Tony Allen: 'I'm a Celtic'

Tony Allen -- who spent the first six seasons of his career in a Celtics uniform -- made his return to Boston Wednesday night, collecting eight points and seven rebounds to help Memphis pick up a 90-87 win, a loss that drops the Celtics a full game behind the Bulls in the Eastern Conference standings. 

 

“I’m a Celtic, but unfortunately, I wear a Grizzlies jersey right now,” said Allen, who was the only member of the Memphis starting five to receive a positive response from the Garden crowd during Wednesday night’s game. “It was a nice reaction. I liked it.”

 

Allen signed a three-year, $9.5 million deal with the Grizzlies this past offseason. The Celtics reportedly offered Allen two years and $5.2 million to remain in Boston.

 

“Yeah, it’s strange, but most importantly I was just happy about the victory and how our guys stuck together and focused for 48...

Doc on C's woes: 'It starts with Doc Rivers'

As the Celtics failed to execute their offense down the stretch of Wednesday's 90-87 loss to the Grizzlies, Celtics coach Doc Rivers laid the blame squarely at his own feet, not on Rajon Rondo, who was 2-for-12 from the field, and missed a runner in the lane late that would've given the Celtics the lead. 

 

"No, it starts with Doc Rivers," Rivers said. "Then, after that, it starts with the whole team." 

 

Rondo did have a spectacular game in assists, with 11, and rebounds, also with 11. But the Celtics were unable to get the ball to Paul Pierce in the final minute until Pierce heaved a desperation three-pointer that fell harmlessly off the rim, allowing the Grizzlies to escape with a 90-87 win, dropping the C's a full game behind the Bulls in the East.

 

“Probably a little bit more, but I play within the framework of the offense," Pierce said when asked if he got...

Pierce: C's need 'better sense of urgency'

Paul Pierce nearly made the three-pointer that would have sent Wednesday's game into overtime. Instead, it hit the rim and bounced away and the Celtics were left to ponder a 90-87 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies that left them a full game behind the Bulls for first in the Eastern Conference with 12 games remaining. To Pierce, the loss revealed that the Celtics have to do a better job of executing and finishing off games. 

 

“The light is at the end of the tunnel, only a few more games left," Pierce said. "It should be a better sense of urgency I believe around here, especially finishing off the season on a good note and trying to get that home court advantage in the East."

 

Before Pierce - who finished with a game-high 22 points - missed his shot, the Celtics had several chances to tie or take the lead but a Ray Allen turnover and pair of missed shots from Rajon Rondo and Glen Davis allowed the...

Ka-Powe: Leon does in C's in Grizzly win

Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 22 points but missed a desperate three-pointer at the buzzer as the Grizzlies survived on the road with a 90-87 win over the Celtics Wednesday night at TD Garden. The loss dropped the Celtics to 50-20, a full game behind the Bulls in the Eastern Conference. Rajon Rondo also missed a runner in the lane with 20 seconds remaining that would have given the Celtics the lead and Glen Davis missed a desperate three-point attempt with 10 seconds remaining as the Celtics had several chances to tie or take the lead in the final 30 seconds. 

 

The game marked the return of Tony Allen and Leon Powe to Boston and both had their moments. Powe was the leading scorer at halftime with nine points and finished with 13, tied with Zach Randolph for high scorer on Memphis. Allen, who celebrated on the court after Pierce's three-pointer missed the mark, finished with eight points. The Grizzlies jumped out to a 10-point...

BC's Castonzo faces 'tough' draft decision

Boston College offensive lineman Anthony Castonzo is expected to be one of the top tackles taken in this year’s NFL draft, possibly in the upper levels of the first round. But it sounds like he hasn’t made his decision quite yet on what to do if he gets an invitation to attend the proceedings in New York. With the National Football League Players' Association reportedly pressuring rookies into skipping this year’s draft proceedings, Castonzo sounds genuinely unsure about what he might do if he gets an invitation to Radio City Music Hall.

“It would kind of have to be a tough decision to make,” he said after working out at BC’s Pro Day under the practice bubble at Alumni Stadium on Wednesday. “You obviously don’t want to walk into a locker room the first day and have everybody who is part of the players’ association [and] be that one guy who decided to go against them.”
