Report: Pees in line to join Broncos

Dean Pees, who last week insisted he was not fired but rather chose not to return to the Patriots as defensive coordinator, is the lead candidate to be the defensive coordinator with the Broncos, according to a report in the Denver Post. Denver coach Josh McDaniels, a former Patriots assistant, recently parted ways with defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, who reportedly is headed to Miami. Meanwhile, Fox Sports is reporting that Chan Gailey likely will be the next head coach of the Bills. Check the It Is What It Is blog for updates as they become available.

Mashup: SD's Jackson had bad day

Prior to committing one of the season's stupidest penalties when he kicked the Jets' challenge flag late in the fourth quarter of his team's loss Sunday, Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson was stopped by police for playing music too loud, was put in handcuffs and had his car impounded on his way to the stadium. For more on that, plus links to the day's top stories, videos, trivia and more, check out Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

Sheed blasts 'bogus' foul calls

After the Celtics suffered a 99-90 loss to the Mavericks Monday night, Rasheed Wallace didn't hold back in expressing his frustration about a crucial fourth personal foul called on him with 5:16 remaining in the third quarter and Boston holding on to a 63-60 lead. With Wallace on the bench, Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks outscored Boston 15-5 to close out the third quarter.

 

"You know, they don't like no tough defense on him, so of course I get a whole lot of bull[crap] calls, but that's how the story goes," Wallace said. "I ain't worried about it. We'll see them again. Honestly, I can't remember which one the fourth foul was, there were so many bogus [calls]. I ain't worried about it. Like I said, we'll see again. We go down there in about a month or so. There'll be retribution."

 

Wallace and the Celtics will have their chance at payback on March 20 when the Celtics visit Dallas. For more, including...

Celtics get Dirked around in loss

Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 of his game-high 37 points in the second half as the Dallas Mavericks erased a nine-point halftime deficit and beat the Celtics, 99-90, on Monday night at TD Garden. Jason Kidd had a spectacular night passing the ball, registering 17 assists to go with 13 points for the Mavericks, who closed the third quarter on a 19-5 spurt to take control. The 27-12 Celtics are now just 11-7 at home and have lost three straight in Boston for the first time in three seasons. The Mavericks shot 57 percent from the floor, the best by a Boston opponent this season. Paul Pierce had 24 points to lead the Celtics. Ray Allen added 21 and Rajon Rondo had 12 assists for the C's, who play next in Detroit on Wednesday. For complete coverage, visit the Green Street blog

Doc didn't think Starbury 'was done'

Upon hearing the news Monday night that Stephon Marbury was continuing his professional basketball career in China, Doc Rivers said he still believes Marbury has some game left. "I did not think he was done, no. I thought he still had a lot of basketball left in him. I thought someone would pick him up last summer but I don't think the web broadcast helped his cause at all." Rivers added that Marbury and the Celtics ended their relationship at the right time at the end of the playoffs last season. For more on this, visit the Green Street blog.
