Celtics will play at Knicks on Christmas

The NBA lockout is in its 19th day, but the league released its schedule for the 2011-12 season. The date of release is a little earlier than in past years because typically the NBA took player movement into account before setting the schedule for its marquee matchups. Assuming there is a season, these are some of the highlights of the Celtics' schedule.

As they have for the last three seasons, the Celtics will be part of the annual Christmas Day marathon with a noon date at Madison Square Garden to take on the Knicks. The Celtics have been in Orlando the last two seasons. They will have a primetime game at home against Oklahoma City on Martin Luther King Day, another showcase day for the league.

The Celtics make only one trip to Miami on Nov. 16 and then host a pair of games with them on Dec. 1 and April 1. They host the Lakers on Feb. 9 on a TNT Thursday night game and visit Los Angeles for a 3:30 Sunday game on March 11. They open the season...

Report: Mankins seeks free agency or money

According to Yahoo! Sports, both Patriots guard Logan Mankins and Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson are seeking either the right to become free agents or be paid $10 million upon the resolution of the current lockout. Such a deal would be part of reaching a comprise in the Brady v. the NFL lawsuit, which includes Mankins and Jackson.

Both players sat out the majority of the 2010 season after they failed to reach long-term deals with their respective teams. Mankins and Jackson were both designated with the "franchise" tag prior to last season.

"They’re asking for something they believe – and I think most people would believe – is fair compensation for what they’ve had to go through," an NFL Players Association source told Yahoo! Sports. "My guess would be that the owners or the league will pay them."

Mashup: Steeler's tweets lead to lawsuit

Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall came under fire in May after sending messages on Twitter criticizing Americans for celebrating the death of Osama bin Laden and insisting there's no evidence bin Laden was behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. As part of the fallout, athletic clothing company Champion canceled a sponsorship deal. Now, Mendenhall is suing the company, according to Pittsburgh's KDKA-TV.

Marchand: 'We'll get something done'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Brad Marchand said at the team's Championship DVD premier Monday that he is confident that a deal will soon be reached to keep the 23-year-old in Boston. A restricted free agent, Marchand was extended a qualifying offer by the B's, meaning the Bruins have the right to match any offer sheet the forward could be signed to by another club. 

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has noted he will not issue constant updates on the progress of negotiations, but Marchand expressed optimism.

"They know I want to be back here, and they want me back," Marchand said, "so we'll get something done." 

Marchand pointed to the hoopla of the Stanley Cup celebration as a reason as to why he has yet to put ink on paper. He noted that he has not been involved in the negotiations, and that his agent, Wade Arnott, has handled things. 

"It's obviously been a very busy time for everyone with the...

Pedroia propels Sox to win over O's

BALTIMORE -- For the second time in less than 24 hours, Dustin Pedroia apparently had enough. Roughly 20 hours after he delivered a game-winning single in the top of the 16th inning to give the Red Sox a 1-0 win in Tampa Bay, Pedroia stepped to the plate in the top of the eighth of a 7-7 game against the Orioles and lined a two-run double to right field that gave the Sox a 9-7 lead. His knock was the start of an eight-run eighth-inning eruption by the Sox in a 15-10 victory in Baltimore.

Pedroia extended his hitting streak to 16 games, going 2-for-5 while driving in three. He delivered the key blow in a balanced Red Sox attack that featured six players who collected multiple hits, including Jacoby Ellsbury (3-for-4), Kevin Youkilis (2-for-6, 3 RBI), Jarrod Saltalamacchia (2-for-5, HR) and, in his first game since June 17, Carl Crawford (2-for-5).

The offensive explosion allowed the Sox to win on a night when Tim Wakefield was able to last just 4...
