Report: Celtics almost sent Allen to Memphis

According to a report from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski Wednesday morning, the Celtics had made a deal at the trade deadline last month to send Ray Allen to the Grizzlies for O.J. Mayo and a draft pick, and Doc Rivers called Allen to let him know he was traded. After about 20 minutes, Rivers called back to say the deal was off.

The report also revealed that there were discussions on a deal to send Paul Pierce to the Nets for Mehmet Okur's expiring contract and a lottery pick, but those talks did not lead to an agreement.

The story, which credits league sources for the information, also indicated Allen isn't thrilled with his new role off the bench but will handle the situation as a professional.

Allen missed Tuesday night's loss to the Knicks with a sore right ankle. It was the fifth...

Mashup: Marlins' Guillen back, on 'probation'

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen returned Tuesday from a five-game team suspension for his comments praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and he remained apologetic.

"I put myself on probation … me, nobody else," Guillen said. "It's probation about growing up and being better, and be careful to not trust too many people. That was my problem."

There were no demonstrations against Guillen prior to the Marlins' 5-2 victory over the Cubs, which drew a season-low 24,544 to Marlins Park in Miami.

There was one noticeable heckler during the game, but Guillen said he heard only supportive comments.

"Everything was pretty nice," he said. "It made my day a little easier. I appreciate the way people were, not just with me but with the team."

Bobby V: Minors a possibility for Melancon

Reliever Mark Melancon failed to retire any of the six batters he faced and allowed three home runs in the process, becoming just the eighth pitcher since 1918 to give up three home runs without recording an out in a game. He has allowed runs in all four games he's pitched for the Sox, becoming the first reliever in team history to give up runs in each of his first four contests (each of one inning or less) with the club.

With Melancon's ERA sitting at 49.50, manager Bobby Valentine said that the team could not dismiss the possibility of sending the right-hander -- acquired in a trade with the Astros this offseason -- to the minors. Melancon does have an option left.

“At this time, you have to consider everything,” Valentine said. “He’s really concerned. I’m very concerned, obviously. He’s not getting the swing and miss. It seems like he’s a little –– he’s searching right now and so are we...

Pierce's big night can't save Celtics

For the first time in a regular-season game in the Big Three era a Celtic scored more than 40 points, but Paul Pierce's 43 points Tuesday night in New York weren't enough as the Celtics lost 118-110 after a deluge of Knicks 3-pointers. The Knicks made 19-of-32 from behind the arc as Steve Novak buried eight 3-pointers and J.R. Smith hit seven. Carmelo Anthony also recorded a triple-double with 35 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Rajon Rondo extended his streak of double-digit assist games to 23 with a 13-point, 13-assist effort.

The Knicks scored 40 points in the second quarter and set NBA records for most 3-pointers in a quarter (11) and in a half (14). Smith made his first five 3's and went 7-for-9 in the first half while Novak went 4-for-6. Behind Smith and Novak, the Knicks bench outscored Boston's 39-0 in the first half and led by as many as 20 points.

Ray Allen missed his fifth straight game with a sore ankle and the Celtics also were...
