Report: Gonzalez to Sox still possible
By: DJ Bean

Despite the 2 p.m. deadline for the Red Sox to negotiate a contract with Adrian Gonzalez passing, the deal to acquire the slugger could go down, according to a tweet from Fox Sports' Jon Morosi. A source familiar with the negotiations told Morosi that the deal is "not done yet."


Peter Gammons of NESN and the MLB Network tweeted that deal is "off but not entirely." Gammons added that Gonzalez is set to leave Boston at 4:30 p.m. 

Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman tweeted following the deadline that the trade had fallen through because an extension wasn't inked.

Afternoon delight: Celtics crush Nets

Even without Rajon Rondo, who missed the game after his hamstring tightened up, the Celtics had little problem with the Nets, cruising to a 100-75 victory Sunday afternoon on New Jersey. Nate Robinson scored 21 points and had six rebounds and six assists in place of Rondo and Kevin Garnett had 14 rebounds in just 26 minutes of work. It was Garnett's 11th double-digit rebounding game of the season, tying his output from all of last season.


Glen Davis also had a strong game off the bench with 16 points and nine rebounds. The only negative for the Celtics was Shaquille O'Neal missed the second half with a sore calf, but the Celtics didn't need him.


The C's have now won seven straight games and have a one-game lead over Orlando for the best record in the Eastern Conference at 16-4.
