Your daily rundown of what's going on with the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and Revolution, and what's about to happen...
- Celtics survived their now-normal fourth-quarter swoon to upend the Bucks when Giannis barely hit rim on his second free-throw with .4 seconds remaining (supermax that).
- Yeah, Tatum's game-winning three was lucky, but the Celtics did some good things down the stretch to emerge with that W.
- B-Robb will chat Celtics later today. I'll be chatting Patriots on Saturday.
- B-Robb's pre-season column.
- And five pressing questions.
- With Jedd Fisch leaving for Arizona, what will the Patriots do if Josh McDaniels gets a head coaching job? There's no ready in-house replacement.
- Red Sox signed a right-handed pitcher.
- Bruins schedule is out. I'm digging the two-game series. Some more opportunities for a little hate to develop.

NOTE on National college basketball schedule. There are so many channels (what the heck is FloHoops?) and Covid cancelations, we simply can't list every game that's on. Haven't really found a good list, but the NCAA daily schedule is here.
