Mannix on M&M: C's-Thunder in NBA finals

Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix joined Mut & Merloni on Monday to talk about the Celtics-76ers Eastern Conference semifinal series, as the teams prepare for Monday night's tiebreaking Game 5 at TD Garden.

While Mannix said the Sixers are capable of winning this series, he sees the Celtics headed to the NBA finals and a "toss-up" against the Thunder.

"I'm leaning towards Oklahoma City and Boston," he said of his finals matchup. "I think the Celtics will get by whoever comes out of this next series just because of the [Chris] Bosh injury. I think even with the mismatch [up front] against Indiana, I think Boston's experience will be big for them. And Oklahoma City's in a for a dogfight with San Antonio. They played horribly against them in the regular season. ... I think Oklahoma City's youth will prevail in that series."

If the Celtics survive the Sixers, Mannix said they might be better off with the Heat...

Bradley 'game-time decision' for Game 5

WALTHAM -- The Celtics reported that all players were on hand and accounted for during Monday morning's shootaround at the team's practice facility. 

The team's official website tweeted just before shootaround ended that Avery Bradley (left shoulder) was a "game-time decision" for Monday's Game 5 against the Sixers at TD Garden. 

Bradley did not practice on Sunday after suffering a recurrence of his left shoulder injury during the third quarter of Friday's loss in Philadelphia. 

If Bradley were not available for Game 5, it's assumed Ray Allen would return to the starting lineup for the first time in the playoffs. Allen hasn't started since April 4 against the Spurs, coming off the bench in the last four games he played in the regular season and all eight games to date in the playoffs.

Mashup: Rangers coach criticizes Devils, refs

Rangers coach John Tortorella is not happy with what he perceives to be embellishing on the part of the Devils in the Eastern Conference finals. Tortorella was attempting to defend Rangers forward Brandon Prust, who received a one-game suspension for his elbow to the head of Anton Volchenkov during New York's 3-0 victory in Saturday's Game 3. The Devils defenseman went down the ice clutching his head but eventually got up and did not miss a shift.

"We tell our players, 'Don't stay down on the ice. Get up," Tortorella said during a Sunday press conference. "I'll leave it at that. If we want to start discussing officials with the media, I have a long list here."

Tortorella then went on to complain about picks he said the Devils are running during power players as well as two questionable hits from Devils players in Game 3.

Informed of Tortorella's comments, Devils coach Pete DeBoer responded: "Comical."

Report: Sox players held 'heated' meeting

According to a report from Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, David Ortiz called a players-only meeting on May 11, a day after Josh Beckett allowed seven runs in 2 1/3 innings in a loss to the Indians at Fenway Park. 

The meeting was described as "heated" by one player, as hitters reportedly told pitchers to "step it up." 

The Sox -- 13-19 at the time of the meeting -- won their next five games and since the meeting have won seven of nine.

Daisuke skips start after receiving shot

According to Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine -- speaking after Sunday's 5-1 win over the Phillies -- Daisuke Matsuzaka won't make what was scheduled to be his final rehab start Tuesday, as the pitcher received an injection in his ailing right trapezius muscle.

Because of the ailment, the Red Sox will be allowed to restart the pitcher's rehab clock after he sits out seven days. Matsuzaka's rehab assignment was slated to end Wednesday. According to Major League Baseball rules, the only way a player's rehab assignment can be extended is if it can be proven to the league that there is a physical issue which has to be dealt with. 

"He got another injection today in the right trap that's been bothering him for quite a while," Valentine told reporters, "and we've got to make sure that's 100 percent before he's going out there again."

When speaking with the media Friday, Matsuzaka suggested his right elbow was in good health...
