Doc: Fisher 'won the game for them'

Derek Fisher generally is the default fall guy for the Lakers when they lose, but in Game 3 of the NBA finals he made several big plays down the stretch that helped them take a 2-1 series lead with a 91-84 victory. "[He] won the game for them," Doc Rivers said. "Derek Fisher was the difference in the game." Rivers was most upset about a three-point play that Fisher was able to get late in the game that sealed the Lakers win. "All you need is a stop," Rivers said. "We let Derek Fisher dribble the ball all the way up the court, unattended, get a three-point play. If you get a stop there, we had two timeouts left. We had plenty of time."

Artest: Referees 'calling it fair'

Ron Artest spoke to the media after the Lakers' 91-84 Game 3 win over the Celtics and weighed in on the officiating to this point in the NBA finals.

 

"They are calling it tight on both ends, they're calling it fair," Artest said. "I thought they called it fair. In Game 2 I thought they called it fair. Sometimes you can be frustrated with referees, but it's a hard game to call. Both teams are complaining all the time, so something's got to be gone. But the refs just need to continue to ref the game the way that they have been refereeing it."

Lakers bounce back to gain 2-1 series lead

Derek Fisher scored 11 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter and Kobe Bryant had a game-high 29 as the Lakers held off a furious rally by the Celtics to win Game 3 of the NBA finals, 91-84, Tuesday night at TD Garden. The Lakers take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven championship series. 

 

The Lakers spoiled the best performance of the series and arguably of the postseason by Kevin Garnett, who hit his first three shots of the night on lay-ups and finished with a team-high 25 on 11-of-16 shooting from the field. The Celtics trailed by as many as 17 in the second quarter, 37-20, before closing to 12 at halftime. The Celtics had several opportunities to tie the game and even take the lead in the fourth quarter but could never overcome the Lakers. After a record-setting eight 3s in Game 2, Ray Allen finished 0-for-13 from the floor, missing all eight attempts from 3-point range.

Wakefield dazzles as Sox stifle Indians

CLEVELAND -- Tim Wakefield retired 15 straight batters in one stretch en route to his second victory of the season, making Red Sox history in the process, as Boston defeated the Indians at Progressive Field, 3-2.

 

Wakefield pitched 7 1/3 innings, giving his 2,777 in his Red Sox career. When he recorded the second out of the seventh inning, he surpassed Roger Clemens for the most innings thrown in franchise history. Wakefield allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and walked none while striking out six in improving to 2-4 on the season. He recorded career win No. 177 with the Sox, 15 behind Clemens and Cy Young for the most as a Sox.

 

All three runs of offensive support that Wakefield received were of the unearned variety. With two outs in the top of the fourth inning, Indians centerfielder Trevor Crowe dropped a Victor Martinez fly ball, opening the door for the Sox to string together four straight two-out hits....
