street clothes. but still in pre-game huddle with Celtics.
Celtics crowds gave Al Jefferson a big hand. He started out his NBA career in Boston.
Rajon Rondo will NOT play tonight for Celtics. Left shin bruise.
No Kemba tonight. Maybe tomorrow. Ridnour starting.
Kris Humphries (knee tendinitis) will play tonight for Celtics tonight.
Tomorrow vs. 76ers is Bobcats' fan appreciation night. T-shirts to 1st 10K thru the doors, prize giveaways.
Interesting stat on Bobcats-76ers games: The Bobcats have made more free throws (61) than the Sixers have attempted (59).
Bobcats' last regular-season home game versus Bulls is now a 7 p.m. tipoff.
I'd be surprised if Kemba plays tonight. So close to playoffs, his health is more important than toughing through a regular-season game.
Kemba Walker is questionable for Celtics game tonight with a sore groin. He suffered the injury late in the Wizards game.
RealGM says Pelicans are going to sign ex-Bobcat James Southerland.
Things that make you go "huh?" 2 smart women in Boston talking about how 1 got into Chapel Hill and one didn't. Not the end of world.
Random thought: I'm a longtime Red Sox fan and I get that TV pays the bills. But the Yankees-Sox overkill undermines the sport.
Bobcats have signed DJ White for the remainder of the season.

Final: Bobcats 94, Wizards 88 in OT.
John Wall will likely end up with a triple-double tonight, but he's 4-of-14 from the field.
End of third: Bobcats 71, Wizards 66.
And then Webster makes a 3.
Wizards have missed all nine of their 3-point attempts.
Remarkable the way this game started that Wizards are now outshooting Bobcats 50 percent to 41 percent from the field.
Halftime: Bobcats 54, Wizards 41.
Cavs are beating the Pistons by 30 in the second quarter.
Wizards can do a lot of damage along the 3-point line. Not tonight: Bobcats outscoring Wizards from the arc 18-0.
McRoberts has made four of six shots in his first game back from ankle sprain.
And just like that on next possession, Biz called for a foul for impeding Nene at the other end.
Nene gets two loose-ball fouls on same Charlotte possession.
End of first: Bobcats 32, Wizards 18. Bobcats made 13 of 22 attempts.
Not exactly "playoff fever" at Verizon minutes before tip-off. http://t.co/1Ad3LMwfXH
Josh McRoberts will play and start for Bobcats tonight. He missed the last three games with a sprained ankle.
"We became a one-pass, or no pass, and shot (team). Can't do that." -- Wizards' Wittman on the 2nd half meltdown in Charlotte.
Sounds like Nene can play about 15-20 minutes tonight versus Bobcats.
Wizards have blown 11double-digit leads, only to lose, this season.
"This is basically the biggest game of the season for us." -- Wizards guard John Wall.
We all got some to say... The difference is How and when? http://t.co/gibRSJ5Dps
Everyone counting Bobcats sure wins: Did you see Pistons beating Hawks? That's why Clifford is wary of standing-watch.
Hawks threw away huge advantage for last spot in East tonight. Not saying Knicks can catch, but now NY has major incentive against Raps.
It's a Mason Plumlee world tonight.
So you ask yourself: How might LeBron James ever solve the mystery that is Mason Plumlee The new Mutombo.
It would sure be nice if the Heat could find one way, someway, to beat the Nets.
Everyone who claims if Bobcats beat the Wizards, they run the table: Did you see Wolves beating Spurs? Stuff happens.
Brooklyn beating Heat by 3. Great stuff.
BTW, Nets 3 behind Heat after winning first three. In the NFL this would be a very big thing.
Pistons beat the Hawks start to finish: 1. Stop trashing the Pistons for tanking. 2. How could the Hawks be such a punching bag?
A Nets-Heat second-round series would be really entertaining in this regard: Brooklyn has no reason to defer to the champs.
Not saying Pistons ultimately win. But Pistons lead Hawks by 6 at halftime. Seems to negate a week of "Detroit blatantly tanking" chatter.
