Brass knuckles: KG, Daniels key C's win

Rajon Rondo had 21 points and 10 assists while Marquis Daniels provided a key spark off the bench with nine points in 16 minutes to help the Celtics hold off the Heat, 101-91, in Game 3 Friday night at TD Garden. Kevin Garnett added 24 points and 11 rebounds while Paul Pierce chipped in with 23 as the Celtics cut the Heat lead in the Eastern Conference finals to 2-1 while improving to 7-1 at home in the playoffs this season.

LeBron James had 34 points while Dwyane Wade added 18 for the Heat, who lost for the first time since Game 3 of their series against the Pacers.  It was all James in the first quarter as he hit seven of his first nine shots and had 16 points in the opening period to lead the Heat out to a 28-22 lead. The Celtics were struggling badly with their transition defense and were getting beaten up the court after nearly every made basket. 

But Marquis Daniels and Keyon Dooling came into the game and provided a spark of...

Buchholz, Nava lift Red Sox over Jays

Clay Buchholz turned in his best outing of the season in leading the Red Sox to a 7-2 win over the Blue Jays, Friday night at Rogers Centre in Toronto. The victory drew the Sox even with the Jays, with both teams standing at 27-25 while sitting three games in back of first-place Tampa Bay.

Buchholz went eight innings in picking up the win, only allowing two solo home runs. The starter struck out a season-high seven, while finishing throwing strikes on 71 of his 108 pitches.

Offensively, the Red Sox were paced by Daniel Nava, who came away with his first four-hit game of his career. The outfielder finished with three doubles and three runs, while also claiming an RBI two-bagger. Adrian Gonzalez also contributed with his fifth three-hit game of the season.

The Sox' only home run came from David Ortiz, whose solo shot in the second inning against Toronto starter Henderson Alvarez gave the visitors a quick 1-0 lead. Alvarez, who had only allowed...

Prior joins PawSox as Iglesias hits DL

Pawtucket Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias has been placed on the Triple-A seven-day disabled list -- retroactive to May 29 -- due to a sore lower back.

Pitcher Mark Prior has been added to the PawSox' roster, replacing Iglesias, and will pitch out of the Pawtucket bullpen.

Iglesias was examined in Boston Thursday, with a team source telling WEEI.com that it isn't expected the shortstop's ailment will keep him out an extended period. The 22-year-old hasn't played since May 25 and is hitting .269 with a .317 on-base percentage and .634 OPS.

The 31-year-old Prior, who was signed by the Red Sox to a minor-league deal in early May, pitched out of the bullpen in the Yankees' minor league system in 2011 before succumbing to an arm injury.

The righty last pitched in the major leagues in 2006 with the Chicago Cubs, with his best season coming when he won 18 games to go with an 2.43 in '03 for the Cubs.

He was the second overall pitch in...

Chiarelli expects Thomas to sit out season
By: admin

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli confirmed earlier reports that Tim Thomas is contemplating sitting out the 2012-13 season, saying the goalie expressed his potential desire to skip next season when talking to the GM in early May.

Chiarelli explained that if such a scenario unfolds, the Bruins would be forced to suspend Thomas, which would still mean the team is saddled with the goalie's $5 million salary cap number. At the end of the season, the Bruins would then have the option of either extending the contract another year, or terminating the deal.

"Tim came to me toward the beginning of May through his agent and said that he is seriously considering taking the year off. The reasons why, I'm not exactly sure. He did give reasons regarding his family, which I obviously respect, to spend more time with his family. As of right now I'm operating under the premise that there is a strong possibility that he will be taking the year off and we...

Ainge: 'We've got other issues' than refs

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined The Big Show on Friday to talk about the Celtics' Eastern Conference finals series against the Heat. The series resumes with Game 3 Friday night at TD Garden.

There was a Yahoo! Sports report that Ainge had an intense discussion with NBA vice president of referee operations Joe Borgia following the Celtics' Game 2 loss, which included some questionable calls that went against the C's.

"I wouldn't say it was a heated conversation," Ainge said. "We actually weren't talking about the [Rajon] Rondo call or the [Paul] Pierce call or any of that stuff. We were talking about the way that the rule -- the breakaway rule, or the clear path rule -- is written. So, it was a discussion more on philosophy of where our game has gone on that interpretation and that rule specifically. But I would not call it a heated discussion. Joe and I have known each other for years and...
