Rondo, Allen, Pietrus out for Celtics

The Celtics won't have Rajon Rondo for Monday's game against Orlando and they also won't have Ray Allen or Mickael Pietrus who were injured in Sunday's game against the Wizards. This will be the second game Rondo has missed with a sprained right wrist. Allen sprained his left ankle trying to avoid a screen from Jan Vesely in the first half and did not return to the game. Pietrus injured his shoulder during the game.

"Didn’t know it in the game but he hurt it pretty good, so we’ll do an MRI and we’ll find out," Doc Rivers said of Pietrus.

Without him and Allen, Rivers will start Sasha Pavlovic next to Avery Bradley in the backcourt. Keyon Dooling (knee) and Chris Wilcox (calf strain) are also both out. Rivers said he thought Rondo and Dooling would be available to play Thursday when the Celtics plat ay Orlando.

Thomas: Federal government 'out of control'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas issued the following statement Monday on why he chose not to attend the White House with his teammates:

"I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.

This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.

Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL. 

"This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT"

Wilfork on Big Show: Defense 'had faith'

Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork, in his weekly interview with The Big Show, said he wasn't sure whether his performance in the AFC championship game on Sunday was the best game he has played in his career. In the 23-20 victory against the Ravens, Wilfork created consistent pressure and accumulated six tackles and one sack. The veteran lineman attributed his effort to a strong performance in the week leading up to the game.

“It starts in practice,” Wilfork said. “I have to come to work. Guys have to see me working. If they don't see a guy who's been in the league for a long time working, what are they going to think? To say that was the best game [I've played], I don't know.”

With the victory, the Patriots advanced to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 5 against the Giants, who beat New England, 24-20, during the regular season. The defense continued its solid performance in the playoffs after facing heavy scrutiny for...

Kraft: 'Never been able to watch' SB loss

FOXBORO -- Less than 24 hours after his team won its seventh AFC championship and earned a berth in Super Bowl XLVI, Patriots owner Robert Kraft acknowledged Monday afternoon that he's never been able to watch a replay of the team's most crushing loss. 

"I've never been able to watch it," Kraft said when asked what he remembers about the Super Bowl XLII loss to the Giants four years earlier in Glendale, Ariz. 

The Patriots were 18-0 and 35 seconds from the first 19-0 perfect season in NFL history when Plaxico Burress hauled in a 13-yard game-winning touchdown pass from Eli Manning in the left corner of the end zone. 

Kraft also made reference to the heartbreak he felt when Asante Samuel let a potential game-clinching interception slip through his hands just moments earlier and Manning's desperation heave to David Tyree. 

"If he had held onto it, we would've been able to take a knee," Kraft said...

Obama to Bruins: 'Enough already, Boston'

The Bruins visited the White House on Monday as President Barack Obama honored the Stanley Cup champions for both their title as well as the organization's off-ice charitable activities. Though the Bruins were the first New England sports franchise to visit the White House in the Obama administration (the last Boston-based sports team to visit the White House was the Celtics during the final months of the tenure of President George W. Bush), the president took a playful shot at a region that has enjoyed seven major sports championships in the last 10 years, and that will now be represented in the Super Bowl once again by the Patriots.

"The Bruins, the Sox, the Celtics, now the Patriots. Enough already, Boston," Obama said. "What's going on?"

He then went on to pay tribute to the Bruins' championship run.

"Last year, this team endured a long season and an even longer playoffs. They are the first team in NHL ...
