Appearing at Celtics teammate Rajon Rondo's Boston Charity Classic on the Harvard University campus on Saturday night, C's captain Paul Pierce said he's "been thinking about" playing overseas in Italy or elsewhere and "that's definitely a strong possibility" if the NBA lockout continues into December.
"I love the game of basketball," said Pierce, who arrived half an hour late to the event and left midway through the second half. "It's a shame I'm sitting at home not playing, so it's crossed my mind. Maybe I'll think about it around mid-December if I can see that there is no future of the league starting this year, then that's definitely a strong possibility."
Of course, Pierce played a leadership role in the National Basketball Players Association's collective bargaining efforts with the league's owners, but he downplayed his role in Monday's disbanding of the union, saying the move surprised him. While the C...
Tim Thomas picked up his second shutout of the season as the Bruins extended their win streak to eight games with a 6-0 victory over the Islanders Saturday night at Nassau Coliseum.
Chris Kelly scored twice for the Bruins, who also received scoring from Patrice Bergeron, Nathan Horton Andrew Ference and Zdeno Chara. Both Horton and Ference's goals came on the man advantage. Kelly picked up a secondary assist on Ference's goal, giving the third-line center his first regular-season three-point game as a member of the Bruins.
While Thomas was able to pick up a shutout in a fairly easy contest, nothing remotely similar could be said for Islanders netminder Rick DiPietro. The Boston University product was yanked after allowing three first-period goals,with Anders Nilsson playing the final two periods.
The Bruins will next play Monday, when they face the Canadiens at Bell Centre.

One woman was killed and two others injured when a U-Haul truck sped through a parking lot into a crowd of tailgaters Saturday before the Harvard-Yale football game in New Haven, authorities said. According to reports, a police spokesman said the truck entered a parking area designated for pre-game tailgating, but quickly sped up for unknown reasons and hit the women. The truck then crashed into other U-Haul vans in the lot. A 30-year-old Massachusetts woman was taken to Yale-New Haven hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The driver of the truck was taken into custody.
FOXBORO -- After reportedly separating his right shoulder in Sunday night's win over the Jets and missing the first three days of practice this week, cornerback Devin McCourty returned to Patriots practice on Saturday morning inside Gillette Stadium.
McCourty was injured in the second quarter Sunday night when safety Sterling Moore ran into him. McCourty left grabbing his right shoulder and did not return. His return to practice - which was held in sweats and shells for a third straight day - does not necessarily mean he will play Monday night. Jerod Mayo returned to practice in the days before the game with the Cowboys but didn't return to game action until after the bye week against the Steelers.
Missing for the fourth straight day were linebackers Dane Fletcher (thumb), Brandon Spikes (knee) and Jeff Tarpinian (illness).
The team will hold a walk-through on Sunday before taking on the Chiefs Monday night at...
