Cavs coach disputes Shaq's hard foul

CLEVELAND — There has been a lot made of the hard foul that Shaquille O’Neal administered to Rajon Rondo late in Game 1 that sent Rondo careening to the floor. One overheated Cleveland media member asked Cavs coach Mike Brown if it was the hardest playoff foul he’s ever seen. Obviously it wasn’t, but Brown raised some eyebrows when he said he asked the NBA for clarification over whether it actually was even a foul. Brown’s contention is that Rondo initiated the contact. Read the full post on Green Street.

UVA lax player charged with murder

University of Virginia men's lacrosse player George Huguely has been charged with the murder of women's lacrosse player Yeardley Love, according to reports from Charlottesville, Va.

Sturm: 'I always come back from big injuries'

Bruins forward Marco Sturm spoke for the first time since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his knee in the first period of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Flyers on Saturday. Sturm expressed disappointment, especially considering that he missed most of the 2008-09 season with a torn ACL in the opposite knee. A somber Sturm acknowledged that the injury probably is the most disappointing moment of his career.

 

"After the ACL from last year, I just never thought there was going to be another injury like this. It is a tough one, but I always came back from big injuries and I know that I am going to do it again, but it is definitely difficult," Sturm said. "Even last year it was the same type of injury, but this one hit me the most. Too fast after I came back, and it is the playoffs, too. You want to play in the playoffs, that is why you play."
