Easing the pain: C's win, Rondo hurt

Rajon Rondo had a game-high 21 points before injuring his right wrist late in the third quarter while Kevin Garnett added 15 points and seven rebounds as the Celtics snapped their longest losing streak in five seasons with a 96-73 win over the Raptors Wednesday night at TD Garden. Brandon Bass added 13 and Mickael Pietrus had 12 off the bench for the Celtics, who snapped a five-game skid.  

The five-game losing streak was Boston's longest since losing seven straight at the end of the 2006-07 season, the year before Ray Allen and Garnett joined the Celtics. 

The Celtics appeared ready to cruise to an easy win, opening a 29-14 lead after one, with Rondo scoring 13 of Boston's 29 first-quarter points. But the Celtics went ice cold in the second quarter and allowed Toronto back in the game, as the Raptors outscored Boston, 24-15, to cut the Celtics' lead to 44-38 at the break. The Celtics again pulled away in the third quarter, opening...

Rondo injures right wrist, leaves game

With just over two minutes remaining in the third quarter of Wednesday night's game against the Raptors, Rajon Rondo drove to the basket and was fouled hard by Linas Kleiza of the Raptors, landing hard on his right wrist. 

Rondo remained on the floor under the basket for several minutes while team doctor Brian McKeon and trainer Ed Lacerte examined his right hand and wrist very closely. 

Rondo remained in the game to take his two free throws, missing the first and making the second. The Celtics valuable point guard was escorted off the court and into the Celtics locker room for further examination. The team announced early in the fourth quarter that Rondo was suffering from a sore right wrist but "could" return if needed. 

E'Twaun Moore took his place in the lineup. For more, visit the Celtics team page at weei.com/celtics and the ...

Brady (left shoulder) DNP, 14 limited

FOXBORO -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's absence Wednesday was explained on the team's official injury report as a left shoulder injury, the same injury that has limited him in practice since getting hit on the left shoulder during the win over the Dolphins on Christmas Eve.

All other Ravens were in full participation. Here is Wednesday's complete report:

Flacco on Reed: 'Not a big deal'

OWINGS MILLS, MD -- Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco spoke to the media on Wednesday and was asked for his reaction to comments made by teammate Ed Reed to SiriusXM NFL Radio. Reed said he felt Flacco was 'rattled' by the defense of the Houston Texans in last Sunday's 20-13 Baltimore win.

"I talked to Ed about it, it was a little funny, I was kind of caught off guard, but it is what it is. We talked about it and it's not really that big a deal," said Flacco, who was sacked five times by the Texans in a game that saw the Ravens collect just 227 yards of offense.

Flacco -- who seemed defensive at times during his seven-minute session with the media -- was asked if he feels a Super Bowl victory would silence his critics.

"I don't care, I'll have a ring and we'll be holding a trophy," Flacco said. "The perception won't change but it doesn't really matter."
