BOSTON - Not everything was drab and gray for the Lakers on Thursday, despite the NBA suspending Nick Young for one game. They headed east for six games, an itinerary of optimism for Western Conference teams this season, even heavily damaged ones. The East has rarely been more least than now, broken down into heavyweights Miami, Indiana and a bunch of willy-nilly teams under .500. Toronto (19-18) recently squirted just above .500, though nobody knew it, even in Toronto, because the Maple Leafs were playing well.

Boston point guard Rajon Rondo, who has been out for nearly a year since injuring his right knee, hopes to return to the Celtics lineup before the NBA All-Star break, he told reporters Friday. “It's just a feeling,” Rondo said after the team's shoot-around. “I'll probably just wake up that morning and play. "It may be this month, next month. It'll be before the All-Star break. " Rondo, who began full workouts in December, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a game against the Miami Heat last Jan. 27. Celtics Coach Brad Stevens said there is no target date and one has not been discussed.

BOSTON - Doc Rivers paused for about 10 seconds as he tried to collect his thoughts, his emotions still getting the best of him as he tried to explain how much his return to the site of his biggest moments as an NBA coach affected him. His eyes turned red as they welled up with tears, leaving Rivers still overwhelmed after his Clippers beat the Boston Celtics, 96-88, Wednesday night at TD Garden. Rivers coached the Celtics for nine seasons, winning a championship in 2008, and now he was back in Boston for the first time since he moved to Los Angeles in June to become coach of the Clippers.

BOSTON - Doc Rivers is returning to the site of his most glorious moments as an NBA coach. Rivers is bringing his new team, the Clippers, to face his old team, the Boston Celtics, a team he led to an NBA championship in 2008 and to the NBA Finals in 2010. He spent nine seasons with the Celtics before he bolted from Boston last June, rather than stick around for a rebuilding project, to join the Clippers to become the coach and senior vice president of basketball operations.
