Boston Celtics v Charlotte Hornets

Tired Hornets Fall to Celtics, 116-104

I used to always talk about the Bobcats losing games that they shouldn’t have and winning games that they shouldn’t have.  I used to talk about how when we would play a team worse than us, we would play down to their level.  Last night, at home, with playoff implications pending, the Hornets did not […]
