Davis: Celtics need to play better

Speaking after their pregame shootaround, Celtics forward Glen Davis said that the team, "didn’t play as well as we need to play," in Game 1 of their playoff series with the Knicks. Among the areas of concern are Amar'e Stoudemire who went for 28 points in Game 1, turnovers (the Celtics had 18) and the play of the bench, which shot a combined 4-for-15.

Davis, who made only one of his eight shots from the floor added that he needed to, "pick wisely" when it comes to his offense and look to get the ball inside when he has a matchup advantage.

The Celtics went through shootaround with 14 players. The only one unavailable was Shaquille O'Neal who has already been ruled out by coach Doc Rivers. Knicks guard Chauncey Billups has not practiced since Sunday's Game 1 and is said to be "doubtful" for Game 2 tonight.

Kruk on M&M: Sox pitchers don't trust Salty
By: admin

ESPN baseball analyst John Kruk, in his weekly interview on the Mut & Merloni Show, suggested that the Red Sox' three-game winning streak against the Blue Jays gave up glimpse of what he expected from the club. Even so, Kruk acknowledged that he does have some questions about the club, including the team's catching situation.

Through the first 15 games of the season, Red Sox pitchers have a 2.40 ERA with Jason Varitek behind the plate and a 7.29 mark with Jarrod Saltalamacchia calling signals. Kruk suggested that he doesn't think the disparity is a coincidence.

"[Josh] Beckett and Daisuke [Matsuzaka], their best starts of the year just happened to be with Varitek behind the plate? I don’t think so," said Kruk. "First of all, the thing with Jarrod Saltalamacchia is this. He’s never established himself as an everyday catcher. All we heard about when he was in Atlanta was, ‘Oh, this guy is going to be the...

Belichick: 'A lot of interest in our picks'

Bill Belichick was a guest on Sirius/XM NFL Radio on Monday night, telling Pat Kirwin and Jim Miller that the Patriots -- owners of three of the top 33 picks in this year's NFL Draft -- have already had discussions with other organizations that have interest in the New England picks.

“We’ve definitely been contacted by teams below us offering to move back, and by teams behind us looking to move up,” Belichick said. “There definitely seems to be a lot of interest in our draft picks. And as you know we’re not afraid to trade them.”

The Patriots have the 17th pick in the first round (via a trade with Oakland), the 28th pick in the first round and the first pick of the second round, 33rd overall (via a trade with Carolina). Belichick "definitely" thinks the 33rd pick could be a target of teams looking to potentially add a quarterback.

"And we’re sitting there at No. 28 in...

Mashup: ESPN pulls plug on poker shows

ESPN announced Monday that it will stop running poker shows and advertisements, following the U.S. government's indictments against gambling websites that sponsor the shows. The government froze bank accounts in 14 countries and seized the websites of poker sites including major sponsors PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. "For the immediate future, we are making efforts to remove related advertising and programming pending further review," ESPN said in a statement.

Also in the news, Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau took some shots at Madison Square Garden and the Rangers, and Notre Dame concluded that "no one acted in disregard to safety" in the death of a student who was filming football practice last fall when heavy winds blew over his structure.

Chara after win: 'I felt much better today'
By: DJ Bean

MONTREAL -- Bruins captain Zdeno Chara made his return to the lineup Monday night, playing a team-high 26:20 in Boston's 4-2 win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. The defenseman had missed Saturday's Game 2 due to an illness that had hospitalized him Friday night. 

Chara, who said he knew he Monday morning that he would "most likely" play in Game 3, was crossed up with Andrew Ference for a too-many-men penalty 1:08 into the game and was beating by Andrei Kostitsyn for the Habs' first goal, though he picked up an assist on Nathan Horton's first-period goal and posted an even rating on the night. The 6-foot-9 defenseman said he "felt pretty good," but that the team's performance and getting their first win of the series (Montreal leads, 2-1) was his biggest concern.

"We knew the importance of this game, and we approach it that way," Chara said. "I was just happy with the result tonight, and we'...
