Carmelo Anthony scored 20 points for the Knicks but shot 6 for 26. Pierce put it away with a jumper with 45 seconds to go, blowing a kiss toward the crowd.

THE CELTICS keep rolling without Rajon Rondo. Not even a late comeback by one of the NBA's best teams could keep host Boston from beating the Los Angeles Clippers 106-104, on Sunday and improve to 4-0 since a knee injury ended their star point guard's season. "A lot of people say that we don't have a chance to go to the playoffs, we can't do this, we can't do that," starting guard Avery Bradley said. "We know we have each other and we're going to go out there and fight for each other, no matter what, every single night.

A DOUBLE-OVERTIME victory against LeBron James and the defending NBA champions was difficult to celebrate for Paul Pierce and the Celtics. News of Rajon Rondo's season-ending knee injury spoiled the party. "Everyone was really happy for the win," Pierce said after Boston beat the visiting Miami Heat on Sunday, 100-98. "It brought a dark cloud in this room when you heard the news. " When coach Doc Rivers told his players after the game, the joy of ending their six-game losing streak stopped, even if they had just outlasted the team with the best record in the Eastern Conference and which came in with a four-game winning streak.

Boston's Paul Pierce sank the big basket in the second overtime Sunday as the Celtics posted a 100-98 home victory over the Miami Heat. The win was tempered by the news that all-star guard Rajon Rondo would miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. "Everyone was really happy for the win," Pierce said after the win over the Heat. "It brought a dark cloud in this room when you heard the news.

Brown thanks Cavs Former Cleveland coach Mike Brown, fired Monday by the Cavaliers after a second-round playoff loss, was gracious in the statement he issued Wednesday about his dismissal. Brown, 40, called his five years with the Cavs an "exceptional experience" and thanked the team for the opportunity to coach in Cleveland. He led the Cavs to 127 regular-season wins the last two seasons. Of course, it's in his best interests to be gracious. Brown is a likely candidate for five other coaching vacancies in the NBA. Lewis ailing A viral infection may be the reason Orlando Magic forward Rashard Lewis has struggled in the Eastern Conference finals.

NINE HUNDRED and eight days ago the 76ers and Boston Celtics played in a terrific Game 7 to determine who would face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals. It seems like 908 years. The Celtics are a shell of what they once were and the Sixers are now, really, a shell of an NBA team. For the 11th time in as many tries this season, the Sixers failed to grasp victory, dropping a 101-90 decision to the visitors in green. A tied first half became a convincing Boston win because the Celtics (4-6)

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Coach Brett Brown said the 76ers go into every game thinking they can steal a win. The game against the Boston Celtics on Wednesday gives them a good opportunity to finally do so. The Celtics visit the Wells Fargo Center with a 3-6 record after dropping three straight games to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Phoenix Suns. Meanwhile, the Sixers remain winless through 10 games for the first time since the 1972-73 season, when they started 0-15.

TORONTO - Kyle Lowry is arguably one of the NBA's most underrated players. All the Toronto Raptors point guard does is produce. Yet the Philadelphia native has never been an NBA all-star. "At the end of the day, I can't worry about what other people do," said Lowry, a ninth-year veteran. "I have to go out there and do my job. If people make all-stars, and I'm winning, I'm happy with that. I'm not caring about anything but winning. " Toronto (5-1) headed into Sunday's game against the 76ers with the best record in the Eastern Conference.

WHILE THE 76ers were trying to secure their 18th win of the season on Monday against Boston, it wasn't surprising to see Elliot Williams matched up defensively against Rajon Rondo, the Celtics' do-it-all point guard. That has been the role for most of the season for the 24-year-old University of Memphis product. Now a veteran of 90 NBA games (66 with the Sixers this season, 24 with Portland in 2011-12), Williams has impressed coach Brett Brown with his defensive tenacity since joining the team as a free agent early in the season.

BOSTON - It seemed to be the theme around TD Garden Friday night as the 76ers and Celtics prepared to play. That was: "Remember when these were two of the elite teams in the NBA? Remember how great this rivalry used to be?" The references were to the Julius Erving and Larry Bird era. But remember, it was only 2 years ago that these two franchises played a marvelous seven-game series in the second round of the playoffs. Going into Friday night, this year's editions of the Celtics and Sixers had lost 39 of their past 41 games combined.

RAJON RONDO is contagious. And that's a good thing for the Boston Celtics. Resting his surgically repaired knee when his team faced the Sixers last week in Boston, the Celtics were a slow, dump-the-ball-down-low-and-watch basketball team. It worked for Boston center Jared Sullinger, who accounted for 24 points and 17 rebounds. But it wasn't so good for the Celtics, as they dropped a one-point decision to the Sixers. Rondo and his wizardry were back against the host Sixers last night (as was backcourt mate Avery Bradley, who also missed the previous meeting)

Jeff Green hasn't exactly been playing his best basketball of late. But on Wednesday night, the Celtics forward put on a show in front of 10,267 at the Wells Fargo Center. Unfortunately for the 76ers, his performance led to their fourth straight setback and their 14th loss in 17 games. This time, the final score was 114-108. Green finished with 36 points to go with eight rebounds, two assists, and two blocked shots as the Celtics (17-33) won back-to-back games for the first time since Dec. 13 and 16. The Georgetown product made 5 of 7 three-pointers.

THE MIAMI HEAT is the talk of the NBA, on a 15-game winning streak that has separated them from everyone in the Eastern Conference. But the 16-game stretch that the Boston Celtics have put together has to be just as impressive, maybe even more so. That's because Boston has done its damage in those games without Rajon Rondo, who is among the few elite point guards in the NBA. Credit it to coaching, or to veteran leadership or just the know-how of...

ATLANTA - Former 76ers guard Lou Williams was lost for the season on Jan. 18 when he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. But Williams, who signed with the Atlanta Hawks last summer, is optimistic about returning to the NBA next season. A huge reason for Williams' optimism is his surgeon, James Andrews of Gulf Breeze, Fla. Andrews has become a surgical superstar when it comes to repairing knees. He was the surgeon for Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, the NFL's MVP last season.
