Olynyk, Celtics keep Sixers reeling in Philly

Kelly Olynyk netted a career-high 30 points to help lead the Celtics to a 105-87 win over the lowly Sixers, in Philadelphia. (For a complete box score, click here.)

Philadelphia (2-22) dropped to 0-13 at home this season, staying in contention for the NBA record more most home losses to begin a campaign. (The 1993-94 Mavericks started 0-19.)

The win snaps a three-game losing streak for the Celtics, who had beaten Philly in the teams’ only other meeting this season.

The C’s broke open a five-point lead in the first quarter with a 27-13 second quarter, thanks in large part to Olynyk’s 18 first-half points.

Sox receive SS Hernandez for Doubront

The Red Sox announced they they’ve received shortstop Marco Hernandez from the Cubs as the player to be named later in the deal that sent left-hander Felix Doubront to the Cubs on July 30. Hernandez, who turned 22 in September, spent the year with High-A Daytona in the Florida State League, hitting .270 with a .315 OBP, .351 slugging mark, three homers and 22 steals (in 30 attempts). Signed out of the Dominican in 2009, Hernandez has spent most of his career at shortstop, while also getting some exposure to second base, a handful of games at third and one in right.

The switch-hitter is described as a better hitter from the left side (he hit .288/.334/.387 against right-handed pitchers and .227/.267/.266 against lefties). An evaluator described him as a good athlete who is a plus defender at...

Belichick: No problem with Brady not sliding

After Tom Brady delivered a 17-yard scramble in Sunday’s 41-13 win over the Dolphins, the quarterback joked after the game that he’d likely hear it from the coaches about how he didn’t slide at the end of the run, but instead finished off the run by crashing into Miami safety Walt Aikens.

“No, I could have slid, but I wasn’€™t in the best mood that time,” Brady said after the game. “If he was a bigger guy I would have thought really hard about sliding, but once I was in the secondary, things happen pretty quick for me out there.

“I’m not the fastest guy out there, so things close down pretty quick.”

But it sounds like...

Lester: Trade 'broke barrier' for leaving Sox

Jon Lester, at the press conference introducing him with the Cubs upon the completion of his six-year, $155 million deal, said that the Red Sox‘ decision to trade him to the A’s at the July 31 deadline (along with Jonny Gomes in exchange for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes) did impact his view of the free agent process. Lester said that it became easier to imagine changing organizations once he experienced success with a new club. (After going 10-7 with a 2.52 ERA in 21 starts with the Red Sox, Lester went 6-4 with a 2.35 ERA in 11 starts for the A’s.)

“I think so,” Lester told reporters of whether being...

Belichick: Early struggles due to 'bad coaching'

Bill Belichick left no doubt as to who deserved most of the blame for the series of misfires at the end of the first half on Sunday against the Dolphins.

With less than two minutes to go and backed up against their own goal line, the Patriots called three running plays before punting the ball away. Then, there were defensive breakdowns across the board that allowed Miami to post a touchdown with five seconds left to draw to within one point at halftime.

New England posted 27 second-half points on the way to a 41-13 win, but the sequence was still gnawing at Belichick the next day.

“You just want to put the whole thing on me — bad coaching,” he said Monday morning on a conference call with the media. “It was a poor end of the half. Nothing we did is the way we wanted it to go, and so that’€™s my fault. So it’€™s bad coaching, I...
