18-rebound, eight-assist effort from Ryan

BOSTON -- Jared Sullinger was at a loss to explain how his Boston Celtics could win while committing a season-high 28 turnovers. "I honestly dont know," he said. Try this: 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds by Rajon Rondo, a 62-37 rebounding advantage by the Celtics and a horrible 4-for-30 shooting performance on 3-pointers by the Nets. The result was a 91-84 victory in which Brooklyn never led and had its four-game winning streak stopped Friday night. The rebounding "was obviously the difference in the game for us, from our standpoint. That, and they missed the 3s," Boston coach Brad Stevens said. "Id like to say that it was this outstanding 3-point defence, but I think when you re-watch it, its a lot of open 3s they missed." The Celtics scored the first five points and won for just the second time in nine games. And they held off Brooklyn after an 11-point run cut the lead to 70-68 with 2:02 left in the third quarter. The Celtics came back to take a 78-70 lead entering the final quarter and led by at least seven points the rest of the way. "We shared the ball pretty well with our team, and theirs," Stevens said after watching the Celtics commit twice as many turnovers as Brooklyn, "so, overall, it was at least a step in the right direction." The Nets were led by Joe Johnson with 21 points and Deron Williams with 20 as they fell back to .500 two days after going over the mark for the first time this season. The Celtics (21-41) were coming off a very poor performance in a 108-88 loss to Golden State on Wednesday night. "We need to keep working, keep grinding and understand we cant take anyone lightly," Nets coach Jason Kidd said. Jason Collins, the NBAs first openly gay player, did not play for the Nets for the first time in seven games since signing a 10-day contract Feb. 23. Collins, who played for the Celtics last season, signed a second 10-day contract Wednesday. The Celtics got 15 points from Jeff Green and 14 from Jerryd Bayless. Sullinger led all rebounders with 12. But Rondo was the key, despite his seven turnovers. Rondo missed the first 40 games recovering from off-season knee surgery and has shown an improved shooting touch recently. He hit three of six 3-pointers Friday. "He did a tremendous job coming into the season working on his jumper constantly," Sullinger said. "Now hes starting to become the Rondo we all know every day." Paul Pierce scored 10 points in his second appearance in Boston since the blockbuster trade that sent him and Kevin Garnett to the Nets in the off-season. Pierce spent 15 seasons with the Celtics after they drafted him with the 10th pick in 1998. He received light applause when he was introduced with the other Nets starters. Garnett missed his fourth straight game with back spasms. "Every time I come into this gym, its going to be emotion. Not like last time, though," Pierce said. "We just didnt have any rhythm on offence or defence." Pierce and Garnett each scored six points in their first game in Boston this season, an 85-79 Brooklyn win Jan. 26. Both were emotional during and after video tributes on the video screen above centre court. On Friday, the Celtics led 53-41 at halftime -- after the Nets missed all 17 of their 3-pointers -- and 70-57 with four minutes left in the third quarter. Brooklyn scored the next 11 points with Shaun Livingston starting the spurt with two free throws and Andray Blatche following with a 3-pointer. Andrei Kirilenko made a three-point play, Marcus Thornton sank a layup and Johnson hit a free throw. Green ended the run with a three-point play, the Celtics led 78-70 entering the fourth quarter and stayed ahead by at least seven the rest of the way. Despite all those turnovers. "I remember Bobby Knight on ESPN said the team that had the most turnovers is going to lose," Sullinger said. "I guess we exceeded that expectation." NOTES: Celtics C Vitor Faverani will miss the rest of the season after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to repair a torn lateral meniscus on Friday. ... Pierce made four of 11 shots and is 6-for-24 with 20 points in three games against his former team. Matt Moore Jersey .35 million, avoiding arbitration. Davis led the majors last season with 53 home runs and 138 RBIs, both career highs. He earned $3. Deion Sanders Jersey . Nothing pretty. But this is 1/4 World Cup.

Ricciardos exclusion from the results tarnished what had been a day of celebration for local fans, who were jubilant that the Red Bull driver had apparently become the first Australian to finish on the podium at his home race. However just before midnight, stewards ruled that Ricciardos car had "exceeded consistently the maximum allowed fuel flow" and that the team refused an instruction from the races technical delegate Charlie Whiting to change the fuel-flow sensor before the race and a further request during the race to reduce the fuel flow. Madison Bumgarner Jersey .J. -- The New Jersey Devils are so bad in shootouts, coach Pete DeBoer doesnt mind seeing his team take chances in the five-minute overtime. Willie McCovey Jersey . -- C.J. Cron hit an RBI single on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues, doubled his second time up and hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.Louisville, KY - Chris Jones paced five Louisville players in double figures with 18 points as the seventh-ranked Cardinals posted an 85-67 victory over Marshall at the KFC Yum! Center. Terry Rozier added 17 points and Wayne Blackshear had 16 for Louisville (3-0), which overcame a slow start and a troublesome shooting effort to prevail. The Cardinals hit on just 38.6 percent of their field goal attempts and went 3-of-22 from 3-point range, but forced 21 Marshall turnovers that were converted into 24 points. Montrezl Harrell contributed 12 points to the win, with Chinanu Onuaku recording a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds for Louisville. Marshall (3-1), which had won its first three games -- albeit against far lesser competition -- by an average of 20 points, was led by Shawn Smiths 16 points and an impressive 15-point, 18-rebound, eight-assist effort from Ryan Taylor. Louisvilles shooting woes enabled the Thundering Herd to hang around through much of the first half, with Marshall owning a slim 20-18 edge following DeVince Boykins slam with 8:35 remaining in the opening period. The Cardinals then began to assume control, putting forth an 11-0 run that featured three dunks. Cheikh Sane converted a 3-point play to temporarily give Marshall some momentum, but Louisville answered with eight consecutive points to claim a 37-23 lead with three minutes to go in the half.dddddddddddd Blackshear hit two free throws in the final minute to put Louisville up 41-27 at the break, with 14 of those points coming off 14 Marshall turnovers. Louisville kept up its defensive effectiveness in the second half to make sure the Herd never threatened after the intermission. Marshall continued to struggle making shots, and the Cardinals effectively put the game away with an 11-2 run that was capped by a Jones 3-pointer, which staked Louisville to a commanding 58-36 lead with 13 minutes left. The Cardinals maintained a comfortable differential the rest of the way, with Marshall never cutting the deficit under 13 points. Game Notes Marshall has lost seven straight to the Cardinals and fell to 0-8 all-time in Louisville ... The game was part of the 2014 Global Sports Showcase, a five- time, round-robin event that also contains Cleveland State, Jacksonville State and Savannah State as participants ...
