KG suspended for Game 1 fracas

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett has been suspended one game for landing an elbow to the head of Miami's Quentin Richardson in a fourth-quarter fracas during Saturday's playoff game between Boston and Miami. Garnett will sit for Tuesday's Game 2 at TD Garden. NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson made the announcement Sunday. Richardson was fined $25,000 for his role in the altercation.

Sox get dominated by Rays, Garza

Tampa Bay starter Matt Garza threw eight shutout innings, improving to 6-2 with a 2.92 ERA in his career (regular season) against Boston as the Rays blew out the Red Sox by a 7-1 count. Garza (3-0) allowed the Sox offense just four hits and two walks in lowering his ERA for the season to 0.75. The Sox, meanwhile, have managed just seven runs in their last four games.

 

The Rays scored early and often against Sox starter Jon Lester. After the left-hander struck out the side in the first, Rays nemesis Carlos Pena blasted a two-run homer to center against him. It was the fifth homer that Pena has launched against Lester, more than any other hitter. Tampa Bay continued to add on with a two-run single from Ben Zobrist in the third and a two-run homer by B.J. Upton in the sixth.

 

Lester lasted six innings, giving up seven runs on seven hits, and he now has an 0-2 record and 8.44 ERA in three starts this year.

Garnett: No regrets over Game 1 flap

WALTHAM — Kevin Garnett does not regret his actions during Game 1 of the Celtics-Heat playoffs series, he said following practice on Sunday. He was ejected after receiving two technical fouls during a fourth quarter altercation with Quentin Richardson.

 

“No, not at all, not at all, not at all,” he said. “I would hope that if I was hurt or if I was down in that position, someone would at least give me some space to sort of recover or gather myself. That’s the only thing I was asking for. Nothing more, nothing less than that.”

Garnett has yet to hear a ruling from the NBA on the incident which began when Richardson approached him and Paul Pierce as Pierce lay in front of the Heat bench.

“It’s what it is,” he said. “Listen man, I would do that if Doc, if somebody I cared about, I tend to, I was taught to help a teammate and that’s what it is. If I have to...

Lester gets career strikeout No. 500

Red Sox starter Jon Lester caught Rays designated hitter Willie Aybar looking at a 93 mph fastball for his 500th career strikeout in the top of the fourth inning. Lester struck out the side in the first, and now has five strikeouts through four innings. Lester is the seventh left-handed pitcher in Sox franchise history, and first since Bruce Hurst (1980-89), to reach the milestone.

Noah rips KG: 'He's a dirty player'

Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah ripped Kevin Garnett Sunday morning after the dust-up between Garnett and Miami's Quentin Richardson in Game 1 of their playoff series. "He's unbelievable, that guy," Noah said to reporters in Cleveland where the Bulls are getting ready to play Game 2 against the Cavaliers. "I'm gonna say it: He's a dirty player, man. That's messed up." Noah and Garnett have a history. Before  Game 7 of last season's playoffs, Noah told WEEI.com that he was not fan of Garnett, even though he was his favorite player growing up.
