NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Playing in front of their own fans the Brooklyn Nets stopped the Atlanta Hawks in game 3 of their NBA playoff series 91-83. The victory reduces the Hawks' lead over the Nets in the best of seven series to 2-1. Brook Lopez had 22 points and 13 rebounds and Thaddeus Young added 18 points and 11 rebounds in the win. The Nets seized control with an 18-0 run spanning the third and fourth quarters after the Hawks grabbed their first lead since the opening basket. Game 4 will be played on the Nets home court Monday night.

That's one of four NBA playoff games on top today. Chicago's Bulls can earn some rest if they finish a sweep of Milwaukee. Their main man has been Derrick Rose, who had 34 points and eight assists in 48 minutes of Chicago's 113-106 double-overtime victory on Thursday.

Similarly, Golden State can eliminate New Orleans with another victory in the Big Easy. On Thursday, the Warriors roared from 20 points down in the fourth quarter to stun the Pelicans 123-199 in OT. Steph Curry had 40 in logging 44 points in that one.

Tonight's NBA schedule concludes with Portland hosting Memphis as the Grizzlies take a 2-0 lead into the Rose City. The Blazers are looking for a better performance from All-Star guard Damian Lillard, who has shot just 10 of 37 in the first two games. He has missed 10 of his 11 3-point tries.

NBA-MAVERICKS

DALLAS (AP) -- Coach Rick Carlisle of the Dallas Mavericks has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for criticizing officials after a loss to Houston that left the Mavs trailing 3-0 in their first-round playoff series. He was fined for comments about a play early in the fourth quarter when Dwight Howard appeared to push Devin Harris out of bounds as they chased a loose ball. Howard grabbed the ball and passed to a teammate for a 3-pointer.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The New York Islanders have forced a deciding seventh game of their NHL playoff series with Washington. Playing on their home ice the Isles beat the Capitals 3-1 to even things up at 3-3. Game seven will take place Monday in Washington.

Nikolay Kulemin (KOOL'-ay-mihn) scored the go-ahead goal with 9:27 left and Islanders captain John Tavares had a goal and assist. Nick Leddy had two assists in what could still be the franchise's final game at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

The Tampa Bay Lightning had considerable momentum entering today's Game 5 against Detroit on their home ice. Last time out the Lightning roared from a 2-0 deficit in the final five and a-half minutes in Detroit to beat the Red Wings 3-2 in overtime and even the series at two games apiece.

The Chicago Blackhawks can finish off Nashville with a victory over the Predators tonight at United Center. The Blackhawks lead that series 3-2. Last time out rookie Filip Forsberg had the hat trick as Nashville scored a Game 5 victory on its home ice.

Finally tonight, Daniel Sedin (suh-DEEN') and Vancouver are hoping to draw even in their first-round series against Calgary when they take on the Flames in Game 6 in Calgary.

MLB-ROYALS/WHITE SOX

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Major League Baseball has come down on seven members of the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox for their roles in a brawl earlier this week. Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura was suspended seven games, fellow starter Edinson Volquez suspended five games, and outfielder Lorenzo Cain and reliever Kelvin Herrera suspended two games apiece for taking part in the benches-clearing fight Thursday night.

White Sox pitchers Chris Sale and Jeff Samardzija (suh-MAHR'-juh) were suspended five games.

All six players were fined an undisclosed amount, along with White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers. The Royals-White Sox game on Saturday was rained out, meaning all suspensions will begin Sunday unless a player chooses to appeal.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- After losing to the Indians 13-1 Friday night the Tigers roared back for a 4-1 win. Alfredo Simon (al-FRAY'doh SY'-muhn) got the victory while the loser was last-minute replacement T.J. House. He was called on to work when Trevor Bauer called in sick. For Simon the victory was No. 4 on the season against no defeats. On offense Victor Martinez drove in three of the Tigers' runs.

Overall there were seven scheduled day games on the agenda. That said, a suspended game and a scheduled game between the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals have been postponed because of rain. The teams will resume Friday's rain-suspended game with the score tied 2-2 at 1:10 p.m. on Sunday, followed by the regularly scheduled game. No makeup date was announced for Saturday's game.

Also postponed because of bad weather was the Cubs at Reds game.

There are nine more games coming up tonight.

MLB-RED SOX

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox have placed outfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain. Victorino sustained the injury while running the bases against Tampa Bay on Wednesday. He has not played since then, so the move is retroactive to Thursday. Victorino is batting just .143 in 12 games this season.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Athletics have placed infielder/outfielder Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list with torn cartilage in his left knee.

AVONDALE, La. (AP) -- Third round play in the PGA's Zurich Classic has been suspended because of bad weather. The second round was completed earlier in the day with Jason Day on top at 12-under. He'll start the third round one shot in front of Hudson Swafford, Daniel Berger and Chris Stroud.
