Baby on Doc: 'It's like a love-hate thing'

Following his most productive night of the season in the scoring column, Glen Davis said coach Doc Rivers continues to give him plenty of tough love this season. But Davis - with 23 points in a 105-103 win over the Spurs - added that Rivers is working with him this season harder than ever to get the most out of him. 

 

“He has, he has worked with me," Davis said, after making 10-of-18 shots from the field. "He's given me the opportunity to show what I got. He is still hard on me. He’s still hard. It’s like a love hate thing. It's like you love it but pipe it down sometimes."

 

Asked to describe their relationship - now in its fourth year - Davis said it's a very complicated but effective one. 

 

“For sure, father-son, like step-son," Davis added. "He loves me. But it’s like I still love you, but I’m hard on you. It is what it is."...

Red Sox won't be bringing in RF fence

The Red Sox have withdrawn their request to the office of the Massachusetts Secretary of State to undergo construction that would bring in the right field fence at Fenway Park as much as nine feet. The move, which would have expanded the width of the Fenway bullpens fro 21 to 27 feet, had to approved by the Boston Landmarks Commission and the Massachusetts Historical Society. The change was met with some resistance from the Massachusetts Historical Society.

 

The following is a statement issued by the team: "The Red Sox recently sent a letter to the Secretary of State’s office withdrawing a request to consider expansion of the right field bullpen area this off-season. As we moved through the review process over the last several months, issues arose regarding implementation that required additional discussion and consideration of other design possibilities.  Given the tight construction timeline we are operating on to have the...

Jingle Jangle: C's deal Spurs a loss

Paul Pierce blocked Manu Ginobili's jumper as time expired to preserve a 105-103 win over the NBA-leading San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night at TD Garden. 

 

Ray Allen scored a game-high 31 points in a blazing shooting display and Rajon Rondo made team history with 22 assists as part of a triple-double, as the Celtics held off the Spurs in a match-up of teams with the two best records in the NBA. Rondo - who also finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds - became the first player in Celtics history with at least 19 assists in three games in a season. He fell just two shy of his season high of 24 on Oct. 29 vs. the Knicks. 

 

Allen made 13-of-16 shots on the night, including a three-pointer with 1:35 left in the game to put the Celtics up five. Rondo hit a runner in the lane that appeared to seal the game with 1:06 left. But the Spurs went on a 7-0 run to draw within two. Allen then missed both free throws with 7.4...

Rivard, Harvard knock off BC again

The past three seasons, when he was serving as coach at Cornell, Steve Donahue's record vs. the Ivy League was 38-4. Fifteen games into his tenure at Boston College, Donahue is 0-2.

 

For the third straight season, Harvard waltzed into Conte Forum and overpowered the Eagles, taking a 78-69 decision before 4,129 stunned fans. BC also lost to Yale on Nov. 18.

 

Freshman Laurent Rivard scored a game-high 23 points to lead the Crimson (10-3). Keith Wright added 15.

 

Joe Trapani led BC (11-4) with 21 points. Reggie Jackson had 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

 

Usually, when an Ivy League team beats at ACC opponent, it's because the Ivy club shoots the lights out, especially from 3-point range. Not in this one. Harvard was simply tougher than BC — physically and mentally — and took it right to the Eagles' throats. The Crimson led by four points at the break and fought...

Garnett begins conditioning

It's been a week since Kevin Garnett left the Celtics game with Detroit with what turned out to be a strained calf muscle. At the time the team put a two-week window on his possible return, although it should be noted that the timeframe was only a rough estimate and is very flexible. Garnett has done his part, getting up shots after practice and working on conditioning with trainer Bryan Doo. "What was the time frame we gave you, two weeks?" Doc Rivers asked. "Is it next Wednesday? So hopefully back in two weeks."
