Richardson: 'Paul's a great NBA player'

A week after proclaiming, "I don't like them and they know it," Quentin Richardson expressed a different opinion about Paul Pierce following the Celtics' elimination of the Heat in Game 5. “Paul’s a great NBA player,” he told WEEI.com. “That’s the only opinion that really matters, his NBA game. He’s a good NBA player.” Richardson also added, “I’ve always respected his game, never not. I mean, he’s an All-Star, he’s a Finals MVP, he has his accolades, and he well deserves them. I take my hat off to him as a basketball player. Nothing will change that.” Visit the Green Street Blog for more.

Celtics open Round 2 in Cleveland Saturday

The Celtics will have three days to get ready for their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Celtics will open the series at Quicken Loans Arena on Saturday in Game 1, with Game 2 set for Monday night in Cleveland. 

 

The series then returns to Boston for Games 3 and 4 next week. Dates have not been finalized due to the uncertainty regarding the availability of TD Garden since the second round opponent for the Bruins has yet to be determined. 

 

This will be the second time in three years the Celtics and Cavaliers have met in the playoffs, as Boston won a thrilling Game 7 in 2008 at the Garden in the Eastern Conference semis en route to the NBA title. The two teams split their four meetings this season, with each team winning once on the other's home court.

Embree called up, Castro sent down

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after his team's 2-1 win over the Blue Jays Tuesday night that lefty reliever Alan Embree was being called up to the team, with Fabio Castro headed back to Triple A Pawtucket. The Red Sox still have to make a corresponding roster move to fit Embree on to the 40-man roster.

 

Embree had pitched in eight games with the PawSox, allowing three runs on two hits, striking out six and walking five over 7 1/3 innings. He had faced 14 left-handed hitters, not surrendering a hit and just one walk.

 

Embree had the option of opting out of his contract with the Red Sox if he wasn't placed on the 25-man roster by Friday. Castro was with the Red Sox for just one day, having joined the team as insurance in the bullpen, with Scott Atchison having been sent to Pawtucket.

Buchholz saves the day for Sox

TORONTO -- With the Red Sox bullpen depleted, Clay Buchholz came through with an eight-inning, one-run outing in leading the Sox to a 2-1 win over the Blue Jays Tuesday night at Rogers Centre. Ramon Ramirez got the save with a scoreless ninth inning. The Sox took the lead for good in the eighth inning when Jays reliever Kevin Gregg walked pinch-hitter Mike Lowell with two outs and the bases loaded. Lowell was pinch-hitting for David Ortiz, who had been 0-for-2 with a walk leading up to the at-bat. Dustin Pedroia and Victor Martinez both had back-to-back, one-out singles to get the rally going in the eighth. For a complete recap go to 'Closing Time' at The Full Count Blog.

Beating the Heat: C's advance to 2nd round

Ray Allen drilled five of his six three-point attempts and scored a team-high 24 and Paul Pierce added 21 as the Celtics beat the Miami Heat, 96-86, Tuesday night at TD Garden to win their first-round series, 4-1. Allen made his first four shots of the second half as the Celtics built a 21-point lead in the third quarter. Rajon Rondo had 16 points and 12 assists. 

 

Miami closed to within five points at the start of the fourth quarter and drew to within four early in the fourth. But Glen Davis converted a field goal and free throw for a pivotal three-point play that turned the tide in Boston's favor. After scoring 46 points in Miami's win in Game 4, Dwyane Wade scored 31 but he was the only Heat starter in double figures.
