Celtics beat Bucks, lose home court

The good news for the Celtics in their regular-season finale was that Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett and Mickael Pietrus all returned to the lineup and looked good. The bad news was that even with their 87-74 win over the Bucks, the C's will be on the road for Game 1 of the playoffs thanks to the Hawks' victory over the Mavericks. The first-round opener will take place Sunday night. 



In 25 minutes, Rondo had 15 assists to extend his streak of double-digit assist games to 24 straight. Playing his first game since March 15, Pietrus scored nine points in 16 minutes and made his first three shots. Garnett looked rusty but made it through his 11 minutes without incident. 



Ray Allen missed his ninth straight game with an injured ankle, but coach Doc Rivers said it was "probable" that Allen would be ready for the playoff opener. Greg Stiemsma also sat out, but he should be fine for Game 1. Of the Celtics who did play, Ryan Hollins had a big...

Crawford has ulnar collateral ligament sprain

CHICAGO -- The Red Sox released a statement Thursday night clarifying the condition of Carl Crawford's left elbow.

Carl Crawford was examined by the Red Sox medical staff.  He was diagnosed as having a left elbow ulnar collateral ligament sprain. A conservative treatment protocol was recommended. Carl was also examined by Dr. James Andrews who was in agreement with the assessment and plan. Carl received a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection and will be shut down from baseball activity during the initial phase of his treatment.

(For more on what a PRP injection is, click here.)

Crawford's examination with Dr. Andrews took place Thursday afternoon. Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine explained Wednesday that the outfielder wanted to get a second opinion on his elbow after experiencing some discomfort earlier in the week throwing the ball in during batting...

Panthers draft BC's Luke Kuechly

Boston College consensus All-American linebacker Luke Kuechly was taken by the Carolina Panthers with the No. 9 overall pick in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night. 

"I'm so pumped up that they took an interest in me, it's an honor," Kuechly told reporters Thursday night in a conference call. Kuechly spent the NFL draft not in New York City but rather with his family in Cincinnati. 

Kuechly impressed scouts in his three years at Chestnut Hill. This past season, when he won the Lombardi, the Lott IMPACT trophy and the Bronko Nagurski trophy. He led the nation with 191 tackles (102 solo) during the season, averaging nearly 16 tackles per game.

Early on in his career, Kuechly showed versatility that NFL scouts love, moving from his natural inside linebacker position to the outside when Mark Herzlich was diagnosed with bone cancer. 

Kuechly compiled his stats in the 12-game regular season, as the...

Luck, RGIII, Richardson drafted 1-2-3

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck was chosen by the Colts with the first overal pick of the NFL Draft Thursday, while the Redskins followed through on a promise made by their general manager Bruce Allen earlier in the day and selected Baylor quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin, III. Luck entered this draft as the consensus No. 1 overall pick to succeed Peyton Manning in Indianapolis. 

After completing a trade with the Vikings in the hours leading up to the draft, the Browns then chose Alabama running back Trent Richardson, one of five Crimson Tide players projected as possible first-round picks in the weeks leading up to the draft. The Browns were slotted at No. 4 but wanted to pick Richardson badly and traded their pick at No. 4, to go along with picks in the fourth, fifth and seventh rounds. Richardson was the star running back of the national champion Alabama team that beat LSU in the BCS title game in early January. ...

Rivers: Consider Allen 'probable' for playoffs

Ray Allen wasn't in the Celtics lineup for the final game of the regular season, but Doc Rivers still thinks there's a good chance that his veteran guard will be on the floor for Game One of their playoff series with the Hawks, which begins on Sunday.

"It’s a concern that’s all I can tell you. I don’t know much more than that," Rivers said. "I think he’s probable. In football terms, isn’t that the word they use when there’s a chance more than 50 percent that he’s going to play? So, let’s put him at probable."

Allen was joined on the sidelines by Greg Stiemsma, who Rivers is sitting out for precautionary reasons. Steimsma should be fine to start the playoffs. Kevin Garnett, Mickael Pietrus and Rajon Rondo all were in the lineup against the Bucks.

While Rivers would have liked to have given Allen a game to get his rhythm back, he think Allen can still be a factor in the...
