Celtics recall Joseph from D-League

The Celtics on Friday recalled second-round draft pick Kris Joseph from the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League.

Joseph provides needed depth for a team that has back-to-back games this weekend (Friday vs. Trail Blazers, Saturday at Milwaukee). The Celtics are without Rajon Rondo (two-game suspension) while Jeff Green (knee) and Chris Wilcox (sickness) are questionable.

Joseph, a 6-foot-7 forward from Syracuse, averaged 25.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals in two D-League games.

Celtics recall Joseph from Red Claws

Following Rajon Rondo's two-game suspension, the Celtics recalled Kris Joseph from their NBA Development League affiliate.

The 6-foot-7 rookie forward averaged 25.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 block in two games while on assignment for the Red Claws. The C's second-round pick made his NBA debut on Nov. 2, playing just three minutes against the Bucks.

Joseph provides reinforcements for the Celtics, who play back-to-back games this weekend, hosting the Blazers on Friday and traveling to Milwaukee the following night. Rondo's suspension combined with Avery Bradley's injury and Darko Milicic's waiver had left only 10 players available for duty.

Evans on D&C: Saban is no Belichick

NFL Network analyst Heath Evans, who played for the Patriots and Dolphins during his NFL career, joined Dennis & Callahan on Friday morning and talked about Sunday's matchup between New England and Miami.

"Any time you can make Josh McDaniels and [Tom Brady] one-dimensional, you've got a chance," Evans said. "That's the one thing that Miami's been decent at all year, is stopping the run. It's in their sub packages, when their base defense isn't on the field and you've got two linebackers and all your DBs out, they can still manage to stop those shotgun runs and stop the balance of what [Bill Belichick] has got going on in New England -- you do, you have a chance.

"Ryan Tannehill is gifted enough not to give games away. And he's smart enough and he's ahead of the curve just enough probably to be OK vs. the stuff he's going to see on the back end of New England defense, as well as handle their pressure up front.

Mashup: NBA irate at Spurs for sitting stars

Spurs coach Greg Popovich sent home four of the team's top players before Thursday's night's game against the Heat in Miami. Popovich acknowledged the decision was so that the players could rest as the team played its sixth road game in nine nights (and fourth in five).

It didn't sit well with NBA commissioner David Stern.

"I apologize to all NBA fans," Stern said in a statement. "This was an unacceptable decision by the San Antonio Spurs and substantial sanctions will be forthcoming."

The short-handed Spurs still played the defending champion Heat tough, leading by five with 2:14 left before Miami closed the game on a 12-2 for a 105-100 victory. And the Spurs players are standing behind their coach's decision.

"Pop is the coach of the San Antonio Spurs," guard Gary Neal said. "He did what's best for us."

Ortiz: All respect for Valentine 'gone'

Speaking on WEEI's Hot Stove show Thursday night, David Ortiz said he still has had no communication with Bobby Valentine since the former Red Sox manager's comments to Bob Costas. 

In the interview with Costas, Valentine suggested the designated hitter shut himself down during the 2012 season not because of Achilles tendon soreness, but due to the team trading away Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto, thereby choosing to plan for the future instead of prioritizing '12.

"He realized that this trade meant that we're not going to run this race and we're not even going to finish the race properly and he decided not to play anymore," Valentine said in the interview on "Costas Tonight" on NBC Sports Network. "I think at that time it was all downhill from there."

Thursday night, Ortiz -- who played in one game after injuring his Achilles July 14 -- reiterated his disdain for the comments...
