Report: Pats close to deal with Lloyd

According to a report in The Boston Globe, the Patriots are close to a deal with free agent wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.

Lloyd led the NFL with 1,448 receiving yards in 2010 for the Broncos but was traded to the Rams in October 2011 after failing to reach agreement on a long-term deal with the Broncos. He caught 51 passes for 683 yards and four touchdowns in his 11 games with St. Louis.

If Lloyd does in fact sign with the Patriots, it would reunite him with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who was his head coach in Denver and offensive coordinator last season in St. Louis. Lloyd has suggested recently that he was interested in playing for the Patriots and...

Pierce: Ankle 'should be fine'

SACRAMENTO -- Paul Pierce left the Celtics 120-95 loss to the Kings game late in the fourth quarter with what the team called a mild ankle sprain. Pierce said he stepped on the foot of Kings' guard Marcus Thornton and "tweaked it."

"It’s a little sore, just twisted it a bit at the end," Pierce said. "Should be fine though."

Asked if he would be able to play on Saturday night against the Nuggets, Pierce said, "We’ll see how it feels. It’s just a little tweak. Hopefully it doesn’t swell up on the plane ride."

Pierce played 35 minutes against the Kings on Friday, scoring 19 while making 5-of-15 shots from the floor and converting all nine of his free throw attempts. He added three rebounds and two assists. He is averaging a team-high 18.4 points per night, and has played in all but two of the Celtics' games this year.

Pats were runner-up for Reggie Wayne

Wide receiver Reggie Wayne, in an entry on his website after re-signing with the Colts for a three-year, $17.5 million deal, offered a suggestion on his website that he considered crossing enemy lines to sign with the Patriots:

"It came down to [three] teams actually. Well..... kinda four teams at first. Then three and then two. And you Colts fans don't wanna know who other team was. I'll let you figure that one out. Ha!" Wayne wrote. "But like I said, I'm thrilled about my decision. [Now] I can continue and hopefully retire a Colt. I'm ready to start playing right now. The more I think about it, my decision to stay gets better as each hour goes by. GO COLTS!!!"

Pierce: 'Hopefully this is a wakeup call'

SACRAMENTO -- After giving up an astonishing 41 points in the third quarter during a 120-95 loss to the Kings, Paul Pierce called it a "good old fashioned butt whupping."

"We didn’t come out with the defensive attitude like we needed to," Pierce said. "It was in the first half and it really carried over to the second half. They pretty much got whatever they wanted. We gave up a 3, we gave up inside, we gave up outside, we gave up rebounding. Hopefully this is a wakeup call. We’re in the middle of a trip and we can bounce back tomorrow."

There's no rest for the Celtics who fly to Denver to play the Nuggets on Saturday night. They're now 2-2 on this eight-game road trip and Saturday's game has loomed large for a team that has struggled on the second night of back-to-backs on the road. 

"We just got to understand who we are," Pierce said. "We’re a defensive group. I think we...

Defenseless: C's no show against Kings

The lowly Kings scored 41 points in the third quarter while Marcus Thornton poured in a game-high 36 points helping Sacramento embarrass the Celtics, 120-95, Friday night at Arco Arena. The news got worse as Paul Pierce suffered an injured right ankle late in the fourth quarter, leaving with what the team termed a "mild right ankle sprain" with 6:24 left.  

Ray Allen led the Celtics with 26 points and Pierce added 19 but Rajon Rondo was off his game, scoring just four points while dishing out 12 assists. He and the Celtics were unable to handle the Kings backcourt, which got out in transition early and often.

The Celtics went on a 9-2 run to end the second quarter to close within one, 52-51, highlighted by Allen's 3-pointer. But Sacramento came out on an 18-1 run to start the third and outscored the Celtics, 41-23 in the third quarter. The 41 points is the most points allowed by Boston in any quarter this season. Thanks to 21 points...
