Celtics make Pavlovic signing official

The Celtics officially added Sasha Pavlovic to the roster, signing the free agent swingman. With Pavlovic on board the Celtics have the maximum 15 players on their roster. They still have room to maneuver with center Chris Johnson working on a 10-day contract. The 6-foot-8 Pavlovic has played in just 14 games this season, splitting his time between the Maveriks and Hornets. He offers insurance on the wing and playoff experience. He's likely to compete with Von Wafer for playing time behind Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Jeff Green.

Obama: I won't get involved in lockout

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday afternoon, President Barack Obama said he would not intervene in negotiations between NFL owners and players.

“You’ve got owners, most of whom are worth close to $1 billion. You’ve got players who are making millions are dollars. My working assumption at a time when people are having to cut back, compromise and worry about making the mortgage and paying for their kids’ college education is that the two parties should be able to work it out without the President of the United States intervening,” he said.

“I’m a big football fan, but I also think for an industry that is making $9 billion a year in revenue, they can figure out how to divide it up in a sensible way and be true to their fans who are the ones who, obviously, allow for all of the money that they are making,” he continued. “My expectation and hope is that they will resolve it...

Thornton: B's not focused on '72 comparisons
By: DJ Bean

As has been well-documented, the Bruins are coming off a perfect six-game road trip as they enter Thursday night's bout with the Lightning at TD Garden. Much attention has been placed on the fact that the last time the team won all six of such a road-trip was in the 1972 Stanley Cup-winning season. Veteran forward Shawn Thornton said he doesn't see the need to get caught up in such comparisons. 

 

"I don't look at it at all," Thornton said following Thursday's morning skate. "I honestly don't. It's purely a coincidence as far as I'm concerned." 

 

In facing the Lightning, the B's will see a team they are currently tied with in points (81). They hold the tiebreaker because less of their wins have come in the shootout, but the winner of Thursday's game will take over second place in the Eastern Conference. 

 

"We've got a six game thing going here, and it doesn...

Thomas to start for B's vs. Lightning
By: DJ Bean

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas was the first netminder off the ice in Thursday's morning skate, indicating that he will be in goal vs. the Lightning at TD Garden.

 

Thomas last started on Saturday, earning his 28th victory of the season in a 3-1 win over the Canucks. Tuukka Rask has started the Bruins' last two games, picking up wins over the Oilers and Senators.

 

Thomas, 28-8-6 on the season, leads the NHL with a 1.97 goals against average and a .939 save percentage.

Rivers: Green 'talented enough to be All-Star'

Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday, a day after a 115-103 Celtics win over the Suns. Rivers was asked if his players -- in particular the key veterans -- understand that this is now a better offensive team following last Thursday's trade that sent Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to Oklahoma City in exchange for Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic.

 

"I think they do," Rivers said. "I think our guys knew that from the beginning. Listen, everyone was upset. But we talked to our players -- at least three or four of them -- before we made that deal. And they all thought it was a good move, but they all knew it would hurt if we did it. And it did."

 

Green played 17 minutes in the win Wednesday night, scoring six points. Rivers cautions that Green is adjusting to a new system and a return to the small forward spot after playing out of position in Oklahoma City, but...
