Rondo: 'We can probably beat anybody'

After his fifth triple-double of the season and 18th of his career, Rajon Rondo spoke like a point guard who feels confident he can lead his team deep in the NBA playoffs, even against the powerhouses like the Heat and Bulls. 

"I think when we have at least four or five guys healthy, we follow the game plan," Rondo said after his 16-point, 14-assist, 11-rebound performance in Boston's 91-72 spanking of Miami Sunday at TD Garden. "But when I'm healthy, I think we can probably beat anybody."

Last year, Rondo suffered a grotesque dislocation of his left elbow in Game 3 against the Heat. The Celtics won that game but lost the Eastern semifinals four games to one. 

Rondo said he does not pay particular attention to the national spotlight, despite the fact that 14 of his career 18 triple-doubles have come on national TV. 

"I think my teammates put a spotlight on me more than the media or the televised...

No joke: Rondo (triple-double) routs Heat

Rajon Rondo recorded his fifth triple-double of the season and 18th of his career as the Celtics handed LeBron James and the Heat their worst loss of the season, 91-72, Sunday afternoon at TD Garden. Rondo had 16 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds for the Celtics, who won their fifth straight to maintain a one-game lead over the 76ers in the Atlantic Division. 

The Heat came in with the second-best record in the East, 37-13, but were overmatched from the onset by Rondo and the Celtics. Paul Pierce finished with 23 for the Celtics, who improve to 30-22. LeBron James had 23 points but was held without an assist for just the second time in his career. 

Early on, Rondo continued his brilliant play on national television in his career, making his first four shots from the floor, including a 3-pointer. He had 10 points, four rebounds and four assists in the first six minutes of the game as he picked apart the heart of the Miami defense. ...

Rivers: Pietrus 'not responding very well'

Mickael Pietrus was able to visit his teammates before they played the Heat on Sunday afternoon at the Garden, but he isn't likely to return to the court anytime soon. Pietrus has been out with what coach Doc Rivers called a grade-3 concussion, which is the most severe type of concussion.

"This was his first day, I think, of venturing out into the light," Rivers said. "He’s going to come in and say hi to the guys and then we’re going to try to get him back in the car and get him back home. He’s not responding very well." 

Rivers said the team hasn't started the baseline tests that Pietrus needs to be cleared by the NBA and there is no definitive timetable.

"I wouldn’t be surprised if he played next week. I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t see him. I just don’t know," Rivers said. "With that injury I don’t think anyone really knows now. When I played it...

Allen misses sixth game with ankle injury

For the third straight game Ray Allen tried to go through his presume shooting routine only to remain out with an ankle injury.

"He went through shootaround, it just didn’t feel like moving," coach Doc Rivers said. "We’re surprised a little bit, but you could see him moving around, he’s just not ready to play. We’re hoping. We have two days off after today and so hopefully by Wednesday [when they play the Spurs] he’ll be on the floor." 

Allen hasn't played since March 22 against Milwaukee. The Celtics have gone 4-1 and have won the last four games with Avery Bradley in the starting lineup.

"He literally, can’t play," Rivers said. "He wants to play and we want him to play. But he’s just not ready to play."

DL stint possible for Andrew Bailey (thumb)

According to a major league source, Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey is dealing with right thumb soreness that could result in a season-opening stint on the disabled list. The Red Sox are still gathering information on the injury as they determine how to proceed with the pitcher. 

UPDATE: Bailey, who was in the Red Sox dugout during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins, will fly to Boston on Monday to have his thumb examined. The Red Sox, manager Bobby Valentine told reporters, do not know how the pitcher incurred the injury.

The right-hander has pitched in six Grapefruit League games this spring, most recently on March 25, allowing three runs in six innings while striking out seven and walking two. He most recently pitched in a competitive environment on March 28, logging 1 2/3 innings in a minor league game. At that time, Bailey told reporters he was "ready to roll" for the April 5 season opener in Detroit, but...
