Mashup: Browns want LeBron

Maligned coach Eric Mangini says the Cleveland Browns welcome NBA star LeBron James anytime he wants to try football. What's he got to lose? Meanwhile, they're irate in Ireland after France eliminated the Irish from the World Cup on a goal that should have been disallowed by a hand ball. We've got the video of the controversial play. We also have videos of a memorable hockey goal celebration and a college basketball coach stunned by a reporter's question, plus links to the day's top stories, trivia and more at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Edwards: Pats will be motivated

ESPN analyst Herm Edwards spoke with Dennis & Callahan on Thursday morning to talk about fourth-and-2 and other NFL news.

 

"It's a tough call. Obviously, probably 31 other teams punt the football in that situation," Edwards said. "Bill has made a lot of great decisions. Obviously, you make one like that, and all the ones you've made that have won games for you and won playoff games for you, everyone forgets that. That's the deal about being a head coach. Every situation you make that doesn't work out, you're going to have to answer for it. But the good thing about it is it's really going to bring their team together, knowing that team. Bill really doesn't have to motivate his team this week. I think everyone in the nation has already motivated that football team, especially if you're on the defensive side."

Celts rediscover winning ways

Rajon Rondo had 12 points in a key third-quarter spurt and finished with 18 points and 12 assists as the Celtics pulled away from the Golden State Warriors, 109-95, at TD Garden on Wednesday night. Paul Pierce finished with a team-high 19 and passed Isiah Thomas for 48th on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Rondo also hit a 3-pointer near the end of the third quarter that helped put the Celtics up, 80-67. Rondo also ended his free-throw futility streak in the third when he converted at the end of a three-point play, ending a string of 10 straight misses, three shy of the NBA record. The Celtics, who led only 49-48 at halftime, snapped their two-game skid and improved to 9-3 on the season. Golden State (3-8) was led by Corey Maggette with a game-high 23.

Pierce a go for Warriors

An hour before tip-off, Celtics coach Doc Rivers confirmed that Paul Pierce would be ready to go and in the starting lineup against the Golden State Warriors at TD Garden. Pierce suffered a slightly sprained left knee in the loss to Atlanta on Friday night. Rivers admitted on Monday that he shouldn't have played Pierce in the loss in Indiana on Saturday. Pierce practice on Tuesday and declared himself ready. The Celtics have had the same starting five of Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Kendrick Perkins, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo in all 12 games this season. The Celtics will be looking to snap a two-game losing skid.

Possible 7-year deal for B's Savard

Reports are developing that the Bruins are close to locking center Marc Savard into a seven-year contract extension. Savard, 32, signed a four-year $20 million deal in July 2006 and could become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. He has led the Bruins in scoring in each of his first three seasons with the team. Savard is set to return to the lineup shortly, possibly in a contest at Atlanta tomorrow, after breaking a bone in his left foot Oct. 17. Prior to the injury he had seven points (4 goals, 3 assists) in seven early season games.
