Welker: I'm 'completely happy' with situation

PEABODY -- After saying that things had “gotten worse” in his contract talks with the Patriots, Wes Welker appeared to change his tune Saturday morning, saying that was a “probably a bad choice of words,” and adding that he’s “completely happy” with his situation.

“That was probably a bad choice of words, saying they had gotten worse,” the wide receiver said during a break at his football camp Saturday morning at Bishop Fenwick High. “They’ve stayed the same. I’m franchised for the year, and I’m completely happy with that. I’m completely OK with it. I look forward to contributing to the team in 2012.

“I’m excited to be back. I’m excited to be a Patriot. I’m excited to be out there on the field coming up with OTA’s and minicamps with my teammates. I’m looking forward to the 2012 season and us going out there and getting...

Iguodala: 'They gave us their best shot'

PHILADELPHIA -- Andre Iguodala was sensational down the stretch for the Sixers, hitting a pair of key 3-pointers to help lead the Sixers past the Celtics, 92-83, wiping out an 18-point second-half deficit and evening the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series at 2-2. With the Sixers desperately needing a basket, Iguodala nailed a three to tie the game, 79-79. His jumper with 1:22 left, gave the Sixers the lead for good, 85-83 and his three with 36.9 seconds remaining sealed one of the biggest comebacks in Sixers playoff history. 

Iguodala said he and his teammates didn't give up hope despite falling behind 14-0 to start the game and getting booed off their own court by their fans when they fell behind by 15 at halftime.

"I feel like they gave us their best shot in the first half, but we crawled back in and got it," Iguodala said after his 16 points helped the Sixers even the series. "But we’re going to keep...

Rivers: 'The free throw line tells the story'

PHILADELPHIA -- After the Celtics blew an 18-point second-half lead in a 92-83 loss to Philadelphia in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference playoff series, there were many areas to blame. They turned it over 17 times and allowed 17 offensive rebounds. They also gave up 36 free throws and the Sixers had a 30-12 advantage at the line after three quarters.

"The free throw line tells the story," Rivers said. "Thirty six attempts to nineteen. That’s tough to win that way. Everything we did was the prescription that you don’t do to beat them. 17-5 offensive rebounds, 17 turnovers, 36 free throws. You would have thought that we were down the whole game if you looked at those numbers, yet we had the lead."

The Celtics were whistled for four fouls in the first three minutes and five seconds of the third quarter as Avery Bradley, Brandon Bass and Rajon all wound up in foul trouble. Kevin Garnett and Ryan Hollins were also...

Papelbon: 'Valentine can't distract Cinco'

PHILADELPHIA -- After picking up his 12th save of the season by pitching a scoreless ninth inning in the Red Sox' 6-4 loss to the Phillies, Friday night at Citizens Bank Park, Jonathan Papelbon said that the delay experienced when Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine argued (and was subsequently ejected on) didn't throw him off his game.

"Valentine can't distract Cinco, man. ... He's got ice in his veins," said Papelbon, referencing his alter ego, "Cinco Ocho." "It ain't no thing, man."

Valentine came out to argue a play at first in which Marlon Byrd was ruled out on a ground ball to third base in which the Sox' manager believed Phillies first baseman Ty Wigginton came off the bag when reaching to grab the throw.

After suffering his 38th career ejection, Valentine left the field pointing at first base umpire Gary Darling, whom it appeared might have made contact with the manager. But replays showed Darling was...

Collapse: C's blow 18-point lead, lose

PHILADELPHIA -- In an epic second-half collapse, the Celtics let a chance to take a stranglehold of the series slip through their hands in a 92-83 loss to the Sixers Friday night in Game 4 at Wells Fargo Center. Andre Iguodala hit a key 3-pointer with 35 seconds remaining to cap a huge Philadelphia second-half comeback that had them erase an 18-point deficit. 

Paul Pierce had 24 points for the Celtics, who now find themselves tied, 2-2, in the best of seven Eastern Conference semifinal series. Game 5 is Monday back in Boston. 

Like Game 2, the Celtics came out blazing hot, racing out to a 14-0 lead in the opening four minutes. The Celtics made their five shots while the Sixers missed their first four shots. Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley had two rebounds apiece as the Celtics would build their lead to 15 four times in the first quarter and lead, 24-12, after 12 minutes. 

Brandon Bass was a beast in the opening quarter, scoring...
