No letdown: Celtics roll past Hawks

The Celtics wasted no time putting the events of the last few days behind them as they jumped on the Hawks early and often in a 99-76 blowout win in Atlanta. Nate Robinson, Shaquille O'Neal and Kevin Garnett all had double-doubles and all 12 Celtic players scored, including rookie Avery Bradley who made his NBA debut.

 

Robinson filled in for Rajon Rondo, who missed his second straight game with a strained left hamstring, and scored 16 points to go with 10 assists. Garnett added 17 points and 11 rebounds and held Josh Smith without a field goal over 22 minutes.

 

The Celtics led 39-13 after one quarter and held the Hawks to 14 points in the third quarter, as well. The win snaps a two-game losing skid and also was the first for the Celtics against Atlanta since April 3, 2009. The Hawks won all four meetings last season.

Raji, Rubin lead BC past Holy Cross

Senior forward Corey Raji had 15 points and seven rebounds to lead a balanced Boston College attack Monday night as the Eagles defeated Holy Cross, 69-54, before an announced crowd of 3,672 at Conte Forum.

 

Freshman Danny Rubin hit four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points as the Eagles rebounded from a loss to Yale and improved to 2-1. Joe Trapani, who missed all seven of his first-half shots, bounced back in the second period and finished with 11 points, as did Biko Paris. Reggie Jackson contributed nine points and 10 assists.

 

BC had been woeful from 3-point range in its first two games, hitting just 7-for-40. On Monday, the Eagles were substantially better, hitting 10-of-27.

 

R.J. Evans scored 12 points for Holy Cross, which fell to 0-4 under first-year coach Milan Brown.

Rondo out again for Celtics

The Celtics are going to be cautious with Rajon Rondo's strained left hamstring and that means that he will sit out Monday night's game in Atlanta. It's the second straight game that Rondo has sat since injuring his hamstring against Oklahoma City Friday night and Doc Rivers told reporters in Atlanta that Rondo could miss Wednesday's game against New Jersey, as well.

 

Nate Robinson started in Rondo's place Sunday and scored 22 points against the Raptors. There's a chance that rookie Avery Bradley could make his NBA debut while Rondo is on the inactive list.

David Ortiz: 'I will play hard' in 2011

Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz, at a press conference in the Dominican Republic, said that the team's decision to bring him back on a one-year option rather than a multi-year deal will not affect how he approaches the 2011 season.

 

"Boston made its decision, and I am going to play hard," he said in remarks relayed by the Associated Press. "I wanted a new contract, but I know that this is a business. Sometimes good decisions are made and other times not."

 

 

Earlier this month, the Sox exercised a $12.5 million option on Ortiz for the 2011 season. Red Sox chairman Tom Werner subsequently told WEEI that he was...
