No offense: Celtics lose to Suns

The Celtics knew they would have a problem without Rajon Rondo who missed Friday night's game against the Suns at the Garden with a sore right wrist. They planned to run their offense through Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but without their one true point guard and playmaker neither option was enough to help them score enough points in a 79-71 loss to Phoenix.

Avery Bradley, who started for Rondo actually played well, scoring 10 points and only recording one turnover. Bradley also played solid defense on Steve Nash, limiting the former MVP to 11 points. Rondo is questionable for their game Sunday against the Wizards.

But the Celtics once again fell behind early and while Mickael Pietrus 3-pointer gave them the lead late in the third quarter, they didn't have enough offense to pull of the win. The 71 points tied the mark for the fewest in the Big Three era, equalling the 71 they scored last season against the Suns.

Rondo's out against Phoenix, Bradley starts

Rajon Rondo will not play against Phoenix and he may not be ready for Sunday's game against the Wizards with a sore right wrist. MRI's were negative, but coach Doc Rivers said he knew as early as Thursday night that Rondo would be out of the lineup. Rondo fell on his wrist late in the third quarter of Wednesday's game after a hard foul from Toronto forward Linas Kleiza.

Second-year guard Avery Bradley gets the start over E'Twaun Moore in Rondo's absence because Rivers wanted to have him play with the team's better offensive players in Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett.

"E’Twaun offensively runs the team better at the point guard position, but defensively Avery’s better and I can’t morph them," Rivers said.

The Celtics will have a different look offensively without Rondo.

"We’ll try not to run a point guard offense tonight, if that’s possible," Rivers said. "It’s...

Source: Nothing imminent with Scutaro trade

According to a major league source, nothing is imminent involving a trade for Marco Scutaro between the Red Sox and Rockies.

Earlier in the day, Troy Renck of the Denver Post initially tweeted, "the Rockies are close to acquiring Boston's Marco Scutaro." However, later on Renck tweeted that while the Red Sox and Rockies had discussed a trade for Scutaro, "it appears now won't happen."

Last season Scutaro posted career-highs in both batting average (.299) and slugging percentage (.423) in 113 games played. Boston exercised Scutaro's $6 million option, the final year of his contract, back on Oct. 30.

One possible motivation for any move involving Scutaro would be to free up payroll, with the shortstop schedule to make $6 million in 2012. While there...
