Noah chance: KG silences Joakim, Bulls

An inspired Kevin Garnett scored 20 points and hauled in 17 rebounds against his arch-nemesis Joakim Noah as the Celtics won their sixth straight, 104-92, over the Chicago Bulls, Friday at TD Garden. Garnett and Noah were well-behaved for most of the night, except when both received technical fouls in the second quarter following a Garnett made jumper. 

 

Rajon Rondo survived a nasty spill to the floor in the third quarter and posted 19 assists to go with 12 points as the Celtics improved to an Eastern Conference-best 15-4 and 9-1 at home. 

 

Noah did shine for the Bulls, with 14 points and 12 rebounds while Derrick Rose led the Bulls with 20 but shot just 7-for-17 on the night.

Source: Padres, Sox talking Gonzalez trade

According to one major league source, who confirmed an ESPN.com report, the Padres and Red Sox have increased dialogue regarding the possibility of an Adrian Gonzalez trade in recent days. However, another source said that the Padres were engaged more broadly in an effort to explore the San Diego first baseman's value to determine whether the team is better off trading the 28-year-old this winter or keeping him for the start of the 2011 season with an eye towards either getting draft picks should he leave in free agency or trading him mid-year should the team fall out of contention.

 

The Sox and Padres have had on-and-off discussions about the idea of a trade of Gonzalez to Boston since at least the middle of the 2009 season. Now, the Padres are in a position where they likely need to make a swift determination about whether they will keep or trade...

Beltre: Years key factor in next contract

Free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre, who is coming off a tremendous 2010 season spent with the Red Sox on a one-year deal, told the Boston Herald that years are the most important factor in his next contract decision. Beltre reportedly has a five-year, $64 million offer from the Athletics. He suggested to the Herald that the length of the deal will be more important than the location of the club (Beltre has said that he would prefer to play on the West Coast, as he and his family live in Southern California).

 

Beltre made clear that he enjoyed his time in Boston, and made it sound as if he would be open to returning to the Red Sox.

 

“I took risks to go there and declined a couple offers I had that were guaranteed,” Beltre told...

Light on Big Show: 'Ready for everything'

Patriots offensive lineman Matt Light was a guest of The Big Show on Friday afternoon to talk about Monday's game against the Jets. Light said he doesn't really care about the playoff scenarios that are affected by this game, as he doesn't need any more motivation. "There is no bigger reason to get excited and amped up than Jets week," he said. "Playing here at home, Monday night. It's pretty simple: We're going to be ready to go, and we've got to go out there and we've got to start fast and we've got to execute."

 

Asked how the Patriots will combat the aggressive Jets defense, Light said the key is communication among the linemen. "Ultimately, it comes down to more of what you do and how well you execute, given the different looks they give you," he said. "Because they're going to give you something that you haven't seen. They're going to give you a lot of the overload stuff, the walking around, the...
