Celtics rip Sixers in exhibition opener

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Ray Allen scored 14 points and Semih Erden added 13 points as the Celtics beat the Sixers, 93-65 in their first exhibition game of the season. The starters played about 20 minutes apiece, while Doc Rivers played the first five off his bench for another 20. Philly was playing the second game of a back-to-back and was without several starters including Andre Iguodala and Elton Brand.

 

Erden was the big story of the night as he not only scored in the post, he also played strong defense and looked more like a 10-year veteran than a rookie. The C's play the Nets Thursday night.

Halladay authors 2nd ever MLB playoff no-no

PHILADELPHIA -- Appropriately, in the year of the no-hitter, Roy Halladay joined Don Larsen as the only pitchers to throw a no-hitter in postseason history as he shutdown the Cincinnati Reds, 4-0, in Game 1 of their National League Division Series here at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia. 

 

The only blemish on the night for Halladay was a walk to Jay Bruce with two outs in the fifth. Otherwise, he would've matched Don Larsen's perfect game nearly 54 years ago to the day when the Yankee righty beat the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1956 World Series. Halladay also came up with the game's biggest hit, a two-out, RBI single in the second to make the score, 2-0. 

 

Halladay threw a perfect game earlier this season when he retired all 27 Florida Marlins in South Florida on May 29.

Shaq to start C's preseason opener

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- When the Celtics take the floor for the preseason opener against Philadelphia Wednesday night, Shaquille O'Neal will be the team's starting center. Jermaine O'Neal entered camp as the starter, but he has been hampered by an injury to his left hamstring.

 

Doc Rivers said before the game that Jermaine O'Neal would also miss Thursday's game at New Jersey. That leaves Shaq as the center, with the rest of the five unchanged. With Jermaine O'Neal out, expect to see a lot of Semih Erden as well. Rivers wants to give him major minutes this preseason to get him ready in case injuries hits.

Chung loses out on special teams honor

Blocking a punt and field goal in the second half of Monday night's win over the Dolphins wasn't enough to earn AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors for Patriots safety Patrick Chung.

 

Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee instead claimed the award. Scobee kicked a 59-yard field goal on the final play of the game to give Jacksonville a 31-28 victory over the Colts.

ESPN's Carter has harsh words for Patriots

Cris Carter was a teammate of Randy Moss in Minnesota for four seasons, and the two reportedly developed a tight bond. On a conference call Wednesday afternoon, Carter — now an ESPN analyst — was critical of the Patriots for dealing Moss to Minnesota, saying quarterback Tom Brady and the New England passing game will suffer as a result.

Carter was asked if he thought the Patriots are a championship-type offense without Moss, he said, “Absolutely not.”

“There’s no way you take Randy Moss away from any quarterback in this league, and that quarterback gets better. It’s not possible,” Carter said. “This is a game about talented players. But you can only do so much if you don’t have the weapons. Tom will still be a great quarterback until he retires. He is that good. But he will have to work extra hard. Wes Welker’s job became a little bit harder.”
