C's lose to Sixers in preseason finale

In their final preseason tuneup, Celtics coach Doc Rivers played his regulars significant minutes but the C's were on the losing end of an 88-79 final score.  

Jeff Green had another strong outing with 12 points and 9 rebounds. His night was highlighted by a pair of athletic dunks and two blocks on Philly 7-footer Spencer Hawes at the rim. Green started alongside Paul Pierce on the wing with Brandon Bass (10 points, 4 rebounds) and Kevin Garnett up front and Rajon Rondo at the point. 

Rondo had 12 points and 10 assists, while Garnett added 8 points and 7 rebounds in 23 minutes. Courtney Lee, Jared Sullinger and rookie Kris Joseph made up the rest of Rivers' rotation until he emptied his bench in the fourth quarter.

The Celtics were without Darko Milicic (wrist), Chris Wilcox (back) and Avery Bradley (shoulder surgery). New addition Leandro Barbosa has not been cleared to play yet as he is resolving visa issues. Rivers also gave...

McCourty: 'My teammates saved my life'

FOXBORO -- After nearly fumbling away a win in devastating fashion, Devin McCourty was grateful to his Patriots teammates after a 29-26 overtime win over the Jets Sunday at Gillette Stadium. McCourty, after returning a kickoff 104 yards in the first quarter for a touchdown, fumbled a kickoff at the Patriots 18 after the Jets had tied the game, 23-23. The Jets did not take full advantage and converted only a field goal with 1:37 left to take a 26-23 lead. 

"My teammates saved my life today," McCourty said. "A bad mistake in the fourth quarter that I just have to do a better job of holding the ball. This was just a total team win. We just kept fighting. Things didn't go our way the whole game today. We made enough plays when we needed to for the win."

McCourty was rescued when Stephen Gostkowski hit a game-tying 43-yard field goal at the end of regulation to force overtime and a 48-yarder in overtime to provide the margin of...

Survival: Pats blow lead, beat Jets in OT

FOXBORO -- Stephen Gostkowski connected on a 48-yard field goal with 11:02 left in overtime and Jermaine Cunningham and Rob Ninkovich combined for a strip-sack that ended the game on the next possession as the Patriots blew a big lead but came back to beat the Jets, 29-26, in overtime at Gillette Stadium.

In what appeared to be another shocking collapse, the Patriots blew a 10-point fourth-quarter lead and trailed when Nick Folk hit his fourth field goal of the day from 43 yards with 1:37 left in the fourth. Devin McCourty - who returned a kickoff for a TD earlier - fumbled a kickoff at the Patriots 18 after the Jets tied the game with a field goal. The Patriots improve to 4-3 and sole possession of first in the AFC East, a half-game ahead of the idle Dolphins and a game ahead of the Jets and Bills.

Gostkowski forced overtime by drilling a 43-yard field goal at the fourth-quarter gun from nearly the identical spot he missed at the end of the...

Barbosa received interest from Lakers

Leandro Barbosa ultimately chose the Celtics despite talks with the Lakers about joining them. He also said the crowded backcourt situation didn't deter him from signing with Boston. 

"The Lakers had interest in myself, but I think Boston would be better for me," Barbosa said. "My agent talked and he said it would be great for me to be here. It’s the kind of situation that I was looking for, especially to play with [Rajon] Rondo. He likes to run and I love to run, so I think it will work really well." 

As for playing time, Barbosa said he wasn't concerned despite the presence of Rondo, Courtney Lee, Jason Terry and Avery Bradley when Bradley returns from injury. 

"They’re all good players. I’m here just to help," Barbosa said.  "That will be on Doc [Rivers]. Doc’s call. He’s the coach. Whatever he has to do. I’m here to help."
