Wow......who saw this coming?

We have been bragging about the Boston Celtics all season long. The Celts have the best record in the NBA. They have not one, not two........but three legitimate superstars in Kevin Garnette, Ray Allen and Paul Peirce. They had just completed a west coast road trip that saw them annihilate Seattle, Sacramento, Utah and the LA Lakers to close out the month of December.

The new year saw these Celtics beat Yao Ming and Houston.....edge an inspired Memphis team......and won the showdown with Detroit, 92-85.

So it's safe to say as the Celtics prepared for Wednesday's match up with the Charlotte Bobcats......they weren't exactly expecting the Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls of the nineties.

Even with Ray Allen sitting this one out with a pinched nerve .....the Celtics were heavy favorites in Vegas.

But a funny thing happened. The Bobcats defeated Boston, 95-83 in what might be the biggest upset of the 2008-09 season. Consider..........Charlotte had a record of 12-24 entering last night. They had won only 1 road game out of their first 11.

Maybe that pep talk Jordan gave the team a few days ago worked. Or maybe this is what happens once in a while during a grueling 82 game schedule.......Go figure.......

Check out the Box score.
