Brown: Patriots were 'a front-running team'

Appearing on WEEI's NFL Sunday show with Dale Arnold, Chris Price and Christian Fauria, former Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown surmised that this year's Pats team was unlike the ones he played on in the sense that it didn't exhibit the same kind of resolve/makeup when falling behind. An example he pointed out was how the team approached falling behind in its season-ending loss to the Jets.

 

"This year's football team, I can put in that category, that this was a front-running team," Brown said. "That's something we always talked about in New England about other teams about them being front-runners, if you can get them behind they would be a different football team. They fit that category this year very well. Once they got behind they had no idea what to do, made no adjustments, couldn't make any plays, couldn't pass the football, forgot about BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Everything went out the window. They had no idea what to do...

Clank: Celts go ice cold in loss to Wizards

Wizards rookie John Wall banked in a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired with less than a minute left to break an 81-81 tie and help propel his team to a surprising 85-83 victory over the Celtics. Wall finished with 16 points — pouring in eight in the fourth quarter — while Rashard Lewis, long a source of frustration for the Celtics as a member of the Magic, continued to create headaches for Boston, scoring a game-high 18 and pulling in 11 boards.

 

Kevin Garnett led the Celtics with 17 points, but his team shot just 43 percent from the field, resulting in the end of Boston's five-game winning streak. The Celtics burst out of the gates, claiming a 35-20 lead after one quarter, before turning ice cold over the remainder of the game. Boston scored just 27 points in the second half, allowing the Wizards to slowly turn the tide of the game. The Wizards are 0-20 on the road this season but have a solid 13-9 record at home after beating...

Kitchen, Florida State frustrate BC

Derwin Kitchen amassed 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists and Florida State's aggressive defense frustrated Boston College as the Eagles fell, 67-51, in an ACC game Saturday night in Tallahassee, Fla.

 

Joe Trapani had 19 points and 12 rebounds for BC (14-6, 4-2 ACC), which played without starting point guard Biko Paris (stomach flu). Reggie Jackson scored 13 despite having a miserable night shooting the ball (4-of-13). Jackson also had seven assists.

 

Michael Snaer had 13 points for Florida State (15-5, 5-1), which is off to its best start since 1992-93.

 

BC trailed by two at the break (29-27) and was within a point at 38-37 with 14:27 left after a 3-pointer by Corey Raji. The Seminoles, who lead the nation in defensive field goal percentage (opponents hit just 37 percent), then clamped down and went on a 12-1 run, with Kitchen scoring five of the points. The lead peaked at 17 when Kitchen hit a...

Semih steps in: Erden starts with Shaq out

With Shaquille O'Neal unable to play due to a hip injury he incurred on Friday, the Celtics will feature Semih Erden as their starting center on Saturday night against the Wizards. After the Celtics' victory over the Jazz on Friday, coach Doc Rivers said that O'Neal would not be taking the trip to Washington. With Jermaine O'Neal also sidelined and Kendrick Perkins working his way back from his ACL repair, Rivers said that the Celtics were prepared to turn to Erden for the "next couple of games."

 

In 30 minutes on Friday, the Turkish rookie scored a season-high 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds. The seven-footer is averaging 4.3 points and 2.7 boards in 14.5 minutes per night this year. Shaquille O'Neal is averaging 9.9 points and 4.9 boards in 21.3 minutes per night while shooting a career-high 67.7...

Savard (head) won't travel with B's to LA
By: DJ Bean

 Bruins center Marc Savard will return to Boston for tests after a hit from Avalanche defenseman Matt Hunwick caused him to leave Saturday's game with a head injury. The team is traveling to Los Angeles on Saturday in anticipation of Monday's game against the Kings.

 

"He's going to be headed back home," Claude Julien told NESN's Naoko Funayama following the team's 6-2 win. "He got shook up obviously, and for precautionary reasons, were going to send him back home to get evaluated by our own doctors." 

 

Savard fell to the ice following the hit, as his head appeared to hit to the boards. Savard missed the first 23 games of the season with post-concussion syndrome.
