SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs shot 53 percent from the field and set a team playoff record by draining 14 three-pointers in a 105-83 win over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 1 of the NBA's Western Conference finals. The Spurs saw a 17-point, first-quarter lead shrink to six in the second half before an 11-1 run put them ahead by 16 heading into the fourth quarter. Tony Parker finished with 20 points and nine assists, while Kawhi (kah-WY') Leonard added 18 points.

OTTAWA (AP) — Colin Greening scored at 7:39 of double-overtime as the Ottawa Senators beat Pittsburgh 2-1 to pull within two games to one in the NHL's Eastern Conference semifinals. The Penguins were moments away from a 1-0 victory and a 3-0 series lead until Daniel Alfredsson scored with 29 seconds left in regulation. Craig Anderson turned back 49 shots and was perfect after Tyler Kennedy scored with 67 seconds left in the second period.

BOSTON (AP) — Johnny Boychuk snapped a 2-2 tie midway through the second period before the Boston Bruins added a pair of third-period goals to beat the New York Rangers 5-2 and take a 2-0 lead in the NHL's Eastern Conference semifinals. Brad Marchand (MAHR'-shahnd) provided an insurance tally after scoring the overtime goal in the opener. Tuukka (TOO'-kah) Rask made 35 saves and blanked the Rangers after Rick Nash beat him 3:20 into the second period.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Tampa Bay's Matt Moore is baseball's first eight-game winner. The left-hander is 8-0 after holding Baltimore to a run and five hits over seven innings of the Rays' 3-1 win over the Orioles. Moore has won nine straight decisions, breaking the franchise record of eight set last year by David Price.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers have placed second baseman Ian Kinsler on the 15-day disabled list because of bruised ribs. Kinsler is hitting .302 with seven home runs, 20 RBIs and 24 runs scored in 40 games for the AL West leaders.
