How much will Aqib Talib help the Patriots defense?

Dan Shaughnessy and Steve Buckey join Sports Sunday to talk about the Patriots defense and if the addition of Aqib Talib will immediately make the defense better.

And here's the answer: He certainly can't hurt them anymore.

The Patriots don't want to talk about him, but we do! And Shaughnessy says, "Of course he makes him better. It's talent back there, and they need talent back there."

Buckley agrees, saying the guy can play, but they "aren't going to put him on a Wheaties box".

With injuries to both ankles, Smart unlikely to play tonight

PHILADELPHIA – Things have only gotten worse for the Celtics on the injury front.
 
Marcus Smart, who replaced an injured Gordon Hayward (left ankle) in the Celtics’ starting lineup, is now unlikely to suit up for tonight’s game against Philadelphia.

Smart, whose left ankle was heavily wrapped prior to Boston’s shoot-around this morning, said he rolled both ankles in the 108-100 loss to Milwaukee on Wednesday.
 
Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he had not made a decision on who would replace Smart in the Celtics’ starting lineup tonight.
 
“We’ll do some work all day and pre-game and make a final determination,” Stevens said.
