Celtics let it slip away against Cavs

One night after playing the most hyped opener in NBA history, the Celtics got caught on the back end of a back-to-back on the road in a 95-87 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs trailed by five entering the fourth quarter but rallied to take an 89-84 lead with 1:33 remaining. The Celtics had a chance to tie the game, but Ray Allen missed a 3-pointer. Allen went 0-for-5 from 3-point range.

 

The Celtics turned it over 19 times and the bench outside of Glen Davis and Marquis Daniels shot 2-for-8. The Cavs big run came with the starters off the floor, but that's the tradeoff for playing Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett major minutes the night before. It was also a rough night for Jermaine O'Neal who fouled out after playing just 12 minutes and registering three turnovers.

 

There were a handful of bright spots for the Celtics, however. Garnett had 15 rebounds in just 30 minutes of action and Rajon Rondo had 18 points...

Childress: Moss has delivered intel on Pats

The possible impact of Randy Moss on the Vikings has been discussed plenty in recent days, but no matter what he does on the field Sunday, he’s already had a chance to help the Vikings offense and defense prepare for their game with the Patriots. According to coach Brad Childress, Moss spent his off-day huddling with both offensive and defensive in hopes of getting them up to speed on New England.

“He’s very articulate,” Childress said of Moss. “He spent time with our coaches [Tuesday] and did a great job with both our offense and defensive coaches.”

Childress said he did “a good job” when it comes to providing background on the Patriots.

“You never know what you’re going to get and how they have to play him,” Childress said. “He at least had some insightfulness on both sides.”

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady understands that the...

Celtics lineup: Pierce will play

Paul Pierce will be in the starting lineup in Cleveland when the Celtics play the Cavs tonight. Pierce fell hard on his back in the third quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Heat and had to go back to the locker room for treatment. Pierce said after the game that his back was sore and that it would probably hurt for a few days.

 

Mo Williams is out for the Cavaliers. Williams is dealing with an injured groin and he has also been away from the team for a week after the death of his father-in-law. Ramon Sessions will start in his place. Here are the rest of the lineups:

 

Celtics: Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal

 

Cavs: Sessions, Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon, J.J. Hickson, Anderson Varejao

Fenway right field fence move not certainty

The proposed plan to move in the right field fence at Fenway Park still has to clear some hurdles before being enacted. While the plan -- which would expand the bullpens from their current width of 21 feet to at least 27 feet -- was approved by the Boston Landmarks Commission, it still has to be given the green light by the Massachusetts Historical Commission, the National Parks Service, and Major League Baseball before being put in motion. The increased width of the bullpens was recommended by Major League Baseball, which offers the guideline of 27 feet for all MLB stadiums.
