Mashup: Warriors fans mar Mullin ceremony

The Warriors retired Chris Mullin's number Monday night, but the halftime ceremony was marred by the fans' booing of second-year owner Joe Lacob (a New Bedford native and former Celtics minority owner). The ceremony came just days after the team traded leading scorer Monta Ellis, and the fans were relentless in voicing their displeasure, despite pleas from Mullin and Warriors legend Rick Barry to show more respect.

"Look, fans are upset, I guess, that we traded one of their favorites, and that’s all I can attribute that to," Lacob said afterward. "What I feel bad about is it kind of ruined a night that was very special, that the organization really tried to do the right thing for with Chris. And I feel good that we did that. I feel bad for Chris, more than anything else."

Report: Mankins had surgery on torn ACL

Patriots Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins had surgery to repair a torn ACL after the Super Bowl, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston.

According to Reiss, Mankins injured the knee early in Super Bowl XLVI, and it was later determined Mankins had been playing through a torn ACL. Mankins hopes to return for the start of training camp in late July.

Taken in the first round out of Fresno State in 2005, the 6-foot-4, 310-pounder has developed a reputation as one of the toughest players in the locker room -- the first game he missed because of injury as a professional was the regular-season finale this past year against the Bills after suffering a knee injury the week before against the Dolphins.

Joe Johnson nailed a 3-pointer with 11.8 seconds remain to cut Boston's lead to one, 77-76.

Chiarelli: No more extensions during season
By: DJ Bean

Meeting with the media before Monday's game to discuss Shawn Thornton's two-year contract extension, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said the team will not extend any more players before the end of the season. 

"The rest we've put off until after the season," Chiarelli said. "I've spoken to all of them, and I want them to focus on hockey, so we're not doing any more until after the season."

In addition to Thornton, the team has given contracts to Rich Peverley, David Krejci and Johnny Boychuk, all of whom were in the last years of their deals. 

Chiarelli's announcement means Chris Kelly, Daniel Paille, Brian Rolston, Greg Zanon, Joe Corvo and Mike Mottau will become unrestricted free agents at the end of the season. Benoit Pouliot and Tuukka Rask will be restricted free agents.
