Perkins on D&H: 'Got to get it going'

Celtics center Kendrick Perkins made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Thursday morning to talk about the Celtics' struggles, which were painfully evident in Wednesday night's blowout loss at home to the Grizzlies. Perkins addressed the team's home woes. "I don't think we feel like we have a sense of urgency," he said. "On the road, you can feel the urgency and focus before the game. [At home], guys are talking more in the locker room. ... You can just tell it's a different kind of focus."

 

Asked about the boos from the home crowd Wednesday night, Perkins said he was surprised they started so early, in the first quarter, but that it didn't bother him. "Not really. I think we deserved to get booed last night," he said. "We didn't give our best performance last night. We've got to do a better job."

 

Asked if he felt the team could coast through the regular season and then...

Bay: Never been as comfortable

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Jason Bay said prior to his Mets took on his former team, the Red Sox Thursday that he is "probably" the most comfortable he has been in his career. Just a few weeks into his four-year, $66 million deal (that also carries a vesting option for a fifth year, along with a full no-trade clause), Bay said, "To be honest with you, I feel I've been here a lot longer than the two weeks I have. It's refreshing.

 

"Pittsburgh was up and down. Boston, I had a great time there, but I didn't know where I was going to be. Ultimately now there's a little bit of ease. Even all offseason I was wondering where I was going to be and finally in January I signed the contract and kind of exhaled knowing where I was going to be, but by that point there was a month left in the offseason. The offseason felt like it was a month long because there were so many unknowns. Then being here, you dig your feet in knowing that you're...

Rivers on D&C: Celtics 'gave in'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the Celtics' embarrassing loss to the Grizzlies the night before. Asked if his team quit, Rivers said it didn't start out that way, but that's how it ended up. "I thought they gave in as the game went on. Yeah, there's no doubt, you can call it 'quit' or whatever," Rivers said. "But I don't think they mailed it in when they showed up. If you look at the first eight minutes of that game, I thought we competed. We missed every shot, every wide-open shot. ... When things went bad, I didn't think we had a lot of resolve to fight it last night, and that was obvious, But when you watch the beginning of the game, the ball was moving. We missed wide-open shot after wide-open shot after wide-open shot. ... What bothered me about it was as we missed shots we hung our heads more and more." Added Rivers: "On the [defensive] end is...

Big Baby too small for 'Blind Side'?

Sean Tuohy, a Memphis Grizzlies broadcaster and the adoptive father of offensive lineman Michael Oher, discussed Glen Davis' efforts to get cast as Oher in the movie "The Blind Side." While Davis was one of the three finalists for the role that ultimately went to Quinton Aaron in the movie that was among the 10 Academy Award nominees for Best Picture, Tuohy said that, in the end, the Celtics forward was an imperfect fit.

 

“He was too good, that’s what it was,” Tuohy explained. “They were looking for somebody that when they walked in the room, you immediately were attracted to, but you were immediately attracted to in a way that you’d want to help. And Glen, he’s bigger than life so he doesn’t exude anything about need. He exudes a lot of confidence. They said he was almost too pretty and also wasn’t big enough.”
