The Charlotte Bobcats have not won a basketball game since March 17 – 15 straight games. The Celtics will look to make sure the Bobcats losing streak is stretched to 16 games, as they travel to Charlotte on Sunday.

Ironically, the last team the Bobcats beat were the Toronto Raptors, whom the Celtics lost to on Friday night. The Cs bounced back last night by beating the Nets, 94-82.

Although the Bobcats look like an easy opponent on paper, it's unclear how the Celtics will respond to their third game in three nights. Due to the lockout-shortened season, every team was required to play at least one tripleback. This is the one and only occurrence for the Celtics.

This is the third meeting between these two teams this season. The Celtics have won the previous two. Tyrus Thomas and D.J. White are both questionable for tonight's game.
