Ainge: C's view Game 6 as 'must win'

Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on The Big Show on Thursday afternoon, just hours before the Celtics and Hawks play Game 6 of their first-round series at TD Garden. Ainge was first asked about Game 5, an 87-86 Hawks win that saw the Celtics fail to execute offensively down the stretch. 

"We didn't play well, I didn't think," said Ainge. "We had good spurts to get back in the game. It probably wasn't a game we deserved, although we had chances."

As for Game 6, Ainge expects the most intense game of the series to date from both Atlanta and Boston.

"I think both teams view this as a must win," Ainge said. "You have to. Obviously you have another shot at it in Game 7, but I think our guys will approach this game tonight, and Doc will coach it, like it's the end of the season type of game, elimination game. And that's how they'll coach it and play it."

Valentine: Beckett golf outing not a concern

Speaking before the Red Sox series opener against the Indians, Sox manager Bobby Valentine said he had talked to Josh Beckett about the pitcher's May 3 golf outing, and didn't have any concerns regarding the pitcher's participation.

There had been some controversy surrounding the outing since it was a day after Beckett had been scratched from his scheduled May 5 start due to a right lat strain.

"I talked to Josh. He's ready to go, feels great and I'm looking forward to the performance," said Valentine of Beckett, who was slated to start Thursday night. "I've never seen a pitcher get hurt playing golf."

When asked if he could understand some of the concern regarding the golf outing because of Beckett's reported ailment, Valentine said, "I didn't think he was injured when he was skipped."

Lineup: Sox call up Nava, put him in left

The Red Sox called up outfielder Daniel Nava for Thursday's game against the Indians. After a slow start, Nava has been among the hottest hitters in Triple-A over roughly the past three weeks.

In his last 16 games, he leads the International League with a .429 average, ranks second with a .484 OBP, third with a .696 slugging mark and third with a 1.181 OPS. In that span, he is 24-for-56 with two homers, seven doubles and a triple.

Though Nava was used primarily against left-handed pitchers when with the Sox in 2010, this year, he's hitting well against pitchers of both handedness. Against righties, he has a line of .328/.418/.552/.970, with marks of .286/.429/.393/.821 against southpaws.

The team optioned right-hander Clayton Mortensen, who has allowed just one run in 9 1/3 innings spanning three appearances while striking out 12 and walking none, to Triple-A. Justin Thomas was removed from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for Nava.
