Van Gundy: 'That was an absolute beatdown'

Magic coach Stan Van Gundy didn't mince words after his team set a franchise low for points in a game and tied a Celtics record for fewest field goals allowed with 16.

"It's the first game in my career that I've been through where literally not one guy had played well," Van Gundy said. "There's no finger pointing. I'm foremost among them. I'm not calling out my team, I couldn't find anything for us to do. That was an absolute beatdown and it was actually in a lot of ways a lot worse than the score indicated."

Boston took a 10-point lead into halftime, and never looked back. The Celtics held the Magic to only 20 second-half points and just five field goals.

"That's the most dominating defensive performance, at least, I've ever had against me," Van Gundy said.

"I don't think we gave up," the coach added. "We just continued to get our [butt] kicked."

Horton likely suffering from concussion
By: DJ Bean

 Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told reporters Monday that forward Nathan Horton likely has a concussion and is considered day-to-day by the team. 

Horton left Sunday's win over the Flyers in the second period after he was hit in the head by Philadelphia forward Tom Sestito. The league did not discipline Sestito for the hit to the head. 

Horton's postseason was ended in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals last June when he was the victim of a blidnside hit from Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome. After struggling to begin this season, Horton admitted that he still wasn't back to being his usual self after the concussion.

Undermanned Celtics crush Magic

Missing two starters and three rotation players, the Celtics played their best game of the season, beating Orlando 87-56 at the Garden on Monday. It was the first win of the season for the Celtics against a team with a winning record.

Orlando shot just 25 percent and made only five shots in the sevond half. The 56 points was the lowest total in Magic franchise history. Even more impressively, the Celtics were playing without Ray Allen (ankle), Rajon Rondo (wrist), Mickael Pietrus (shoulder), Chris Wilcox (calf strain) and Keyon Dolling (knee).

Paul Pierce scored 19 points to go with five rebounds and seven assists and Brandon Bass added 19 and eight rebounds, while outplaying former Celtic Glen Davis. Additionally, Avery Bradley played phenomenal fullcourt defense on Jameer Nelson and Sasha Pavlovic filled in ably for Allen, scoring nine points.

The Celtics have now won two straight games and are off until Thursday when they play the...

Neely 'disappointed' with Thomas' choice
By: DJ Bean

Bruins president Cam Neely released a statement Monday in response to goaltender Tim Thomas' decision to skip the team's visit to the White House. Thomas was the lone member of the team not to attend.

“As an organization we were honored by President Obama’s invitation to the White House. It was a great day and a perfect way to cap our team’s achievement from last season. It was a day that none of us will soon forget," Neely said in a statement. "We are disappointed that Tim chose not to join us, and his views certainly do not reflect those of the Jacobs family or the Bruins organization. This will be the last public comment from the Bruins organization on this subject.”

He owns a robust career line of .282 with a .349 OBP, .563 slugging mark and .912 OPS against lefties (with the caveat that he hit just .234/.336/.362/.698 against southpaws in 2011, and went from one strikeout per 5.8 plate appearances against lefties through 2010 to one per every 4.8 plate appearances in 2011).

The Sox said from the beginning of the offseason that they would like to add a right-handed hitting outfielder. Ross, who has played primarily center field while...
