Marquee win: Rondo, C's best Bulls

Rajon Rondo scored a season-high 32 points, dished out 15 assists and grabbed 10 rebounds for a triple-double as the Celtics outlasted the Bulls, 95-91, Sunday afternoon at TD Garden. The win was arguably Boston's biggest this season as Chicago entered with an NBA-best 23-6 record. 

The Bulls were playing their second straight game without reigning MVP Derrick Rose (sore back) while the Celtics were without starting center Jermaine O'Neal and power forward Brandon Bass. O'Neal is day-to-day with knee and shoulder injuries while Bass is out 10-14 days with a sore knee. Chris Wilcox filled in for O'Neal and had four thunderous dunks and 11 points in 26 minutes. Kevin Garnett had 13 points and 12 rebounds while rookie JaJuan Johnson scored 12 in 33 minutes. 

The Celtics started out red-hot, hitting nine of their first 10 shots from the floor and building an early 11-point lead at 18-7. They finished the first quarter connecting on 13-of-22...

Bass out up to two weeks with sore knee

The Celtics will once again be without Jermaine O'Neal when they play the Bulls on Sunday and they will also be missing sixth man Brandon Bass, who is dealing with a sore knee. Bass missed one game earlier this season, but it swelled up after Friday's game in Toronto.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that O'Neal was day-to-day, but Bass could be out for 10 days to two weeks. It's a significant blow for the Celtics who will start Chris Wilcox at center opposite Kevin Garnett and will have to rely on rookies Greg Stiemsma and JaJuan Johnson for depth.

Asked if Johnson was ready to contribute meaningful minutes, Rivers said, "Not yet. I think he’s getting close. You’ve got to execute when you’re on the floor. That’s an area he has to improve on. He’s talented, but there’s a level, to me, of intensity that you have to play with every night and focus and he’s inconsistent in that. But he’s getting...

Bulls' Rose out with back spasms

Derrick Rose, the reigning Most Valuable Player, will miss Sunday's game against the Celtics with back spasms and he will see a specialist on Monday when the team returns to Chicago.

"It's killing me right now, not being able to play," Rose said. "You've just got to stay positive and hope for the best."

Rose said it was way too early to consider whether he's skip the All-Star game and the team said they were taking the injury day-by-day. This will be the seventh game that Rose has missed this season. Entering play on Sunday, the Bulls are 5-1 without their point guard.

Harvard suffers first Ivy loss at Princeton

Ian Hummer had 20 points and nine rebounds and Princeton continued its home mastery over Harvard, beating the 25th-ranked Crimson Saturday night, 70-62.

It was Princeton's 23rd consecutive home win over Harvard, a streak that began in 1990, and it ended with the fans storming the court to celebrate the school's first win over a ranked team at home since Jan. 3, 1977 (Notre Dame).

Keith Wright had 16 points and 12 rebounds for Harvard (21-3, 7-1 Ivy), which suffered its first league loss but remains in first place, a game ahead of Yale. Brandyn Curry added 15 points and Kyle Casey scored 12, although he missed three key free throws down the stretch.

T.J. Bray contributed 12 points for Princeton (13-10, 4-3).

Harvard had a five-point lead at the half, 27-22. Princeton caught up 4 1/2 minutes into Period 2, and the game stayed tight for the next 10 minutes. Bray put Princeton ahead to stay with 5:13 remaining on a jumper that made it 48-...
