Welcome to the Garden, where the Boston Celtics (20-47) will take on the Charlotte Bobcats (25-43) at 7:30 p.m.
The Celtics and Bobcats come into this game in a race for the league’s second-worst record and a better chance at one of the top two picks in the NBA draft. The Celtics are five games worse (depending on how you want to look at it) than the Bobcats in the win column and four games worse in the loss column.
The Memphis Grizzlies (17-51) have the NBA’s worst record. Memphis has yet to win consecutive games this season. You read that correctly: not even two in a row.
Gomes has not played since injuring his foot March 7 against Houston. We’ll get his official status for tonight when the Celtics release it shortly before the game. It’s Ryan Gomes Bobblehead Night at the Garden, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
We’ll be back in a bit with comments from the Celtics locker room.
