Pierce: 'It's hard to be confident'

Celtics captain Paul Pierce connected on his first four 3-pointers but missed his next four as the Celtics went cold in the second and third quarters and lost to Memphis, 93-83, Wednesday night at TD Garden. It was Boston's fourth straight loss and dropped them a season-low three games under .500 at 14-17.

“It’s hard to be confident when you are struggling, lose four in a row and you find the type of mettle you have," Pierce said. "The good thing about it is where staying positive about this stretch. It’s a tough stretch for us obviously, and we know we are going to get through it.

“We sit in here and we talk about being positive, don’t get our heads down. We understand we feel you can always get the next one. It’s just like any confident person, when things don’t go your way you feel the next thing is going to go your way, and that’s how this team feels.”

Pierce finished with...

Lowball: C's fall 3 games under .500

Mike Conley scored 23 points while former Celtic Tony Allen hit his first six shots and finished with 15 points as the Grizzlies handed the Celtics their fourth straight loss, 93-83, Wednesday night at TD Garden. The Celtics fell to a season-worst three games under .500 at 14-17. While Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 17, Kevin Garnett struggled badly for the first three quarters, making just three of his first 12 shots, and finishing with 12 points. Jeff Green had 10 points off the bench for the Celtics, who were outrebounded, 39-27. Former UConn star Rudy Gay finished with 19 for the Grizzlies, who improve to 20-9. 

Avery Bradley started in his first game of the season after surgery on both shoulders. Bradley, considered the best on-ball defender on the Celtics, played 20 minutes, scoring just four points in a return that was thought to provide a defensive spark. 

The Celtics showed some toughness in the first quarter, falling behind 11...

Sox scouting Javier Vazquez on Friday

According to an industry source, the Red Sox are slated to scout right-hander Javier Vazquez when he pitches for Caguas of the Puerto Rican Winter League on Friday. Vazquez is pitching against Santurce in the third game of the playoffs for Caguas as part of the 12-game round-robin postseason tournament on the island. News of the Sox' scouting undertaking was first reported by Victor Ramos in Puerto Rico (via twitter). The veteran has been showing fastball velocity of 92-93 mph in recent workouts. 

Vazquez, 36, last pitched in the big leagues in 2011, when he went 13-11 with a 3.69 ERA in 192 2/3 innings for the Marlins. He struck out 7.6 batters per nine innings while issuing just 2.3 walks per nine. The 14-year veteran has a career 165-160 record and 4.22 ERA, enjoying considerable success with six teams. However, in his only two years in the AL East (pitching for...

Melo suffers concussion running into a door

A strange and frustrating start to the season got a little more bizarre on Wednesday when Celtics rookie Fab Melo was brought to Boston to get examined for a concussion he says was the result of running into a hotel door while playing for the D-League Maine Red Claws. 

"What was it here, Manny being Manny? Well, in five years, when he's doing great things for us, we'll have Fab being Fab. He just got a head start, literally," joked head coach Doc Rivers before Wednesday's game with the Memphis Grizzlies. 

Melo, who has recorded a triple-double and set a D-League record recently with 14 blocks in a game, had to be recalled Wednesday to receive medical treatment from the Celtics staff. 

Melo has had two games in his D-League stint that have raised a lot of eyebrows in Boston. On Dec. 22, he scored 15 points, grabbed 16 rebounds, and blocked 14 shots in a triple-double against the Erie Bayhawks. He followed that by...

NHLPA makes another offer, talks to continue
By: DJ Bean

NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr told reporters Wednesday that the players' association has made a counteroffer to the league's latest proposal on Wednesday. The two sides are expected to meet again on Wednesday night.

The NHLPA has until the end of the day to file a disclaimer of interest, a step that would allow the union to no longer represent the players. In that case, players would be able to file individual lawsuits against the owners.
