Doc: Rondo's the smartest I've coached

Celtics coach Doc Rivers had high praise for Rajon Rondo after the team's 85-82 win over Miami. "He’s the smartest player I’ve ever coached, maybe ever been around," Rivers said. "I’ve been around some pretty smart players, but he’s right there. To be that young and have that, that’s only going to get better. He sees things I don’t see and never would have been able to see."



 

Rivers credited Rondo with playing fullcourt defense on LeBron James, which changed the energy of the game. "That wasn’t a set gameplan for him to guard LeBron," Rivers said. "We just wanted ball pressure. Rondo took that upon himself. I thought that changed the game for us."

Pierce to have MRI on left foot

After missing all 10 shots from the field on Sunday, an ailing Paul Pierce said he will have an MRI on his aching left foot on Monday to determine the extent of the injury. Pierce also aggravated his sprained right hand, which he first injured Saturday in practice.

 

"I sprained my hand yesterday in practice, it got hit today and then just have to get my foot checked out tomorrow, going to get an MRI on it and go from there."

 

Asked when he injured it, Pierce said, "it happened about a week ago, actually."

 

Pierce, who missed Wednesday's practice home sick with flu-like symptoms, said he wasn't sick on Sunday. Pierce finished with just one point in 40 minutes of Boston's 85-82 win over Miami at TD Garden. For more visit the Celtics team page at weei.com/celtics and the...

Bruins assign Hamill to Providence
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced following Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Red Wings that they have assigned center Zach Hamill to Providence. Hamill played in three games since being recalled last week, picking up an assist on a Michael Ryder goal in Wednesday's 8-6 victory over the Canadiens.

 

Hamill did not play for the B's on Sunday. He was a healthy scratch in favor of rookie center Tyler Seguin. The eighth overall pick in the 2007 NHL draft, Hamill has 28 points (3 G, 25 A) in 44 games for the team's AHL affiliate this season.

Icy Hot: C's cool LeBron, Heat again

Rajon Rondo had a triple-double with 11 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists and Kevin Garnett added 19 points as the Celtics won for the third time in as many tries against LeBron James and the Heat, 85-82, Sunday afternoon at TD Garden. The Celtics, who scored just 11 points in the fourth quarter, reclaimed first in the Eastern Conference by a half-game over the Heat, improving to 39-14 while the Heat fell to 39-15. With a chance to tie the game, James missed the front end of a pair of free throws with 12.5 seconds remaining and Mike Miller missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer just before the buzzer. 

 

The Celtics had six players in double figures but captain Paul Pierce was not one of them. He missed all 10 shots and finished with just one point in 39 minutes. The Celtics shot just 30 percent in the opening quarter and 37 percent in the first half, and trailed 43-39 at the half. But Boston outscored Miami, 20-3, to open the...

Bruins drop second straight to Red Wings
By: DJ Bean

 The Bruins dropped a 4-2 decision to the Red Wings on Sunday and have now lost back-to-back games in regulation for the first time since Dec. 15 and 16, when they dropped contests to the Sabres and Canadiens in succession.

 

Todd Bertuzzi had two goals for the second straight game against the Bruins, with Pavel Datsyuk and Kris Draper also beating Tim Thomas. Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand provided the scoring for the B's.

 

Jimmy Howard, who played his college puck at Maine, improved his record to 28-10-3, giving him the most wins in the NHL. He made 23 saves on 25 shots.

 

Thomas on the other hand, saw his record fall to 26-7-6. Steven Kampfer, who grew up in Ann Arbor and played his college hockey at the University of Michigan, was a healthy scratch for the game.
