Report: Iverson interested in joining Celtics

Finally willing to accept a spot on an NBA bench, Allen Iverson is interested in joining the already veteran Celtics once the lockout ends, his agent Gary Moore told The Globe.

"I have already spoken to Allen about that and many other opportunities," said Moore, "and of course he would be interested in anywhere in the NBA but Boston is particularly attractive to him, because of Danny Ainge, the organization, and one of the most respected coaches he knows in the business in Doc Rivers."

The league's 1996-97 Rookie of the Year, 2000-01 Most Valuable Player and two-time All-Star Game MVP, Iverson ended his NBA career in 2009-10 after playing for four teams (Nuggets, Pistons, Grizzlies, 76ers) in his final two seasons -- unwilling to accept a reserve role on any club.

"I think that is so overplayed," Moore told The Globe. "He said it on more than one occasion. And I've always...

McCourty (shoulder) questionable to return

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- An already depleted secondary took another hit on Sunday night when Devin McCourty injured his right shoulder in the second quarter while defending on Plaxico Burress. His return was announced as questionable. 

McCourty appeared to injure it when teammate Sterling Moore - making his first NFL start for the injured Patrick Chung - drilled McCourty with his helmet.

Thomas: Goalies don't expect that hit
By: DJ Bean

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas had some interesting things to say on the hit that Milan Lucic put on Sabres netminder Ryan Miller in the first period of the Bruins' 6-2 over Buffalo at TD Garden Saturday night. Lucic barreled over Miller after the goalie came out of his net to clear a puck the two were chasing. The B's left wing was assesed a charging minor for the play. 

There was no retaliation on Lucic, so Thomas was prepared for the possibility of the Sabres going after him. 

"Basically, from my perspective, after that happened, [I was] just trying to make sure I was on my toes," Thomas said. "I didn't know if there would be kind of a retribution hit. That's kind of the old school way."

While he didn't seem nearly as upset with the play as Miller, who called Lucic a "piece of [expletive]," Thomas did seem to understand Miller's unhappiness with the play.

Miller: Lucic a 'piece of [expletive]'
By: DJ Bean

Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller was asked following Saturday night's 6-2 loss to the Bruins whether he was injured when B's left wing Milan Lucic charged him in the first period, but he wasn't interested in talking about himself. He was interested in expressing his thoughts on Lucic and the dirty hit.

"I’m not going to really get into that," Miller said of his physical condition. "I just stuck around because I just want to say what a piece of [expletive] I think Lucic is. Fifty pounds on me, and he runs me like that. It’s unbelievable. Everyone in this city sees him as a big, tough, solid player. I respected him for how hard he played. That was gutless. Gutless, piece of [expletive]."

Lucic blocked a shot and was chasing a puck into the Sabres' zone when Miller darted out of his net to clear the puck. Upon Miller getting there first and sending the puck aside, Lucic didn't stop in time, barreling over the netminder and...

Seguin and again: B's crush Sabres
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins are finally over .500, and they have a lot of scoring and a couple of youngsters to thank for it. 

The B's defeated the Sabres, 6-2, at TD Garden Saturday to improve to 8-7-0 on the season behind three-point nights from Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand. Seguin had a two-goal showing, matching his rookie-year total of 11 goals, and contributed an assist. Marchand had a goal and two assists. The B's have now scored at least five goals in each of their last five games. 

Thomas Vanek got the Sabres on the board at 5:38 of the first period when he banked a shot off the back of Tim Thomas' leg and in. It was Vanek's 11th goal of the season. Rich Peverley, who made his return to the lineup after missing the last two games, tied it at one at 7:40 of the second before Seguin and Nathan Horton scored 16 apart to give the B's a 3-1 lead.

Buffalo starter Ryan Miller was replaced by Jhonas Enroth to begin the third period, but it did...
