LeBron: Out to ‘prove our doubters wrong’

LeBron James says he has already put his poor performance from Game 5 behind him and is focused on coming out aggressive in as the Cavaliers face elimination against the Celtics.

 

“It’s always about what have you done for me lately,” he said of the criticism prior Game 6. “I understand that and we understand that, so we’ve got to our best to go out there and prove our doubters wrong.”

 

James believes the Cavaliers can beat the Celtics if they find their shots and get one another open looks. Down 3-2, their gameplan is clear.

 

“We’re looking to win. That’s our only agenda, that’s the only thing we have to this point,” he said. “We’re on the brink of elimination so to me it’s all about aggression, trying to be aggressive, and putting our team in the position to win this game.”

Welker: Rehab 'going really well'

Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, who tore both the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his left knee in the regular-season finale against the Texans in Houston, said Thursday his rehab was “going really well,” but wouldn’t commit to a date for his return

In an interview with CBS Radio, he said there’s plenty of time between now and the start of the 2010 season, but he won’t push it before it’s ready.

“I’m going to return whenever I’m ready and whenever the doctors clear me,” said Welker, who also underwent shoulder surgery this offseason. “I’m just steadily going about my business and do the best I can. The season is still pretty far away — we’ve got some time. I’m just going to continue to work hard and do the best I can and get back on the field as soon as I can. That’s just my plan of action and whenever...

B's Chara calls for 'everything we have'

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins had an afternoon practice at Ristuccia Arena on Thursday as they prepare to take on the Flyers in the series-deciding Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Friday night. Boston enters the game having lost three straight and in danger of becoming one of only three teams in the history of North American professional sports to lose a seven-game series after winning the first three games. Captain Zdeno Chara was asked after practice what it would take for the Bruins to escape a notation in the history books.

 

"Everything. We have to throw everything we have," Chara said. "It is obviously disappointing to be leading 3-0 and be in this position, but we still have one shot to close it."

Lineup changes coming for Cavs?

Reports out of the Cavaliers shootaround this morning indicate that Mike Brown is considering lineup changes for Game 6 tonight at the Garden. Plain Dealer beat writer Brian Windhorst noted that Brown is unlikely to change his starting five, but he brings up the one radical move that Brown has left: playing LeBron James at point guard.

Milbury on D&H: Flyers' comeback no surprise

NESN Bruins analyst Mike Milbury called in to the Dale & Holley show Thursday morning to talk about the Bruins-Flyers series and look at Friday's Game 7. Milbury said it's important to "put this in perspective" and not be shocked that Philadelphia was able to claw back in the series. "It was a surprise to me that it was 3-0," Milbury said. "It was great for Boston, and they were an overtime goal away from taking the thing. But it doesn't surprise me that Philadelphia now has come back to even the series. As in all Game 7s, it's going to be a coin toss. I expect that the Bruins will rebound. They do have a great record in the spring at home, to offset the miserable record they had during the regular season — so I don't know how you figure that out. But it's going to take a great effort from Tuukka Rask. I would suspect special teams could play a huge role in this thing tomorrow. But it's a coin toss."
