No change: Shaq will not play in Game 4

NEW YORK -- The Celtics went through a film session and a walkthrough at Madison Square Garden on Saturday and there is no change with Shaquille O'Neal. The center will not play in Game 4 on Sunday, although Celtics coach Doc Rivers maintains that Shaq will play when he's able. "He’s not playing tomorrow," Rivers said "He didn’t feel great, so I’m not taking a chance. I’d still like to use him. If he could play I’d play him because I think it would be good for him. The minute he can play he’ll be on the floor."

Lester strong, Red Sox hang on for win

Jon Lester continued an impressive stretch by Red Sox starting pitchers, not allowing a run over six innings while leading the Sox to a 4-3 win over the Angels Friday night in Anaheim. The victory moved Terry Francona's team to 8-5 after its six-game losing streak to begin the season.

Lester, who struck out eight and walked two, departed after 111 pitches, holding a 4-0 lead. It marked the seventh straight game the Red Sox starter has allowed two or fewer earned runs, a stretch that has resulted in a combined ERA of 1.19.

"I remember back about the middle of that homestand, somebody asked me: 'What's the best way to get it going?'" Francona told reporters after his team's win on his 52nd birthday. "And I said, 'A time or two through the rotation and have them give us a chance every night.' And that's exactly what's happened."

The Angels made it interesting against Red Sox relievers, scoring once in the seventh against...

Stoudemire: 'No way I'll be 100 percent'

Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire scored just seven points on 2-for-8 shooting and played 32 minutes in the Celtics 113-96 win in Game 3 on Friday. After sitting out the second half of Game 2 with back spasms, Stoudemire was a game-time decision and clearly was not himself. He's not likely to be for Sunday's Game 4 either. "There's no way I'll be 100 percent by Sunday," he said. "I knew I wasn't 100 percent [in Game 3], but I also knew my teammates needed me to be out there. I felt good enough to play but I wasn't 100 percent. I feel bad for the fans. They deserve it. My teammates also."

Stoudemire said that he didn't feel like he could draw contact, which is a big part of his game. He also said his quickness wasn't there. "Nobody expected him to go out and be a superhero," Carmelo Anthony said. "He gave us what he could and I respect that."

Rivers: 'We kept the game simple'

The Celtics have been preaching defensive rebounding and ball movement the last three days and both were clearly evident in their 113-96 win over the Knicks in Game 3 of their first round playoff series. "We got stops and then offensively we kept the game simple," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "I thought it was one of our best jobs setting picks, maybe this year." 

That pick setting allowed Paul Pierce (38 points) and Ray Allen (32) to light up the New York night. The two combined to make 25 of 34 shots and go 14-for-19 from beyond the 3-point line. Game 4 is Sunday afternoon and the Celtics have a chance to record their first playoff sweep since 1992 when they swept the Pacers in three games in the first round.

Pierce, Rondo help C's dominate Knicks

NEW YORK -- The Celtics jumped out to a 22-5 lead out of the gate and never looked back, beating the Knicks in Game 3 of the teams' Eastern Conference first-round series, 113-96, Friday night at Madison Square Garden.

Leading the way for the Celtics, who now have a 3-0 series lead, were Paul Pierce (38 points) and Ray Allen (32). Pierce went 14-of-19 from the field, while Allen made eight of his 11 3-point attempts.

Also turning in a stellar game for the Celtics was Rajon Rondo, who set the tone with 15 points, 20 assists and 11 rebounds. 

The closest the Knicks would get was five points in the first half, but a third quarter which saw the Celtics out-score New York 34-19 sealed the hosts fate. The Celts also out-rebounded the Knicks, 43-33. 

Amar'e Stoudemire, who was battling a bad back, wasn't a factor for the Knicks, collecting just seven points and three rebounds. Carmelo Anthony couldn't come close to his 42-point...
