-- David Ortiz had a front-row seat to watch the Celtics beat the Cavaliers on Tuesday night, as he sat courtside in an Al Horford jersey with Wyc Grousbeck at TD Garden.

And he had a special message for LeBron James before the game.

“LeBron, we’re coming to get you,” Ortiz said in a video on his Instagram. “We’re coming to get you. You know how we do it.”

Patriots Dont’a Hightower, Kyle Van Noy, Stephon Gilmore and Devin and Jason McCourty were also in attendance.

-- Golfer Lucas Glover's wife, Krista, was arrested on Saturday after she allegedly attacked the former U.S. Open champion and his mother.

She was arrested in Florida after fighting with Glover after his poor performance in this weekend's Players Championship. She was released the following morning after posting $2,500 bond.

Glover and his mother suffered minor but visible injuries and Krista was taken to jail in handcuffs.

Glover tweeted a statement on Tuesday:

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We've got to be tougher. I think they're playing tougher than we are. We see that. They're being physical. They're gooning the game up, and we've got to do the same thing." -- Cavs coach Ty Lue, on the Celtics after the Cavs’ 107-94 loss to Boston in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals
