Low-5: Durant sends C's to another loss

Kevin Durant, with 28, and Russell Westbrook, with 26, combined for 54 points as the Thunder handed the Celtics their fifth straight loss, 97-88, Monday night at TD Garden. It's the first five-game skid in the "Big 3" era and the longest for the Celtics since a seven-game streak late in the 2006-07 season, the same year Boston lost a franchise-worst 18 straight. Kendrick Perkins, who received several ovations from the Boston crowd in his return, got into early foul trouble and finished with seven points and five rebounds in 28 minutes. 

Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 24 points while Kevin Garnett (12 points, 12 rebounds) and Jermaine O'Neal (12,11) each had double-doubles on the night. 

The Thunder closed out the third quarter on a 15-5 run to take a 72-62 lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Celtics made a run when Mickael Pietrus hit a 3-pointer from the left baseline with 7:34 left to close the lead to 74-69. ...

Krejci, Rask hand B's shootout win
By: DJ Bean

David Krejci's point streak ended Monday, but he scored when it mattered most, beating Scott Clemmensen with a quick snap shot in the fourth round of a shootout to give the Bruins a 3-2 win over the Panthers. 

Patrice Bergeron had two goals in regulation for the Bruins, giving him 11 points in seven games this month. He also scored the Bruins' first shootout goal after Benoit Pouliot and Tyler Seguin couldn't capitalize. Stephen Weiss scored the Panthers' only shootout goal.

Bergeron got the Bruins on the board just 80 seconds into the game, and though the Panthers applied heavy pressure on Tuukka Rask in the first period, they didn't see their efforts pay off until a Jason Garrison shot found its way past the Finnish goaltender. Bergeron answered back with a 5-on-3 goal, but when the second of the penalties expired, Shawn Matthias took advantage with a breakaway goal. 

A hooking penalty on Bergeron 36 seconds into overtime gave...

Wilfork: 'Good won't get the job done'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, said that New England's defense played good football for the entire game the first time this season in their playoff victory against the Broncos Saturday night. The Patriots defeated Denver, 45-10, advancing to the AFC Championship game this Sunday in Foxboro. Wilfork said the team's bye week helped shore up a defensive unit that struggled with inconsistency all season.

“The week we had off with the bye really helped us in different aspects of the game,” said Wilfork. “Everyone used their time well. We're looking for better football in the postseason. Now that we've seen it, guys can understand how it feels to play 60 minutes of good football. It felt real good. We want to keep this feeling and everyone knows it starts in practice.”

New England's next opponent is the Ravens, who defeated the Texans on Sunday in the divisional round, 20-13....

Welker expected Super Bowl 'every year'

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker went to the Super Bowl in his first year with the Patriots. He hasn't been back since. The experience in between, including overcoming an ACL tear before the '09 playoffs, has taught him not to take the journey to football's biggest stage for granted.

"After that ’07 year, I thought we’d be going to the Super Bowl just about every year," Welker said Monday. "That’s just not the way it works. It’s hard to get to a position like this. You definitely have to take full advantage of this and not take it for granted."

Of course, the Patriots went 16-0 in the regular season and beat the Jaguars and Chargers on their way to Super Bowl XLII, where they fell to the Giants.

"It’s always tough when your team is out there playing and you’re not able to, especially in the playoffs. I had such a good year that year, and wanting to be out there to help my team, I’m just...

Harvard 24th in coaches poll, still out of AP

Harvard's 2-0 week did little to impress nationwide media, as the Crimson remained out of the AP Top 25 that was announced Monday. Harvard is the sixth team of those on the outside, with 22 total votes. That places them well behind No. 25 Kansas State (102 votes).

The nation's Division 1 coaches were more appreciate of Harvard's 15-2 record, as the Crimson moved up one spot to No. 24 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll.

Following an uninspiring 70-61 victory over Monmouth on Tuesday, the Crimson blew out George Washington on Saturday, 69-48, jumping out to a 20-point halftime lead and never looking back.

The Crimson also got a boost with Florida State's rout of No. 3 North Carolina on Saturday. Harvard beat FSU in November, so the Seminoles' success helps Harvard's strength of schedule, a key factor in determining NCAA seedings in March. The Crimson's RPI ranking is 50.

Syracuse, cruising along with a 19-0 record, remains No. 1. The...
