CLEVELAND — Here is some of the reaction from the Red Sox after they fell to 0-4 thanks to a 3-1 loss to the Indians Tuesday night at Progressive Field:
JOSH BECKETT: “There’s too much history here. Everybody here knows how to win. We’ve got to figure it out. Nobody is going to come out of the blue and feel sorry for us and help us out. We know what we’ve got to do. We’ve got to go out and execute.”
DAVID ORTIZ: “Everybody’s trying, dog. Everybody’s trying hard. All it’s going to take is one click, man. Just one click. That’s what turns things around.”
“When you’re facing this kind of situation, you definitely want to get the first one out of the way. And keep on moving. That’s how things get started. Everyone’s trying. Probably some of us are trying a little too hard, but that’s baseball. Things...
After scoring 16 points and dishing out 13 assists in a 99-82 win over the Sixers Tuesday night at TD Garden, Rajon Rondo said the Celtics made a statement by shutting down the team they may face in the opening round of the playoffs.
“Tonight was a good test for us," Rondo said. "That might be a first-round team and we did a good job of making a little statement that it’s going to be hard to beat us in a seven-game series."
The Celtics trailed by two after one as Rondo's counterpart -- Jrue Holiday -- had 11 points in the first quarter. Holiday was held scoreless the rest of the game. Now, the 54-23 Celtics prepare for the 57-20 Bulls in Chicago Thursday night with a chance to draw within two games of the Eastern Conference leaders.
"It’s a different game versus Chicago and Miami," Rondo added. "Obviously, the intensity will be a lot greater, but in the playoffs, the first round, there...
CLEVELAND -- The Red Sox' struggles continued despite changing venues, as they dropped a 3-1 decision to the Indians Tuesday night before an announced crowd of 9,025 at Progressive Field.
Josh Beckett took the loss for the Red Sox, giving up three runs over five innings. The Sox starter struck out four, walked four and threw 106 pitches. Beckett allowed two runs in the fourth inning on RBI hits by Orlando Cabrera and Jack Hannahan, before giving up a single run in the fifth when Carlos Santana notched a sacrifice fly.
The Red Sox stranded the tying run at first base in the ninth inning when David Ortiz flew out to left field against Cleveland closer Chris Perez.
The Sox, who managed just four baserunners after the fourth inning, finished with only four hits. Their only offense came in the second inning when Jarrod Saltalamacchia plated Ortiz with an opposite-field single, coming off a Josh Tomlin 0-2 pitch. The visitors' attempt at adding...
Rajon Rondo had 16 points, 13 assists and a buzzer-beating layup that electrified the TD Garden crowd, helping the Celtics beat the 76ers, 99-82, Tuesday night. Paul Pierce had a team-high 18 points for the Celtics, who moved into a second-place tie with the Heat in the Eastern Conference.
The young and athletic Sixers shot out to a 26-24 lead after one as second-year point guard Jrue Holiday scored 11 of his team's 26 points. Holiday failed to scored the rest of the way, however, and finished with 11. First-round pick Evan Turner led the Sixers off the bench with a game-high 21.
Rondo's best play of the night was his layup just beating the third-quarter buzzer as he took a loose ball following an Andre Iguodala missed free throw with 4.2 seconds left in the quarter and let the ball go just before the red light went on. The Celtics turned up the defensive intensity on the Sixers in the second half, holding Philadelphia scoreless in the...
Nenad Krstic made his return to the Celtics lineup Tuesday night after missing the last two games with a bruised knee. He said that he's not 100 percent and still a little sore, but that it's feeling better each day. Still, the pain and discomfort will linger. "The doctor said I'm going to feel it for [about] three weeks," Krstic said before the game.
Krstic will come off the bench and Jermaine O'Neal will start for the second straight game. That could be a permanent move. "JO’s playing well," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "That’s probably where Krstic will come off during the playoffs, so put him there now and let him get used to that and that role."
