Cruise control: C's blow by Wizards

Paul Pierce led all five Celtics starters in double figures with 23 points while Rajon Rondo added 12 points and 13 assists as the C's routed the Wizards, 114-83, Wednesday night at TD Garden. 

 

Shaquille O'Neal missed just one of his seven shots from the floor and had one of his most effective games yet with 13 points and six rebounds in 22 minutes as the Celtics outscored the Wizards 56-28 in the paint. The Celtics led just 41-38 with 5:30 left in the second quarter before going on a 12-0 run en route to building a 60-44 halftime lead.

Delonte West entered the game for Ray Allen with 3:12 left in the first quarter, marking his first appearance in a Celtics uniform since the 2006-07 season. He sat out the first 10 games serving an NBA-mandated suspension for off-the-court indiscretions. His first...

Brady 'doing well' after missing practice

FOXBORO — Despite the fact that he missed practice Wednesday because of injury, quarterback Tom Brady expressed confidence that he’ll be good to go for this Sunday’s game against the Colts at Gillette Stadium.

After he missed his second consecutive Wednesday practice with what was described on the injury report as “right shoulder/foot,” Brady spoke to reporters on a national conference call. He was asked, “You were not seen in the media portion of practice today. Can you talk about how you’ve been doing lately and how you’re feeling?”

“I’m doing well. I’m doing well,” Brady responded. “I’m looking forward to the game this weekend.”

Brady missed practice last Wednesday and was limited in the days leading up to the Sunday night game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh because of the same reported injury. In that contest, he...

Russell to receive Medal of Freedom

On Wednesday, President Barack Obama named fifteen recipients of the 2010 Medal of Freedom. It is the nation's highest civilian honor and is, according to the White House press release, "presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."

 

One of the 2010 recipients is Celtics legend Bill Russell. Here is the official White House announcement:

 

Bill Russell is the former Boston Celtics’ Captain who almost single-handedly redefined the game of basketball. Russell led the Celtics to a virtually unparalleled string of eleven championships in thirteen years and was named the NBA’s Most Valuable Player five times. The first African American to coach in the NBA—indeed he was the first to coach a major sport at the professional...

Source: Upton interests Sox, nothing close

According to a major league source, there is "nothing even close" in talks between the Red Sox and Diamondbacks regarding a potential trade to send 23-year-old outfielder Justin Upton from Arizona to Boston.

 

The Diamondbacks have made it known that they are open to listening to proposals on any player, including the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft. While Upton is viewed as a potential cornerstone player, Arizona may try to use him to accelerate its rebuiliding process by procuring a wealth of talented young players. The Red Sox, according to the source, have "interest" in acquiring Upton, who hit .273 with a .356 OBP, .443 slugging mark, .799 OPS, 17 homers and 18 steals for Arizona in 133 games last year, a season in which he missed most of the final month due to a labrum strain in his shoulder.
