The Celtics lost Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals in double overtime against the Raptors 125-122 on Thursday.

Marcus Smart posted a triple-double and Jaylen Brown once again led Boston with 31 points, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Toronto. Game 7 tips off at 9 p.m. on Friday night.

And the Red Sox are back this evening, facing the Rays at 6:40 p.m at Tropicana Field.

Sean Payton on TB12: Ahead of the Saints’ Week 1 clash with the Buccaneers, New Orleans coach Sean Payton was asked about Tom Brady. Along with praising Brady’s longevity and storied career, Payton referenced the former Patriot’s TB12 products.

“Tom’s got that whole TB12 line, and he had me buying the water in the offseason, and it was fantastic,” Payton told reporters on Wednesday.

Still, Payton maintains that Brady has injected a degree of gamesmanship in how his company treats the rival NFC South coach.

“Only [problem] is, the emails don’t stop coming,” Payton added. “And I told him, ‘Hey, can you stop sending me emails?’ And then he purposely went to the company and now they’re doubled. Every morning I wake up, I’m gonna erase about 15, maybe 12 emails.”

Brady will make his Buccaneers debut on Sunday in New Orleans against the Saints at 4:25 p.m.
