OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Kawhi Leonard dropped in 30 points and the Toronto Raptors hit 17 3-pointers to beat the Golden State Warriors, 123-109 and take a two-games-to-one lead in the NBA Finals. Kyle Lowry hit five treys while scoring 23 points, and Danny Green scored all 18 of his points from beyond the arc to help the Raptors withstand Stephen Curry’s playoff career-high 47 points. Curry was 6-for-14 from 3-point range and 13 of 14 from the line in breaking his previous playoff career high of 44 set against San Antonio in the 2013 Western Conference semifinals.

He sat out the third period of the fourth game while the Blues scored twice to earn a 4-2 victory that evens the series at two games apiece.

CLEVELAND (AP) – The Cleveland Indians say starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco has been diagnosed with a blood condition after feeling lethargic for several weeks. The Indians placed him on the 10-day injured list so the right-hander can “explore the optimal treatment and recovery options.” The club said further details will be released at Carrasco and his family’s discretion.
