623-2981 -- Ext 321, 431, 432, 323-325
MEMPHIS, Tennesee---Marc Gasol had 26 points
and 14 rebounds as the Memphis Grizzlies advanced
to the Western Conference semifinals by beating
the Portland Trail Blazers 99-93 on Wednesday
The Grizzlies reached the West semifinals for the
third time in five years. They will play Game 1 on
Sunday at Golden State. Memphis closed out Portland
in five games despite not having point guard Mike
Conley for a second straight game as he recovers from
surgery to repair broken bones near his left eye.
Courtney Lee added 20 points for Memphis, Zach
Randolph had 16 and Jeff Green added ten off the
bench. CJ McCollum led Portland with a career-high
33 points. Damian Lillard had 22 points, and LaMarcus
Aldridge had 14 before fouling out late as they com-
bined to shoot 13 of 37. The Trail Blazers lost in the
first round for the seventh time in their last eight
HAWKS 107, NETS 97
ATLANTA---Al Horford and Jeff Teague scored 20
points apiece, helping top-seeded Atlanta hold off
Brooklyn in an NBA playoff series that s closer than
anyone envisioned. Shaking off a dislocated finger,
Horford flew around the court in the fourth quarter
when it looked like Brooklyn was on the verge of
bouncing all the way back from an early 17-point
deficit. In the final minute, Teague darted into the
lane for a couple of baskets that sealed another hard-
Atlanta leads 3-2 in the best-of-seven series, which
heads back to Brooklyn for Game 6 Friday night. The
Hawks can wrap it up, but the eighth-seeded Nets
seem intent on taking it to the limit. Alan Anderson
led the Nets with 23 points off the bench. Jarrett Jack
added 18 as the Brooklyn backups totally dominated
Atlanta s reserves. DeMarre Carroll scored 24 points,
pushing the Hawks out to a big lead. But the Nets,
as they did in each of the first two games in Atlanta,
came back to make it another close one.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar briefly
examined at LA hospital
LOS ANGELES---Kareem Abdul-Jabbar briefly
returned to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre on
Wednesday, two weeks after the 68-year-old NBA
career scoring leader had quadruple coronary bypass

experiencing some dizziness following his April 16
quadruple bypass surgery," the hospital said in a state-
ment. "He contacted his physicians who told him to
come to the emergency department at Ronald Reagan
UCLA Medical Center. He was evaluated by his surgeon
and cardiologist. After a battery of tests, they found
"Abdul-Jabbar was discharged from the emergency
department and is back home continuing his recovery.
His surgeon, Dr Richard Shemin, said it is not uncom-
mon for patients to experience some symptoms that
require ruling out serious problems following major

by coming in to see his doctors." Earlier Wednesday---
before the episode---Abdul-Jabbar tweeted that he
was "doing fine & feeling better everyday." Abdul-
Jabbar scored 38,387 points during a 20-year career
with the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers
