Sore ankle keeps Allen from Toronto trip

When the Celtics left for Toronto on Thursday to begin a stretch of three games in three cities in three nights, guard Ray Allen was not with them. Allen was held back in Boston with a sore right ankle and the team said on its Twitter feed that he is day-to-day.

Allen missed six games with the ankle injury before returning on April 4 for a game against the Spurs. Allen moved to the bench for their next game against the Bulls and aw action in five games before missing Wednesday's contest with the Hawks.

After playing the Raptors on Friday, the Celtics will play New Jersey on Saturday and Charlotte on Sunday with another road game in New York on Tuesday.

Julien hopeful Boychuk will play in Game 1
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien would only say he "hopes" defenseman Johnny Boychuk will be in the lineup Thursday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Capitals.

Based on this week, it would appear that Boychuk should be ready to return after missing the last two games of the regular season with a sprained knee. He participated in Thursday's morning skate, marking the fourth straight day he's been on the ice with the team. In practices and line drills, Boychuk has played on the second pairing with Andrew Ference.

Julien would not reveal the healthy scratch among forwards, but it should be either Jordan Caron or Daniel Paille, as the two have shared the left wing on the fourth line this week in practice. 

Adam McQuaid (upper-body) and Tuukka Rask (abdomen/groin) will not dress. Anton Khudobin will serve as the team's backup to Tim Thomas.

Rivers on D&C: 'I think we can' win title

Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show on Thursday, the morning after the Celtics knocked off the Hawks in overtime to improve to 34-24 on the season and into a tie with Atlanta and Orlando for the fourth-best record in the Eastern Conference. Given that it was the fourth game in five nights for the Celtics -- with a win in Miami on Tuesday night -- and the Hawks hadn't played since Saturday a win seemed a difficult task on Wednesday.

"I thought it was the best win we had all year," Rivers said. "Atlanta had been sitting there waiting for us for a few days, and so I was really concerned. Last night, to me, was every bit as important as the night before. I thought it was more important in a lot of ways."

The Celtics lead the 76ers by three games in the Atlantic Division with eight games to go but also now trail the Pacers by just two games for the third overall seed in the Eastern Conference....

Mashup: 49ers' Jacobs blames Giants O-line

Running back Brandon Jacobs won a Super Bowl with the Giants two months ago, but now that he's signed with the 49ers, he's not showing a lot of respect for his former teammates. During an interview on San Francisco radio station KNBR, Jacobs said the New York offensive line deserved more criticism for his lack of production last season.

"We had issues. When I was with the Giants, we had issues down the line," he said. "Of course, I took the blame for those [because I was] holding the ball. But ultimately, at the end of the day, it is my fault because I do have the ball and that's what people see. But there's a lot more than that going on."

As for why he decided to leave New York for San Francisco, Jacobs said: "At the end of the day we go out and play this game for it being football, what we all love playing. But after you've been in the business a certain amount of time, and know that they've turned it into...

Doc: 'Worst game we've ever won'

After watching his team commit 12 turnovers in the first half and 23 over four quarters and overtime, Doc Rivers was just happy to get away with an 88-86 win over the Hawks Wednesday night at TD Garden. Adding to the ugliness were the disqualifications of Kevin Garnett and Greg Steimsma in overtime, as both big men fouled out while Paul Pierce was called for an offensive foul with 5.3 seconds remaining in overtime, sending the Garden crowd into a near riot. 

“I gotta [say] that was the worst game we’ve ever won," said Rivers, who watched as Rajon Rondo recorded his 19th career triple-double, and sixth this season. "And you thought I’d say something else…I mean, we didn’t play well. I mean, we just kept hanging in there. You could see the fatigue and it’s amazing how things backfire. You rest Kevin and you get a good break and then all of a sudden he has to go in overtime. Rondo was sensational; didn...
