Allen: 'I'm sure I'll be sore' after late fall

LOS ANGELES -- The Celtics got a scare late in their 94-85 win over the Clippers Monday night when Ray Allen slipped and turned his ankle. He crawled over the bench area and had to leave the game with the Celtics holding only a three-point lead and less than a minute remaining.

"I think I hot a wet spot or something, but I slid and when I slid my ankle turned over," Allen said. "I had the wherewithal to fall and take the pressure off it. I still felt it and it was a sharp pain. When I got back here I started putting pressure on it and it eased up. I’m feeling a little bit better. I’m sure I’ll be sore."

Allen was able to return for the final few possessions, which was a relief for coach Doc Rivers.

"I didn’t see what happened and you turn around and you see a guy down and I didn’t see anyone around him," Rivers said. "The first thing you think is something on his body gave out...

Doc: 'We had to make this game no fun'

LOS ANGELES -- The Celtics knew that if they let the Clippers run wild on them they wouldn't have the personnel to keep up. So, they made sure to change the tempo.

"This is Lob City, and they enjoy the game," Doc Rivers said after his team won, 94-85. "You can see them when they play, it’s a lot of fun. We had to make this game no fun. This game can’t be a joyous occasion. It has to be a competition. [We] went out there and they turned it into a competition."

There were five technicals called including two sets of double-technicals on Kevin Garnett and DeAndre Jordan and Greg Stiemsma and Blake Griffin. (Rivers had the other one.)

"That was the mean Stiemsma today. It was great to see that," Rivers said. "He got the blocked shot. We’re going to have to work on his trash talk a little bit. But it was good to see. We needed that. Listen, we’re small. That’s just who we are right...

Tough won: C's survive, outlast Clippers

Paul Pierce scored a game-high 25 points and Kevin Garnett added 21 and drilled a key jumper with 38.4 seconds remaining as the Celtics held on for a 94-85 win over the Clippers Monday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Rajon Rondo had 12 points and 10 assists for the Celtics, who improved to 1-1 on their season-long eight-game road trip and improved to 22-19 on the season. 

The Clippers were led by superstar Blake Griffin, who had 24 points, and Mo Williams off the bench, with 21. Chris Paul was held to just 12 points on 3-of-12 shooting. 

After scoring just 14 points in the second quarter and falling behind 48-39 at halftime, the Celtics came out strong in the third, using a 19-4 run to open the quarter and take a 57-52 lead. 

Like they did in Boston last year when he was with the Hornets, the Celtics found a way to shut down Paul, holding him without a field goal until final 35 seconds of the third quarter. The Celtics...

Reports: 49ers ink Moss to deal
By: DJ Bean

According to multiple reports, the 49ers and free agent wide receiver Randy Moss agreed to a one-year deal Monday evening. The pact ends Moss' retirement after he spent the 2011 season out of football. 

The 35-year-old Moss reportedly spent Monday working out with the 49ers and catching passes from coach Jim Harbaugh. Moss had recently worked out with the Saints. 

Moss spent parts of four seasons with the Patriots, including a record-setting 2007 campaign in which he reeled in 23 touchdown receptions. He was traded to the Vikings after four games in the 2010 season, but only lasted four games before he was waived. He finished the season with the Titans after being claimed, but had only six receptions in eight games, the last ones he played before retiring. 

The Patriots will host the 49ers this season, meaning Moss will make his first trip back to New England since Oct. 31, 2010, his last game with the Vikings.

Beckett throws 4 IP in Sox win

Josh Beckett struggled with his command early in his third start of the spring but settled down, allowing just a run on a single hit in four innings for the Sox against the Marlins at JetBlue Park on Monday afternoon.

Beckett hit two batters and walked in a run in the first inning but was sharp in his final three frames, retiring the final nine batters in order. Beckett threw 57 pitches and finished with three strikeouts against two walks.

Andrew Bailey made his spring training debut, allowing a run on three hits in his inning on the hill. 

Mike Aviles doubled and tripled in his three plate appearances and Nick Punto, Kelly Shoppach and Cody Ross all drove in runs for the Sox. 

Pedro Ciriaco blasted a two-run, walk-off homer off of Alejandro Ramos in the 10th inning to give the Sox a 5-3 victory. The Sox improved to 5-2 in spring training play with the win.

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen was ejected in the top of the...
