Firing on all Pistons: C's cruise

Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Michael Finley each scored 15 points and the Celtics built their lead up to 30 points in the fourth quarter and blew out the shorthanded Detroit Pistons, 119-93, Monday night at TD Garden. Trailing 6-2 early, the Celtics scored the next 11 points to start a 29-9 run to end the quarter and never looked back. Finley had his best game off the Boston bench, making 6-of-7 shots from the floor. The Pistons, already without starters Rodney Stuckey and Ben Wallace, lost sharpshooter Tayshaun Prince when he was kneed in the back by teammate Jason Maxiell midway through the first quarter. The Celtics are off Tuesday before hosting the Knicks at TD Garden on St. Patrick's Day Wednesday. For more visit the Green Street blog.

Bruins fall to Devils
By: DJ Bean

Patrice Bergeron's goal, a redirect from a Dennis Seidenberg shot at 18:57 in the third period, wasn't enough to bring the Bruins back from a 3-1 deficit Monday in a game the B's lost 3-2 to the Devils in New Jersey. Tim Thomas started in net for the Bruins but was replaced by Tuukka Rask to start the second after allowing all three of the Devils' goals in the first period. For more, check the Big Bad Blog.

Doc to C's: 'I will get it out of you'

Peppered with questions about his team's effort in the final five minutes of Sunday's double-digit loss in Cleveland, Doc Rivers said he is going to find a way to get better results from his team. "I don't care how frustrating it gets for me," Rivers said before Monday's game with Detroit. "I see it, and if you see it or not, I see it and I'm going to get it out of you. And that's what I told them after the game [Sunday]. I don't know how but I will get it out of you." Rivers also said the team needs better production from Rasheed Wallace and Marquis Daniels.

Ortiz optimistic after home run

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After going 2-for-2, with a two-run homer, a single and a walk in the Red Sox' 8-4 loss to the Orioles Monday at City of Palms Park, David Ortiz said, “That’s why you play in spring training, so I can figure things out. That’s the way it’s supposed to be, right?” The offensive showing was produced after Ortiz entered the game having gone 1-for-21 in spring training. 

  

The home run came in the third inning off of Baltimore starter Brad Bergesen, who threw a 3-1 slider that Ortiz deposited into the right field seats. While the homer might have been somewhat wind-aided, the slugger’s ability to make the most of the circumstance left him with the kind of optimism that he has had a hard time finding throughout the Sox’ Grapefruit League schedule.

 

After the game, Red Sox manager Terry Francona surmised that Ortiz’ best swing of the spring came...

Lowell notches hit, Ortiz homers

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Playing in his first spring training game of the season, Mike Lowell went 1-for-2 with a first-inning single to right. Lowell started at first base -- a position he hadn't played since his time with Triple A Columbus Clippers in 1998 -- not having to field any grounders. He did, however, take two throws from Billy Hall and Tim Wakefield, respectively, his his three-inning stint.

 

Also of note was David Ortiz' second hit of the spring, a third-inning, two-run homer over the right field fence. Ortiz, who walked in his first at-bat of the game, had come into the game 1-for-21.

 

Starter Tim Wakefield went 3 2/3 innings, giving up five runs on nine hits while hitting two batters. He threw 57 pitches, 32 for strikes.
