James: 'I won't regret Game 7' vs. Celtics

LeBron James said he doesn't "really get too far in sports talk radio or anything like that too much." That's probably smart, since none of the noise would have been all that positive over the past week. That is, until his performance in Game 6.

"Well, it was a matter of too much LeBron," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers after his team's 97-78 loss on their home floor. "He was absolutely sensational -- made every shot, set the tone for their whole team. I thought he gave them comfort."

Imagine that, comfort from James in the Heat's biggest game of the season. After all, Wilt Chamberlain numbers from the reigning NBA MVP like 45 points (19-26 FG), 15 rebounds and five assists will do that for a team.

"I think what fuels him is this moment, and the moment defines you," said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. "We've been through a lot in the last two years, and I think we've all learned how to...

Bard allows three runs in one-inning outing

PAWTUCKET, R.I. -- In his first appearance since being demoted to Triple-A Pawtucket, Daniel Bard allowed three runs over his only inning of work while facing the Indianapolis Indians at McCoy Stadium Friday night.

Bard, whose fastball topped out at 96 mph, but sat around 93-94 mph, finished throwing 25 pitches, 16 for strikes. The righty hit two batters, allowed a pair of hits, while striking out two.

Pitching out of the wind-up to start the game, Bard hit Indians' leadoff man Chase d'Arnaud with his second pitch, a 95 mph fastball. He then allowed Gorkys Hernandez to place a bloop single into right field, coming on a slider.

Bard loaded the bases by hitting another batter, this time Indianapolis' No. 3 hitter Starling Marte. After a fielder's choice groundout to shortstop by Jeff Clement, scoring the game's first run, Bard came back and struck out former Red Sox infielder Yamaico Navarro swinging on a slider. The starter then, however,...

Doc, Celtics planning to 'pack for a week'

The message on the dry erase board in the Celtics locker room after Game 6 was simple: "Pack for a week."

Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals is Sunday in Miami. Games 1 and 2 of the NBA finals would be on the road next week, should the C's make their third trip in five years.

"The whole locker room was down," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers after the 98-79 loss to the Heat in Boston, "but you can see their resolve in the locker room. They're not just going to pack for [Saturday]. They're going to bring suits for Tuesday, and they're going to bring suits for Thursday. And that's the way we're planning to do it."

After watching his season come to an end on the parquet in 2010 and 2012, LeBron James wasn't going out like that again. He scored 45 points (19-26 FG) on one end and held Paul Pierce to nine (4-18 FG) on the other.

"He'll bounce back," added Rivers. "Paul is a big-game player....

Pierce: C's 'been about adversity all year'

In the wake of a shocking 98-79 loss to LeBron James and the Miami Heat, Paul Pierce sounded a philosophical tone about the prospects for Game 7 Saturday night in Miami.

“This team has been about adversity all year long," Pierce said. "So, this is not going to be [anything] new. It's been tough for us all year long to get to the point where we would be at, and why wouldn’t it be tough now? Winning is hard. Trying to get to the finals is hard. And this is as hard as it gets, and I think we are prepared for it.”

As clutch as Pierce was at the end of Game 5 in Miami, Pierce was ice cold all night in Game 6. He finished 4-for-18 from the field, including 0-for-6 from 3-point range. The Celtics captain scored just nine points in 31 minutes while James put up 45 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in 45 minutes to lead the Heat to a Game 7.

"He hit a lot of shots that he hasn't been hitting all series," Pierce said...

Conflicting reports on new deal for Gronk

There are conflicting reports about a new contract for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
