Garnett: No regrets over Game 1 flap

WALTHAM — Kevin Garnett does not regret his actions during Game 1 of the Celtics-Heat playoffs series, he said following practice on Sunday. He was ejected after receiving two technical fouls during a fourth quarter altercation with Quentin Richardson.

 

“No, not at all, not at all, not at all,” he said. “I would hope that if I was hurt or if I was down in that position, someone would at least give me some space to sort of recover or gather myself. That’s the only thing I was asking for. Nothing more, nothing less than that.”

Garnett has yet to hear a ruling from the NBA on the incident which began when Richardson approached him and Paul Pierce as Pierce lay in front of the Heat bench.

“It’s what it is,” he said. “Listen man, I would do that if Doc, if somebody I cared about, I tend to, I was taught to help a teammate and that’s what it is. If I have to...

Lester gets career strikeout No. 500

Red Sox starter Jon Lester caught Rays designated hitter Willie Aybar looking at a 93 mph fastball for his 500th career strikeout in the top of the fourth inning. Lester struck out the side in the first, and now has five strikeouts through four innings.

Noah rips KG: 'He's a dirty player'

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah ripped Kevin Garnett Sunday morning after the dust-up between Garnett and Miami's Quentin Richardson in Game 1 of their playoff series. "He's unbelievable, that guy," Noah said to reporters in Cleveland where the Bulls are getting ready to play Game 2 against the Cavaliers. "I'm gonna say it: He's a dirty player, man. That's messed up." Noah and Garnett have a history. Before  Game 7 of last season's playoffs, Noah told WEEI.com that he was not fan of Garnett, even though he was his favorite player growing up.

Julien: 'Adversity has helped us'

The ups and downs of the Bruins season may have actually helped them get ready for playoff hockey, according to coach Claude Julien. Julien, who spoke to the media on Sunday after practice at TD Garden, said that everything that has happened this year might actually benefit his team in this tough first-round matchup with Buffalo.

 

"It's certainly helped," Julien said of the adversity this season. "The fact that we went through a lot of that stuff certainly builds character and resiliency. There's not doubt it's helped us get through the tough times and it's made us a better hockey club."

 

The Bruins know all too well what the injury bug can do to a team — see Marc Savard — and the bug might actually be hitting their opponent at the right time. Buffalo left winger Thomas Vanek's status is still not known for Game 3, but Julien said he isn't going to worry about the other team's players....
