The Celtics issued a consumer advisory Thursday asking fans to be wary of purchasing counterfeit tickets. “The organization has received numerous reports of counterfeit playoff tickets being sold to consumers in the Boston area,” the team said in a press release. Fans are urged to be cautious and aware of the situation. The release went on to say that the only guaranteed authentic tickets are ones that are purchased through the team website, Ticketmaster, the Garden box office or Ticketmaster’s exchange program. Fans are also urged to call the Boston Police if they are suspicious of any fake tickets. Read more Celtics coverage on Green Street.
WALTHAM -- Before heading out to practice on Thursday for Game 3 of their series against the Magic, Paul Pierce denied disrespecting the Orlando Magic with a tweet following Boston's Game 2 win on Tuesday.
"I think you guys [media] know more than me on that. I guess somebody said I said, 'Break out the brooms.' I'm not going to say that on the tweet," Pierce said. "I think that's pretty unprofessional. That's not something I would say like that. I'll probably talk some trash and say some things on the court I wouldn't say here [to media] but I definitely didn't say that."
After a twitter post of 'Anyone got a BROOM?' from Pierce's account, the Celtics captain denied it and said his account was hacked. Game 3 is set for Saturday night at TD Garden in Boston, with the Celtics leading the Eastern Conference finals, 2-0.

A Connecticut motorcycle racer died after a crash during Sunday's Loudon Road Race Series event at New Hampshire International Speedway. Morgan Rose of New Haven, Conn., was a novice racer who had been riding in the series for about a year, according to Loudon Road Race Series director Don Hutchinson. Hutchinson, who did not witness the event, told the Concord Monitor that Rose's motorcycle, a SuperSport-class Suzuki, collided with another rider's bike while they were racing side by side. Rose and his bike "slid straight up the track" toward the wall, Hutchinson said. However, speedway general manager Jerry Gappens said he was told Rose crashed on his own before being run over. Rose had completed one lap of the Novice GTO SuperSport contest when he crashed.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning and warned that the Eastern Conference finals are not over just because the C's lead the Magic by two games as the series shifts to Boston. "They've been up here twice [this season] and won," Rivers cautioned. "You can say they've won the last three times they've been in our building, so they're probably feeling pretty comfortable."
Rivers said there are areas of the game the Celtics need to improve heading into Saturday night's Game 3. "The [Magic's] dribble penetration is starting to hurt us," he said. As for the other side of the court, "Offensively, we've had two bad fourth quarters. ... We have to be more efficient."
Rivers was asked about a situation in Game 2 when Orlando's Matt Barnes helped up Rajon Rondo off the floor, and the ESPN announcers were critical of the...
