Boston Celtics defeat Charlotte Bobcats, 108-100

While several players talked openly about the likely addition of veteran point guard Sam Cassell, Celtics coach Doc Rivers had a more immediate issue on his mind.

"I'm not worried about it," he said. "I'm worried about [Charlotte]."

Considering how the Celtics had struggled against the lowly Bobcats, Rivers had reason to be concerned. This game was no different as Boston held on for a 108-100 victory in front of a sellout crowd last night at TD Banknorth Garden.
