Satch on D&H: Bench is C's only edge

Former Celtics player and coach Satch Sanders joined the Dale & Holley show Friday to talk about the NBA finals. Sanders said Doc Rivers' use of his bench in Game 4 Thursday night reminded him of Red Auberbach's strategy during the Celtics' dynasty in the 1960s, of which Sanders was a key part.

 

"It was consistent with Auerbach to use that second unit when games were extremely tight or when we were losing," said Sanders, who won eight NBA titles as a player and briefly coached the C's in the late 1970s. "Basically, he'd change that whole group up, and we'd get back in many a game. ... That's a good role to play if you've got that kind of bench, and certainly Rivers has that kind of bench, and he's clearly not afraid to use it."

 

Sanders said that because the Celtics and Lakers starters match...

Legler on D&C: Nate's energy priceless

ESPN NBA analyst Tim Legler joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about the NBA finals, following the Celtics' Game 4 win Thursday night. "Last night was the quintessential Celtics defense that we've come to know out of this team for the last three years." Legler said, noting that the officials helped the C's by letting them play.

 

Legler said Nate Robinson's performance off the bench makes him wonder even more why the former Knick hasn't seen more playing time. "I've kind of been scratching my head, going back about a month, as to why he wasn't regularly in the rotation down the stretch of the season and in the postseason," Legler said.

 

"One thing I love about Nate Robinson, he never thinks the stage is too big," Legler added. "He believes every time he's on the court he's the best player on the floor. I have a lot of respect for guys that don't care about the...

Jets make drastic cuts to PSL prices

According to an Associated Press report, the New York Jets have reduced prices up to 50 percent on 18,000 personal seat licenses, incuding 9,000 of which that are unsold, in an effort to sell out the new Meadowlands Stadium before the season opens on Sept. 13.

 

Lower end-zone and mezzanine end-zone seats will be dropped from $5,000 to $2,500. Seats in the lower-sideline section will be cut from $15,000 to $10,000. Fans who already purchased seats will receive refunds.

 

Last month, owner Woody Johnson said he was confident the Jets would sell out the new stadium before the opener and avoid home games being blacked out.

 

"We said a few weeks ago that there would be no blackouts and the reason why is we're going to do what it takes to sell out," said Jets executive vice president for business operations Matt Higgins, who insisted this is not a panic move. "We think it makes a lot more sense...

Pedroia: 'My knee hurts. But I'll be fine'

CLEVELAND -- Speaking after the Red Sox' 8-7, series finale loss to the Indians Thursday night at Progressive Field, Dustin Pedroia said that his right knee is bothering him, but he plans on playing through it. Pedroia wore a knee brace for the first time, during the Sox' walk-off loss. "My knee hurts. But I’ll be fine. I don’t weigh that much, I don’t carry around a lot of weight. I’ll find a way to play through it." Pedroia originally hurt his knee May 15 when sliding into home in Detroit. Since the game against the Tigers, he has gone on to hit .189 (18-for-95), although he did claim his first two hits of the four-game series with the Indians Thursday night. "I'll heal while I play," he said. For more on the Red Sox, see the team page by clicking here.
