Monroe, Bucks stop Celtics' 4-game win streak

Jason Kidd may have figured out the only way to beat the Celtics — stack the bench. Kidd’€™s decision to bring Greg Monroe and Michael Carter-Williams off the bench paid off, as the Bucks defeated the Celtics 112-111 on Tuesday in Milwaukee.

The Bucks built a huge second-half lead, outscoring the Celtics 40-20 in the third quarter. Monroe was simply unstoppable, scoring 12 of his game-high 29 points in the frame. In the final six minutes, the Celtics made a frantic comeback, cutting a 19-point deficit to three with 59 seconds to play, setting up a wild final minute.

A Joe Crowder 3-pointer tied the game, 109-109, but a Monroe layup put the Bucks back up by two with only one second remaining. On the ensuing inbounds pass — with the Celtics in the bonus — Jerryd Bayless...

UNC coach collapses during close win over BC

Boston College played its best game of the season Tuesday night, pushing ninth-ranked North Carolina to the limit before dropping a 66-63 decision at Conte Forum. Eli Carter led the way for BC with a game-high 26 points, while Dennis Clifford had 14 points and 13 rebounds.

However, the bigger news from the game was longtime UNC coach Roy Williams collapsing during a second-half timeout. A team spokesman said Williams had a bout of vertigo, something the 65-year-old has dealt with in the past.

The incident occurred early in the second half. After the media timeout was called, Williams complained to an official about a call, then his legs gave out just after he got to his team’s huddle. Williams, who was holding his forehead, received immediate attention from the team’s trainer...

Kings crush Bruins in Lucic's return
By: DJ Bean

Over the years, Milan Lucic grew accustomed to his his team, an annual Stanley Cup contender, dominating teams in Boston. He got to experience that one more time Tuesday.

The Kings ran over the Bruins, 9-2, in Lucic’€™s first game back in Boston since being traded to Los Angeles in the offseason. Lucic scored the Kings’€™ seventh goal, giving him 13 goals on the season.

The Bruins yanked Rask after the Kings’€™ fifth goal in favor of Jonas Gustavsson, marking the first time this season they have pulled Rask from a game.

The loss provided further perspective on how good the Bruins actually are despite playing in a bad division and conference. Though the Bruins entered the game 10-4-0 against Eastern Conference playoff teams and 5-1-0 against Atlantic Division playoff teams,...

Patriots waive RB Ball

The Patriots have waived running back Montee Ball, according to the NFL transaction wire.

Ball, 25, was signed by New England to the practice squad in December. The former second-round pick of the Broncos in 2013 did not see any game action with the Patriots this season.

Ball was charged with two misdemeanors in a domestic assault case involving his girlfriend earlier this winter, but it was revealed Monday that he won’t face felony charges.
