On the second playoff hole Sunday at the Masters, Bubba Watson curled a shot from out of the pine straw and safely onto the 10th green to narrowly edge South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen. Watson won by hitting a most-memorable wedge shot, one that may have trumped the historic double-eagle 2 that Oosthuizen dropped in on the second green to take the lead early in the final round. Both players finished regulation at 10-under 278.
The Celtics took a major step toward a fifth straight Atlantic Division title with a 103-79 cakewalk over the collapsing 76ers on Easter Sunday at TD Garden. Kevin Garnett led the way for the Celtics with 20 while Brandon Bass had 18 and Paul Pierce added 17. The Celtics improved to 32-24 and now have their biggest lead of the season in the division, as they lead by three games with just 10 remaining. Rajon Rondo had 15 assists while Avery Bradley chipped in with 18.
The Sixers entered the game leading the NBA by committing just 10.9 turnovers per game. The Celtics forced the Sixers into 11 in the first half alone. The Celtics were red-hot from the field, shooting 62 percent from the field and finishing up at 59 percent. They held Philadelphia to just 39 percent.
Since the Sixers beat the Celtics in Philadelphia on March 23, the two teams have headed in completely opposite directions. The Sixers have lost four straight and 6-of-8 while the...
The Red Sox survived a devastating defeat, blowing a three-run lead in the ninth inning and a two-run advantage in the 11th to suffer their second walkoff defeat in three games, this one by a 13-12 count. As was the case on Opening Day, the culprits were Alfredo Aceves and Mark Melancon, with Aceves giving up three runs in the ninth and Melancon allowing three in the 11th, including a two-out, two-run, walkoff homer by Alex Avila.
With the game tied 10-10 in the 11th, the Sox received run-scoring singles from Nick Punto and Dustin Pedroia to take a 12-10 lead. But Melancon permitted singles to Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder in the bottom of the inning, and after Fielder came around to score on a sac fly, Aviles blasted a 2-2 curveball into the right-field bleachers for the game-winning homer.
That erased an impressive performance by the Red Sox offense, which overcame a poor start by Clay Buchholz (four innings, seven runs). The Sox fell...
Celtics swingman Mickael Pietrus has passed the first of several concussion tests needed to receive clearance for a return to game action, coach Doc Rivers announced before Sunday's game against the Sixers.
It was against those same 76ers on March 23 that Pietrus was fouled by Lou Williams and fell awkwardly to the floor, twisting his back and snapping his head back in a whiplash fashion. Despite not hitting his head, Pietrus was on the floor for nearly 10 minutes before being carried out of Wells Fargo Center and held overnight in Philadelphia.
Pietrus was diagnosed with a concussion that left him in such discomfort that he could not walk anywhere without sunglasses. That had to improve before he was even cleared to undergo what are being termed "baseline" tests to determine the severity. There is still no timetable for a return.
But Doc Rivers sounded a bit more optimistic before Sunday's game, joking,...
