Statement from ref regarding KG ejection

Referee Joe DeRosa, who ejected Celtics forward Kevin Garnett with 40 seconds remaining in the Celts' 85-76 win over the Heat Saturday night at the TD Garden, issued the following statement regarding the disciplinary action: "He was ejected for throwing an elbow that made contact with Quentin Richardson. He had already had one technical foul for taunting with Quentin Richardson before that. Then as the altercation went on he threw an elbow that did make contact with Richardson, which was his second technical foul and he was ejected."

 

Asked if Garnett connected with Richardson when he threw the elbow, DeRosa said through a pool reporter, "Yes, that's what the video replay that we saw looked like, that he clearly made contact with Richardson. But even if he had not he still would have been ejected for a second technical foul for throwing an elbow."

Richardson on Pierce, KG: 'I don't like them'

Speaking after his team dropped an 85-76 decision to the Celtics, Miami guard Quentin Richardson spoke of his dislike for both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. It was the skirmish that Richardson got into with Garnett, with Pierce on the floor with an apparent injury, that led to Garnett being ejected from the game with 40 seconds remaining.

 

"I don't like them," Richardson said, "and they know it."

 

As for the incident, Richardson wasn't sold on the severity of Pierce's injury, which was identified as a shoulder issue by the Celtics forward after the first-round Eastern Conference playoff game. 

 

"He's on the ground crying and I don't know what's going on," the Heat guard said. "Two actresses over there, that's what they are." When asked he was surprised the confrontation escalated, Richardson responded, "I'm not surprised at people's actions when I know...

Rays take second game from Sox
By: DJ Bean

Three homers from Red Sox infielders wasn't enough for the Red Sox, who nearly overcame an ugly first inning from the defense and Clay Buchholz but fell to the Rays 6-5 on Saturday night. Dustin Pedroia became the first Boston second baseman to hit five home runs in the month of April and Marco Scutaro went deep for the first time as a member of the Red Sox. The Sox went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position, however, and failed to take the lead at any point in the game. Rafael Soriano, who picked up the save in the continuation of Friday night's game, closed out the Sox in the ninth. The Red Sox out-hit the Rays 11-5.
