Wiz rookie: 'We know [C's] are vulnerable'

After Wednesday's 100-94 overtime win against the Wizards, Doc Rivers said his team should've beaten the undermanned and lowly Wizards since they were without their two best players, John Wall and Nene. 

One of the youngest players in the NBA, Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal had a different take. The 19-year-old taken third overall in the most recent draft out of Florida, believes it was the Celtics who were there for the taking. 

"We know they're vulnerable," Beal said. "We know that they are an agressive team but they are a lot older than we are. So, we are going to try and wear them down. They have a decent bench and their bench comes in and gives them immediate scoring. Everybody has the green light. So, our plan is basically to wear them down and keep pushing the ball in transition and make sure our pick and roll defense is what it needs to be, especially on Paul Pierce."

Late in the first half, it was...

Mashup: Kobe angry as Lakers lose again

The Lakers are 1-4 after Wednesday's 95-86 loss to the Jazz in Salt Lake City, and Kobe Bryant, who only days ago was ripping impatient critics, is having trouble containing his frustration with everyone around him.

Bryant played Wednesday night with an anger he acknowledged he had not displayed in a while, although he wouldn't say the reason for his motivation.

"Nothing I care to share," said Bryant, who finished with 29 points and six turnovers.

Said teammate Dwight Howard: "Sometimes I think as a team, we ought to be able to not really show our frustrations that much. A lot of the guys look at me and Kobe and they feed off us, so we have to do a better job of keeping our frustrations on the inside and just playing through it so our teammates won't get down on themselves.

"I know [Bryant] was a little frustrated tonight. He wants to win just as bad as all of us do. We've just got to stay together, remember...

Source: Orioles had interest in Ortiz

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- According to a baseball source, the Orioles would have had interest in signing David Ortiz if the designated hitter didn't re-sign with the Red Sox before Boston's exclusive negotiating period ran out. The DH inked a two-year, $26 million deal with the Red Sox that will pay Ortiz $15 million per season if he isn't on the disabled list for more than 20 games due to an Achilles tendon injury.

Another source previously confirmed that the Rangers were potentially prepared to offer Ortiz a multi-year deal if the 36-year-old hit the open market. When asked about the report at the General Managers meetings Wednesday, Texas GM Jon Daniels declined comment.

Chris Davis served as the primary designated hitter for the Orioles in '12, manning the position 60 times. Davis would be moved to the outfield later on in the season, with Jim Thome picking up many of the at-bats.

Another rumor making the rounds recently, suggesting the...

Dooling accepts role in Celtics organization

Six weeks after his surprise retirement from the Celtics, Keyon Dooling accepted a role as a player development coordinator in the organization, he told reporters after the C's 100-94 victory against the Wizards.

"Wow first day on the job!" tweeted Dooling, who will likely have to relinquish his position as vice president of the National Basketball Players Association. "Such a different experience."

Averaging 4.0 points and 1.1 assists in 14.4 minutes over 46 games for the Celtics last season, Dooling earned a reputation as a positive locker room influence and mentor for young guards like Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley. C's teammate Brandon Bass even dubbed him "the Rev. Keyon Dooling" during the playoffs.

Doc: Despite win, C's 'not playing great'

The Celtics blew an 11-point fourth-quarter lead to a Washington team playing without its two best players and committed 19 turnovers in the process. Still, the Celtics, thanks to late heroics from Brandon Bass and energy from Chris Wilcox and Kevin Garnett, were able to eke out a 100-94 win in overtime Wednesday night at TD Garden.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers is searching for positives as his 2-2 team struggles to find an identity and rhythm.

“Well, we won the game," Rivers said. "And right now that’s the type of team we are. We’re not playing great. It’s good to win a game like that. We’ve won two like that. You knew coming into this night, no matter who you’re playing, when you’re play a team back-to-back games, you give them three days, you knew it’d be a tough game. But we made it so much harder. I thought we played for the first five minutes great, and then we went back to old habits...
