Pietrus expected to make debut Friday

According to multiple reports, newly-signed swingman Mickael Pietrus isn't expected to play for Celtics until Friday's home opener against the Pistons at TD Garden. He will not be joining the team during its current three-game road trip, which includes stops in Miami and New Orleans, Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

Pietrus, who inked a one-year deal worth $1.3 million with the Celts, is scheduled to undergo a physical Monday. The 29-year-old is coming off an offseason in which he underwent surgery on his right knee. The ailment forced Pietrus to miss the last 12 games of the Phoenix Suns' 2010-11 regular season and led the Toronto Raptors to call off a deal for the eight-year veteran earlier this month. The Suns ultimately worked out a buyout for Pietrus, allowing for the signing by the Celtics.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters Friday that acquisitions, such as the 6-foot-6 Pietrus, might not be eased into action as if it was a...

Brady: Playoff opponent doesn't matter

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, in his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show, said that while he and other members of the Patriots are aware of potential playoff opponents, it's not a topic with which they concern themselves. With a 12-3 record, the Patriots have locked up a first-round bye and another win could give them home-field advantage, but Brady underscored that those are less pressing concerns than producing strong efforts on a weekly basis, something that will allow the team to achieve goals such as the top seed in the AFC.

"It’s hard to not be aware of [playoff scenarios]," said Brady. "[But] we definitely don’t sit there in team meeting rooms and say these are all the scenarios that can play out.

"Whoever we play in the playoffs is going to be a damn good team," he added. "It doesn’t matter who it is. We’re going to need to play our best game of the year....

Mashup: No fine for Jets' Ryan after incident

The NFL will not investigate the on-field incident after Saturday's game between the Jets and Giants, in which Rex Ryan exchanged some words with Giants running back Brandon Jacobs.

Ryan, who was fined $75,000 for swearing at a fan who mocked him at halftime of the Jets' loss to the Patriots earlier this season, met Jacobs at midfield after the Giants' 29-14 victory.

Said Jacobs: "He told me, 'Shut the [expletive] up, wait until we win the Super Bowl.' I told him I would punch him in the face. I told him that out of all these Giants on this football team, you're talking to the wrong one."

Jacobs also reportedly said to Ryan: "Time to shut up, fat boy."

Walker on Garnett shove: 'Disrespectful'

After he missed a potential game-tying shot at the buzzer of the Celtics' 106-104 loss to the Knicks on opening day, Celtics forward Kevin Garnett shoved ex-Celtics player Bill Walker -- who was defending him on the play -- in the neck. The two were quickly separated by members of both teams.

"I guess he got mad that I contested his shot," Walker told reporters. "He grabs my hand, tangles it up, I pulled my hand away and then we had a situation."

Walker said that he was unsure where Garnett hit him, but implied that it was evidence of a pattern of dirty tactics.

"You're putting your hands in my face . . . Come on. Y'all know what the man does," said Walker. "I don't know where he caught me . . . I just know I saw his hand coming in my face, you know what I mean? That's disrespectful."

Garnett declined comment to reporters, while Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that he did not have a...

Celtics come up short in Christmas classic

In a wildly-entertaining opener to the NBA season, the Celtics dropped a heartbreaker, 106-104, to the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

The Celtics shook off a shaky first half and used a 35-17 third quarter to erase a 10-point halftime deficit. But the Knicks did not go away. With the teams trading baskets down the stretch, Carmelo Anthony put the Knicks ahead, 104-102 but Marquis Daniels slithered backdoor for a layup to tie the game. Anthony gave the Knicks a 106-104 lead with 16.4 seconds remaining on a pair of free throws.

Daniels missed an open 3-pointer in the corner, but Rajon Rondo tracked down the rebound, giving the Celtics one more chance, but Kevin Garnett's jumper came up short.

Rondo had 31 points, 12 assists and five steals. Ray Allen added 20 points and Brandon Bass made his Celtics' debut a memorable one with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Anthony had 37 points for the Knicks.

The Celtics clearly missed Paul Pierce...
