In a story in today's Boston Herald, Celtics guard Rajon Rondo indicated that there are some issues that are hurting the team. "I think it’s a little bit of different agendas maybe creeping in," Rondo told the Herald's Steve Bulpett. "It just all depends. You know, I think if we all had the right spirit as far as one goal, one thing in common, I think we’d be a lot better.”
Added Rondo: “I can’t really elaborate on it too much, but I think we’ve just got to be a team with no agendas. We’ve got to play unselfish, you know? That’s on defense and offense.

BOSTON -- Brooks Laich and Boyd Gordon scored less than three minutes apart midway through the third period to lead the Washington Capitals over the Bruins, 4-1, Tuesday night at TD Garden. It was the eighth straight loss for the Bruins, their longest losing skid in 54 seasons, when the team dropped eight in a row between Dec. 22, 1955-Jan. 12, 1956. It was also their seventh straight home loss, the longest since dropping 11 in a row Dec. 1924-Feb. 1925. David Krejci's 10th of the season on the power play gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead in the first period. But former Bruin Mike Knuble led the comeback with the equalizer in the second. Alex Ovechkin capped off the scoring with an empty net goal. The Capitals, meanwhile, are streaking in the other direction. They set a new franchise record with their 11th straight win, the longest in the NHL since San Jose won 11 in a row two seasons ago. For more, visit the...
Paul Pierce suffered a strained left mid-foot and is listed as day-to-day, the team announced Tuesday night. Pierce was injured during Monday's game against the Wizards when Caron Butler landed on his foot fighting for a loose ball. While NBA.com originally reported that Pierce may have broken his foot, the Celtics' announcement is a positive note for the team that has battled with injuries the entire season. Pierce leads the team in scoring with 18.9 points per game and ranks third on the C's shooting a career-high 46.7 percent from 3-point range.
An NBA source has told TNT analyst David Alridge that Paul Pierce may have a broken left foot and could miss a "significant" amount of time. According to Aldridge, the team doesn't know for sure if the foot is broken, having X-rayed the All-Star Tuesday. Pierce suffered the injury Monday night when he was tangled with Washington's Caron Butler, saying after the game he didn't believe the injury was serious.
