Doc on D&C: 'I love our chances'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning and continued to be an optimist about his team. "We're starting to get it back," he said. "If we can get it back in time ... I love our chances."

 

Rivers was asked about his recent comments that the Celtics are close to getting back to form after their midseason struggles, and he was asked if he meant that the C's could contend for a championship. "Yeah, I really see that," Rivers said. "Listen, this is the same team that was 25-5. And I don't lose sight of that. I'll let everybody else loses sight of that, but I haven't. I know we can reach back to that level. ... Everyone forgets conveniently, the stretch that we struggled in, we were not right. We were not the same team. Now we're healthy. We've added pieces. Nate [Robinson] is going to help us. Mike Finley is going to help us. Like I told out team, we'...

Brickley: 'Long night for Matt Cooke'

Andy Brickley, NESN analyst for Bruins games, checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show to talk about Thursday's night's game between the B's and the Penguins. Brickley said he has no doubt the Bruins will seek revenge on Penguin Matt Cooke for his hit on B's center Marc Savard. "No question [the Bruins] need the points, given the situation that they're in in the Eastern Conference, but that will be secondary tonight," Brickley said. "This is an opportunity for the Bruins to respond, something they didn't do at the time when Savard was hit by Matt Cooke, and they will take every opportunity to make sure their character is no longer in question."

 

Brickley said he expects both teams will be eager for the confrontation to take place as soon as possible. "If I was Danny Bylsma, the coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins, I would make sure Matt Cooke starts tonight. Don't give it a chance to continue to percolate. Wait for...

Brady passes on Foxboro for LA

There’s been a Tom Brady sighting.

 

While his teammates were engaged in the first week of offseason workouts in Foxboro, paparazzi spotted the quarterback yesterday working out on the campus of UCLA. By the looks of this photo slideshow, it was a relatively solitary, low-impact workout, with only a dog to keep him company.

 

While Brady was big earlier in his career about working out in Foxboro over the course of the offseason — securing the best parking spot had been a big point of pride with him — the quarterback is doing more and more of his offseason conditioning away from Gillette Stadium. For example, he held workouts with Arizona quarterback Matt Leinart in California last spring.

 

For their part, his teammates sound relatively nonplussed Brady is not...

Slideshow: Beltre's first Sox web gem

FORT MYERS, Fla. — On Wednesday, Adrian Beltre flashed what he described as his favorite play for the first time as a member of the Red Sox. On a comebacker that kicked off the foot of starting pitcher John Lackey, Beltre raced toward the mound, barehanded the ball and, while falling to his right, generated incredible power on a throw to first to clip Alex Cora.

 

“That’s probably my favorite play. I love to make those plays, especially when it’s supposed to be a base hit,” he said. “It’s always nice to know that I can still do that. I hadn’t done it this year yet.”
