[SUPER=03-Charlotte, NC/Celtics vs. Hornets; :00]


Silas was all smiles most of the game as his outmanned Hornets outhuslted the Celtics.
J.R. Reid played hard in this one. Watch him work hard on the baseline and maneuver his way inside for the hoop as the Hornets led at the half and after three.

Ron Mercer would try to shoot the Celtics back into contention, but his points were not enough as the Hornets win it for Silas and not Pitino 105-to-87.
