Blakely: Rondo 'sliced up' Toronto's defense

After seven straight games decided by six points or less, the Celtics appreciated a comfortable win on Saturday and they did it behind the shooting of Jason Terry and the passing of Rajon Rondo.

A. Sherrod Blakely discusses how Rajon Rondo picked apart the Toronto defense, en route to 20 assists. Before the game Doc Rivers said he would watch Rondo, who is dealing with an injury, to make sure he could move around. With 20 assists, it seems safe to say Rivers liked what he saw.

When Rondo wasn't slicing up the defense, it was Jason Terry knocking down big shots. When the Raptors went to a zone defense, Terry took over, exploding for 20 points.

FOXBORO -- An otherwise mundane 26-10 dispatching of the Los Angeles Rams Sunday by the New England Patriots was made historic by Tom Brady.

PATRIOTS 26, RAMS 10

The victory was Brady's 201st as a starting quarterback in the NFL -- 1797 regular-season wins, 22 in the playoffs -- and made him the winningest quarterback in league history. Coming into the game he had been tied with Peyton Manning at 200 wins.

"I'm grateful to all my teammates, coaches, family and friends," Brady said. "I've been fortunate to have been on some great teams . . . [And] it's always been about winning."
