There won’t be many times this season that the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers lose on the same day. But it happened Wednesday. Oh, and the Bronx finally caught a glimpse of the New York Yankees’ latest multi-millionaire, Mark Teixeira.

The New Orleans Hornets out-scored the Lakers 27-13 in the fourth quarter in winning 116-105, snapping Los Angeles’ 15-game home winning streak.

Boston meanwhile was knocked off on the road 114-106 by the Charlotte Bobcats. After the Celtics started the season with an NBA record 27-2 record, Boston have dropped five of the last seven games.
