Napoli to visit with Red Sox this weekend

According to CBSSports.com, free agent Mike Napoli is scheduled to visit the Red Sox in Boston this weekend. Napoli has already met with Seattle, and is slated to get together with the Rangers in coming week.

The Red Sox have had continued interest in the 31-year-old, even after signing catcher David Ross, eyeing Napoli to play first base while also filling in at catcher and designated hitter. He is coming off a 2012 season in which he hit .227 with a .812 OPS in 108 games while battling leg injuries. Napoli did finish the '12 season strong, totaling a 1.051 OPS with seven home runs in September.

Napoli has an extraordinary amount of success at Fenway Park, where he has the highest OPS (1.256) since 2008 of any player with at least 58 plate appearances.

Doc Rivers: 'That's who we have to be'

Doc Rivers watched his team register its most significant win of the season Friday night, overcoming an early nine-point deficit and withstanding a late charge to beat the defending Western Conference champion Thunder, 108-100, at TD Garden.

“The biggest difference is this time they scores 100 and we scored 108," Rivers said, referencing the 112-100 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday at the Garden. "It’s the same game really. I told the guys at halftime and even after the game, that was the Celtics. That’s the team that we’ve been looking for, but can we continue to do it. We’ve got to do it over and over again. I thought there were some mistakes made, we kept playing. There were some runs, we kept playing. They made a run, we kept playing. No hanging heads, yelling at each other. We played through all clutter, it was like a clutter free game, for us. That’s who we have to be."

Thunderous: Green, Pierce impressive in win

Facing the team that traded him away to the Celtics for Kendrick Perkins, Jeff Green scored 17 points and led a revitalized bench as the Celtics held on to beat the Thunder, 108-100, Friday night at TD Garden. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 27 and led an impressive display of 3-point shooting, as he and Jason Terry each drained 4-of-5 from long range, helping Boston finish 9-of-17 from beyond the arc. 

Rajon Rondo finished with 16 assists, extending his streak of double-digit assists to 36 games, one shy of John Stockton for second-best in NBA history. Magic Johnson is now within reach at 46 games. Rondo can match Stockton Sunday evening in Orlando and could match Johnson on Dec. 15 in San Antonio. 

The Celtics moved back over .500 at 7-6 with the win and handed Kevin Durant and the Thunder just their fourth loss in 13 games. Durant (29 points) and Westbrook (26) paced the Thunder.

The Thunder displayed their athleticism early on...
