A lock?

History says not even these Celtics are a lock The Celtics are a lock. Not just a lock to beat the Pacers, but a lock to beat Minnesota, or Dallas. Create an Indiana-Minnesota-Dallas all-star team and the Celtics will humiliate it. Bet everything you own on it. Forget the lottery. The Celtics are a no-risk, high-return, absolute lock. Anyone over the age of 25 should know better. OK, let’s amend that: Anyone old enough to remember the 18-0, unstoppable, invulnerable New England Patriots. Believing that team could actually lose to the wild-card, barely respectable, New York Football Giants clearly crossed ...

Sideline blunders

Which coach was the most deserving loser? Who was the least valuable coach in the NFL conference championship games?

From Sunday’s NFL action, that means Baltimore’s John Harbaugh or Detroit’s Dan Campbell. Campbell’s greatest strategic sins Sunday were obvious. On a fourth-and-2 play at the San Francisco 28, the Lions went for the first down and failed. On a fourth-and-3 play at the San Francisco 30, Campbell ...
