The NBA league offices decided that Rafer Alston’s slap of Eddie House during Game 2 warranted a one game suspension.
I mean who wouldn’t get frustrated when an opponent hits three after three in your face?
Houses gloating or taunting is a mute point in this case as the Celtics sharp-shooter scored 30 points for the C’s off of the bench by going 4-for-4 from behind the arc, which technically warranted all the talking in the world.
Luckily for House and the Celtics, the Magic will be without their starting point guard for Game 3 because of House’s somewhat big mouth and Alston’s somewhat big mistake. Alston’s slap of House’s head came after the Celtics guard drained a three-pointer from the right side in Boston’s 112-94 rout of the Magic.
Without Alston, Stan Van Gundy and the Magic are left with Anthony Johnson as their starting point guard. Game 3 will be play on Friday night at Amway Arena.

We had a good time until they forced me to drink too much beer.
I ended up a little crooked in my chair. Had a good time though!
According to ESPN and The Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.
The former Red Sox slugger faces a suspension of 50 games as the penalty is expected to be announced later on Thursday. The earliest date Ramirez could return from his suspension is July 3.

The Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic may have been playing on the Garden parque Wednesday night but Eddie House and Rajon Rondo truly held center stage as the two guards led Boston to a 112-94 victory over the Magic to even the Eastern Conference semifinal at one game apiece.
Rajon Rondo had his third triple-double of this posteason tying Larry Bird’s franchise record. Rondo had 15 points, 18 assists, and 11 rebounds for Doc Rivers and the Celtics as Eddie House scored 31 points, a career high, off of the Celtics bench while also adding four rebounds and two assists.
Ray Allen added 22 points for the C’s as Kendrick Perkins went 7-for-10 from the field scoring 16 points.
In a pivotal Game 2 in Boston, Paul Pierce was a non-factor by getting in early foul trouble, registering his third foul early in the second quarter and fourth foul just four minutes into the third. House went 11-for-14 from the floor and went 4-for-4 from behind the arc.
House sparked the Celtics faithful and delievered exactly what the Doctor (Rivers) ordered from the Boston bench.
The two teams now head to Orlando to square off in Game 3 on Friday night.
Just Masteron (2-2) gave up six runs through 6 1/3 innings of work to hand Boston its first loss at home in ten games. Carl Pavano led the Tribe with a six innings of two-run ball as Aaron Laffey pitched the last three innings for the Indians allowing only two hits to the Bo-Sox hitters.
Tim Wakefield will take the hill for Terry Francona and the Red Sox tomorrow, squaring off against Cleveland’s Jeremy Sowers. Here’s a full recap of tonight’s game.
McKenzie, seen as the possible future replacement of Tedy Bruschi at inside linebacker, tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during coverage drills in Patriots mini-camp.
