Dooling: Rondo 'smartest player in our game'

Following Rondo's eighth career playoff triple-double, Keyon Dooling dubbed the Celtics point guard "the smartest player in our game."

"I think sometimes his basketball intellect is overshadowed by some of his moments," said Dooling after the C's 92-91 victory against the 76ers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals. "He's the smartest player in our game."

Rondo finished with 13 points, 17 assists and 12 rebounds -- including 11 points, nine dimes and eight boards in the second half -- but perhaps his most cerebral play of the night came in the final 3.4 seconds of the game. With the C's leading by one and the Sixers looking to foul, Rondo and his 54.5 percent playoff free throw percentage rushed to the backcourt, knowing Philadelphia had a foul to give, avoiding a defender and dribbling out the clock for the victory.

"If you look, he's a coach on the floor," added Dooling....

Rondo (triple-double), KG lead C's in Game 1

Rajon Rondo had his eighth career playoff triple-double - and second of these playoffs - while Kevin Garnett picked up where he left off in Round 1 with 29 points and 11 rebounds in 38 minutes as the Celtics overcame the Sixers, 92-91, in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series Saturday night at TD Garden. Rondo had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 17 assists to lead the Celtics. The Sixers made a late charge in the closing seconds after Boston had a six-point lead. But Rondo received the inbounds pass and ran out the final 3.4 seconds. 

Despite both teams clinching their first round series on Thursday, the Sixers were the more energetic team early, jumping out to a 15-6 lead. Andre Iguodala hit a pair of 3-pointers in the first quarter. He had 10 points for Philadelphia in the opening quarter whilie the Sixers shot 55 percent as a team. The Celtics, meanwhile, were ice cold, making just six of their 20 shots as the Sixers claimed a 28-18 lead...

Doubront leads Sox to second straight win

The Red Sox now have their first home win streak since their initial series at Fenway Park this season, topping the Indians, 4-1, Saturday.

Leading the way for the Red Sox was starter Felix Doubront, who only allowed one run over six innings, giving up three hits while striking out five. It marked just the third time this season Sox starters have turned in back-to-back outings in which they surrendered three runs over less while pitching six innings or more.

The Sox offense got two hits apiece from Dustin Pedroia and Daniel Nava, while David Ortiz notched an RBI double and Cody Ross blasted his sixth homer of the season over the left field wall for the hosts' final run. It was Ross' first home run since April 23.

The Red Sox got another round of solid relief pitching, as well, with Andrew Miller, Vicente Padilla and Alfredo Aceves turning in one shutout inning apiece to close things out. It was the first time in Miller's career he had...

Matsuzaka gives up five runs for PawSox

Making his second rehab appearance with Triple-A Pawtucket, Daisuke Matsuzaka ran into a bit of trouble against Columbus, Saturday at McCoy Stadium. The starter, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, allowed five runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings, throwing 90 pitches (54 strikes). He struck out five and walked one.

Matsuzaka carried a 3-1 lead into the fifth inning before succumbing to a two-run homer by Ben Copeland. The starter's final pitch was an 88 mph fastball Russ Canzler hit for another two-run shot, capping Matsuzaka's line.

According McCoy Stadium radar gun readings, the pitcher's fastball topped out at 93 mph.

It was Matsuzaka's fourth overall rehab outing having also pitched one game apiece at Single-A Salem and Double-A Portland. The final day he can make a rehab appearance is May 22.
