SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The second round of the NBA playoffs tips off tonight in the Alamo City when the San Antonio Spurs host the Oklahoma City Thunder. Both teams breezed into this round.
The Spurs swept Memphis in four games and have been off since last Sunday. The Spurs won each game by an average of 22 points.
The Thunder had only a bit more of a problem with Dallas in the first round. It took Oklahoma City five games to eliminate the Mavs. Oklahoma City comes into this game on a three-game winning streak in the playoffs.
UNDATED (AP) -- The New York Islanders are trying for a two-game sweep on the road this afternoon as they play the Lightning in Tampa in a second-round NHL playoff series. The Islanders, who are in the second round for the first time since 1993, rolled to a 5-3 win in the series opener.
Vezina (VEH'-zih-nuh) Trophy finalist Ben Bishop allowed four goals on 13 shots in that Game 1 loss. Lightning coach Jon Cooper says he is confident he'll bounce back today.
In Washington, the Capitals own a 1-0 lead over Pittsburgh following their 4-3 overtime win Thursday night when T.J. Oshie (OH'-shee) got the hat trick. The Penguins are looking for more production from their captain, Sidney Crosby, in tonight's Game 2.
Crosby was ineffective offensively and on the ice for three Washington Capitals goals Thursday night. His line was shut down by the Capitals' top trio of Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Oshie. It's something that Crosby can't let happen again in Game 2.
UNDATED (AP) -- The Cub-Braves game in Chicago has been postponed because of bad weather. That was slated to be one of five day games on the Major League schedule. The Washington Nationals, who ended a three-game losing streak with a victory at Busch Stadium Friday night, are facing the Cardinals in St. Louis. The Giants continue their weekend series at Citi Field against the Mets while Detroit is at Minnesota and Houston is playing at Oakland.
Under the lights, Toronto is at Tampa Bay, the Chicago White Sox are in Baltimore, Philadelphia hosts Cleveland in interleague play, Pittsburgh is home to Cincinnati, Milwaukee hosts Miami, the New York Yankees are in Boston, the L.A. Angels are in Texas, Arizona is home to Colorado, San Diego visits the L.A. Dodgers and Seattle hosts Kansas City.
TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- NASCAR returns to Talladega Superspeedway this weekend with qualifying for Sunday's race taking place today. Carl Edwards enters the weekend as the hottest driver going, with wins in the last two Sprint Cup races. The defending champion is Dale Earnhardt Jr., who held off Jimmie Johnson by less than two-tenths of a second.
SOCHI, Russia (AP) -- Formula One leader Nico (NEE'-koh) Rosberg has won the pole position for Sunday's Russian Grand Prix while Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton was 10th after another engine failure ended his qualifying session. Rosberg leads the overall world standings by 36 points over Hamilton.
Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen (KEE'-mee RAY'-koh-nehn) was the third fastest qualifier with teammate Sebastian Vettel seventh.
AVONDALE, La. (AP) -- The third round of the PGA's Zurich Classic is in progress in New Orleans. Brian Stuard starts in front at 12-under with Jamie Lovemark and Jhonattan Vegas one shot off the lead.
World No. 1 Jason Day is five shots back of Stuard.
IRVING, Texas (AP) -- The midway lead at the LPGA's Texas Shootout is held by American Gerina Piller. After an opening-round 67, she followed up with a 6-under 65 to stand 10 under par. South Korea's Eun-Hee Ji is alone in second at 9-under.
NFL DRAFT-DAY 3
CHICAGO (AP) --The final four rounds of the NFL draft are today in Chicago. Besides scouring the land for obscure picks, NFL teams also bestow an honor on one individual. The final player taken in the draft earns the nickname "Mr. Irrelevant," so there will be some interest right up until the final pick in the seventh round.
