Daniels: Taped left wrist not an issue

WALTHAM  --  Marquis Daniels wore heavy tape on his left wrist on Tuesday at Celtics practice. "It's okay," Daniels said after the team's workout. "I just realized it after the Indiana game. I was like something doesn't feel right. You're going to get it hit out here. That's why I keep tape on it, to keep it protected." Daniels, who is averaging 6.3 points in 13 games, said it won't keep him from fulfilling his role as one of the first players off the bench when the team takes on Philadelphia on Wednesday night at TD Garden.

Perk: We need to start our run now

WALTHAM  --  One of the most consistent players on the Celtics so far says coach Doc Rivers wants to see more consistency as a team."I know Doc said starting from the last game that we want to try to make a run all the way up until our Christmas game," Kendrick Perkins said following Tuesday's practice. "We want to be on the right track. I know guys are locked in and focused right now. We've just got to stick together. It's not always going to be great times through the season all the time so we just have to stick together." The Celtics improved to 10-4 by surviving an overtime scare on Sunday in New York to beat the Knicks, 107-105, on Kevin Garnett's jumper at the buzzer. They play Philadelphia on Wednesday night at TD Garden. For more, visit the Green Street blog.

Pujols unanimous NL MVP winner

Cardinals star first baseman Albert Pujols won the 2009 National League Most Valuable Player Award. He received all 32 first-place votes, becoming the first unanimous winner since Barry Bonds in 2002. It is the third career MVP trophy for Pujols, who also won the award in both 2005 and 2008.
 
Pujols hit .327 with an N.L.-leading 47 homers. He drove in 135, and led the league in OBP (.443) and slugging (.658).
 
Pujols finished ahead of former Sox farmhand Hanley Ramirez. The Marlins shortstop -- whom the Sox dealt as part of the exchange that netted Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell after the 2005 season -- finished second on the strenght of an N.L.-leading .342 average; Ramirez also had a .410 OBP, .543 slugging, 24 homers, 106 RBIs and 27 steals.
