Heat use big second half to crush C's

LeBron James finished with 27 points and seven assists and Miami gained a big edge in the race for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference with a 100-77 win over the Celtics Sunday in Miami. The Heat now have a one-game lead over the C's with two games left in the regular season. (Chicago already has clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference.)

The Celtics, who had won their previous eight games against Miami, got 24 points and seven rebounds from Paul Pierce and 21 points from Kevin Garnett in the loss.

Boston was in command early, taking a nine-point lead, but Miami used a 15-6 run toward the end of the second quarter to help push out to a 47-40 lead at the half. The Heat extended that advantage throughout the the second half. The Celtics went on a brief run to cut a 22-point lead to 10 late in the fourth quarter, but Boston could get no closer.

Lester: Buchholz deal good for both sides

Prior to the Red Sox' series-finale against the Yankees, Jon Lester talked about the four-year, $30.5 million contract extension Clay Buchholz and the Red Sox agreed to. 

"We've got the core four guys for the same amount of time. It's good for both sides," said Lester of Buchholz' deal, which also includes two team options. "You don't have to worry about that spot anymore. It's one thing they have to worry about. It's one less thing he wants to worry about. He's financially set for the rest of his life."

The Red Sox now have Lester, Josh Beckett, and John Lackey under their control through '14, with the Sox possessing control of Buchholz's contract until after the '17 season.

Lester -- who signed a five-year, $30 million extension prior to the 2009 season while at relatively the same age (26) and experience level as Buchholz currently finds himself -- said he didn't talk to the righty throughout the negotiating...

No matter: B's lose regular season finale
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins finished their regular season schedule Sunday, taking a 3-2 loss to the Devils in New Jersey. 

Tuukka Rask took the loss for the B's, getting the start after Tim Thomas sealed the single-season save percentage record in his final start Saturday. Rask allowed goals to Patrik Elias, Vladimir Zharkov and Alexander Urbom. 

Rich Peverley scored the first goal for the Bruins, beating Johan Hedberg for his 18th goal of the year. A Dennis Seidenberg shot with less than four seconds remaining also yielded a Boston goal. Mark Recchi and Zdeno Chara did not play for the Bruins, as they stayed in Boston after playing the first 81 games of the season. 

The Bruins finished the regular season with a 46-25-11 record and 103 points. They will be the Eastern Conference's No. 3 seed when they go against the Canadiens in the playoffs begin next week.

Buchholz agrees to 4-year, $29.945M deal

According to multiple Major League Baseball sources, the Red Sox have agreed to a four-year, $29.945 million extension with pitcher Clay Buchholz that will take effect in 2012. The extension includes two club options, one for $13 million in 2016, another for $13.5 million in 2017. The 26-year-old wouldn't have been eligible for free agency until after the 2014 season; with the deal, he will remain with the Sox through at least 2015, with the options covering the 2016 and 2017 campaigns.

Last season Buchholz went 17-7 with a 2.33 ERA. The Sox starter has made two starts this season, the latest one coming Saturday afternoon with Buchholz surrendering five runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Buchholz told WEEI.com in February that he was open to a deal along the lines of the five-year, $30 million pact...
