Tough night in Chi-town: C's lose

The Celtics were probably due for a rough game after playing four times already this week with Saturday night’s game against the Bulls the second back-to-back of the week. Add in the fact that they were playing Tom Thibodeau’s defensive-minded club and it’s no shock that the Celtics shot 38 percent in a 90-79 loss.

 

The Bulls owned the glass (48-27) and the free-throw line as Derrick Rose took a career-high 19 attempts and made 15, which was also a career-best, en route to a 36-point night. The only thing that kept the Celtics in the game were 21 turnovers by Chicago. But even the Bulls largesse wasn’t enough as Chicago was able to pull away in the last five minutes. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen combined to score more than half the Celtics points with 40 between them.

Bruins blow lead, fall to Habs in OT
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins gave up a 2-0 lead in the final minutes of regulation before Max Pacioretty sent a wrist-shot past Tim Thomas at 3:43 of overtime to give the Habs a 3-2 overtime victory.

 

Thomas lost what would have been his sixth shutout of the season with 2:22 remaining in regulation when he failed to get a stick on a Scott Gomez shot with the Canadiens on the power play. One minute and 34 seconds later, former Boston College star Brian Gionta redirected a James Wisniewski shot past Thomas to cap the Habs' comeback.  

 

The Bruins got a pair of goals from Patrice Bergeron, who scored his ninth and 10th goals of the season in the second period. 

 

The Bruins were without the services of Nathan Horton, who missed his first game of the season on Saturday due to what coach Claude Julien would only describe as "discomfort."

 

With the overtime loss, the Bruins remain in...

Super no more: Saints lose to Seahawks

The NFL will crown a new champion in 2011.

 

The Saints, winners of Super Bowl XLIV, saw their visions of a title defense come to an end in the wild card round of the playoffs, suffering a startling 41-36 loss to the Seahawks. Though Seattle is the first team in NFL history to reach the playoffs despite a losing record (7-9) in the regular season, the team took advantage of its home-field advantage (the result of winning the pitiful NFC West) to produce one of the biggest upsets in the league's playoff history.

 

Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselback was 22-for-35 for 272 yards and four touchdowns, while Marshawn Lynch gashed New Orleans for 131 yards on just 19 carries. For the Saints, quarterback Drew Brees was 39-for-60 for 404 yards and two touchdowns, but even though his team had more total yards (475 to 415) and more first downs (32 to 19) than the Seahawks, the failure of the New Orleans defense allowed Seattle to...

Jackson paces BC past Georgia Tech

Reggie Jackson hit 8-of-9 shots and scored 25 points to lead the Eagles past Georgia Tech on Saturday, 86-75, in an ACC game at Conte Forum.

 

Also for BC (12-4, 2-0 ACC), Corey Raji had 22 points and hit a couple of big baskets down the stretch to thwart a Tech comeback bid. BC finished with an impressive 55 percent shooting from the field.

 

Kammeon Holsey led Georgia Tech (7-7, 0-1) with 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting.

 

The Eagles took control of the game early in the second half. They led 47-45 when they embarked on a 13-2 run. It started with a fastbreak layup and free throw by Jackson, followed by a fastbreak layup by Raji off a nice pass by Biko Paris. When Danny Rubin and then Jackson hit 3-pointers — Jackson's coming from well behind the arc with the shot clock running down — the Eagles had a 60-47 lead with 14:11 remaining.

 

Tech fought back to within three points...
