Duke holds off pesky BC

CHESTNUT HILL — Nolan Smith and Jon Scheyer each scored 21 points and Duke made use of its size advantage to hold off Boston College, 66-63, Saturday afternoon at Conte Forum. The Eagles trailed by 10 points with less than four minutes to play but chipped away and got as close as one point at 64-63 with 15 seconds left after a long 3-pointer from the top by Reggie Jackson. After Scheyer nailed a pair of free throws for a three-point lead, BC had a final chance to tie, but Joe Trapani's rushed 3-pointer hit the outside of the rim and bounced away at the buzzer. Corey Raji led BC with 15 points and eight rebounds. BC, which fell to 12-11 overall and 3-6 in the ACC, next plays at Wake Forest Tuesday night. Duke is 19-4 overall and leads the ACC with a 7-2 mark, with a battle looming Wednesday night at North Carolina.

B's again blow lead, game

Pavol Demitra scored the clinching goal of the shootout as the Vancouver Canucks claimed a 3-2 OT win on Saturday afternoon at TD Garden, sending the Bruins to their 10th straight loss. The streak is now just one shy of the team's all-time mark set in the 1924-25 season. With the Bruins holding onto a 2-1 lead, Demitra scored with just over four minutes left in regulation to tie the game and force overtime. Zdeno Chara and Michael Ryder scored power play goals to stake the Bruins to a 2-0 lead.

 

The Bruins recorded 43 shots on goal, reaching the 40-shot plateau for the third straight game. They have 132 shots in their last three games and just five goals. The Bruins also extended their home losing streak to nine and haven't won in Boston since beating Philadelphia on New Year's Day in the Winter Classic at Fenway Park. The Bruins play Sunday in Montreal in the first of four road games before the two-week Olympic break. The Bruins don't...

Boychuk takes puck to face, injured

Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk was bloodied and had to be helped off the ice by teammates Blake Wheeler and Zdeno Chara after taking a puck to the face midway through the first period of Saturday's game against Vancouver. Mikael Samuelsson took the shot from the left point with just over 11 minutes remaining in the first and the puck caught Boychuk in the left temple area. The Bruins announced midway through the second period that Boychuk would not return. For more, visit the Big Bad Blog

Cutting the Nets late: C's win

In a game that was far closer than most expected, the Celtics outscored the Nets by 10 in the fourth quarter and held on for a 96-87 win over the hapless New Jersey Nets on Friday night at TD Garden. The game wasn't comfortable until Ray Allen, who finished with a game-high 26, drilled a 3-pointer with 2:00 remaining that put that Celtics up, 93-84. The 4-45 Nets led, 73-72, going into the fourth quarter before the Celtics pulled away. Once again, Eddie House was at the center of the team's push in the final 12 minutes. He scored all 10 of his points in the fourth as the Celtics won their third straight after a three-game skid. Rajon Rondo added 17 points and 11 assists as the Celtics improved to 32-16. Brook Lopez had 19 for the Nets, who had all five starters in double figures but matched the worst 49-game start in the NBA since the 1992-93 Dallas Mavericks. The Celtics wrap up their three-game homestand on Sunday when they host the Orlando Magic at TD...

Pierce, Daniels uncertain for Sunday

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Paul Pierce continued his cardio workout on Friday but is still unsure whether the team's captain will be able to return on Sunday for the showdown with the Orlando Magic at TD Garden. "It's day-to-day," Rivers said of Pierce's left mid-foot strain. "That's about it, really. He's moving around, shooting around a little bit. I don't know yet." Marquis Daniels, meanwhile, will practice again on Saturday but Rivers said there's still no guarantee he'll be ready to play against Orlando. For more, visit the Green Street blog.
