Tuesday Sports Update: NBA, Baseball

By Jim McCoy Tue 22nd April Sports
UNDATED (AP) - There are three NBA playoff games this evening and the Hawks, Nets and Wizards are all looking to take a 2-0 lead in their respective series. In Chicago, the Bulls are entertaining the Wizards after dropping the first game, while in Toronto the Raptors are playing host to Brooklyn, and in Indianapolis it'll be the Pacers and Hawks. UNDATED (AP) - There were two NBA playoff games last night and the Clippers and Grizzlies were able to even up their best of seven series at 1-1. The Clippers beat the Warriors 139-98 while the Grizzlies got the Thunder 111-105 in overtime. UNDATED (AP) - Three NBA teams are looking for a new head coach. The Knicks on Monday dismissed Mike Woodson while the Jazz let Tyrone Corbin go. For Rick Adelman, the decision was his to make, and he announced his retirement after a 23-season NBA career. UNDATED (AP) - Three pitchers will be gunning for their fourth win of the season tonight. Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals is 3-1 and this evening is facing the Mets. Minnesota's Kyle Gibson is unbeaten after three decisions and tonight is going up against the Rays, and Hyun-Jin Ryu (hee-YUHN'-jihn YOO) of the Dodgers takes his 3-1 record into a game against the Phillies. DETROIT (AP) - Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale will likely miss his scheduled start against the Tigers tonight in Detroit because of what manager Robin Ventura describes as general muscular soreness. In his last outing he threw 127 pitches. The Tigers are sending Justin Verlander to the mound tonight.
