CHICAGO - A few days into the regular season, the short-handed Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls already are in grind mode. Nick Markakis Braves Jersey .Emergency starter Evan Turner scored 19 points, one of seven Boston players in double figures, as the Celtics passed an early test with a 106-101 victory on Saturday night. The Celtics did it without Rajon Rondo, who missed his fourth game of the season.Listen, we had to play great tonight, and we did for the better part of the game, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after his teams third game in four days. Then Aaron Brooks went nuts at the end. You knew they were going to make a run. Im just glad we didnt play a 49-minute game.Kelly Olynyk finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds for Boston, while Jeff Green contributed 14 points.Brooks led Chicago with 26 points — 19 in the fourth quarter. Pau Gasol added 19 points and nine rebounds.After Brooks hit a three-pointer and a pair of free throws to pull the Bulls within 99-96, Olynyk split a pair of free throws. Brooks connected on a two-pointer, but Turner, Olynyk and Green answered with two free throws apiece in the final 17 seconds to seal the outcome.We just kind of had to weather the storm, make some plays, Olynyk said. E.T. hit some big shots. We got some big rebounds and just found a way.The game was the fourth for the Bulls in five days and their second straight with injured guard Derrick Rose out of the lineup. As usual, Thibodeau wasnt in the mood for excuses after what he described as a low-energy first half.No, it was not (because of) four games in five nights, Brooks offered. We just played badly. I think they were on the same schedule we had.Specifically, Thibodeau was concerned about a 45-38 rebound disadvantage. We have to do something to change it, he said.Joakim Noah had a team-high 11 rebounds but sat out the final 2:03 because of what Thibodeau called restrictions. Neither would say whether they were related to a minutes limitation or complications from Noahs left knee surgery six months earlier.Im always concerned, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said when asked about Noahs health.The Celtics seized control in the final 6 minutes of the second period, which they closed on a 27-8 run to take a 56-41 lead into the break. Avery Bradley scored nine and Turner added six more in the decisive stretch.Boston bolted to a 12-2 lead at the outset, as Chicago misfired on 10 of its first 11 field goal tries. After a time-out, Gasol sparked a comeback that saw his team connect on 10 of its final 13 shots in the period to take a 25-20 advantage.But the Bulls couldnt sustain the momentum, and when Tyler Zeller scored off Bradleys lob pass midway through the third quarter, the Celtics took a 36-35 lead that wasnt seriously threatened until the final minute.We have to get a lot better, Stevens said. Obviously, we have to get healthy. It was the second night of a back-to-back for both teams. I dont think they played as well as theyve played, and I thought we did some really good things, but we have to play more (complete) 48 minutes.TIP-INSCeltics: Turner filled in for Rondo, who remained in Boston to have screws removed from his surgically repaired left hand. Rondo could be available for the date with Oklahoma City on Wednesday night. Smart is expected to miss two-to-three weeks because of a sprained left ankle and bone bruise, which he suffered in a victory against Indiana on Friday night. (Smart) feels better, but its going to take a couple weeks to get back, Stevens said. And thats hopeful, because sometimes those high ankle sprains are much more difficult than that.Bulls: Rose sat out with sprains in both ankles. Veteran Kirk Hinrich started in his place but went scoreless in 13 minutes. Just out, Thibodeau said of Roses status. Hes not ready to go yet. Well see where he is tomorrow.UP NEXTCeltics: Wednesday night versus Oklahoma City.Bulls: Monday night versus Detroit.BETTER LATE THAN NEVER?Given the abundance of injuries around the league thus far, Thibodeau said it was a good question whether star players would sit out long stretches of the regular season with the playoffs in mind. Theres no way to tell until theres an extended study based on 20 years or so, he said. Theres a school of thought that you have to prepare for the grind of the long season. When you study championship teams, you see that commitment to it. Deion Sanders Braves Jersey . - Tom Brady and the Patriots routed the Bengals and quieted the doubters.

Now they need star wide receiver Andre Johnson back in the fold. New coach Bill OBrien named Ryan Fitzpatrick the starter, an announcement overshadowed somewhat by Johnsons absence Tuesday on the first day of a mandatory three-day mini-camp. Johnson hasnt participated in any of the teams voluntary off-season workouts and said last month that he wouldnt attend these workouts, either. On Tuesday, he missed the opening day of workouts that are the last before training camp in late July. Fitzpatrick signed with the team in the off-season a day before Matt Schaub was traded to the Raiders and OBrien made him compete with the three other quarterbacks on the roster for the starting job. "He definitely earned it," OBrien said. "He earned it with his preparation. He earned it with his accuracy. He earned it with his command at the line of scrimmage." A former starter for the Buffalo Bills, the nine-year veteran started nine games last season for Tennessee after Jake Locker was injured. Fitzpatrick threw for 2,454 yards and 14 touchdowns last season. "This is where I wanted to be," Fitzpatrick said. "I wanted another shot at it. I wanted another chance to be the guy." OBrien said this decision doesnt mean that things cant change as the year progresses. "Everybody on our team every single day has to go out there and earn their spot on the team, earn their starting spot," OBrien said. "So quarterback is no different. We have confidence in his ability to lead our football team. Hes done a really good job in the off-season of picking up our system and hes executed it well." Case Keenum, who took over as starter when Schaub was benched last season, T.J. Yates and rookie Tom Savage are vying to be the backupp to Fitzpatrick. Jalen Hurts Alabama Jersey. "With all three of those guys we need just a little bit more consistency," OBrien said. "It has nothing to do with effort or work ethic. Those guys have all worked extremely hard. Theyve all done what weve asked them to do." Johnson has said he has not asked for a trade but last month wondered if Houston was "still the place for me." The 32-year-old receiver is Houstons longest-tenured player after joining the franchise in its second season. OBrien said that he has spoken to and text messaged with Johnson, but wouldnt reveal any details. He said he isnt concerned that Johnson has missed the implementation of his new offence. "I believe based on the different systems that hes been in that hed be able to pick up on our system," OBrien said. "Hes a bright guy, a very bright guy and a guy thats done a lot in this league. So I think hed be able to figure it out." OBrien also doesnt think that Johnsons absence is taking away from the rest of the teams work. "Its really about the guys that are here and theyre working extremely hard," OBrien said. "They dont seem to be too distracted." With Johnson out, Houstons young group of receivers is led by last years first-round pick DeAndre Hopkins and includes third-year players DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin. "Weve thrown a lot at them," OBrien said. "Its not easy to play receiver in this system and those guys seem to be getting better every day." Houston had preseason Super Bowl aspirations last year, but wound up with an NFL-worst 2-14 record. Rather than choosing a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick, they chose defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney, who is recovering from surgery to repair a sports hernia and also not at the mini-camp.
