Celtics tipped over by Anthony Davis and the Hornets 86-87

Pierce couldn't get the game winner and neither could Eric Gordon, but Anthony Davis was there to tip it in for the win.


With a double digit lead, the Celtics were looking good in the first half. But things fell apart in the 2nd half and the Hornets pulled off the upset win.

So let me get this straight. We almost beat the Heat without Kevin Garnett then we go out and lose to the Hornets/Pelicans with him? Yeah, that makes all the sense in the world. I like our chances against the 72 win Bulls but I'm sure we'd lose to the 2012 Bobcats (oddly enough, both involve Michael Jordan). Another bi-polar day for a bi-polar team.
