Danny Ainge Is a Hands On GM


Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge was spotted in TV replays throwing a towel in the air to distract the Cleveland Cavaliers at the foul line. 

Ainge was sitting in the first seat to the right of Cleveland's basket. He tossed the white towel during forward J.J. Hickson's second attempt with 1:53 remaining in the third quarter of Boston's 104-86 win over the Cavaliers on Monday night. Hickson made his second free throw.

Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said he saw Ainge's towel toss.

"That was interesting to see that happen during the flow of the game, from Danny Ainge," Brown said. "If it's within the rules, hey, at this time, you do whatever you can to win. As long as it's within the rules."
