Inconsistent C's lose to Chicago

Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer scored 23 points each to lead the Bulls past the visiting Celtics, 89-80, Thursday night in Chicago.

The game was tied at 69 before Chicago closed with a 20-11 run to pick up its seventh win in its last eight games.

The Celtics, who lost for the fourth time in the last five games, got another superlative effort from Rajon Rondo, who finished with a team-high 17 points, as well as eight assists and seven rebounds. The Bulls were without star Derrick Rose, who missed his fourth straight game because of back problems, but were buoyed by 15 points and 15 rebounds from Joakim Noah.

Garnett returns, Rose out for Bulls

The Celtics will have Kevin Garnett back in the lineup against the Bulls on Thursday night after he sat out Wednesday's game with a hip flexor. It was the first game Garnett has missed this season, and the Celtics' defense suffered noticeably without him in a loss to the Pistons.

Bulls star Derrick Rose will not play on Thursday. The reigning MVP has missed the last three games with back spasms, including Sunday's game that the Celtics won, 95-91.

Ainge: Celtics had waiver claim on Lin

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said on his weekly interview with The Big Show that the team put in a waiver claim on Jeremy Lin when he was cut by Golden State in December. The Rockets had priority on the waiver wire over the Celtics and won the claim, but Ainge said he didn't put in a claim when Houston waived the former Harvard star because the C's roster was set.

"We liked Jeremy Lin some but nobody could have predicted that he would be this good," Ainge said. "I always say it's an opportunity league. Not only did he get an opportunity to play, finally, but an opportunity to play in a system that does what he does best. I'm really happy for the kind. He really is a great kid. It really is a fun story."

As for his own roster, Ainge said that he was encouraged by his team's defense, but acknowledged that, "Our team has been very up and down, very inconsistent."

Peverley back to Boston for testing
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Rich Peverley has left the team and traveled back to Boston for testing on his right knee.

Peverley injured his knee in the third period of Wednesday's game against the Canadiens when he collided with Habs blueliner Hal Gill. He left the game and did not return. He is not expected to be available for Friday night's game against the Jets, with Josh Hennessy likely to play in his place.

The versatile Peverley had been playing on the team's top line in place of the concussed Nathan Horton.

Source: Sox sign former Pirate Ohlendorf

FORT MYERS -- An industry source has confirmed to WEEI.com that the Red Sox have signed veteran right-hander Ross Ohlendorf to a minor-league contract. The deal calls for Ohlendorf to make $900,000 if he is added to the major league roster. The right-hander does have an option remaining, and he is not eligible for free agency (assuming he is added to the major league roster) until after the 2014 season.

Ohlendorf had an 8.15 ERA in eight appearances (all starts) with the Pirates in 2011 and was released by Pittsburgh after the season. The 29-year-old Ohlendorf, a Princeton graduate, had his best season with the Pirates in 2009, winning 11 games with a 3.92 ERA in 29 starts. (To see his complete career statistics, click here.)

Peter Gammons was first to report the deal between the Sox and...
