Byron Mullens put forth a monster performance
of 25 points and 18 rebounds to help the Charlotte Bobcats knock the wheels
off the Boston Celtics’ seven-game roll with a 94-91 victory on Monday.

Mullens connected on 10-of-16 shots from the field — including 4-for-5 from
3-point range — and Ramon Sessions put the Bobcats ahead for good with his
jumper late, helping halt Charlotte’s seven-game losing streak. Sessions
contributed 19 points for the game.

Kemba Walker and Gerald Henderson added 18 and 16 points, respectively, in the
victory.

Just a day removed from their thrilling triple-overtime victory over the
Nuggets, the Celtics saw their late four-point advantage whittle away down the
stretch.

Kevin Garnett tallied 16 points and 13 rebounds while Paul Pierce finished
with 13 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in Boston’s first setback
since Rajon Rondo’s season-ending ACL injury on Jan. 25.
