Bobcats 94, Celtics 91: Byron Mullens racked up 25 points and 18 rebounds and Ramon Sessions added 19 points, including the go-ahead jumper with 25.7 seconds left, as host Charlotte snapped Boston's seven-game win streak. 

Kemba Walker added 18 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Bobcats and knocked down two free throws with 14 seconds left to help ice it. The Celtics had two chances to tie it on their final possession, but Paul Pierce and Avery Bradley each missed 3-pointers and Jeffery Taylor pulled down a rebound to seal it. 

Jeff Green scored 18 points and Kevin Garnett added 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Celtics, who lost for the first time since losing point guard Rajon Rondo for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. 

The Bobcats led 77-72 after Sessions' jumper with 11:17 left in the game, but the Celtics reeled off a 10-0 run to regain control. Gerald Henderson's layup with 3:58 left put the Bobcats ahead 85-84, but Jason Terry answered with a 3-pointer at the other end and Boston pushed the margin to 91-87.
