THE RESULT
The Bobcats snapped the Celtics seven-game winning streak by pulling out a 94-91 win on February 11 at Time Warner Cable Arena®. The Cats were led by Byron Mullens, who notched his seventh double-double of the season with 25 points and a career-high 18 rebounds.

TURNING POINTS
The Bobcats were down, 48-42, at halftime, but opened the second half on a 7-0 run to take a one-point lead. The Celtics went on a run of their own, but the Cats battled back and headed into the fourth quarter with a 75-72 lead… The two teams traded baskets down the stretch with neither side holding more than a five-point lead… The Bobcats held the Celtics scoreless for the last 2:14 of action as they scored the last seven points. Ramon Sessions hit the go-ahead jumper with 25.7 seconds left to give the Bobcats a one-point lead. Kemba Walker sank two free throws for the final points of the contest and the Cats defense made sure the Celtics didn’t get a good look at the basket as time expired.

INSIDE THE BOX SCORE
In a game with 13 lead changes and 11 ties, the Bobcats bested the Celtics in most categories, including rebounds (47-44), points in the paint (34-32), second-chance points (9-6) and fast-break points (15-9). To show how evenly matched the contest was, the two teams each had 10 turnovers, six steals and seven blocks… The Cats defense only allowed the Celtics to shoot 41.6 percent from the floor while making 42.9 percent on their own end… The difference maker in this one may have been the big third quarter for the Cats, when they posted 33 points, as both teams scored 19 in the final frame.

INSIDE THE LOCKER ROOM
"It’s very nice, especially coming off the Philly game. I think I was 0-4 from the three and 4-5 tonight. It’s a short memory. The 18 rebounds, I’d rather have that than the 25 points because that’s what I’m not known for. I just have to show the league and our organization that I can rebound. I’ve come a long way. I had that first year under my belt last year playing. I’ve been in the league four years, but last year was like my first year, so I just got my feet wet and now I’m taking off."
- Bobcats forward Byron Mullens on his play tonight

"Byron Mullens was as good as you can get in the NBA statistically in many ways. He’s still young. He’s growing. I thought Bismack (Biyombo) disturbed (Kevin) Garnett a lot. As far as execution, probably in the last six plays, perfection was what we needed and that’s what we got. Kemba (Walker) hit his free throws. Ramon (Sessions) and Kemba played a two-man game and Gerald’s big three gave us life. Every defensive rebound that we could go after, we went after, so it was good to see the execution on both sides, not just offense. I thought the defense was what made the difference coming down the stretch."
- Bobcats Head Coach Mike Dunlap on tonight's game
