Enough is enough Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune I can live with the one-game clip. But if I were dean of discipline, Rajon Rondo also would have to agree to some conditions. Start with publicly apologizing to official Marc Davis. Acknowledge that you intentionally bumped him. He didn't get in your way, as you pathetically claimed. Go to some elementary schools and tell the kids that what you did was inexcusable. They look up to you; they're watching you. Why should they respect referees after seeing what you did?

Andray Blatche had 31 points and 11 rebounds as the visiting Washington Wizards opened a 28-point first-half lead and held off a late flurry of 3-pointers from Nate Robinson to beat the Boston Celtics, 106-96. Backup JaVale McGee had 14 points with 11 rebounds for the Wizards, who have won four of six since ending a 16-game losing streak. Rajon Rondo had 17 points and 12 assists for playoff-bound Boston, which lost for the fifth time in seven games and was once again booed by the home crowd.

Before the Washington Wizards hosted the Boston Celtics on Sunday in the first game of a home-and-home set, coach Flip Saunders said he wanted to see John Wall play with more enthusiasm. Wall sulked through the Wizards' loss in Milwaukee on Friday and Saunders criticized his effort, claiming there would be consequences if he couldn't handle his emotions better. "I told him, if he doesn't play hard and he doesn't have a smile on his face, I'm going to take him out," Saunders said of Wall.

The Boston Celtics are heading to the second round of the NBA playoffs and a matchup with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ray Allen scored 24 points, making five 3-pointers in the second half, to help host Boston beat Miami 96-86 in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series on Tuesday night and eliminate the Heat. With Heat star Dwyane Wade due to become a free agent — along with James — it could be an eventful summer in Miami. Boston advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals thanks to 16 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists from Rajon Rondo.

BOSTON — The Lakers were dominant down low, the Celtics unable to stop Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, when good fortune smiled upon the Celtics as a most unusual event took place, something called the start of the fourth quarter. Gasol had one shot, Bynum had two over the final 12 minutes, and the Celtics evened up the NBA Finals with a 103-94 victory in Game 2 on Sunday. Gasol had 25 points but only one in the fourth quarter, and Bynum had 21 in the game, four in the fourth quarter, part of the reason the Lakers headed to Boston in a deadlocked series that resumes Tuesday with Game 3 at certain-to-be-raucous TD Garden.

LOS ANGELES — The Celtics' highlight reel from their Game 1 loss to the Lakers, which lacked ample material anyway, was missing a player who's usually good for a few neck-turning clips: Rajon Rondo. That's not to say the wiry point guard didn't have decent numbers in the Celtics' 102-89 loss. He had 13 points, eight assists and six rebounds. But he wasn't able to coordinate the Celtics' offense in his usual ways, in part because of the Lakers' — and especially Kobe Bryant's — defense.

Give it to Allen Paul Doyle Hartford Courant It's tempting to give the ball to a young gun such as Derrick Rose, Chris Paul or Kevin Durant, but we'll wait until they win a ring before crowning any as Mr. Clutch. Elite scorers such as Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Paul Pierce, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade deserve consideration, but our choice is the best long-range shooter in NBA history. The Celtics' Ray Allen has shown an ability to create his shot and bury a jumper no matter the circumstances.

Who dug you guys up? A funny thing happened to the Boston Celtics on the way to their eternal rest. Just before the funeral procession reached the cemetery, someone looked inside the hearse and found the decedent was alive. Now it's like one of those New Orleans funerals with the band breaking out into Dixieland and everyone strutting their way home — but with the guests of honor in the lead. I actually love the Celtics, although I'm not sure it shows, judging by some of my e-mail from New England.

AUSTIN, Texas - From the national championship ring on the fingers of the respective coaches to the number of players that are used off the respective benches, Kentucky and Michigan State take many similarities into today's NCAA tournament regional final at the Erwin Center. But the most intriguing parallel between the second-seeded Wildcats and the fifth-seeded Spartans could determine which team advances to the Final Four later this week in St. Louis: which starting freshman point guard has the biggest impact.
