Celtics bounce back, beat New Jersey

One night after an uninspired loss in Toronto, the Celtics were able to shake off a sluggish first half and get a 94-82 win over New Jersey. Early on, it looked like a repeat performance for the C's who are in the middle of a three games in three nights stretch against the dregs of the Eastern Conference.

They trailed 28-22 after one quarter and were tied at the half, but a 26-13 third quarter sent them on their way. Rajon Rondo had seven of his 15 assists in the quarter and Avery Bradley scored 11 of his 18 points. Bradley made a career-high three 3-pointers and Rondo's streak of at least 10 assists has now reached 21 straight games.

Kevin Garnett (21 points, 12 rebounds) and Brandon Bass (18 points, 11 rebounds) each had double-doubles and Paul Pierce added 17 points and Greg Stiemsma had six points and nine rebounds off the bench.

Ray Allen missed his third straight game with a sore right ankle -- his ninth overall -- and won't play...

Julien: Caps 'outmuscled us' on game-winner

Bruins coach Claude Julien called out his team after a 2-1 loss in double-overtime that left the series with the Capitals knotted at a game apiece heading to Washington for Game 3 Monday night. 

Julien was not happy when his team won the draw early in the second overtime but lost the fight for the loose puck as Marcus Johansson outworked Johnny Boychuk and fed Nicklas Backstrom for the game-winner. He watched as the Capitals won battle after battle all game for the loose puck. 

"The proof is the overtime goal: We win the drop, they outmuscle us to the puck, and they get a second effort to make a pass in the right area, and they score a goal. So we lost that battle and we lost the game."

Julien also said Washington is doing a better job getting traffic in front of Thomas. 

"They’re putting pucks at the net, and they’re going to the net," Julien said. "Some of the other guys or lines...

Thomas: 'Better than down 0-2 like [2011]'

After allowing the game-winning goal in a gut-wrenching 2-1 loss in double-overtime, Bruins netminder Tim Thomas tried to put a positive spin on heading to Washington for Game 3 Monday night with the series tied, 1-1. 

"We're playing a pretty good defensive game," Thomas said. "We need to find ways to generate more offense without giving up anything defensively. It's better than down 2-0 like last year. You have to take whatever positives you can in cases like this."

Thomas is referring to the fact that the Bruins lost their first two games on home ice to the Canadiens before rebounding to win four of the next five, including overtime wins in Games 4, 5 and 7. 

Thomas has faced 46 shots in the first two games, making 44 saves. His counterpart - rookie Braden Holtby - has been even more spectacular, stopping 72 of 74 shots in the two overtime battles. 

"We're going to have to get some ugly goals...

Ortiz, Aviles pace Red Sox rout of Rays

The Red Sox hit five home runs on the way to their third win of the season, beating the Rays, 13-5, Saturday afternoon at Fenway Park. It completed yet another comeback for the Sox, who had fallen into a 4-0 hole after the first inning.

It was Mike Aviles' solo shot to lead off the seventh inning that gave the Sox the lead for good, with the new Red Sox' leadoff man clearing the left field wall against Rays' reliever Burke Badenhop. Aviles would finish with three hits out of the leadoff spot, seeing a combined 21 pitches in five at-bats.

Initially tying the game for the Red Sox was David Ortiz' first homer of the season, a two-run blast into the Red Sox' bullpen in right field in the fifth. The runs would be the final two given up by Tampa Bay starter Jeremy Hellickson, who lasted just five innings, throwing 99 pitches.

Ortiz finished with four hits and five RBI, boosting his batting average to .406.

Earning the win for the Red Sox...

Even up: Caps get OT winner, tie series

Nicklas Backstrom scored 2:56 into the second overtime to lift the Capitals to a 2-1 win over the Bruins in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series Saturday at TD Garden. The series is tied, 1-1, and shifts to Washington for Game 3 Monday night. Tim Thomas stopped 37-of-38 shots before allowing the game-winner from nearly the identical spot on the ice that Chris Kelly won Game 1 in overtime. Braden Holtby stopped 43-of-44 Bruins shots for his first NHL playoff win.

The series has been a defensive battle so far, with both teams fighting to a scoreless tie after one period. 

The Bruins had several chances in the second period, including two from close range in the slot from Patrice Bergeron. But the first was partially stopped by Holtby before it went through his legs before just missing the net. Then with under five minutes left in the period, Bergeron again had a point-blank chance but Holtby denied the Bruins top center....
