TODAY'S THOUGHT

The widow and the orphan are too significant in the kingdom of God just to be pitied. They are not to be pitied. They are to be empowered.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have two All-NBA players in the same season for the first time in 14 years. Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns were both named to the All-NBA third team. The league's all-star teams were announced today.
 
     The last Timberwolves pair on the list was Kevin Garnett (first team) and Sam Cassell (second team) in 2004. That was also the last time the team made the playoffs before returning last month to end the NBA's longest active absence.
 
     Butler was an All-NBA third team selection in 2017 with Chicago. He shot a career-high 47.4 percent from the field and finished 15th in the league with an average of 22.2 points per game.
 
     This was the first such honor for Towns. He led the NBA with 68 double-doubles this season.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have reinstated third baseman Miguel Sano from the disabled list after he missed the last 24 games with a strained left hamstring. The Twins sent outfielder Jake Cave to Triple-A Rochester today.
 
     Sano went 6 for 16 with two homers and three walks on a five-game rehab assignment at Rochester. Before he was hurt, Sano batted just .213 with five homers and 14 RBIs with 36 strikeouts in 20 games. Sano, an All-Star in 2017, has never played in more than 116 games in the majors due to injuries.
 
     The Twins start a three-game series in Seattle against the Mariners on Friday. They are still missing three regulars from their lineup: shortstop Jorge Polanco (suspension), first baseman Joe Mauer (neck strain) and catcher Jason Castro (knee surgery).
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Rockets have a chance to take their first lead in the Western Conference finals with a home-court victory over the Golden State Warriors tonight.
 
     The Rockets tied the series Tuesday with a 95-92 win in Game 4 that snapped Golden State's NBA-record 16-game home playoff winning streak. But after two blowout losses in this series, including an embarrassing 41-point rout in Game 3, the Rockets know they don't have any time to celebrate.
 
     When they take the court for Game 5, the Rockets will be wearing patches on their uniforms in honor of the 10 people killed in last week's school shooting in nearby Santa Fe.

     UNDATED (AP) - Baseballs really are getting extra lift, and it's not from the exaggerated upper cuts batters are taking. That's according to a 10-person committee of researchers hired by the commissioner's office. But the panel, which includes professors specializing in physics, mechanical engineering, statistics and mathematics, struck out trying to pinpoint the cause.
 
     Committee chairman Alan Nathan, professor emeritus of physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, says "the aerodynamic properties of the ball have changed, allowing it to carry farther."
 
     The committee's 84-page report was released Wednesday by Major League Baseball. There was no evidence of meaningful change in the bounciness of the balls, formally called coefficient of restitution, or alteration in batters' swings, such as upper-cutting.
 
     In other MLB news:
 
     - Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo has been suspended for 80 games by Major League Baseball following a positive test for a performance-enhancing substance. The commissioner's office said Thursday he tested positive for EPO, a hormone that stimulates the red blood cell production. He is the eighth player suspended this year under the major league drug-testing program. He would lose more than $3.5 million of his $7.25 million salary.
 
     - The Los Angeles Angels are pushing back Shohei Ohtani's next outing as a starting pitcher to manage the workload of the two-way rookie. Ohtani is 4-1 with a 3.35 ERA in seven starts. He had been scheduled to pitch against fellow Japanese right-hander Masahiro Tanaka at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Ohtani will be available to hit against Tanaka. The Angels haven't set a date for Ohtani's next outing.

     SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Sharks have signed pending free agent forward Evander Kane to a seven-year contract. The deal finalized today keeps the high-scoring winger off the open market and part of the Sharks long-term future.
 
     Kane, who turns 27 in August, was acquired from Buffalo at the trade deadline. Under the terms of that trade, the Sabres will get a first-round pick in 2019 instead of a second-rounder because Kane signed with San Jose. The selection is lottery-protected, so it could be moved to 2020.
 
     Kane had nine goals and five assists in 17 games with San Jose. He added four goals and one assist in nine playoff games in his first career trip to the postseason.

     PARIS (AP) - Serena Williams could face Maria Sharapova in the fourth round of the French Open on her return to Grand Slam tennis from maternity leave. The 23-time Grand Slam champion will open her campaign at the clay-court Grand Slam against 70th-ranked Kristyna Pliskova of the Czech Republic. Without a seeding, Williams was placed in the same quarter of the draw as Sharapova, who is unseeded too.
 
     Top-ranked Simona Halep will open against Alison Riske, and defending champion Jelena Ostapenko will take on Kateryna Kozlova of Ukraine.
 
     The tournament starts Sunday.
