Doc: Celts won't rotate starting centers

WALTHAM -- Speaking after the Celtics' practice Tuesday, Doc Rivers said that he doesn't plan on rotating Jermaine O'Neal and Shaquille O'Neal in the starting lineup depending on match-ups, instead going with one consistent starter until Kendrick Perkins returns from his knee injury.

 

"I doubt it. I don't usually do that," said Rivers when asked if he was going to alternate between two big men. "I usually just go with one, and that's what we'll do. I'm going to wait until the end of camp and the best big wins."

 

Regarding if he feels it makes a big difference which of the two get the starting nod, Rivers said, "It doesn't. I think it's going to come down to who we feel is going to give us the best chance to get off to a good start." The Celtics' coach also noted that he doesn't expect to play both Jermaine and Shaquille on the floor at the same time.

Bergeron's 5 points lead B's in Liberec
By: DJ Bean

LIBEREC, Czech Republic -- Patrice Bergeron had five points and newcomers Tyler Seguin and Nathan Horton scored again as the Bruins finished their preseason with a 7-1 victory over Liberec HC in Liberec, Czech Republic. 

 

Bergeron scored in the second and third periods, while also assisting Seguin's goal, a snipe from the point on the power play, as well as tallies from Jordan Caron and Blake Wheeler. Trade acquisitions Nathan Horton and Gregory Campbell also picked up goals in the first and third periods, respectively. 

 

Tim Thomas looked very sharp in net for the Bruins, playing the entire game and looking particularly impressive in a first period in which he made 14 shots. He allowed just one goal on the night, an Andrej Podkonicky strike into second period. 

 

From the Liberec the Bruins will travel an hour south to Prague, where they will continue to practice before opening the...

Dolphins fire special teams coach
By: Anonymous

The Dolphins fired special teams coordinator John Bonamego on Tuesday, just 12 hours after the team's breakdowns helped the Patriots post a 41-14 victory. Patriots safety Patrick Chung blocked a punt to set up a touchdown, then Chung blocked a field goal attempt that Kyle Arrington returned 35 yards for another score. Brandon Tate also returned the second-half kickoff 103 yards for a touchdown. The Dolphins led the game 7-6 at halftime.

 

"It's a hard decision to make," Dolphins coach Tony Sparano told The Miami Herald. "I know how hard this guy works. Nobody works harder than him at what he does. Special teams is a hard area because there's a lot of hands involved in that area."

 

The team announced that assistant special teams coach Darren Rizzo will take over the unit. Bonamego had been the Dolphins' special teams coach since 2008.

Wilfork on D&H explains anger toward media

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork stopped by for a visit with the Dale & Holley show Tuesday at Gillette Stadium. Wilfork did not take questions from the media following Monday night's win over the Dolphins, showing his disgust with the reporters' apparent lack of faith in his team. He explained his feelings on Dale & Holley.

 

"From what we've done and where we've been; this is seven years for me here," Wilfork said. "I don't think I've ever seen everybody like that go against us. I'm not living in the past. That's reality. That's real. I'm the last one to pay attention to the media and what the media says and all that, but you know what? At some point, [the game predictions] will come by my desk, or it will come by with me, somebody will put it up around the facility.

 

"At first I saw it, but I really didn't pay it no attention. I was like, 'OK, some stats they're putting up.' When I...

Brady on D&C: 'Showed what we're made of'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning, just hours after the team's impressive, 41-14 victory over the Dolphins in Miami. "This was a big game," Brady said. "We put a lot into this game. We put a lot of preparation into it. ... There's a lot of questions and doubts about our team. As a team, we really showed what we're made of."

 

Brady and coach Bill Belichick were visibly excited toward the end of the game, showing more emotion than fans were used to seeing. Brady said part of the display had to do with the team finally getting a victory on the road. "It's been a long time since we've had a big win on the road," he said. "And that doesn't matter if it's last year or last night. You love winning on the road. And that's something that we didn't do this year. When you finally get that win, there's a lot of emotion that's built up for a long time."
