NBA: Celtics make New Zealander boy's dream come true

A 12-year-old New Zealander boy with a degenerative eye disease has lived out one of his dreams thanks to NBA's Boston Celtics, his favorite team. Louis Corbett made a visual "bucket list" of things he wanted to see before his sight deteriorates and the Celtics made part of that dream come true Wednesday with a pre-game meeting with players, courtside seats, a souvenir shopping spree and an on-court ceremony at which Corbett received a standing ovation. "I just wanted to see what it's like and feel the atmosphere," Corbett said. "It's quite incredible."

Preview: Celtics at Jazz

Two of the worst teams in the NBA square off when the Boston Celtics visit the Utah Jazz on Monday. Boston brings a four-game losing streak into the contest as it closes a four-game road trip, and possesses the fourth worst record in the Eastern Conference while Utah has been at the bottom of the West for nearly the entire season. The Jazz have lost three straight after dropping the opener of a three-game homestand to Minnesota on Saturday.

Preview: Celtics at Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost a franchise-record eight consecutive home games and attempt to halt the dismal skid when they host the Boston Celtics on Friday. Los Angeles is 0-4 on a six-game homestand and was drilled 134-108 by the Dwight Howard-led Houston Rockets on Wednesday. Boston has lost two straight games and three of four and fell 100-94 to the Phoenix Suns in Wednesday’s opener of a four-game road trip.

Suns shake of fatigue to burn Celtics

Preview: Spurs at Celtics

A rash of injuries have the San Antonio Spurs looking like a shell of themselves lately, but they'll try for their fifth straight win over Boston when they visit the Celtics on Wednesday. The Spurs played a listless first half in a 109-100 loss at reeling Detroit on Monday and have lost two of their last three and six of 11. They've dominated the Celtics recently but may be catching Boston at the wrong time — the Celtics have won four of their last five.

Preview: Celtics at Bucks

The Boston Celtics will look to get back on track after a woeful shooting performance in Sunday's loss to Dallas when they face host Milwaukee on Monday. Boston shot less than 30 percent for most of the game against the Mavericks, finishing at 35.9 percent thanks to a late run that masked how bad a showing it was. While the lowly Bucks might seem a cure-all for most teams looking to rebound, there are no guarantees, as Boston is the only team Milwaukee has beaten more than once this season.

Preview: Celtics at 76ers

Not much has gone right for the Philadelphia 76ers over the past month but one bright spot was a win at Boston a week ago, which they'll try to repeat when they host the Celtics on Wednesday.
