Ray on snub: 'That's just KG'

Ray Allen said he didn't hold anything personal against Kevin Garnett after the Celtics big man did not acknowledge Allen when the former C's sharpshooter went over to the Boston bench late in the first quarter before checking into the game for the first time in a Heat uniform. 

"That's just KG," Allen told TNT's Craig Sager in an on-court interview immediately after the game. "He probably didn't see me coming. Those guys, I love those guys. I can't say enough good things about them. I love New England. It will always be my home and will always be a special place for me and my family." 

Allen played a pivotal role in Miami's 120-107 win on opening night. He started his night with a corner 3-pointer as the shot clock expired. He added another trey minutes later on an accidental bank shot. Allen finished with 19 points in 31 minutes off the bench.

Defenseless: C's can't stop Allen, Heat

Ray Allen scored 19 points in 31 minutes off the bench while LeBron James -- fighting leg cramps -- added 26 points and 10 rebounds as the defending NBA champions celebrated their ring and banner-raising ceremony with a 120-107 opening night win over the Celtics on Tuesday at American Airlines Arena.

Rajon Rondo had 20 points and 13 assists, falling just three rebounds shy of a triple-double. Rondo recorded his 25th straight game of double-figure assists, joining John Stockton and Magic Johnson as the only NBA players to accomplish the feat. Dwyane Wade scored a game-high 29 points for the Heat, who won the first meeting between the two teams since Miami elminated Boston in the Eastern finals last spring. 

Paul Pierce added 23 points and Kevin Garnett hauled in 12 rebounds for the Celtics, who did not show up defensively, allowing Miami to score 31 points in each of the first three quarters as the Heat shot 54 percent and built a 17-point...

Belichick: Not expecting a lot of trades

With the NFL trade deadline looming on Thursday, Patriots coach Bill Belichick, in his weekly appearance on WEEI's Big Show, suggested that he expected very little movement of key players. He noted that the issue of adjusting from one team's system to an unfamiliar one represents an impediment to midseason deals.

"I think the system in football is a little bit different, where a shortstop is obviously a shortstop, pitcher is pretty much a pitcher, but in football, the system and everything plays a lot into that, into how effective a player would be in your system relative to playing in another system. We’ve seen that many, many times through free agency, how players change teams and they’re really not the same player when they go to a different team in a lot of cases," said Belichick. "That’s a big issue. How long does it take? I don’t know. It would depend on the player’s familiarity with your system, his...

Patriots release LB Bobby Carpenter

The Patriots released linebacker Bobby Carpenter Tuesday evening. The 29-year-old, a veteran of six NFL seasons with Dallas (2006-09), Miami (2010) and Detroit (2010-11), joined the Patriots as an unrestricted free agent from Detroit on April 5. He was released Sept. 1 following training camp and subsequently re-signed on Oct. 2. He played in four games for the team, primarily in a special-teams role, and recorded two tackles. The 6-foot-2, 250-pounder was originally drafted in the first round (18th overall) of the 2006 NFL draft by Dallas out of Ohio State.

Belichick: Pats need 'good judgment' in bye

FOXBORO -- It's a message repeated around the NFL by head coaches to players - be smart and safe during the midseason off week. Following a practice on Thursday, the Patriots get their chance at rest this weekend and will spread out on their own for three days before returning next week to prepare for the Bills on Nov. 11 at Gillette Stadium. 

"Most important thing for all us is just to be careful, use good judgment and be careful, come back with a fresh attitude and be ready to go," Belichick said during a conference call on Tuesday afternoon. "Whenever it comes is a good time. It's now so we'll try to take advantage of it and use it the best we can to improve our team, to rest, to get treatment. All of those things [are] part of it."

Asked what his specific plans are Belichick said he hasn't finalized them yet. 

"I'm not really sure what my plans are for this weekend," Belichick said. "I'm...
