Another aspect for CC Sabathia to celebrate: He didn't hurt his shoulder this season, which means his $25 million vests for 2017.

CC Sabathia ends a very good comeback season. A year ago at this time, Sabthia was entering alcohol rehab and his spot in the rotation was in doubt. After barely beating out Ivan Nova for the fifth starter spot in spring training, Sabathia will finish the year with a 3.91 ERA after his 7 1/3 innings, one run, four-hit, eight strikeout and two-walk performance.

Joakim Noah finds a trailing Kristaps Porzingis for an open 3-pointer, which Jeff Hornacek notes was taken from '4-5 feet' behind the line.

After flirting with having Bartolo Colon pitch on short rest Friday, the Mets intend to stick with their original plan. So Robert Gsellman will open the series against the Phillies, followed by Colon on Saturday. Ideally, the Mets will have clinched before Sunday. That way, Noah Syndergaard can throw a couple of innings in the regular-season finale as a tune-up for the wild-card game rather than making a full start Sunday.

In the fourth, David Ortiz walked and was pinch-run for by Brock Holt. Ortiz received a pretty nice cheer as he left the field, but nothing too special. That ends his career at Yankee Stadium. He will probably go down as the most impactful figure in the rivalry since Babe Ruth.

Yankee Stadium has become Fenway South. Xander Bogaerts just tied the game in the fourth inning with a home run and the crowd erupted. It is 1-1.

David Ortiz got mostly a standing O in his first at-bat, then a K. CC Sabathia just struck him out after a lot of fans -- many with Red Sox jerseys on -- cheered him at Yankee Stadium.

Doc Rivers said he doesn't foresee KG accepting a coaching job this season: "I don't think he wants to coach. He's not that crazy. Who would ever want to do that? ... There's no way that's going to happen. I think he has a teaching future. This [situation] is as organic as it could be. I just told him to come around and figure it out. Do whatever you want. Whatever he does, I'm good with, because I do think he can have a very positive impact on us."

Doc Rivers on Kevin Garnett's presence at Clippers training camp: "KG was phenomenal today. This morning, before practice, he had a teaching clinic that you would pay a lot of money to see. It was great. It was great for Blake [Griffin] and [DeAndre Jordan] and the young guys as well. It's great to have him around. He's a great teacher. We know him as a great player. I knew him as a great teacher. He'll be really good for us."

The Yankees gave David Ortiz two gifts. David Cone and Jacoby Ellsbury presented Ortiz a leatherbound book with well-wishes letters from Yankees. Second, Mariano Rivera unveiled an oil painting with Ortiz standing at home plate tipping his cap to the fans. They played "Sweet Caroline" to close out the ceremony.

PA announcer Paul Olden just said, "The Yankees would like to put the rivalry" aside to honor Big Papi. When Ortiz was introduced with his family, there were mostly cheers.
