Donovan's stoppage time goal lifts U.S.

Landon Donovan scored in the first minute of stoppage time to give the United States a dramatic 1-0 victory over Algeria Wednesday and catapult the Americans into the knockout round of the World Cup. Seconds after U.S. goalie Tim Howard made a save on an Algerian header, the Americans embarked on a breakout. Donovan pounced on the rebound of a saved shot a few feet in front of the goal and pounded it home to start the U.S. celebration. With England beating Slovakia 1-0, the United States needed to beat Algeria or it would have been eliminated from the tournament.

U.S. again robbed of goal in World Cup

Controversial refereeing reared its ugly head in the United States' World Cup action again Wednesday. In the 19th minute, the Americans appeared to take a 1-0 lead over Algeria on a rebound goal by Clint Dempsey. However, the goal was waved off due to offsides, keeping the game scoreless. Replays indicated Dempsey was even with the final Algerian defender and the goal should have been allowed.

NBA's No. 19 pick hardly a sure thing

With the Celtics holding the 19th pick in Thursday's NBA draft, we decided to take a look at No. 19 picks over the past 25 years. It isn't an impressive list, unless you are OK with the likes of Hakim Warrick, Jamaal Magloire and Rod Strickland. Grizzlies big man Zach Randolph did put things together this past season, nine years after he was taken 19th by the Trail Blazers. No. 19 picks who have played for the Celtics include Acie Earl, Dee Brown, Walter McCarty and Scot Pollard. Check out the entire list at the Green Street blog.
