Ravens coach John Harbaugh took a bit of a jab at the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick in an interview on 98 Rock Radio in Baltimore Tuesday.
Harbaugh, whom Belichick recommended to the Ravens prior to his 2008 hiring, was asked about the urge to bend the rules. Here's what he had to say:
"In the end everything is brought before the light of day when it's all said and done. ... So what happens is, even the thing in New England and the thing ... No matter whether those things had any impact on whether they won their championships or not, they got asterisks now. It's been stained. So to me it's never worth it.
"You've got to figure out ways to use the rules to your advantage, you've got to figure out ways to make the most of everything, we've got new work rules here as far as what we can do and what we can't do with our players, we're going to make the most of it and what we're finding is, man, in a way we can do...
The NBA announced Tuesday morning that Scott Foster, Ed Malloy and Scott Wall will be the three officials for Game 2 of the Celtics-Hawks series on Tuesday night in Atlanta.
Malloy has recent postseason history with the Celtics, having ejected Paul Pierce from Game 1 of last year's Eastern Conference second-round series against the Heat for taunting Dwyane Wade. The decision to eject Pierce was a controversial one, with many in the national media believing that Malloy significantly overreacted in his actions.

Following the Knicks' 104-94 loss to the Heat in Game 2 of their first-round series Monday night in Miami, Amar'e Stoudemire took out his frustration on a glass case housing a fire extinguisher. The result was a cut on Stoudemire's left hand that might prevent the forward from playing in Game 3.
Tweeted Stoudemire after he left the arena with his hand wrapped and his arm in a sling: I am so mad at myself right now, I want to apologize to the fans and my team, not proud of my actions, headed home for a new start.
Stoudemire was treated in the locker room by paramedics. While the Knicks did not immediately rule out the player for the next game, the general feeling was that the injury would make it difficult for him to return.
"You never want to hear anyone gets hurt," Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. "Hopefully he gets better. We want all their guns on the court."

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz punctuated one of the best months of his career by blasting a pair of homers (both off left-hander Tom Milone, marking the first time in his career that Ortiz has gone deep twice in the same game against a lefty) and going 2-for-3 with a walk. He finished April with a .405 average (2nd in the majors, 1st in the AL), .457 OBP (T-3rd, T-1st), .726 slugging mark (3rd, 2nd) and 1.184 OPS (2nd, 1st). He led the team with six homers and 20 RBI in the month, playing a significant role in helping the Sox emerge from their 1-5 start to finish the month by winning seven of eight and 10 of 16.
"David’s a star of stars right now," said manager Bobby Valentine. "It’s hard to throw a strike by him. He’s using all fields. He’s seeing the ball extremely well. I know it’s the old cliché, but he gets two balls, no strikes, it doesn’t even bother him to take because he’s very...
David Ortiz launched a pair of home runs while Mike Aviles and Darnell McDonald also went deep in support of Clay Buchholz as the Red Sox overwhelmed the hapless Athletics, 11-6, Monday night at Fenway in the opener of a three-game series. For Ortiz, it was the 36th multi-homer game with the Red Sox, moving him past Jim Rice for second on the club's all-time list. He trails only Ted Williams (37) in Red Sox history. The Red Sox won their seventh in eight tries to move again to the .500 mark at 11-11 on the season.
Buchholz (3-1) was sharp for the first six innings. He had five strikeouts and needed just 72 pitches. He allowed only one run. But then, Buchholz lost it quickly in the seventh. He labored through 27 pitches and his night ended on a sour note when he shook off catcher Kelly Shoppach three times and left a curveball over the plate that former Red Sox right fielder Josh Reddick hit to right for a three-run homer. Buchholz was pulled by Bobby...
