The Celtics officially announced the signing of free agent point guard Carlos Arroyo, who was recently waived by Miami to make room for Mike Bibby. With Arroyo on the roster, the Celtics now are at the maximum of 15 players on the roster and this likely completes the mid-season makeover. Nate Robinson, Kendrick Perkins, Marquis Daniels, Semih Erden and Luke Harangody are out and Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic, Troy Murphy, Sasha Pavlovic and Arroyo are in.
Arroyo started 42 games for Miami and averaged 5.6 points and 2 assists per game. He will provide depth behind Rajon Rondo and Delonte West. Arroyo is expected to join the team in Boston on Monday.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Adrian Gonzalez took another step in his rehabilitation from off-season shoulder surgery, taking batting practice on Sunday morning for the first time this spring.
The first baseman took 25 swings in his five rounds of batting practice, and showed power to all sides of the field. He hit three balls over the right field fence in his final five swings. Pawtucket manager Arnie Beyeler did the pitching to Gonzalez, who was being closely observed by trainer Mike Reinold and hitting coach Dave Magadan.
"I was feeling good the whole time, and it felt good to get out there," said Gonzalez. "It was good, it really was."

Dustin Jeffrey scored his second goal of the game at 1:52 of overtime to lead the Penguins to a 3-2 win over the Bruins Saturday night at TD Garden, snapping Boston's season-long winning streak at seven games. The seven-game run was Boston's best since winning 10 straight from Dec. 12, 2008-Jan. 1, 2009.
David Krejci scored with an extra attacker with 32.5 seconds remaining to force overtime, just moments after Tomas Kaberle blocked Matt Cooke's shot on an empty net. Jordan Staal and Jeffrey scored 70 seconds apart in the second period to erase a one-goal deficit.
Zdeno Chara snapped a 19-game drought when he scored his first goal since a hat trick on Jan. 17 on wrister from between the circles that beat Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury up top. The goal at 7:26 of the second period gave Boston a 1-0 lead they would hold for only two and a half minutes.

Casey, from Medway, scored 17 of his points in the first half and was a force down low for the Crimson before fouling out with 1:36 remaining. Also for Harvard, Oliver McNally scored 15 points while Keith Wright contributed 13 points and six blocks.
The sellout crowd rushed the court after Harvard completed a perfect 14-0 home slate. The Crimson have won 17 straight at Lavietes dating back to last season. That and their 23...
