Pierce denies 'broom' tweet

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.

Motorcycle racer killed at NHIS

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.

Rivers on D&C: 'I feel awful for Marquis'

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...

Mashup: Romanowski praises Galea

Canadian doctor Anthony Galea is facing federal charges for allegedly traveling to U.S. cities (including Boston) and injecting athletes with performance enhancing drugs. However, Galea has at least one supporter: former NFL player and admitted steroid user Bill Romanowski, who calls Galea a "pioneer in sports medicine." Galea probably won't be thanking Romanowski for that endorsement. In other news, Lakers coach Phil Jackson reportedly has been told he'll need to take a 60 percent pay cut if he wants to return to the team next season. And a Red Sox fan won a bet with his friends by watching the first pitch of Monday night's game at his home in Natick and then driving to Yankee Stadium and arriving in his seat before the game was over. Read about those stories, plus check out our videos, trivia and more at Thursday's Morning Mashup.
