MIAMI (AP) – LeBron James scored 24 points and Dwyane Wade added
22 to lead Miami to a 92-84 win over Dallas in Game 1 of the NBA
Finals. Dirk Nowitzki (noh-VIHT’-skee) had 27 for the Mavericks but
suffered a torn tendon in the middle finger of his left,
non-shooting hand and will likely wear a splint on it the rest of
the series.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Attorneys for Lance Armstrong have demanded
an on-air apology from “60 Minutes” after the head of
Switzerland’s anti-doping laboratory denied allegations the
seven-time Tour de France winner tested positive for
performance-enhancing drugs at the 2001 Tour de Suisse. In a letter
to CBS, lawyer Elliot Peters said the May 22 segment about
Armstrong was built on a series of falsehoods, and he accused the
reputable CBS show of sloppy journalism.

VANCOUVER (AP) – Vancouver and Boston face off in Game 1 of the
Stanley Cup finals tonight with both teams trying to end a lengthy
title drought. The Canucks have never experienced the joy of
hoisting the Cup in their four decades of existence, while the
Bruins last won the Stanley Cup in 1972.

PARIS (AP) – Five-time champion Rafael Nadal reached the French
Open semifinals and improved his career record there to 43-1 by
eliminating the only man to beat him, fifth-seeded Robin Soderling,
6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (3) Wednesday.
A sixth Roland Garros title would allow Nadal to tie Bjorn Borg
for the most in history.
Nadal and Soderling have played each other in Paris three years
in a row. In 2009, Soderling defeated Nadal in the fourth round en
route to a runner-up finish. In 2010, Nadal beat Soderling in the
final.
On Wednesday, Nadal broke Soderling the first two times the
Swede served, and six total.
The top-seeded Nadal plays No. 4 Andy Murray or unseeded Juan
Ignacio Chela in Friday’s semifinals, and No. 2 Novak Djokovic
faces No. 3 Roger Federer.
