Thomas (ankle) injured, C's blown out, trail 3-2

A promising night turned into a disaster for the Celtics. 

Kent Bazemore keyed a 26-6 run in the first half to turn a 10-point Celtic lead into a 10-point Atlanta advantage. Then the Hawks caught fire in the third quarter, using an 18-1 run to blow Game 5 wide open en route to a 110-83 rout of the Celtics at Philips Arena Tuesday and a 3-2 series lead. 

Isaiah Thomas, the leading scorer in the NBA playoffs so far, had one of the worst nights in a Celtics uniform, going scoreless in the first half and finishing with just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting before leaving with what the team called a “mild” left ankle sprain with 10 minutes left in the game. 

With Paul Millsap in check at 10 points, Mike Scott came off the bench to lead Atlanta with 17. Bazemore and Jeff Teague had 16 for the Hawks, who went 14-of-36 from 3-point range. 

The Celtics started off nearly as cold in Game 5 as they did their last game in...

Red Sox OK with Pablo's shoulder when signed

ATLANTA — The Red Sox should be getting some clarity on the Pablo Sandoval situation in less than a week.

Red Sox manager John Farrell reported before his team’s game against the Braves Tuesday night that Sandoval is slated to return to Dr. James Andrews Monday for a full exam on his ailing right shoulder. The third baseman wasn’t able to conduct the originally scheduled second opinion due to discomfort in the area.

In the meantime, here are some answers to questions surrounding the situation …

THE TEAM WAS AWARE OF SANDOVAL’S SHOULDER HISTORY

Through reviewing Sandoval’s medical history with the Giants, and the physical the Sox conducted at the time signing the free agent, the Red Sox did have what they considered enough information on a shoulder that had given the player problems in 2011. But the nature/severity of the injury wasn’t considered anything more than what the...

ATLANTA — The Red Sox should be getting some clarity on the Pablo Sandoval situation in less than a week.

Price fans 14, Shaw drives in 5 in blowout win
By: DJ Bean

One way for David Price to end a thoroughly disappointing first month with the Red Sox: tying his career high in strikeouts in his longest outing in a Boston uniform.

Making his fifth start for the Sox, Price fanned 14 batters over a season-high eight innings and received ample run support in an 11-4 win over the Braves that saw Travis Shaw drive in five runs.

Price settled down from a busy first inning to have what turned out to be a very strong performance against a Braves offense that entered Tuesday 27th in the league with a .227 batting average.

The veteran left-hander loaded the bases in the first inning after allowing an RBI single to Jeff Francoeur, but he escaped without further damage by striking out Drew Stubbs to end the inning.

Price followed up the first by turning in back-to-back 1-2-3 innings with a pair of strikeouts in each. He ran into trouble again in the fourth inning, once again loading the bases and...

Brees: Goodell 'definitely has too much power'

Tom Brady has another quarterback in his corner — Drew Brees.

Brees spoke to a number of different media outlets on Tuesday for a promotion and naturally Deflategate and Brady’s suspension came up.

“I think we would all agree that he definitely has too much power,” Brees said of Goodell via SI.com. “He is judge, jury and executioner when it comes to all the discipline. I’m not going to trust any league-led investigation, when it comes to anything. It’s not transparent.

“At times, I feel like there is a desired conclusion or agenda that they have in mind and that may prevent the absolute truth from being told or the absolute facts from being presented. At the end of the day, we as the public. We as players don’t ever get to really see that. We don’t get to see those facts, those truths and those things....
