Report: Ex-Celtic Wallace eyes comeback

One-time Celtic Rasheed Wallace is considering coning out of retirement to play this season, Yahoo! Sports reported. While the four-time All-Star may still generate interest, no teams have contacted him or his agent, per the report.

The 37-year-old Wallace retired after the 2010 season and was waived by the Celtics later that summer. In his one season in Boston, Wallace shot a career-low 41 percent from the floor and just 28 percent from 3-point range. He did bounce back in the playoffs with a handful of clutch performances, but he called it quits after Game 7 of the finals against the Lakers.

There have been on indications that the Celtics would consider brining him back, and they have 15 players under contract and couldn't add another without making a roster move.

Bruins hang on to beat Canadiens
By: DJ Bean

It wasn't the prettiest game, but the Bruins held off the Canadiens, 2-1, Thursday night at TD Garden. 

Jordan Caron scored 1:23 into the game, taking advantage of a good bounce off a Johnny Boychuk dump-in and tapping the puck into the open net. Goaltender Carey Price had left his net to tend to the puck, but it bounced off the end boards and in front to Caron. Milan Lucic made it 2-0 early in the third period with a backhander in front of the net that may have been tipped in by Habs defenseman Josh Gorges. 

Tim Thomas lost his shutout bid with 7:14 remaining in the contest when Shea Weber beat the Bruins' netminder with a wrist-shot. Former Bruin Tomas Kaberle picked up the primary assist on the goal.

Thursday's game concluded a four-game home stand for the Bruins. The team will begin a four-game road-trip Saturday night when they face the Hurricanes.

BC holds off Clemson for first ACC win

Dennis Clifford scored 15 points, including the game-winning basket with 42 seconds remaining, as Boston College edged Clemson, 59-57, in an ACC game Thursday night at Conte Forum.

Lonnie Jackson added 14 points for the Eagles, who improved to 6-10 overall and 1-1 in league play.

Andre Young scored 12 points for Clemson (9-7, 1-1), while Milton Jennings had nine points and 15 rebounds.

Both teams struggled from the free throw line in the final minute, missing 3-of-4 apiece. The most costly misses belonged to Clemson's Devin Booker, who was fouled while grabbing an offensive rebound with one second left and his team down by two points. Booker missed the first free throw and then, while missing the second intentionally, was called for entering the lane before the ball hit the rim. BC then inbounded the ball to run out the clock.

Clifford gave BC a 58-56 lead on an off-balance lay-in with 42 seconds remaining. But with...

Dooling questionable for Bulls game

WALTHAM -- Keyon Dooling and Jermaine O'Neal both didn't practice on Thursday and coach Doc Rivers said Dooling was questionable for Friday's game against Chicago with a sore knee. "They’re all questionable, but yes, I think Keyon is [questionable]," Rivers said. "I think JO will go."

If Dooling can't play, Rivers could use rookie E'Twaun Moore or veteran Marquis Daniels in his place. Moore could emerge as a second ballhandler, although he hasn't had the opportunity yet. Daniels lost his spot in the rotation to Mickael Pietrus, but could play some off-guard minutes between Pietrus and Avery Bradley.

"Either they’ll play together or Pietrus will play because Pietrus is playing, I can tell you that," Rivers said. "Then Marquis will fit in whenever we need him."

Ainge: 'Fair' to say Celtics look too old so far

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, in an interview on The Big Show, suggested that the notion that the Celtics have looked "too old" at this point in the season has basis. While he noted that it is early in the season, and the team still is working its way into shape (particularly with Paul Pierce still trying to get into shape after missing all of training camp due to injury), Ainge had a dim view of his 4-5 team following what he referred to as a "miserable" performance in Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.

"I think that’s a fair assessment right now," Ainge said when asked whether the team looks too old. "Nine games into the season, yeah, that would be a fair assessment, but I’m hoping that guys are better than they’re playing and they have something left, but time will tell."

Ainge cited two key areas that required improvement, beyond the conditioning...
