Win or lose tonight — the Andover High girls basketball team is the favorite against Braintree in the Eastern Mass. final — my educated guess is this won’t be the last time you see her picture or...

Enemy Chatter: Doc Rivers out coached Del Negro

Aging Celtics fading from list of contenders

LOS ANGELES Paul Pierce opened the door at the far corner of the visitors' locker room, surveyed the phalanx of reporters camped in front of his locker and receded behind the gray metal door.

It’s time for the Celtics and Lakers to Consider Taking a Huge Risk

Let’s do the Dwight Howard math for a moment.  At some point tomorrow, the Magic organization will realize it can’t trade enough of their spare parts to find a roster that makes Howard happy.  Then he will be quickly shopped by the team in an effort to get the best deal they possibly can before [...]
