Although 10 games is a little bit more than “midseason”, the Patriots having their bye week this past weekend makes this an ideal time to reflect on their performance so far this season.
The Celtics announced on Tuesday that their new city edition uniforms would see their first live NBA action in Wednesday night's home game against the New York Knicks.
The Bruins announced that star center Patrice Bergeron "sustained a rib and sternoclavicular injury" in last Friday's game against the Dallas Stars and that he would be "re-evaluated in approximately four weeks", suggesting that his absence could extend even longer.
Former Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre has announced his retirement after 21 seasons in the MLB. Beltre only played 1 season for the Red Sox, but has remained a beloved figure in Boston despite his short tenure here. There were even some around Boston clambering for his return at last season's trade deadline to try and win him his first championship in what many expected to be his final season.
This morning Celtics fans have seen Terry Rozier tweet a couple questionable things. What did he mean? Are the two of them connected? Was the second tweet an attempt to cover up the first? So many questions...
It’s been exactly four months since Toronto acquired a former Finals MVP. The Spurs moved on from Kawhi Leonard and acquired an offensive star in DeMar DeRozan last offseason. Toronto had been pressured to make a move due with LeBron James heading to Los Angeles and the Celtics putting themselves in prime position to rule the east for years to come.

The Bruins traveled to Glendale, Arizona Saturday evening to face off against the Coyotes on the second half of back to back games. Patrice Bergeron and John Moore flew home for further medical examination after suffering injuries Friday against the Dallas Stars.

After a half-heartening home win against the Bulls, on Friday night the Celtics faced a much more formidable opponent - the Toronto Raptors. The two favorites in the Eastern Conference were about to go head-to-head.

Friday night’s game was set to give fans a temperature reading in the East - and boy did this one get heated!
After a disappointing 6-3 loss at the hands of the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday night, the Bruins looked to right the ship at their second stop on their four-game road trip when they traveled to American Airlines Center to face off against the Dallas Stars. The team would be without captain Zdeno Chara, who flew back to Boston for further evaluation after sustaining an apparent knee injury against the Avs.
