Dwyane Wade met with the media following Miami's 97-82 Game 3 loss to the Celtics on Saturday night. Rajon Rondo injured his left elbow after falling to the ground with Wade in the third quarter, and it is unclear if Wade pulled Rondo down intentionally. Wade was asked about the incident and if he did indeed take Rondo down on purpose.
"All I have to say is that it's a physical game, the game of basketball is a physical game," said Wade. "I'm not a dirty player, it's physical. Everyone falls to the ground, everyone gets hurt, gets up, so I have no answer for you for that."

Doc Rivers met with the media following the Celtics' 97-81 win over the Heat in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. Rivers was asked about Rajon Rondo, who appeared to be dragged down by Dwyane Wade in the third quarter and reportedly dislocated his left elbow. Rondo returned in the fourth quarter and played a key role down the stretch for the Celtics, who now trail the best-of-seven series 2-1.
"I still haven't seen it, I heard that I don't want to see it and don't plan on seeing it," said Rivers of the Rondo injury. "Probably it helped me, honestly, that I didn't see it, because if I had from what I hear from our guys it would have been tough to put him back in the game."
Rivers was asked about the possibility that Rondo may not be able to play in Monday's Game 4.
"It's a major concern," said Rivers. "You can play a lot on adrenaline, we've seen people do it all the time, but...
With their middle infield depth depleted by injuries to both big league middle infielder Marco Scutaro and versatile Pawtucket infielder/outfielder Yamaico Navarro, the Red Sox are bringing prospect Jose Iglesias to Boston from Scranton, where he played for Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, going 3-for-4. According to an industry source, the Sox will make a decision about whether to add Iglesias to their big league roster on Sunday, following an evaluation of Scutaro.
Scutaro is dealing with an injury to his left side, and told WEEI.com after Saturday's game that he was to be examined on Sunday. Navarro, meanwhile, was placed on the disabled list by Pawtucket on Saturday due to an oblique strain incurred on Tuesday.
And so, it is apparently Iglesias -- the consensus top prospect in the Red Sox system -- who...
Inspired by the return of injured Rajon Rondo from a dislocated left elbow, the Celtics overpowered the Heat in the second half and ran away with a 97-81 win in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series at TD Garden. Kevin Garnett scored 28 and a fired-up Paul Pierce nailed 5-of-7 3-point attemps and finished with 27 as the Celtics cut Miami's lead to 2-1 in the best-of-7 series.
In the first quarter, it was Pierce providing the inspiration as he scored 12 of his team's 27 points as the Celtics raced out to a 27-21 lead after one. But the Heat took advantage of a 9-4 personal foul disparity in the first half to get back in the game. Miami outscored Boston, 25-17, to take a 46-44 halftime lead.
Pierce and Garnett led the Celtics during a 16-4 run in the first five minutes as they took a 60-50 lead. Then, with 7:02 left in the third, Rondo appeared to be pushed to the floor by Dwyane Wade, who then fell on him during a...
