Sign In Luka Doncic’s pockets might be a tad lighter by the time the Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks take the floor at American Airlines Arena for Game 4 of the NBA Finals. He made sure to get him money’s worth, though. Doncic, just moments after fouling out of Game 3, turned to referee Kevin Scott and flashed the infamous money sign, according to ESPN’s Tim Bontemps, implying that the referee was being paid to make calls in favor of the Celtics. “I don’t know,” Doncic said postgame. “We couldn’t play physical, I don’t know. I don’t want to say nothing, but six fouls in the NBA F ..read more

Sign In The NFL finally announced the findings of its weeks-long investigation into tampering allegations levied against the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons on Thursday. The Eagles were not penalized, as it was found they had no illegal contact with Saquon Barkley prior to signing him this offseason. The Falcons? It appears they love to tamper. Atlanta was found to have violated the anti-tampering policy with Kirk Cousins, Darnell Mooney and Charlie Woerner, though it only lost a 2025 fifth-round pick for the violation. The Falcons were fined $250k and general manager Terry Fontenot wa ..read more

Sign In FOXBORO, Mass. — Drew Bledsoe and Rob Gronkowski said prior to the Tom Brady Hall of Fame induction they left their roast jokes at their last event. Bill Burr, however, didn’t get that memo. The well-known comedian and Boston sports fan absolutely torched some folks during the first-of-its-kind celebration at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday night. Burr took Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid to the woodshed when he explained why Brady’s legacy would never be duplicated. “I don’t want to hear about that guy from the Chiefs,” Burr said. “Andy Reid is too fat to do that.” During a late ..read more

Sign In The Celtics took a commanding 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals on Wednesday, all but ensuring they’ll capture Banner 18 at some point over the next week. Joe Mazzulla doesn’t care. The NBA has seen 156 teams build 3-0 playoff leads, and each of them has gone on to win. It’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the Mavericks will find themselves in Cancun sooner rather than later, but Mazzulla wants to keep the C’s on their toes. “You’ve gotta understand, we’re just as vulnerable — if not more vulnerable — than they are,” Mazzulla said postgame, per league-provided video. “We have to p ..read more

Sign In The Boston Celtics sit just one win away from Banner 18. It’s something we’ve always known this core group was capable of, but the timing has never really been right. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, the co-leaders of this extended run to the top, have been within reaching distance of a championship for more than half a decade. It was far too early in 2018, where they were ahead of schedule and playing without the two “stars” on their roster — Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. The Miami Heat had historic shooting nights and rode Jimmy Butler to a pair of conference finals upsets over Bost ..read more

Sign In Say this about Luka Doncic: His performance in Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Celtics sure brought out emotions in people. The Dallas Mavericks star had a forgettable performance Wednesday night, fouling out of an eventual Boston win that puts the Mavs on the brink and in danger of seeing the Celtics raise the Larry O’Brien Trophy on Friday night. Nothing about Doncic’s performance in Game 3 was especially impressive, and he has been largely criticized for his poor defensive play and bad attitude. ESPN analyst and former Boston Celtics big man Kendrick Perkins went searching for ..read more

Sign In Kristaps Porzingis sitting out Game 3 of the NBA Finals set the stage for an unheralded Celtic to leave his mark on the series. Xavier Tillman gave Boston 11 valuable minutes off the bench in the visitors’ 106-99 win over Dallas at American Airlines Center. Tillman, acquired by the Celtics in an early February trade, played stout defense, pulled down four rebounds and even knocked down a 3-pointer late in the third quarter when Boston gave itself some breathing room. It was Jaylen Brown who found Tillman in the corner, and the Celtics star had no doubt the fourth-year pro was going to ..read more

Sign In Jaylen Brown arguably was the Celtics’ best player through the first three games of the NBA Finals, and he might get the hardware to back up that claim. Boston on Wednesday survived an embarrassing collapse in Game 3 of the NBA Finals when it beat the Mavericks, 106-99, at American Airlines Center. Dallas came back from a 21-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but Luka Doncic fouling out and a clutch bucket from Brown helped the Celtics take a 3-0 series lead. Brown and Jayson Tatum notoriously have not cared who the best player among them is despite the constant debate about the subj ..read more
