Brady: Pats better without Moss is 'foolish'

In an interview Sunday with Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network, Tom Brady dismissed a CBS report that he and Randy Moss had an altercation the week before the wideout was dealt to Minnesota. 

 

"There was nothing to that [report]," Brady said. "That sounds like little girl games that little girls play. We are both big boys and that's not the way it works here."

 

Brady was also asked about the loss of Moss and how it will affect the Patriots on the field.

 

"You don't lose Randy and say we're better," Brady said. "I'd be foolish to say that."

Shaq on Oct. 26: 'I've had bigger openers'

HARTFORD -- Speaking after the Celtics' 97-84 preseason win over the Knicks at the XL Center Saturday night, Shaquille O'Neal said that all the talk about the Oct. 26 season opener against the Miami Heat being one of the biggest opening games in league history was over-stated.

 

"In the last 20 years I've had bigger openers," said O'Neal after scoring six points in 13 minutes. "It's big to you guys, but you guys like the hype. Everybody wants to talk about the young team, but the last 10 years I think I've been there I think four times and I haven't seen a young time do it yet.

 

"Especially with all the social media … I've been in much bigger games."

 

Part of O'Neal's reasoning for the tilt with the Heat not being what many are identifying it as was because of the construct of his team's opponent, the Heat. With Miami's three stars -- Dwayne Wade (28 years-old), Chris Bosh...

Lincecum, Giants claim Game 1 over Phillies

A No. 8 hitter showed up the battle of the aces. Giants outfielder Cody Ross, despite hitting in front of pitcher Tim Lincecum, jumped on a pair of Roy Halladay fastballs -- one in the top of the third, and one in the top of the fifth -- for solo homers to lead San Francisco past the Phillies, 4-3, in Game 1 of the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.

 

Halladay, who threw a no-hitter in his postseason debut in the Division Series, extended his no-hit streak to 11 innings before Ross jumped on a 1-1 offering and blasted it deep into the left field bleachers at Citizens Bank Ballpark. After Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz responded with a solo homer in the bottom of the inning, Ross' second solo homer of the night gave the Giants a lead they never relinquished.

 

The Giants tacked on a pair of runs in the sixth against Halladay, giving Lincecum enough room to steer his club to victory. Though Phillies outfielder...

Avery Bradley's ankle still a problem

HARTFORD -- Rookie guard Avery Bradley is still struggling with his surgically-repaired right ankle, having to sit out the Celtics' 97-84 preseason win over the Knicks Saturday night.

 

"I don't know if you looked (Friday) night, we put him in and within two minutes you could see it," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "So that obviously hasn't gone the way we would like, and I'm more upset for him because this is not the way you want to break in the NBA where you're frustrated, you can't play. You know we have to probably try something else because what we're doing is clearly not working. [Trainer] Eddie) [Lacerte] and I talked about it last night -- I don't know what -- but what we're doing now is not working."

 

The Celtics' first-round pick in last June's draft, who has played in three preaseason games (totaling 15 minutes), explained that he "tweaked it a little bit" Friday, forcing the Celts'...

KG, Celts keep rolling along with another win

HARTFORD -- Kevin Garnett continued to show how much he has improved physically since last season, leading the Celtics' to a 97-84 win over the Knicks Saturday night at the XL Center with 20 points in just 19 minutes. 

 

Garnett finished the Celtics' second-to-last preseason game shooting 9-for-11 from the floor. He came into the game averaging just six points and 15 minutes per contest, shooting 40 percent from the field. 

 

Rajon Rondo played the most of any of the Celtics' starters, scoring two points to go with nine assists in 26 minutes. Also turning in solid offensive outings were Paul Pierce (16 points in 23 minutes), and Glen Davis, who netted 15 points in 25 minutes. Shaquille O'Neal got the start at center for the C's, playing 13 minutes and scoring six points (going 2-for-2 from the foul line).

 

The Celtics, who are now 6-1 on the preseason, have one more exhibition game (Wednesday vs...
