Dirty dozen: C's grind out gutsy win

Kevin Garnett inspired the weary and wounded Celtics with 17 points and 14 rebounds in a 102-90 win over the Atlanta Hawks at TD Garden on Thursday night. The victory extended Boston's winning streak to 12, matching their longest since they set the franchise record of 19 back in the 2008-09 season. Glen Davis had 18 points off a shorthanded Celtics bench. 

 

Playing on fumes for most of the first half after an emotional win in New York 24 hours earlier, the Celtics came alive late in the second quarter, going on a 10-2 run to take a 44-43 lead at halftime. They opened the second half with a 20-12 run to assume control of the game. 

 

The Celtics found out just before the game they would be without Rajon Rondo for couple of weeks as GM Danny Ainge told WEEI that his sprained left ankle needed time to heal. Nate Robinson started and provided an emotional boost with 14 points and five assists in 41 minutes. Shaquille...

Canadiens beat Bruins, extend division lead
By: DJ Bean

 

 It was a game that featured plenty of back and forth, but the Bruins didn't join in until they had fallen behind early on and the Canadiens took a 4-3 victory Thursday night at the Bell Centre. The Canadiens, who are first in the Northeast Division, now lead the Bruins by four points. 

 

The Bruins started slow, allowing a penalty shot goal to Mike Cammalleri at 1:04 when Zdeno Chara hooked the winger on a breakaway that was the result of a Milan Lucic turnover, while Maxim Lapierre added his fifth of the season at 6:24. 

 

The Bruins were able to come within a goal of the Habs in each period thanks to goals from Blake Wheeler, Marc Savard, and Milan Lucic, respectively, but goals in the first and second from Mac Pacioretty and Brian Gionta extended Montreal's lead throughout the night. 

 

With the loss, Tim Thomas fell to 14-3-3 on the season.

Rondo and Shaq out for Celtics

The Celtics will not only be without Rajon Rondo Thursday against the Hawks, they will also be missing the services of Shaquille O'Neal for the fourth straight game, leaving the Celtics with just 10 players in uniform. Celtics president Danny Ainge told The Big Show Thursday afternoon that Rondo will be out for a couple of weeks.

Before the game, Doc Rivers didn't elaborate on a time frame, although he did say that this was related only to Rondo's sprained left ankle, which he hurt in the fourth quarter against the Knicks, and not to do Rondo's other foot and leg problems -- plantar fasciitis and a sore hamstring.

As for O'Neal, Rivers hopes he can have him back in time for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

Six get minor-league deals from Sox

In addition to their decision to re-sign lefty Andrew Miller to a minor-league deal, the Red Sox announced the signings Thursday of five other free agents to 2011 minor league contracts, a group that includes former Sox reliever Lenny DiNardo — a deal that was reported by WEEI.com on Wednesday.

In addition to Miller and DiNardo, Boston inked southpaws Rich Hill and Randy Williams, as well as right-handed pitchers Clevelan Santeliz and Ryan Harvey. Hill, Miller, Williams and Santeliz have also been invited to Boston’s Major League Spring Training camp as non-roster players.  All of the free agents have been placed on the Triple-A Pawtucket roster.

Sox sign two relievers, trade Patterson

The Red Sox took two steps toward shoring up their bullpen Thursday, while also completing the trade for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.

 

According to a major league source, the Sox have re-signed lefty Andrew Miller, whom they originally acquired from the Marlins in exchange for Dustin Richardson. Miller was non-tendered by the Red Sox in Nov., allowing the 25-year-old to become a free agent. Miller, who will be working under a minor-league deal with an invitation to big league camp, is expected to compete for a spot in the Red Sox' bullpen.
