Doc: 'No idea what our record is'

Doc Rivers spoke at length before Friday’s game at with the Atlanta Hawks about how teams are preparing for defensive star Avery Bradley, how much the Celtics have been playing their “Manwich” zone defense and whether or not he’s paying attention to the Eastern conference standings.

Rivers said he also doesn’t spend much time looking at the Eastern conference standings. The Celtics came in Friday at 33-27 and in seventh place in the Eastern conference. But it’s quite the log-jam in the middle of the East. The Celtics were just a game behind the fifth-place Hawks and just 4 1/2 games behind the second-seeded Knicks. The Knicks, Pacers, Nets, Bulls, Hawks and Celtics are separated by just five games.

“I can’t even tell you what our exact record is,” said Rivers. “But I know it’s close with everybody else’s record. That’s how much I look at it...

Sox' Britton 'extremely remorseful' about arrest

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Red Sox left-hander Drake Britton, who was arrested over the weekend on charges of driving under the influence, expressed regret that the matter is one with which the team must now deal, but he declined further comment on the matter.

“I’m extremely remorseful,” Britton, who was optioned from big league camp to Double-A on Sunday, said of the arrest. “It’s an internal matter that’s going on right now. I’m sorry for the negativity that I brought, but that’s about all I can say right now. I’d really rather not say anything else.”

Britton allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out one in 3 1/3 Grapefruit League innings....

Bourque clears waivers, Caron recalled
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON  – The Bruins Bruins recalled forward Jordan Caron from Providence Friday morning, a day after the team waived Chris Bourque with the intention of assigning him to Providence. Bourque cleared waivers at noon on Friday, so he will be able to play for Boston’s AHL affiliate.

The callup is an intriguing one, as Caron was expected to compete for a job on the third line this season, but was injured prior to training camp. Caron, who showed some flashes with the B’s late last season, has had an underwhelming season in the AHL this year, with 10 goals and five assists for 15 points in 44 games.

The Bruins put Caron in a silver (third line) jersey in Friday’s practice. He shared duties with Jay Pondolfo as the left wing on the line with Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley.

Caron was the Bruins’ first round pick (25th...

Julien: B's 'certainly not perfect right now'

The Bruins got the bounce back win they were looking for in a 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs Thursday night at TD Garden. But by Claude Julien‘s own admission after the game, it was far from perfect.

The Bruins had to battle with a Toronto team that, despite playing on the road the night before, came into Boston and gave the Bruins a game before wilting under the persistent pressure of Boston’s top line of Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. Still the Bruins are 15-3-3 right now, good for 33 points and a spot near the top of the Eastern Conference with Montreal Canadiens.

“We’re certainly not perfect right now,” Julien said. “We’re certainly not firing on all cylinders. I think right now, we’re laboring through it. But, the work ethic was there tonight. The peaks and valleys of a season are pretty obvious that watching us...
