Report: Shaq to rejoin Celtics in Boston

According to the Boston Herald, while the Celtics had considered having center Shaquille O'Neal join the club during its current four-game Western Conference swing, a decision was instead made to have the 38-year-old rejoin the Celtics when they return to Boston on Tuesday. The Celtics have just one remaining game on the trip (Monday night in Utah against the Jazz), and so the decision was made not to rush O'Neal across the country for the sake of participating in just one game. Instead, he remains in Orlando, rehabbing his injured right Achilles tendon.

 

"He’s doing great. Just stay where you’re at, keep working out, and he’ll meet us when we get back to Boston. Then we...

Ortiz: 'Looking forward to killing it in April'

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Red Sox slugger David Ortiz said that he believes his slow April starts over the last three years were the result of putting too much pressure on himself. In particular, he suggested that in 2010 he pressed while "trying super hard to shut people up, and it didn't work."

 

In 2010, Ortiz hit just .143 with a .238 OBP, .286 slugging mark, .524 OPS and one homer and four RBIs in April. On May 1, however, he hit a pair of homers, starting a stretch when he hit .286/.385/.558/.943 with 31 homers and 98 RBIs over the last five months of the season.

 

The 35-year-old expects that if he is able to tune out the sort of criticism that weighed on him in the first month of 2010, he can position himself for a productive April that, in turn, could lead to big numbers over the course of a full season.

 

"I'm looking forward to killing it in April so people can forget about that...

New-look Celtics sail past Clippers

It took the Celtics a half to get their game together, but after sleepwalking through the first 24 minutes of their game with the Clippers, the C's stormed back for a 99-92 victory. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 24 points, while Ray Allen netted 22 and Kevin Garnett had 16 points and 10 rebounds. The Celtics trailed 47-40 at halftime but rallied in the third quarter, when they outscored the Clippers 34-17. They did most of their work at the free throw line, where they shot a season-high 41 attempts.

 

In their debuts for the Celtics, Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic both showed flashes of promise. Green shook off a tough first half to finish with seven points, while Krstic had nine points and six offensive rebounds in 21 minutes of action. Additionally, Delonte West had his best game since his return from a broken wrist with nine points and five assists.

 

The Celtics are 2-1 on their West Coast trip, which concludes Monday...

Bruins best the best, beat Canucks

The Bruins earned an impressive victory on the road, claiming a 3-1 victory in Vancouver over the Canucks. Vancouver had entered the contest leading the NHL in points (87) and armed with the best home ice mark (22-5-5) in the game.

 

But Milan Lucic broke a 1-1 tie at the 15:22 mark in the third period, banging home a rebound of a Dennis Seidenberg shot for his 27th goal of the year. Lucic also assisted on the other two Bruins' goals, a game-tying tally from Nathan Horton in the second period to knot the contest at 1-1 as well as an empty-netter from Patrice Bergeron with just over a minute left in regulation.

 

Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, meanwhile, stopped 27 of 28 shots from a Canucks team that entered the night leading the NHL in goals scored. After Vancouver took a 1-0 lead in the first period on Manny Malhotra's strike, Thomas shut down Vancouver and permitted his team a chance to come back.

Red Sox carry the day, trounce Huskies

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox finished off their first day of spring training games with a 13-2 win over Northeastern, Saturday night at City of Palms Park. The win came after the Sox claimed a 6-0 victory over Boston College earlier in the afternoon.

 

Of particular note in the Sox' win over the Huskies were the returns of Jacoby Ellsbury and Mike Cameron, who both sat out a substantial amount of time in 2010 with injuries. Ellsbury, who battled broken ribs in '10, grounded out and walked in his only two plate appearances, eventually being replaced in center field by Che-Hsuan Lin. Cameron (sports hernia) made his return as a designated hitter, going 0-for-2. Cameron is scheduled to play in the outfield for the Red Sox in their Grapefruit League opener against the Twins Sunday night.

 

Shortstop Jose Iglesias turned in a solid game for the Sox, going 2-for-3 with three RBI. Northeastern's Ryan Maguire of Arlington led off...
