No Celtics among All-Star Game starters

The NBA All-Star Game starters have already been announced, and for the second consecutive season no Celtics are featured on the Eastern Conference starting lineup.

Leading vote-getter Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade will start for the East. Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Andrew Bynum are the Western Conference starters.

Two-time All-Star Rajon Rondo received the most votes of the Celtics -- almost 800,000 fewer than Wade -- as he and Ray Allen (a 10-time All-Star) finished third and fourth among Eastern Conference guards.

Kevin Garnett, a 14-time selection, finished fourth on the forwards list behind James, Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire. The one Celtics player with the best credentials this season, Paul Pierce (a 10-time All-Star), finished seventh among forwards.

The All-Star Game will be held on Feb. 26. The seven reserves on each squad, as voted by the...

J. Kraft on D&C: We try to do the right thing

Patriots team president Jonathan Kraft spoke with Dennis & Callahan from Indianapolis in an interview that aired Friday morning.

Kraft was asked if he's bothered by the negative national perception of the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick as they prepare to meet the Giants in Sunday's Super Bowl.

"You'd like people to think highly of you, but if they don't just for some emotional reason, there's nothing you can do," Kraft said. "We try to tangibly do the right thing, both on and off the field. I know that some people look at some of the things or some of the ways our organization operates and it doesn't always appear warm and fuzzy to the outside, but I think that's how you consistently -- at least with our existing football leadership structure -- how he believes you get the best results.

"I think we try to make up for it as an organization on the non-football side of things. But I understand if people aren't crazy...

Mashup: Peyton OK'd by docs, not Colts

According to multiple reports, two doctors cleared Colts quarterback Peyton Manning to return to football, and a spokesman for one of the doctors confirmed this fact.

"Peyton Manning underwent a thorough medical re-evaluation as part of a postoperative visit with his surgeon," read a Thursday statement from Dr. Robert Watkins, who performed neck surgery on Manning. "As a result of this examination, Manning is medically cleared to play professional football."

However, Colts owner Jim Irsay took to Twitter in an attempt to deny that Manning has the OK to return. Wrote Irsay: Peyton has not passed our physical nor has he been cleared to play for The Indianapolis Colts. Irsay said a team statement would be released later Friday.

Manning and Irsay have said they will sit down after the Super Bowl to determine the player's future with the team.

Thornton to Bruins: 'Show up'
By: DJ Bean

 

Bruins forward Shawn Thornton expressed frustration with the team's play -- particularly in the second period -- after Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Hurricanes at TD Garden. 

“Same thing we’ve been talking about for the last however long. We absolutely fall asleep in the second period,” Thornton said. “Not good enough at all. I don't think we had everyone going. Again.

“It seems to be the same old story. We're not that good that we can just come out and go through the motions and expect to be successful.”

The Bruins managed just five shots on goal in the second period Thursday and have been outscored 14-10 in the second period over their last nine games (4-4-1).

"It’s simple. Show up," Thornton said. "We need all 23 guys showing up and working hard and playing with a bit of an edge and not going over it -- that’s when we’re successful. We should know...

Hurricane season (mercifully) over: B's lose
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins turned in their latest poor showing and the Hurricanes took a 3-0 contest and swept the four-game season series between the teams for the first time in franchise history.

The Hurricanes got goals from Eric Staal and Tuomo Ruutu in the first and second periods, respectively. Picking up the shutout for Carolina was Cam Ward, who won all four games against the Bruins this season. Tuukka Rask took the loss. 

The Bruins came out and outshot Carolina 22-8 in the first period, but Staal's first-period tally and stronger second- and third-period efforts propelled the Hurricanes, who entered Thursday last in the Eastern Conference, past the B's. 

With the loss, the Bruins are 4-4-1 over their last nine games, their worst such stretch since the first month of the season. They will return to action Saturday when they host the Penguins at TD Garden.
