Rivers: Bradley not close to returning

Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show on Thursday, the morning after the Celtics imporoved to 10-8 on the season after a 104-94 win over the Timberwolves. Kevin Garnett had 18 points and 10 rebounds in the win, and is now 10-0 against his former team with the Celtics. Rivers was asked if Garnett seems particulary focused when facing the franchsie he played for from 1995-2007.

"He was clearly ready, I loved how aggressive he was offensively, I love the fact that he wanted the ball the entire game," said Rivers. "That was nice. That makes us a better team."

Jared Sullinger also impressed in the victory, collecting seven rebounds off the bench in 18 minutes. Rivers was effusive in his praise of the rookie, who is averaging 4.7 rebounds in just 18.2 minutes per game this season.

"He's an unbelievable rebounder, he really is," Rivers said. "A terrific rebounder, he can shoot the...

Mashup: Chiefs attend service for Belcher

Chiefs players and staff attended a private memorial service Wednesday for Jovan Belcher, the linebacker who killed his girlfriend and then himself over the weekend.

General manager Scott Pioli gave a eulogy for Belcher during the one-hour service. Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel had tried to calm Belcher before the player shot himself in the stadium parking lot on Saturday.

“It was rough on him,” Hall of Famer Bobby Bell said of Pioli. “It’s a sad situation. You never want to be put under those situations. … You don’t want to see things like that. For him to get up and say something, I don’t know how he got through it.”

Chiefs players attending the service had little or nothing to say, but Bell summed up their feelings.

“You don’t wish this on anyone," said Bell, a Chiefs linebacker/defensive end from 1963-74. "He’s done what he did, and it’s over...
