The Celtics have lost three of four to fall behind Toronto in the Eastern Conference playoff race.The Cavaliers, who have won three straight, are 5½ games behind Boston. To help make a push for their fourth straight NBA finals, Cleveland traded away six players and acquired four at the deadline.“All of our new guys performed and played well,” coach Tyronn Lue said. “So that’s a good sign.”THE TRUTHPierce watched the game from a baseline seat, under the basket where the Celtics scored 42 points in the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the finals to clinch their 17th NBA championship. On the other side of the basket were former coach Doc Rivers and former teammates Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Antoine Walker.Timeouts featured tribute videos from Rivers, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and Pierce’s college coach, Roy Williams.After his family joined him in hoisting the retired number banner to the rafters, Pierce said having his number retired by the NBA’s most-decorated franchise is the ultimate honor — bigger than the Hall of Fame.“When you’re forever with the Celtics, you’re forever,” he said.JAMES INJURYJames banged into Aron Baynes in the lane with about five minutes left in the first quarter and hobbled off the court, favoring his right leg. He came back in with nine minutes left in the half and hit a jumper to tie it 40-all before his outburst that helped the Cavs pull away. Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH He sat out the fourth quarter, losing the chance for an 11th triple-double this season and third straight. James said he took a knee to the quad muscle but hoped to be fully recovered before playing the Thunder on Tuesday night.“Baynes is a big boy. He should be on ’Game of Thrones,’” James said. “Him and Steven Adams, and I’ve got to see him next.”IT SUPPORTThe trades mooted a mini controversy over whether the Celtics would honor Isaiah Thomas in his return to Boston. A fan favorite during his two-plus seasons in green, Thomas was traded last summer in the deal that brought Irving to the Celtics.Thomas balked at being recognized on his first visit back with the Cavaliers because he was injured. And Pierce balked at sharing the stage with him on Sunday, Cleveland’s only other trip to Boston.But Thomas was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers at the deadline, meaning he isn’t scheduled to return to TD Garden this year.SMART UPDATEStevens said Marcus Smart continues to recover from a lacerated right hand, which has kept him out since he cut his hand on broken glass at the team hotel on Jan. 24 and needed stitches to close the wound.“Not going to expect to see him on Wednesday night,” Stevens said. “Hopeful that he will be back and ready to go after the All-Star break. But we’ll see.”UP NEXT LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. As the Cavaliers opened a 27-point lead midway through the fourth, the crowd began chanting “We want Paul Pierce!” But he remained in his baseline seat, awaiting the postgame ceremony that would raise his No. 34 to the TD Garden rafters — the 23rd person in the history of the NBA’s most-decorated franchise to be so honored.“It definitely gave me chills, especially with LeBron out there,” Pierce told reporters afterward. “I wanted to be out there.”The current Celtics, who have spent much of the season in first place in the East, could have used him.“Yeah, we stunk,” coach Brad Stevens said. “But they were really good. They had a lot to do with that.”PLAYOFF RACEADVERTISEMENT With the former Celtics great waiting to see his No. 34 raised to the Boston Garden rafters, James shook off a first-quarter leg injury to score 24 points with 10 assists and eight rebounds to give Cleveland a 121-99 victory on Sunday.In their first appearances since being acquired at the trade deadline, Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points, Rodney Hood had 15, George Hill had 12 and Larry Nance Jr. scored five.

Al Boum Photo wins Willie Mullins his first Cheltenham Gold Cup

first_img Willie Mullins and jockey Paul Townend with the Gold Cup. Photograph: Tom Jenkins/The Guardian Better by far to savour the moment, if or when it finally arrived, and this success was a testament, too, to Mullins’s loyalty to his jockey. Townend and Al Boum Photo were involved in a bizarre incident at Punchestown last spring where horse and jockey suddenly veered off at the final fence with a Grade One race seemingly at their mercy. There was never any question, however, that Townend, the long-standing number two to Ruby Walsh at the stable, would keep the ride.“The early [Gold Cups] were probably disappointing but you get used to it,” Mullins said. “I had probably resigned myself to never winning a Gold Cup, so I didn’t really obsess about it or get too disappointed about it. Racing has been very good to me. I have a fantastic life in racing and I resigned myself to thinking, ‘If I never win, so be it.’ You only get one chance to win it each year and, when three of them were gone, I thought it was another year like that and so I probably had all my disappointment out of me early in the race.” Read more Support The Guardian Share on WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest With a circuit of Cheltenham still to run here on Friday Willie Mullins’s hopes of filling the infuriating, Gold Cup-shaped hole in his record-breaking career at the Festival were hanging by a thread. Three of his four runners in this season’s race, the latest of more than two dozen Mullins had sent to the start over the years, were already out of the running. Kemboy, the best of them according to the betting, got no further than the first.Having saddled the runner-up no fewer than six times, Mullins feared the worst. But when he trained his binoculars to Al Boum Photo, the last member of his squad still standing, he quickly realised that 2019 might finally be his year after all. Willie Mullins Share on Messenger Cheltenham Festival 2019 Two fatalities on Gold Cup day dampen spirits at Cheltenham Festival View gallery “With three of them out before the first circuit had finished I was just thinking, another year of disappointment,” the trainer said afterwards. “But looking at the field, every time I came to Paul [Townend], I realised he was so well-balanced on the horse, with a loose rein and the horse just going along in a rhythm, fence by fence. I thought, we have a life here.”There was still a good deal of ground to cover. Native River, last year’s front-running winner, was at the head of the field once again and apparently still full of running. Clan Des Obeaux, the King George winner, was hugging the rail under Harry Cobden and tracking the leaders going well, while Presenting Percy, the favourite, was still close enough to make an impression if he could find his Festival-winning form from 12 months ago.Yet Al Boum Photo, unraced since winning at tiny Tramore on New Year’s Day, was going best of all. “About the fourth or fifth last he needed a jump,” Mullins said. “You could see a long stride coming and Paul asked for it, and he got it. I thought, wow, there’s plenty of petrol left in his tank. And I know Paul’s body language, so I knew he hadn’t at all gone for anything and he still thought he had plenty left.” Cheltenham Festival Share on LinkedIn There was so much left that Al Boum Photo hit the front turning in and quickly opened a useful lead. Native River dropped away while Clan Des Obeaux could find no more inside the final quarter-mile and another Irish-trained runner, Anibale Fly, was the only danger at the last. He stayed on strongly up the hill but, while the gap was slowly closing, Al Boum Photo had more than enough left to get home by two and a half lengths.“He met the last perfectly and I looked up at winning post and what was behind,” Mullins said. “I knew that 99 times out of 100 he was going to make it this year.”He did, and two decades of disappointment and frustration for Mullins melted away in a moment. His first runner in the race, Florida Pearl, was the 5-2 favourite in 1999 but finished only third. A year later he was the first of the trainer’s famous half-dozen runners-up while in 2014 the agony was played out over the course of a 15-minute stewards’ inquiry after On His Own was short-headed by Lord Windermere, who had impeded the second on the run-in. The stewards, in what must have been a marginal decision, allowed the result to stand. Mullins, ever the sportsman, did not press the owners to appeal.
