The home team may have lost every game in this series to this point, but it feels like the Celtics have a true home-court advantage tonight. Crowd is LOUD.

Yankees 3, Red Sox 1: Welcome to the rivalry, Aaron Judge. In his first game ever at Fenway Park, the Yankees' rookie slugger clocked a homer against reigning Cy Young winner Rick Porcello and dove into the stands to catch a foul ball. Red Sox muster only three hits against Pedro Martinez protege Luis Severino and lose for fourth time in six games.

Isaiah Thomas switched both his headband and shoes at halftime. The other shoes/headband clearly did not have enough buckets.

Aroldis Chapman, who has not allowed a run in 7 appearances this season (6.1IP, 3H, 2BB, 9K), warms up in the bullpen. Yankees lead the Red Sox 3-0, top of the 9th inning.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The lessons of Pedro Martinez continue to payoff for the Yankees Luis Severino. Severino, who worked with the former Red Sox great this winter in the Dominican, threw seven scoreless innings, allowing six hits, striking out six and walking two. He left with the Yankees up, 3-0, in the eighth.

New Patriots Brandin Cooks and Stephon Gilmore (and QB Jimmy Garoppolo, too ) at TD Garden for Game 5 of Celtics vs. Bulls.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Celtics ended the first quarter on an 11-2 run, including outscoring the Bulls by six after Isaiah Thomas went to the bench. Chicago led by as much as eight but Boston up 23-20 after 12 minutes.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Celtics couldn't make a 3 early in the quarter, but Avery Bradley gives them spark on both ends. So underrated. Boston leads after first despite going 3-12 from deep.
