NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Who will the Cleveland Cavaliers play in the NBA Finals, the Rockets or Warriors? We might know which team advances from the Western Conference final tonight as the clubs square off in Oakland. The Warriors enter the game with a 3-1 lead after Houston's 128-115 win two nights ago.

As they fight to not be eliminated the Rockets got some good news yesterday as the NBA announced that big man Dwight Howard will not be suspended because of a flagrant foul in Game 4. The league revisited the replays of the call and determined it would not elevate the penalty to a flagrant-2 foul, which could have led to a suspension.

Sitting in the wings are the Cavaliers, who completed a four-game sweep of the Atlanta Hawks last night. The team led by LeBron James dominated the last game of the series as they won 118-88.

By wrapping things up early the Cavs earned the right to rest up before the Finals begin on June 4 in the city of the Western champ.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

CHICAGO (AP) -- Anaheim's Ducks have the opportunity tonight to close out their best-of-seven NHL Western Conference final with the Blackhawks. The Ducks took a 3-2 series lead two nights ago with a 5-4 win in overtime on home ice. The teams have exchanged wins in the series with the Ducks taking Games 1, 3 and 5 while the Blackhawks won Games 2 and 4.

In their Game 5 victory the Ducks took charge early by scoring three first-period goals while holding the Blackhawks scoreless.

A seventh and deciding game would take place in Anaheim Saturday night.

SOCCER-CORRUPTION

ZURICH (AP) -- Allegations of corruption have run rampant around FIFA (FEE'-fuh), the governing body of soccer worldwide, for years.

Dawn raids today by Swiss federal authorities on FIFA headquarters and a luxury hotel in Zurich supported separate federal cases in the United States and Switzerland. The U.S. probe relates to racketeering, money laundering and kickbacks in marketing deals for soccer tournaments in the U.S., Brazil and across Latin America.

Two of FIFA's eight vice presidents and a new member of its executive committee were among seven officials arrested in Zurich.

The Swiss investigation is about wrongdoing in the controversial 2018-2022 World Cup bidding contests which gave hosting rights to Russia and Qatar.

FIFA, meanwhile, said Friday's presidential election would go ahead as planned with Sepp Blatter going for a fifth term. Blatter was not named in either investigation.

FIFA also ruled out a revote of the World Cups won by Russia in 2018 and Qatar (GUH'-tur) in 2022.
