BOSTON -- Isaiah Thomas tied his career high with 37 points for the Boston Celtics at New Orleans on Monday night.In New York, Harrison Barnes registered his fourth straight 20-point game for the Dallas Mavericks.The individual efforts, however, didnt lead to victories and the teams meet at TD Garden on Wednesday night.I think were at a time where as a team each person has to look at individually what they can do, Barnes, who won a ring with the Golden State Warriors last season, said after the Mavs, again playing without Dirk Nowitzki, lost 93-77 to the Knicks.Thomas, the Celtics little giant, put on a one-man show in the fourth quarter in New Orleans, only to have the Pelicans emerge with just their second win in 11 games.I dont feel like we played as well as we should have, Avery Bradley said after his team fell to 5-5. Even myself -- I dont feel like I came out and made shots in the second half and it hurt our team. It cant just be Isaiah; it has to be other guys that are out there making plays for each other and making shots.Nowitzki has missed the last four games for the Mavs (2-7) with an Achilles injury, joining teammates Deron Williams and Devin Harris on the sideline. He went through an extensive working in New York pre-game but just wasnt ready. It didnt sound like Wednesday would be any different.The biggest issue is just the running. Im not a big runner at this stage of my career, but I cant really go up and down yet, Nowitzki said Monday. I havent really done a full practice, so Im just not quite there yet. But the good thing is its getting better.Since sitting out last week, obviously, Im doing more and more. Weve increased the load, so Im getting closer. But unfortunately, we just couldnt pull it off tonight.Owner Mark Cuban told the Dallas Morning News: You play the hand youre dealt. I think hes really close. Hes feeling better. We just dont want to rush anything. Theres no reason to. Well wait until theyre healthy.While Dallas has been missing its aging star and two others, the Celtics have been without Al Horford (concussion, seven games) and former Mav Jae Crowder (ankle, six games). Both were close, but Crowder is out Wednesday and Horford is a possibility to return.Were trying to be as smart as we can about this, Horford said. I just want to make sure that when Im ready to go Im good to go.Thomas scored 37 Monday despite a sore middle finger on his left hand. He also had seven assists while going 13-for-29 from the floor.I just dont have the same feel I have when its not swollen, so a lot of my layups and (shots) come off my hand wrong, he said. Im just trying to slowly figure it out and adjust. Its tough, but theres no excuses, so Ill figure it out.Said coach Brad Stevens: Isaiahs super tough. He always has nicks and bruises because of the way he plays, but hes a tough guy.Thomas, who has had at least 20 points in all 10 Boston games, is eighth in the NBA with a 26.9 scoring average and is 10th with 6.6 assists. He is averaging the same number of rebounds and turnovers -- 2.8.Barnes, who signed a $94 million contract with the Mavericks, was shaky in the preseason. But he has been coming on. He has raised his scoring average to 22.3 points per game, to go along with 5.9 rebounds.The Mavericks swept the two-game season series with the Celtics for the third straight year in 2015-16 and bring a seven-game series winning streak into this game.

MINNEAPOLIS -- David Ortiz insists he isnt trying to do anything special to show the Minnesota Twins they made a big mistake by letting him go in 2002. It just looks that way every time he crushes another ball into the Target Field seats. Ortiz homered twice and drove in six runs to torment his former team once again, leading the Boston Red Sox to a 12-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night. "It used to be," Ortiz said when asked if there was extra motivation when he played the Twins. "Not anymore. I just go about my business. I try to hit the moon every time I go to hit anywhere. Its not new." Dustin Pedroia had two hits, two walks and an RBI, extending his hitting streak to 10 games. Daniel Nava also went deep for the Red Sox, who have won four straight following a slide in which they had lost 10 of 14. Scott Diamond (3-4) gave up six runs on eight hits and walked three in 4 1-3 innings for the Twins, who have lost four in a row to fall into last place in the AL Central. Pedro Florimon had two hits and two RBIs and Joe Mauer extended his hitting streak to 15 games with two hits. Craig Breslow (1-0) pitched 1 2-3 innings of scoreless relief for the win. Ortiz also had a single and a walk, raising his batting average to .362 in a game that lasted 3 hours, 53 minutes. "His performance is as good as youre going to find in the league right now," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Twins general manager Terry Ryan has long been one of the most respected executives in the game. But one of his biggest mistakes came in 2002 when he released Ortiz, who had just appeared to start putting things together in his sixth big league season. The move is still haunting Ryan and the Twins 11 years later. Ortiz signed with the Red Sox, and promptly blossomed into one of the most feared hitters in the American League, a central figure in Bostons two World Series championships and the kind of slugger the Twins have been searching for ever since. He wears No. 34 in honour of the late Kirby Puckett and seems to take particular delight in hammering his former team. Ortiz is 19 for 37 with five homers and 16 RBIs at Target Field. "The one guy we say dont let beat us is David Ortiz," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said.dddddddddddd "Theyve got a lot of really good hitters over there, but we told them to stay away from this guy, dont give in to him. And he keeps sending souvenirs." Diamond laboured from the start, falling behind 3-0 after 19 pitches. Ortiz jumped on a flat slider and drove it into the seats in right-centre field for his sixth homer of the season. Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster wasnt much better. He walked four hitters in the second and third innings to load the bases in both frames, but the right-hander got Mauer to chase a breaking ball down and away to escape in the second and then got Aaron Hicks to fly out to deep right field to end the third. Dempster needed a staggering 127 pitches to get through just 4 2-3 innings. He gave up five runs on eight hits and walked six. "I just couldnt get consistency with any of my pitches," Dempster said. "I kept missing away with it. I really didnt have any of my pitches tonight." Down 7-5 in the sixth, the Twins loaded the bases again. But Pedroia made a nifty over-the-shoulder catch in shallow right field, then whirled and easily threw out Ryan Doumit at home on a major base-running blunder. Ortiz and Nava busted the game open with two-run homers in the seventh, giving Ortiz his 40th career multi-homer game. "Hes swinging the bat great right now," Pedroia said. "Everything he hits is hard. He looks great up there." NOTES: The Red Sox played without OFs Shane Victorino and Stephen Drew because of back injuries. Farrell said both were hopeful of playing on Sunday. ... Mauer returned to the lineup after missing Friday night with a stiff back. ... Diamond and Dempster were facing each other for the second time this season, becoming the first pair of Canadian starters to meet more than once in a season since at least 1920, according to the Red Sox. ... The Twins will send LHP Pedro Hernandez (2-0, 5.79) to the mound on Sunday for the finale against Boston RHP John Lackey (1-4, 4.05). Lackey is looking to bounce back from a poor start against Tampa Bay, when he gave up five runs in 4 1-3 innings. ' ' '
