Pierce returns to practice: 'I feel good'

Paul Pierce returned to practice on Friday after sitting out Thursday's session to rest his strained left Achilles injury that he suffered in the first quarter of Game 2 in Miami on Tuesday. He said that he's feeling better after receiving treatment that included ice, massage and electric stim.

"I actually feel good about this," Pierce said. "Once you turn 30 your body comes back a little bit slower. I was able to come back into the game that night and really had no further ill effects from it after the game or yesterday or today. I’m very confident."

Garnett: 'An all-in mentality' for C's

Speaking before Celtics practice on Friday, Kevin Garnett laid out the sense of what the C's are facing down 2-0 to Miami in their Eastern Conference playoff series. "The whole thing’s been a challenge," Garnett said. "No one said at the beginning it was going to be easy. No one said it was going to be a simple process. I think our mentality is an all-in mentality, starting with tomorrow’s game." 

Garnett didn't mince words about the Celtics' predicament. Since he arrived they have never trailed 2-0 in a playoff series. "We’re taking their best shot. I still don’t think we’ve played our best basketball and we’ve got to do that," he said. "We can’t just come out here and talk about it. We’re not on the white sands of the beach [any] more. We’re back in the jungle. Hopefully that’ll do some good for us."

Millar on M&M: Who is Sox' leader?

MLB Network analyst Kevin Millar made his weekly appearance on the Mut & Merloni show Friday morning to talk about the Red Sox and news from around baseball.

John Lackey had another rough outing Thursday, getting shelled in the Red Sox' 11-0 loss to the Angels. "Obviously, his velocity's down," Millar said. "He's not pitching at the 93, the 94 probably that we've been accustomed to seeing. … He's definitely down 3-4 miles an hour than probably what he's accustomed to pitching at. I think that's what makes his breaking stuff average."

Millar said it's clear that there's a health issue with the big right-hander. "Lackey dominated anybody when he's right. That's pure on the truth," he said. "I think right now he's not able to finish guys. It's almost like he's not able to — you get 0-2, 1-2 and pound that 94 mile an hour heater in that I used to see from him."

Added Millar: "The fact...

Lowell to undergo another surgery on hip

After initially thinking he would postpone any further surgical procedures on his right hip, former Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell will undergo a 'resurfacing' of his already surgically-repaired hip in New York Friday. The operation won't include a hip replacement, which does figure to be a possibility for Lowell at some point.

The 37-year-old first experienced problems with the body part when suffering a torn labrum during the 2008 season, ultimately forcing Lowell to have surgery following the season. He continued to experience problems with the injury throughout the '09 and '10 seasons, eventually retiring after playing in 73 games last season.

Back in February, Lowell talked to WEEI.com about the challenges he has faced since the end of the '10 season.

Jets' Ryan: Belichick 'best coach'

Jets coach Rex Ryan continues his media tour to promote his new book, "Play Like You Mean It," and the Patriots-Jets rivalry continues to be a popular topic. The New York Post reports that during a taping of the YES Network show "CenterStage" on Thursday, Ryan talked about his off-field strategy leading up to the divisional playoff victory over the Patriots.

Ryan explained that he wanted to get the discussion away from the team's previous regular-season meeting, a 45-3 Patriots victory, and that's why he made comments that the game was about him and Bill Belichick.

"That whole week, I never wanted it to be about that 45-3 game," Ryan said. "And I knew if I didn't do something, [the media] would be talking about it with our players, and I never wanted that negative thought to creep into their minds.

"There certainly was a method behind it, and I told [Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum] after we win...
