Good Tuesday morning to everyone, and welcome into another tremendous edition of the Daily Noontime.

* The Boston Celtics earned their fifth consecutive loss, as well as eighth of the season on Monday when the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the Green and White, 97-88. Boston will return to the court on Wednesday when they welcome the Toronto Raptors to the Garden.

* The Boston Bruins picked up an important win on the road, as they edged out the Florida Panthers in shootouts, 3-2. Patrice Bergeron scored twice, while David Krejci cashed in on the game winner during the shootout period. The Black and Gold will continue their road trip on Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

* According to reports – The Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms with left-hander Franklin Morales. Also, the Boston Globe confirmed that the club avoided an arbitration hearing with the 25-year-old.

* New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick commended Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed on the radio by saying, “He’s got great instincts… he’s a magnet to the ball.” Reed ended Sunday’s game with an interception, as well as sustained a sprain on his ankle, too. Yet, don’t expect the experience veteran to sit out the AFC Championship at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.
