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'...
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...
For the second straight game, it took until the second period for the Bruins to come alive offensively, but once they did, it was substantial enough to seal a victory. The B’s responded to a 1-0 Devils lead with four unanswered goals — one from each line — in the second off Martin Brodeur and hung on for a 4-1 victory at the Prudential Center.
Notable individual feats were accomplished for the Bruins, as Jordan Caron picked up his first NHL goal, Tyler Seguin had his first career assist, and Nathan Horton picked up his 300th career point in assisting Milan Lucic’s tally.
Tim Thomas made 31 saves on the night, doing so six days after stopping all 29 shots he faced in last Sunday’s 3-0 shutout over the Coyotes. Dainius Zubrus scored the lone Devils goal on a rebound in the second period.

Once again, the Rangers carried a five-run lead into the eighth inning. But one night removed from their bullpen meltdown against the Yankees, five Rangers relievers combined to deliver 3 1/3 shutout innings to secure a 7-2 victory, and send the best-of-seven American League Championship Series back to New York tied, 1-1.
Texas starter Colby Lewis tossed 5 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits while punching out six. Meanwhile, for the second straight game, the Rangers jumped on the Yankees starter and knocked him out after four innings, this time hammering New York right-hander Phil Hughes for seven runs.
Leadoff man Elvis Andrus had an infield single and ultimately stole home on the back end of a double steal to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead in the first, and former Red Sox first-round pick David Murphy blasted a solo homer to right field to add on another run in the second. The Rangers scored two runs in the second...
HARTFORD -- Speaking prior to his team's preseason game against the Knicks at XL Center, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that not only are the C's going to have more of an offensive presence near the paint, but that one of the ways they are going to accomplish their goal of improved post play is by using point guard Rajon Rondo on the block.
"Paul [Pierce] loves the post, so does Kevin [Garnett]. Rondo is the guy, for me, who is the new guy that we can actually use," Rivers explained. "Rondo is better than you think down there. We were working on it a lot last year, we just never had the confidence to do it.
"What makes him effective is that you have to guard him down there. You can't back off of him on the post. When he's guarded, it not only spreads the floor, but it makes him a better passer."
Rivers said that the Celtics were forced to go away from pounding the ball...
