Celtics: Henderson lifts Bobcats over Celtics 100-74

(AP) — Gerald Henderson had a career-high 35 points, and the Charlotte Bobcats snapped a 10-game losing streak with a 100-74 win over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

Henderson was 11 of 19 from the field and knocked down all 12 of his foul shots.

Ben Gordon scored 17 points and new starting forward Josh McRoberts had his first double-double for Charlotte with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

The Bobcats (14-50) doubled last season’s win total and posted their largest margin of victory this season.

The Celtics, playing without Paul Pierce, looked like a team that has played nine of its last 11 games on the road. Jeff Green and Jordan Crawford each had 14 points for Boston.
