Mo-mentous: Williams dominates, C's lose

Mo Williams had 28 points and DeAndre Jordan added 21 as the Clippers raced out to a 23-point lead and held on for a 108-103 win over the Celtics, who had their five-game winning streak snapped. Williams drilled several key shots late, including a pair of 3-pointers, to help the Clippers win their fourth straight. Ray Allen had 23 to lead the Celtics while Nenad Krstic added a season-high 20 in 38 minutes. The Celtics had all five starters in double figures but the bench was outscored, 26-12. 

 

Blake Griffin had just 12 points in 37 minutes for the Clippers, who shot 68 percent in the first half on their way to a 60-42 halftime lead. Things didn't get much better early in the second half as the Clippers built their lead to 23 early in the third quarter. But the Celtics slowly started to chip away, outscoring the Clippers, 24-16 in the third to cut the lead down to 10.

Buchholz impressive in Sox win

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Clay Buchholz continued his impressive spring on Wednesday night, tossing four scoreless innings for the Red Sox in a 2-1 win over the (split-squad) Orioles at City of Palms Park. Buchholz has yet to allow a run in his three spring training starts.

 

It wasn't an easy night for Buchholz, who pitched out of a couple of jams. He allowed a leadoff double to Jake Fox in the second inning, but Fox was thrown out at home on a Brendan Harris fielder's choice two hitters later. In the fourth inning, Buchholz surrendered a leadoff single to Felix Pie and a one-out double to Josh Bell. But he was able to force a pop-out to Harris and get Brandon Snyder to ground out to Marco Scutaro, stranding two runners in scoring position.

 

Snyder would be the final batter faced for Buchholz, who gave up four hits in his four innings, striking out three with no walks. He threw 56 pitches, 35 for strikes.

NFLPA chief: 18 games is off the table

NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith said Wednesday night that the idea of an 18-game regular season is off the table in the ongoing Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations between players and owners.

Speaking in Washington, D.C. with radio station 106.7 FM “The Fan,” Smith said for the first time publicly that there’s no way the players would agree an expanded season. Smith reiterated those comments shortly afterward in a conversation with SI.com.

“First of all, the league has never presented a formal proposal for 18 games,” he said. “But more importantly, it’s something that our players don’t want. Eighteen games is not in the best interest of our players’ safety, so we’re not doing it.”

The 18-game schedule is thought to be one of the three major sticking points between the two sides, with the other two points being the redistribution of $9 billion in revenue...

Canadiens fans call for Chara's arrest
By: DJ Bean

According to the Canadian Press, Montreal police have been 'inundated' with phone calls demanding Bruins captain Zdeno Chara's arrest. 

 

Chara was not suspended Wednesday after his hit on Max Pacioretty sent the Canadiens forward into a stanchion and left him with a severe concussion and fractured vertebrae.

 

The calls reportedly began coming in heavily in the minutes following the league's ruling to not suspend the Bruins' captain. The police have requested the fans stop.

Rivers: Wafer will be out 'for a while'

The Celtics will have 10 players available for their game Wednesday against the Clippers and will probably have 10 for their game Friday in Philadelphia. As it stands, Glen Davis will try to practice Saturday and Celtics coach Doc Rivers expect that Davis and Delonte West will return first, followed by Shaquille O'Neal.

 

As for Von Wafer, he said that he had his walking boot removed and was scheduled for tests Thursday to determine the extent of the injury. Both the player and the coach were vague on what exactly is wrong with Wafer, but he is expected to be out two to three weeks at least. "Von’s going to be out for a while," Rivers said. "He’ll return [this season] but it will be two weeks, maybe three. Maybe longer."
