If he so chooses, Paul Pierce could Tweet some taunts about a sweep and not blame hackers for it this time.

It was their sixth straight triumph in the NBA playoffs. Game 4 is scheduled for Monday night, which gives the Magic two days to orchestrate a search party and find the missing offense of Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis.

Two wins away from the NBA Finals, the Celtics have plenty of reasons for confidence. But overconfidence? Don't count on it, no matter what Paul Pierce said. Before leaving the court after Boston took a 2-0 lead over the Magic with a 95-92 win on Tuesday night, Pierce said in a live 60-second television interview that the Celtics were coming home to close it out. Coach Doc Rivers said Thursday he didn't like the remark, although he was pleased that Pierce was confident.

Such are the things that big TV ratings are made of. The Celtics wove those storylines to reality Sunday with a 92-86 victory over the Lakers to take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Looks like the Heat worked out their issues with big teams, last shots and being crybabies, huh? Of course, when someone goes up, someone goes down … Meet the Celtics! After losing at home to the Clippers last week, coach Doc Rivers noted, "No one cried; we're OK. " By the time they lost back-to-back to the 76ers and Nets, Doc had cranked the spin up so high, press people were toppling over. "It doesn't bother me unless they're going to start to have back-to-backs in the playoffs," Rivers said.

Walton set precedent Dom Amore Hartford Courant There probably were those who chuckled or rolled their eyes when the Celtics picked up Bill Walton for a magical mystery tour in the mid-1980s. A once-great center, no longer a star, no longer able to stand up to the rigors of full-time play, just what did Red Auerbach think he was doing when he signed "Big Red"? You know the rest. Walton knew how to win, and knew how to tailor his remaining skills to the needs of a team that was already solid, and chemistry paid off in a championship.

BOSTON — The Lakers were dominant down low, the Celtics unable to stop Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, when good fortune smiled upon the Celtics as a most unusual event took place, something called the start of the fourth quarter. Gasol had one shot, Bynum had two over the final 12 minutes, and the Celtics evened up the NBA Finals with a 103-94 victory in Game 2 on Sunday. Gasol had 25 points but only one in the fourth quarter, and Bynum had 21 in the game, four in the fourth quarter, part of the reason the Lakers headed to Boston in a deadlocked series that resumes Tuesday with Game 3 at certain-to-be-raucous TD Garden.

A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the Celtics are making progress on a deal that would bring Shaquille O'Neal to Boston. Earlier Tuesday, the four-time NBA champion said he will be in the league next season and would rather retire than play internationally. The 38-year-old O'Neal spent last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He has struggled to find a contract from a team that can guarantee him playing time, enough money and a chance for one more championship.

McDonogh boys coach Steve Nichols made a difficult decision this offseason to break away from the U.S. Development Academy and create his own club soccer team. The Academy rules prohibit players from competing for their respective high schools without a waiver and require uniformity with daily training. Nichols was confident he could build an environment where players could get optimal training and still compete for their respective schools. With this in mind, Nichols left the Baltimore Bays Chelsea and formed Baltimore Celtic Soccer Club.

The Trinity Catholic football team survived a 14-hour bus ride up Interstate 95 to make it to Calvert Hall on Saturday. Once there, the Ocala, Fla., power needed one frantic five-second spurt to secure a key early-season win. That's how long it took the Celtics to score two touchdowns, including Dominique Brown's 12-yard fumble return off a kickoff, sealing the fate of the No. 3 Cardinals in a 21-3 loss. Despite allowing just 30 yards on defense in the first half, time and again stopping the Celtics in key situations, Calvert Hall couldn't overcome the big play.

Enough is enough Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune I can live with the one-game clip. But if I were dean of discipline, Rajon Rondo also would have to agree to some conditions. Start with publicly apologizing to official Marc Davis. Acknowledge that you intentionally bumped him. He didn't get in your way, as you pathetically claimed. Go to some elementary schools and tell the kids that what you did was inexcusable. They look up to you; they're watching you. Why should they respect referees after seeing what you did?

LANDOVER -- If Chris Webber had sat on the bench in street clothes -- and who could have faulted him, after traveling half the night before -- the fans would not have cared.

But there was no happy ending in the debut of Webber and just-signed No. 1 draft pick Juwan Howard, as the Bullets dropped a heartbreaking, 103-102 game to the Boston Celtics before a sellout crowd of 18,756 at the USAir Arena.
