With baseball's Mitchell Report about to dominate the sports news today and a bunch of tomorrows, it's refreshing to bring you some bona fide game results from, of all places, the NBA.

* How about those Boston Celtics! It's a crowded sports stage up there in New England, but the Celts are doing all they can to grab their share of the spotlight. Last night, they mowed down Sacramento by 12 points to raise their record to 18-2. They're also keeping the fans happy with an 11-0 mark at home. The Big Three of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett combined for 51 of Boston's 90 points and life is grand.

* The Suns' Steve Nash -- good Canadian that he is -- got part of a tooth knocked out last night but, like his hockey brethren, he soldiered on with 29 points and 11 assists as Phoenix slid by Utah, 103-98. After the game, Nash said it was actually a cap that came out, but I think it still counts. Nash took an accidental shot in the chops from Carlos Boozer (forearm). In chatting about how he got the cap in the first place, he credited Karl Malone.
