Mashup: A's will keep Manny in Triple-A

Manny Ramirez is eligible to return from his 50-game suspension Wednesday, his 40th birthday, but the Athletics announced Monday night that the former Red Sox slugger will instead continue to play for Triple-A Sacramento.

Assistant general manager David Forst said the A's "will continue to monitor Manny's progress on a day-to-day basis in hopes of bringing him to Oakland just as soon as he is ready to contribute at the major league level."

Ramirez is 8-for-32 with no extra-base hits and seven strikeouts in nine games at Triple-A. He had two singles Monday and sounded encouraged. "The more pitches I see, the better I get," he said.

Ramirez, who hasn't appeared in a major league game since last April with the Rays, preached patience and said he wants to make the most of this opportunity to return to the game.

"When you're doing something for so long, almost 19 years, and you don't have it, you're going to miss...

Allen: 'It's like a battle within myself'

MIAMI -- Ray Allen is fighting himself and the bone spurs in his ankle. After missing six of his seven shots and four of his seven free throws, he seemed to be searching for answers.

"I believe you guys know what I’m dealing with," Allen said. "There’s nothing really to talk about. It’s like a battle within myself that I have to try and win. You always talk, if it was the playoffs would you play? It’s the playoffs."

A career 89 percent free throw shooter, Allen is shooting just 60 percent from the free throw line this postseason.

"I’m just trying to find my balance the best way I know how," he said. "I feel good over it, I just don’t have a great rhythm right now."

Allen was the first player out of the locker room at halftime and spent several minutes on the court by himself shooting free throws.

Asked if his free throw problems were related to his...

Doc on tech: 'Worst I've ever had'

Doc Rivers made his displeasure with his technical foul very clear following a Game 1 loss to the Heat at American Airlines Arena in South Florida. Rivers was whistled for a technical foul by referee Ed Malloy with 3:13 left in the second quarter when he uttered the words, "Come on, Ed."

"I know mine wasn't [deserved]," Rivers said. "I don't know how long I've been in the league, but that has to rank as the worst I've ever had. I would have liked to have earned it."

Malloy called that technical on Rivers and then called one on Rajon Rondo midway through the third after Rondo and Shane Battier became entangled after a Brandon Bass basket. Rondo appeared to push Battier away, trying to get loose. Earlier in the game, referee Danny Crawford called a tech on Ray Allen after Allen was demonstrative after a call on him. Crawford then whistled Garnett for a delay of game technical for tapping the ball out of bounds after...

Foul smell: C's lose Game 1 in Miami

LeBron James scored 32 points and hauled down 13 rebounds while the Celtics shot just 39 percent from the field as the Heat beat the Celtics, 93-79, Monday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Kevin Garnett had 23 points and 10 rebounds, Rajon Rondo scored 16 points and Paul Pierce was the only other Boston player in double figures with 12 points as the Celtics look toward Wednesday night and a chance to even the series.

The game was marred by controversial officiating as five technical fouls were called on the Celtics, three coming in a seven-minute span of the second quarter. The Celtics also were brutal at the free throw line, missing 10-of-21 from the line.  

In the first quarter, the Celtics looked like a team that finished a grueling seven-game series 48 hours earlier when they came out and scored just 11 points, as LeBron James outscored Boston by himself, 13-11, helping Miami to a 21-11 lead after 12 minutes.

Doc: 'We've had a lot of stuff this year'

MIAMI -- Despite losing Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox to heart surgery and Avery Bradley and Jermaine O'Neal to season-ending surgeries, coach Doc Rivers said that his core group of players always believed it would get to the Eastern Conference finals.

"We’ve had a lot of stuff thrown at us this year, starting with Jeff Green. Then Chris Wilcox, Avery [Bradley], we’ve had a lot of stuff," Rivers said. "Paul [Pierce] started the season not right. Kevin [Garnett], not right to start the season. It would have been easy for them to think that, especially at All-Star break. Nothing was going right for us. This was grind season in a lot of ways, but it’s been an enjoyable one."

There were no surprises in the starting lineups or the inactive lists for both teams in the conference finals' opener Monday night. Chris Bosh remains out and the Heat are starting Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Shane Battier and...
