Chad Ochocinco looking for a place to crash

(NECN: Eileen Curran, Foxboro, MA) - Thenewest addition to the New England Patriots family is looking for a place tolive for the start of the season. All Ochocinco asks that you have is theInternet and an X-box.
Will it be a Comm. Ave condo? Or a slice of suburban life? He is receiving many offers, from sweet, innocent kids to women offering things we can't discuss here.
Chad Ochocinco says he is going to stay with a fan for a little while.I'm actually going to stay with a fan probably first twothree weeks of season until I get myself acclimated and learn my way around andactually just find a place, says Ochocinco.He put the word out in the media and social media, with hisTwitter posting on August 3: Im picking a season ticket holder and stayingwith them until I find a place, said his tweet.Now it seems any fan is an option and stay with me hasbecome the mantra of Ochocinco fans. Its even the slogan on a t-shirt that No.85 is selling.
Fans will go to any length it seems to get him to pick them.
My friends have offered to clean out their garages, give uptheir basements, sell their families, says one fan.
Ochocinco does have a couple of requirements though.
They have to have internet have to have an xbox, he toldthe media.He said he wanted an x-box so I'd probably go borrow onefrom my friend. I don't know if I'd buy one, but borrow one for sure, says another fan.
Ochocinco stands to make a lot of money from the t-shirtsales, but will probably profit more from the self promotion.He's really cool. He's really down to earth. He drives a Priuswithout a gps and just wants to talk to people and get to know the area on hisown without people helping him, says the fan who has friends offering to sell their families.
Stay with me Ocho, says Maceta David.
Stay with me Ocho and Ill give you my room, says Jonathan David.
Jonathan and Maceta David of Pawtucket, RI would love tohave Ochocinco move in and their dad is all for it, too.Oh fine I would appreciate that it would be an honor,says Jonathan and Maceta's dad.
When asked what he would do with Ochocinco, 10-year-oldJonathan had a little trouble coming up with an answer.Probably have him help to clean my room, says Jonathan.No word on when Ochocinco will choose the lucky fan, but the offer of cleaning someone's room may not be the winning answer.

DeRozan has career-high 43, Raptors beat Celtics, 107-97

DeRozan has career-high 43, Raptors beat Celtics, 107-97

TORONTO - DeMar DeRozan scored a career-high 43 points and the Toronto Raptors rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat the Boston Celtics 107-97 on Friday night.

DeRozan shot 15 of 28 from the floor as he surpassed his 42-point effort against the Houston Rockets on March 30, 2015, helping the Raptors overcome the absence of fellow All-Star Kyle Lowry. Lowry sat out with a right wrist injury.

Serge Ibaka, acquired by trade from the Orlando Magic last week, scored 15 points in his debut, while fellow newcomer P.J. Tucker, picked up from the Phoenix Suns on Thursday, had a game-high 10 rebounds and nine points in his first game for his new team.

Isaiah Thomas scored 20 points for Boston, which also got 19 points each from Jae Crowder and Marcus Smart.

Down 91-88 with 4:11 to play, the Raptors went on a 9-1 run to lead by five with 2:01 to play. Though Crowder cut that lead to three with a jump shot with 1:46 remaining, DeRozan drilled a jump shot with a minute remaining to put the Raptors up by five.

Tucker was unable to convert either free throw after being fouled by Al Horford with 47 seconds left, but Thomas missed the next time down the court, and after being fouled by Smart, DeRozan converted both free throws with 33 seconds to play. He then followed up with two more after a three-point play from Smart to take the game away from Boston with 27.5 seconds to go.

The Celtics found their range early, connecting on 55 percent of their shots from the floor and 40 percent from 3-point range in the first quarter. The Raptors could only hit 40 percent and went 0 for 3 from beyond the arc, and while DeRozan topped all scorers with 10 points, they were trailing 29-18 after 12 minutes.

Boston pushed its lead to 17 on a 3-point shot from Jaylen Brown with 1:29 to play in the half, but Toronto closed on a 7-0 run following a flagrant foul by Thomas on DeRozan.

The Raptors continued their comeback effort in the third quarter, with Ibaka's 3-pointer with 5:58 to go capping a 27-8 Toronto run to give the Raptors their first lead since the 3:54 mark of the first quarter. Smart's 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds remaining handed Boston a 77-74 edge entering the final 12 minutes.
