Five straight: Celtics silence Thunder

The Celtics have now won five straight games and six of their first seven, after beating Oklahoma City, 92-83 to start their road trip. Ray Allen scored 19 points, Paul Pierce added 17 and Rajon Rondo had 10 points and 10 rebounds, but the stars of the night where the reserves who outdcored their OKC counterparts, 33-12 and held off a fourth quarter rally.

 

The C's had a 58-37 at the half, but the Thunder made their inevitable run late in the third quarter and into the early stages of the fourth, cutting the Celtics lead to six. The bench that saved the day as Glen Davis knocked down a couple of shots and pushed the lead back to double digits. This may have been the Celtics best, most complete, win of the season.

Source: Hale to interview with Mets

According to a major league source, Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale will interview with the New York Mets for their vacant managerial position sometime early this week. The 49-year-old Hale was recently one of the four finalists for the Toronto Blue Jays managerial opening, which ultimately went to former Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell. Hale, who has been with the Red Sox since 2006, has not held a major league managing job, having last managed with the Rangers' Triple-A team in Oklahoma in 2001. Hale was named the minor league manager of the year in 1999 after leading the Trenton Thunder to a record of 92-50. CSNNE was first to report the news of Hale's scheduled interview with the Mets.

Brady: 'We were out of sync all day'

 

A visibly-frustrated Tom Brady was harassed all afternoon and held to 19-of-36 passing for 224 yards and two touchdown passes to Aaron Hernandez in a 34-14 loss to the Browns in Cleveland. 

 

"We were out of sync all day," Brady said. "That's a good way to put it. We just didn't have a good day at the office." 

 

Brady was 1-for-6 in the first quarter for 10 yards while the Patriots opened 0-for-3 on third-down conversions as they fell behind 10-0. The Patriots finished just 3-for-11 on third down on the afternoon. 

 

"We just didn't do much to advance the ball," Brady said. "There were a lot of big plays in this game and ones we didn't convert."

 

Hernandez's first score came when he made a leaping grab in the back of the end zone to cut the lead to 10-7. But the Browns, behind Hillis, scored 17 straight points and...

Report: Pats would have had interest in Moss

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Patriots would have been interested in re-signing wide receiver Randy Moss if he cleared through waivers and was not claimed by the Tennessee Titans. Schefter writes that the reason the Patriots didn't put in a waiver claim for Moss was that since they had the NFL's final waiver claim, they could simply let Moss pass through and re-sign him as a free agent, thereby not being obligated to play the balance of the $3.38 million the wideout was still owed.

Belichick: Browns 'clearly the better team'

Bill Belichick met with the media following the Patriots 34-14 defeat to the Browns in Cleveland, a loss that dropped the Patriots to 6-2 on the season. 

 

"They [Browns] did everything better than we did, in every single thing you can measure," said Belichick. "They were clearly the better team. They deserved to win, it was an outstanding performance. We didn't do the things we needed to do to win, or really be competitive, so that was the result of the game. Obviously we have got a lot of work to do."

 

Belichick was asked if this result was in part due to a lack of preparation.

 

"We didn't do a good job on anything, pick any subject you want," said Belichick. "It wasn't very good ... They did everything better than we did. I'm sure it was a lot of things, a lot of factors involved. They did a good job, played well across the board."
