SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The Spurs will again be without injured stars Tony Parker and Kawhi (kuh-WY’) Leonard as they try to stave off elimination from the NBA playoffs tonight. They host the Golden State Warriors, who are looking to advance to their third straight NBA Finals. The Warriors lead the best-of-seven series three games to none.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Anaheim Ducks are hoping to play at least one more home game this season. To do that, they’ll have to win on the road tonight. The Nashville Predators hold a 3-2 lead in the NHL Western Conference final, and host tonight’s Game 6.
HOUSTON (AP) — Houston still has the best record in baseball, but the AL West leaders are looking to end a three-game losing streak tonight. Brad Peacock makes his first start this season in the opener of the Astros’ four-game series against Detroit. Michael Fulmer, last season’s AL Rookie of the Year, goes for the visiting Tigers.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Ubaldo Jimenez hasn’t won in more than a month, but the Orioles right-hander is getting another chance against the Twins this evening. Jimenez is 5-3 lifetime against Minnesota. The Twins are tied with Cleveland for the AL Central lead, while Baltimore is just a half game back of the Yankees in the East.
NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL says cornerback Darrelle Revis will not face discipline after he was arrested in a fight in Pittsburgh in February. Revis faced four felony counts, including aggravated assault, but those charges were dismissed in March. The Jets released the 31-year-old Revis in March shortly after the NFL’s free agency period began.
