Pierce leaves game with bruised knee

Celtics guard Paul Pierce left Thursday night's game at Portland late in the fourth quarter with a bruised right knee and is questionable for Friday's game with the Suns. According to reports, Pierce said that it started hurting in the third quarter, but he played through it until the final two minutes before heading back to the locker room. He told reporters in Portland that he hoped to play Friday, provided there was no swelling. This is apparently a new injury, different from the tweaked ankle that caused him to leave the Cleveland game on Tuesday.

Ugly but effective C's roll Blazers

It wasn't pretty, but the Celtics opened up their four-game West Coast trip with an 88-78 victory over the Trail Blazers on Thursday night. Paul Pierce scored 14 of his 17 points in the first half and Ray Allen took over in the third quarter with eight of his 18. Kendrick Perkins also had a strong night in his second game back with 10 points and nine rebounds in 21 minutes. Kevin Garnett added nine assists, including five in the third quarter when the Celtics began to get untracked.

 

The Celtics shot just 40 percent in the first half and turned it over 11 times, while allowing 12 offensive rebounds. That's normally a recipe for disaster for them, but they relied on their defense to get the win. The Blazers needed a late surge to get back in the game and still couldn't crack the 80-point barrier after shooting just 37 percent.

 

The Celtics head to Phoenix for the second game of a back-to-back Friday night where they expect...

Smith sparks No. 3 Duke in rout of BC

Nolan Smith, who leads the ACC in scoring and assists, poured in 28 points and dished out eight helpers to lead third-ranked Duke to an 84-68 victory over visiting Boston College on Thursday night.

 

Sophomore Seth Curry contributed a career-high 20 points for the league-leading Blue Devils (19-1 overall, 6-1 ACC). Kyle Singler and Ryan Kelly netted 14 apiece.

 

Corey Raji scored 18 points for BC (14-7, 4-3). Joe Trapani had 14 points and 11 rebounds. Eagles leading scorer Reggie Jackson did not start either half and finished with seven points and six assists.

 

BC was within a point at 28-27 with 3:30 left in the first half following a 3-pointer from Biko Paris (11 points). Duke then closed the period on a 13-5 run, capped by a long jumper from Kelly just before the buzzer to make it 41-32. Trapani scored two straight baskets to open the second half, but Duke then went on a  20-5 run. When Smith hit...

Rondo, Garnett not among All-Star starters

Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett were not among the Eastern Conference starters for the 2011 All-Star Game as voted by the fans. Chicago's Derrick Rose and New York's Amar'e Stoudemire passed them in the voting and joined Miami LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and Orlando's Dwight Howard, who was the East's leading vote getter.

 

The Western Conference starters are Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and Yao Ming. (Yao is injured and will be replaced by commissioner David Stern). The reserves will be announced Feb. 3.

Belichick on Welker: 'What we needed to do'

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick joined The Big Show on Thursday, his first appearance since the 28-21 divisional loss to the Jets. When Belichick was asked what went wrong in the loss, he pointed to the inability to covert on a pair of early drives.

 

"We pretty much went right down the field, I think we had more to do with us not having a 14-point lead then they did." said Belichick of the first two drives, which saw the Patriots score just three points. "We just didn't capitalize on those opportunities and I think that probably gave them some more confidence, the confidence to keep doing what they were doing. It got better for them, we missed a couple of good opportunities on offense and then missed a couple of good opportunities defensively as well … it's really more of a case of missed opportunities on our part."

 

The Wes Welker controversy was a major story before, during and after the...
