Match-up to Watch
Kevin Garnett vs. Bobcats big men: Garnett is not your typical center, with enough shooting range to drag defenders well outside the paint. That makes it rough to guard him with Bismack Biyombo.
The Celtics had a huge loss recently when point guard Rajon Rondo was diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, ending his season.
• The Celtics also lost promising rookie Jared Sullinger with a back injury.
• Boston played at home Saturday night vs. the Denver Nuggets. Most of New England spent the weekend digging out from a blizzard.
• After losing Ray Allen to Miami in free agency, the Celtics replaced him with Jason Terry.
• The Celtics have won four in a row over the Bobcats.
