      CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Ray Allen and Glen Davis scored 16 points
apiece and the Boston Celtics overcame a thin front line with
smothering defense in cruising to their 10th straight victory,
93-62 over the listless Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night.
      Kevin Garnett had 13 points and 11 rebounds and got to sit out
the fourth quarter as the Celtics weren't threatened after
halftime.
      Boston played its second straight game without center Shaquille
O'Neal, who was resting his sore right calf. With Jermaine O'Neal
(knee) still sidelined and Kendrick Perkins (knee surgery) out
until February, rookie Semih Erden started at center.
      Nazr Mohammed scored 14 points for the Bobcats, who got
miserable performances from Gerald Wallace and D.J. Augustin in
their second straight loss.
