Pistons lead the Bulls by 18 in Chicago at halftime.

Rick Bonnell

Jared Sullinger has a minor ankle sprain. Being re-taped. Sounds like it's likely he'll return.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats don't have anyone who can guard Jeff Green right now.

Rick Bonnell

Now four fouls on Gerald Henderson and MKG. Bobcats running out of wings who can guard.

Rick Bonnell

Some guy just asked a girl to be his prom date via the Garden scoreboard. Like that better than timeout marriage proposals.

Rick Bonnell

This is sure not the Bobcats defense Brad Stevens was gushing about pre-game.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats letting Gerald Henderson play with four fouls.

Rick Bonnell

Jeff Green is one tough matchup for MKG. That iso looked too easy.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Celtics 57, Bobcats 55. Methinks the playoff team is quite fortunate Rondo was a late scratch.

Rick Bonnell

Pistons are up 10 in Chicago.

Rick Bonnell

I'm thinking Gary Neal really enjoyed Brandon Bass switching off on him.

Rick Bonnell

Third foul against Gerald Henderson ends his first half.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson with an open-court strip of Jeff Green. Maybe Big Al as the fill-in point guard?

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats pull ahead by nine. For those of you engaged by the Ridnour-Pargo debate (many based on tweets), lead was built with Pargo.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Bobcats 29, Celtics 28.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics take a lot of bad shots early in possessions. Those teams tend not to win.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al has 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting. He must have heard I voted him 2nd team All-NBA.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics better get Jared Sullinger some help or Al Jefferson is going to stomp on him Godzilla-style.

Rick Bonnell

Nothing says NBA amazing like this Luke-Ridnour-Phil Pressey showdown.

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Wallace in street clothes. but still in pre-game huddle with Celtics.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics crowds gave Al Jefferson a big hand. He started out his NBA career in Boston.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats' Kemba Walker, Celtics' Rajon Rondo both out for tonight's game. Walker could miss tomorrow, too: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Rajon Rondo will NOT play tonight for Celtics. Left shin bruise.

Rick Bonnell

No Kemba tonight. Maybe tomorrow. Ridnour starting.

Rick Bonnell

Kris Humphries (knee tendinitis) will play tonight for Celtics tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Tomorrow vs. 76ers is Bobcats' fan appreciation night. T-shirts to 1st 10K thru the doors, prize giveaways.

Rick Bonnell

Interesting stat on Bobcats-76ers games: The Bobcats have made more free throws (61) than the Sixers have attempted (59).

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats' last regular-season home game versus Bulls is now a 7 p.m. tipoff.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker "questionable" or worse with a groin injury: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

I'd be surprised if Kemba plays tonight. So close to playoffs, his health is more important than toughing through a regular-season game.

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker is questionable for Celtics game tonight with a sore groin. He suffered the injury late in the Wizards game.

Rick Bonnell

RealGM says Pelicans are going to sign ex-Bobcat James Southerland.

Anthony Tolliver

That's how I feel about him too lol. Hes amazing @rspedel @Anthony Tolliver that's how bobcat's fans feel about Al Jefferson

Rick Bonnell

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.

Rick Bonnell

My burst-out-in-laughter moment: Someone innocently asked, "Do the Bobcats play on TV?" @BobcatsMartin must get the irony.

Rick Bonnell

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.

Bismack Biyombo

You can't learn what it mean to PERSEVERE without suffering! #howwehandlethings

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats have signed DJ White for the remainder of the season.

family group shot after a great win in Washington. my fam is always there. off to Boston ✈️✈️✈️ instagram.com/p/ml7x92sawp/

Rick Bonnell

Final: Bobcats 94, Wizards 88 in OT.

Rick Bonnell

John Wall will likely end up with a triple-double tonight, but he's 4-of-14 from the field.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Bobcats 71, Wizards 66.

Rick Bonnell

And then Webster makes a 3.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards have missed all nine of their 3-point attempts.

Rick Bonnell

Remarkable the way this game started that Wizards are now outshooting Bobcats 50 percent to 41 percent from the field.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Bobcats 54, Wizards 41.

Rick Bonnell

Cavs are beating the Pistons by 30 in the second quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards can do a lot of damage along the 3-point line. Not tonight: Bobcats outscoring Wizards from the arc 18-0.

Rick Bonnell

McRoberts has made four of six shots in his first game back from ankle sprain.

Rick Bonnell

And just like that on next possession, Biz called for a foul for impeding Nene at the other end.

Rick Bonnell

Nene gets two loose-ball fouls on same Charlotte possession.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Bobcats 32, Wizards 18. Bobcats made 13 of 22 attempts.

Rick Bonnell

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist statement on his high school teammate announcing that he's gay: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Not exactly "playoff fever" at Verizon minutes before tip-off. http://t.co/1Ad3LMwfXH

Rick Bonnell

Josh McRoberts will play and start for Bobcats tonight. He missed the last three games with a sprained ankle.

Rick Bonnell

"We became a one-pass, or no pass, and shot (team). Can't do that." -- Wizards' Wittman on the 2nd half meltdown in Charlotte.

Rick Bonnell

Sounds like Nene can play about 15-20 minutes tonight versus Bobcats.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards have blown 11double-digit leads, only to lose, this season.

Rick Bonnell

"This is basically the biggest game of the season for us." -- Wizards guard John Wall.

Rick Bonnell

Henderson says this a "playoff game." Others wonder if this is all that: charlotteobserver.com/2014/04/08/482…

Bismack Biyombo

We all got some to say... The difference is How and when? http://t.co/gibRSJ5Dps

Rick Bonnell

Everyone counting Bobcats sure wins: Did you see Pistons beating Hawks? That's why Clifford is wary of standing-watch.

Rick Bonnell

Hawks threw away huge advantage for last spot in East tonight. Not saying Knicks can catch, but now NY has major incentive against Raps.

Rick Bonnell

It's a Mason Plumlee world tonight.

Rick Bonnell

So you ask yourself: How might LeBron James ever solve the mystery that is Mason Plumlee The new Mutombo.

Rick Bonnell

It would sure be nice if the Heat could find one way, someway, to beat the Nets.

Rick Bonnell

Everyone who claims if Bobcats beat the Wizards, they run the table: Did you see Wolves beating Spurs? Stuff happens.

Rick Bonnell

Brooklyn beating Heat by 3. Great stuff.

Rick Bonnell

BTW, Nets 3 behind Heat after winning first three. In the NFL this would be a very big thing.

Rick Bonnell

Pistons beat the Hawks start to finish: 1. Stop trashing the Pistons for tanking. 2. How could the Hawks be such a punching bag?

Rick Bonnell

A Nets-Heat second-round series would be really entertaining in this regard: Brooklyn has no reason to defer to the champs.

Rick Bonnell

I'd say Hawks are fickle, but that would imply this is within their control. @Chris Vivlamore must have no idea what he'll watch each game.

Rick Bonnell

Not saying Pistons ultimately win. But Pistons lead Hawks by 6 at halftime. Seems to negate a week of "Detroit blatantly tanking" chatter.
