The Charlotte Bobcats basketball side has stunned the Boston Celtics with a 114-106 win in overtime to hand the NBA champions their fifth loss in seven games.

Three players scored over 20 points as the Bobcats won for just the 13th time in 35 games this season.

Paul Pierce top scored for the Celtics with 28 points but coach Doc Rivers says it was a poor defensive performance that sunk the Celtics.
