UNDATED - The Warriors and Spurs return to San Antonio tonight for the start of what amounts to a best-of-three series. The teams have split the four first-round games of the NBA Western Conference semifinal series, with each winning once on the road.

Each team has a key player hobbled. Golden State's Stephen Curry needed an injection before Game 4 for the third time in the playoffs to ease the discomfort in his sprained left ankle. He responded with 22 points, six rebounds and four assists in the Warriors win.

San Antonio's Tony Parker is nursing a bruised left calf. He was limited to 17 point on 6-of-17 shooting Sunday.

After tonight's game, the series returns to Oakland for Game 6 Thursday.

Indiana looks to take firm control of its Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Knicks tonight. The Pacers are up 2-1 and have the home court, where they are 4-0 this post-season. Indiana has won by an average of 16.5 points at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in the playoffs.

Things are looking good for the Knicks from a health standpoint. The NBA's top sixth man, J.R. Smith, and Kenyon Martin have both missed the last two practices will illnesses and are questionable. Guard Iman Shumpert sat out Monday's practice with a sore knee and coach Mike Woodson says he's probable for tonight's game.
