Jon Barry: 'Celtics have to be worried'

Jon Barry, who serves as an NBA analyst on ESPN and ABC, joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the Celtics-Knicks series. Barry said he was "surprised" that the Knicks have been so competitive in the first two games, and suggested the Knicks were just a few plays away from actually be up 2-0 in the series.

"I didn't see that, certainly in Game 2 when you have no Billups and Stoudemire for the better part of that game," said Barry. "I don't know what's going on, I think the Celtics have to worried. They are not playing very well. I see them defensively, and it looks like they are giving the Knicks too much respect. I see them doing them doing things on the defensive end that I've never seen them do before, Big Baby running around like a chicken with his head cut off, trying to double this guy and that guy. They just seem to be doing things that are not things that they've normally...

Mashup: Glavine wants to buy Thrashers

Former Braves pitcher Tom Glavine has shown interest in forming an investment group to purchase the Thrashers. The Billerica native was a standout prep hockey player who was drafted by the Kings but chose a career in baseball instead. Now, he wants to keep hockey in Atlanta, despite the fact that the Thrashers are one of the league's least valuable teams.

Kraft: No football would be 'criminal'

Patriots owner Robert Kraft sounded an optimistic note about the state of pro football on Wednesday. Speaking with CSNNE.com, Kraft said it would be “criminal” if football isn’t played on Sunday’s at Gillette Stadium this fall, but added that everyone was trying to make a new deal work.

“I promise I will do everything I can do,” Kraft said. “It would really be criminal if we don’t have football here on Sundays. ... I know [commissioner Roger Goodell] and [NFL general counsel] Jeff Pash and our whole team are doing everything they can do to continue negotiations. We’ve got to negotiate, not litigate. We should have a deal. There’s a deal ready to be done where we can play football in the fall. You saw our schedule come out [Tuesday]. We’re excited about that and now we have to find a way to get the players back in.”

Starting to jell: Sox beat A's, 5-3

The Red Sox starting staff, which was statistically the worst in baseball through the first two weeks of the season, is now on a run unlike any seen by the time in more than 60 years. Clay Buchholz allowed one run in 5 1/3 innings, marking the fifth straight start by the team of at least five innings and one or fewer runs, as the Sox beat the A's, 5-3, to split a two-game series in Oakland.

Sox starters are 4-0 with a 1.15 ERA in their last turn of the rotation. The current run marks the first time since 1947 that a Red Sox team has had five straight starts of at least five innings and no more than one run allowed in the same season.

Buchholz (1-2) allowed a solo homer to Coco Crisp on his first pitch of the game, but then permitted no further damage, holding the A's 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position on a day when he struggled with his command to earn his first win of the year. He left with the bases loaded and one out, but Daniel Bard came...
