Celtics keep it close but fall to surging Warriors

The Celtics have struggled to find a go-to scorer all season. Golden State, on the other hand, has cruised behind an MVP-caliber season from Stephen Curry. So, when the C’s visited a Warriors team coming off a game in which Klay Thompson poured in an NBA record 37 points in the third quarter alone, things were expected to get ugly.

Yet, the Celtics kept it competitive throughout the game despite eventually falling to the Warriors, 114-111. Jared Sullinger led the way for Boston with 26 points, nine rebounds and three assists. The loss drops the C’s to 15-27 and snaps a two-game win streak.

Kelly: 'I'm going to win the Cy Young this year'

LEDYARD, Conn. ‘€“ The Red Sox tried something new this offseason, and the Red Sox players didn’€™t seem to mind it at all.

Hundreds of fans poured into Foxwoods Resort and Casino for the Sox’€™ first-ever Winter Weekend to participate in a variety of activities and events. One of the byproducts of the festivities was the opportunity for the majority of the Red Sox roster to gather together prior to heading to Fort Myers for the first official reporting date, Feb. 20.

Here are some of the takeaways from the player availability:

Belichick: 'I'm proud of this team'

FOXBORO — This was a Bill Belichick no one had ever seen before.

The coach with over 40 years of coaching experience rarely ever gets as fired up and passionate about something as he did Saturday afternoon in an impromptu press conference to put an end to the Deflategate story this week — at least for the time being.

It was in that 25 or so minute press conference that he went off course a bit and discussed this year’s team and how hard they work when referencing the footballs the team uses in practice, as they are often messed with (ie. pouring water on them) to prepare the team for the toughest of playing conditions.

“Anyone who has seen us practice knows that we make it harder, not easier, to handle the football,” Belichick said. “Our players train in conditions that a lot of people would recommend that we not drive in....
