Mashup: Yankees sued over logo

A 63-year-old woman from Yonkers, N.Y., sued the Yankees, claiming her late uncle designed the team's top-hat logo in 1936. Tanit Buday claims then-Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert asked Kenneth Timur to make the design, long credited to sports artist Henry Alonzo "Lon" Keller. Yankees spokeswoman Alice McGillion said there's no proof of Buday's claim. "This is a wonderful country, where anybody can sue for anything, even when the allegations are over 70 years old," McGillion said.

Melo: 'We are playing our [butts] off'

After posting one of the great individual performances in Knicks playoff history and one of the best ever against the Celtics, Carmelo Anthony said he wasn't upset with the 96-93 loss that put his team in a 2-0 hole heading back to New York for Game 3 Friday.

He said he was more proud of his team for nearly pulling off the upset without two of their biggest stars. Anthony had 42 points and 17 rebounds to pick up the slack for Chauncey Billups - out with an injured left knee - and Amar'e Stoudemire - limited to the first half with bad back spasms.

"There were some things when you look back you say ‘We could have done this, we could have done that,'" Anthony said. "We could be up 2-0 if we did something right. For the most part, we are playing our [butts] off. We're playing great. For some guys, this is their first time in the playoffs and for them to be stepping up to the plate like that, taking on the challenge against a...

Anderson, A's shut down Red Sox

The Red Sox started their nine-game road trip on a negative note, dropping a 5-0 decision to the A's Tuesday night at Oakland Coliseum.

The Sox, who trailed by just a run heading into the eighth inning, were shut down by Oakland starter Brett Anderson. The lefty, who came into the meeting having gone 3-1 with a 2.61 ERA against the Red Sox, allowed just four hits while walking one and striking out eight in eight innings.

Red Sox starter John Lackey turned in his best outing of the season, holding Oakland to just one, first-inning run, while allowing only four hits over six innings. The righty struck out three and walked one in throwing 93 pitches.

The lone run against Lackey came when Coco Crisp stole his seventh base of the season after leading off the home half of the first with a single. The former Red Sox outfielder proceeded to move to third on a ground out on a Daric Barton ground out, and scored when David DeJesus' grounder to...

Amar'e: 'Hopefully ready' for Game 3

Knicks superstar power forward Amar'e Stoudemire couldn't have picked a worse time to experience back spasms for the first time in his career. After tweaking his back during a dunk in warmups, Stoudemire said he felt the twinge get worse during the first half.

He was limited to 2-of-9 shooting in 18 minutes and finished with just four points as the Knicks couldn't quite overcome his absence in a 96-93 loss to the Celtics Tuesday night at TD Garden. 

“I believe it happened in warmups," said Stoudemire, who had to stand for his postgame press conference because his back was still so tight. "I touched the top of the glass with my left hand and dunked it with my right. I think that’s when I felt it really get tight on me.

"I could hardly move. I was trying to play through it. Went to the trainers staff, was getting worked on there before the game, right before the national anthem I got up and stood up for the...

Pierce: 'We shouldn't be satisfied'

The Celtics were obviously pleased to come away with another close win over the Knicks to take a 2-0 lead in their first round playoff series, but they were also not happy with their play against a Knicks team that was without Chauncey Billups and Amar'e Stoudemire, who didn't play in the second half because of back spasms.

"It was really good to get the win but were disappointed with the way we played tonight," Paul Pierce said. "We gave up a big lead and I thought we should have pushed the lead. We shouldn’t be satisfied with the way we played tonight. We’ve got a lot of things to clean up. Hopefully we can play better when we get to New York." 

On Carmelo Anthony who scored 42 points, Pierce said, "He’s a great player as he showed tonight. He’s an incredible player. That’s why they pay him the big bucks."
