NBA PLAYOFFS

TORONTO (AP) -- The Toronto Raptors need to win this evening's NBA playoff game with Miami in Toronto or they will fall behind 2-0 in the best of seven series. The Heat won the opener in overtime 102-96 as Kyle Lowry of the Raptors was held to just seven points, three of which came on a halfcourt basket at the buzzer that sent the game to OT.

The Heat announced on Wednesday that big man Chris Bosh will not be back this season and will miss the rest of the playoffs. He has been out of action since the All-Star break with a blood clot in his left leg.

The series moves to Miami for Game 3 Saturday.

NHL PLAYOFFS

UNDATED (AP) -- The NHL's best road club this season actually lost a road game the other night. That defeat by the Sharks in Nashville reduced San Jose's lead over the Predators to 2-1 in their best of seven second round NHL playoff series. Tonight the clubs are back at it, once again in Nashville. The Sharks have not lost back to back road games since Dec. 18 and 20 against Ottawa and Chicago.

After splitting the first two games of their series in Dallas, the Stars and Blues played in St. Louis on Tuesday with the Blues winning 6-1. Tonight they hit the ice again in St. Louis with the Blues eyeing a 3-1 series lead. The Stars on the other hand are thinking of another split with the series heading back to Dallas for Game 5 Saturday.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The lone day game in baseball is being played in St. Louis with the Cardinals playing host to the Phillies. The Phillies have been on a roll of late with wins in seven of their last 10 games. That success has moved them four games over .500 while the Cards are at .500 with a record of 14-14 after losing six of their last 10.

In action this evening, the marquee matchup has two first place clubs facing off with Washington playing the Cubs in Chicago. On the year, the Cubs are a major league best 20-6 while the Nationals are not far behind at 19-8. The pitching matchup has Washington's Joe Ross and his 3-0 record squaring off with 1-2 Kyle Hendricks. Along with being unbeaten, Ross has a sterling 0.79 earned run average.

The Indians are looking for their second three-game sweep of a series with the Tigers tonight. Cleveland took three from the Tigers in Detroit two weeks ago and looks to do it again this time in Progressive Field.

The rubber game of a three-game series in Baltimore is being played tonight between the Orioles and Yankees. New York got back in the win column last night with a 7-0 win.

In other games tonight, the Rangers face the Jays in Toronto, Miami is home to Arizona, the Brewers are playing the Reds in Cincinnati, Chicago's White Sox are home to Boston, Seattle is playing at Houston, the Rockies are in San Francisco and the Padres are hosting the Mets. On the mound for New York is Jacob deGrom who is 3-0.
