Gerald Henderson 35 points, Bobcats beat Celtics
This is how Gerald Henderson describes what he hears from coach Mike Dunlap these days:
“He wants me to shoot it every time. He wants me to think, ‘SCORE’ every time.”
It doesn’t always work out that way. Henderson is a reluctant ball hog. But Tuesday he was on a preposterous roll that led to a preposterous score: Charlotte Bobcats 100, Boston Celtics 74.
Suspend your disbelief; this really did happen for a Bobcats team on a 10-game losing streak and an NBA-worst 14-50 record.
This was Charlotte’s widest margin of victory since January of 2010, when the Bobcats beat the Miami Heat 104-65. Many contributed, but none came close to shooting guard Henderson, who finished with a career-high 35 points.
