Ten minutes per half for Bynum

LOS ANGELES -- While Kendrick Perkins is out for the Celtics, the Lakers have their own health problem at center. Andrew Bynum has been bothered by a torn meniscus and has seen his playing time cut since Game 2. Phil Jackson indicated that he might be able to play 10 minutes per half. "That's kind of what our training staff has said," Jackson said prior to Game 7. "Unless he has a landing or a turn or something that ends up irritating that particular part of his knee that has some loose tissue, and then he gets, of course, lack of function in the muscles. So that could be it. I think it'll all depend on his transition, his ability to get up and down the court."

Sheed starts for Perkins in Game 7

LOS ANGELES -- Rasheed Wallace will start for Kendrick Perkins in Game 7 of the NBA finals. Celtics coach Doc Rivers made the announcement about an hour before the game. 

 

“He’s old. I figured I’d play the oldest guys,” Rivers said starting the 35-year-old Wallace before giving a serious explanation. “I just think it’s a good combination with Kevin [Garnett] because of the size, with Bynum’s size. I just think it’s a better fit for us. “It also may give [Rajon] Rondo a chance to get loose early because of the spacing on the floor.”

Francona 'not sure' Manny will remember him
By: DJ Bean

Prior to Thursday night's game vs. Dan Haren and the Diamondbacks, Red Sox manager Terry Francona talked about the progress of Daisuke Matsuzaka and the well-hyped return of Manny Ramirez to Fenway Park tomorrow. 

 

"I don't know if he will remember that I'm the manager," Francona joked. "I don't know. I don't know how the day goes. I guess I don't set out to think, 'Well I've got to do this, I've got to do that.' You run across so many players now that you've had somewhere that it's fun to say hello to people you had.

 

Francona, who said it was "hard not to laugh" at Ramirez' historic "cut-off" in 2004 vs. the Orioles, hasn't put much thought into whether the hitter with the fifth-most homers in Sox history will be applauded or booed.  

"I don't need to spend any energy on how he's going to be received or how Johnny Damon's going to be received. It just doesn't make...

C's fan Francona on Game 7: 'I love it'
By: DJ Bean

It was clear prior to Thursday's finale between the Red Sox and Diamondbacks that the home team was well aware of the decisive seventh game of the NBA finals that is to take place between the Celtics and Lakers later on in Los Angeles. During batting practice Mike Cameron roamed the outfield in a green "Beat LA" shirt, while Terry Francona told reporters that as a fan of the Celtics, he'll be pulling for Doc Rivers' club to win it all. 

 

"As a fan, [I want] the Celtics," Francona told reporters. "I'm just like everybody else. As a fan I get nervous, get excited. Obviously we need to have our priorities in line and win our game tonight, but when our game's over I will be very excited to go watch this game. How can you not be? I love it. It's Game 7. To watch how people react, it's really cool. I love it."
