Paul: Not big difference with Rondo, Nate

Speaking after his team's 83-81 win over the Celtics, Friday at TD Garden, New Orleans point guard explained that he didn't know prior to the game if Rajon Rondo would be in the starting lineup for the Celts, and that it wouldn't have changed his mind-set.


"It didn't matter to me," said Paul, who finished with 20 points and 11 assists. "I'm one of those guys who think with the Celtics ... there's Rondo or Nate Robinson, there ain't that much of a difference. Nate Robinson is a starter in our league coming off their bench. Their first nine guys are starters."


Robinson played 37 minutes for the Celtics, scoring 11 points on 5-for-10 shooting from the floor. He dished out three assists.


"I guess I'm in one of those situations where every night I go out I know I'm going to get the other guy's best shot," said Paul, who now heads to Washington to take on the Wizards. "I...

New Year's Eve party crashers: C's fall

The Hornets overcame an seven-point, fourth-quarter deficit and a 18-0 run by the Celtics to grind out a 83-81 win in a New Year's Eve matinee at TD Garden. Ray Allen missed an off-balance three-pointer with five seconds remaining that would have given the Celtics the win. Trevor Ariza hit a go-ahead three-pointer with 1:34 left to put the Hornets up for good, 80-77. It was the first full game the Celtics played this season without Kevin Garnett, out for two weeks with a strained right calf. 


Allen electrified the sellout crowd with consecutive three-pointers in an 18-0 fourth quarter run that put the Celtics up 73-66 with under nine minutes remaining. But Chris Paul, with 20 points led the Hornets back. 


With Garnett out and Rajon Rondo still unable to play, the Celtics relied on Paul Pierce and Shaquille O'Neal to pick up the slack early. The Hornets - behind Paul and Emeka Okafor - took advantage...

Source: Okajima close to re-joining Sox

According to a baseball source, the Red Sox are close to bringing back Hideki Okajima on a one-year deal. The 35-year-old Okajima, who has been with the Red Sox since 2007, was non-tendered by the team in Nov. He went 4-4 with a 4.50 ERA in 56 games last season. The agreement would be for a major-league deal, meaning the Sox would have to make a corresponding roster move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the lefty. The Boston Globe was first to report the development. For more Red Sox coverage, see the team page at
