Perk: We need to start our run now

WALTHAM  --  One of the most consistent players on the Celtics so far says coach Doc Rivers wants to see more consistency as a team."I know Doc said starting from the last game that we want to try to make a run all the way up until our Christmas game," Kendrick Perkins said following Tuesday's practice. "We want to be on the right track. I know guys are locked in and focused right now. We've just got to stick together. It's not always going to be great times through the season all the time so we just have to stick together." The Celtics improved to 10-4 by surviving an overtime scare on Sunday in New York to beat the Knicks, 107-105, on Kevin Garnett's jumper at the buzzer. They play Philadelphia on Wednesday night at TD Garden. For more, visit the Green Street blog.

The Dana-Farber Genetics and Prevention Program offers advanced genetic tests to determine whether individuals are at risk for inherited forms of cancer. Dr. Garber says, “A visit to the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Clinic usually includes time with both a physician and a genetic counselor, both of whom have expertise in all forms of inherited cancer syndromes. We educate patients about cancer risk and its implications for them and their family members. Working with referring physicians, we design individualized programs to monitor for the earliest signs of cancer — diagnosing if it occurs, and, in many cases, preventing it from arising.”
