     NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

     HOUSTON (AP) - In the NBA Western Conference finals last season, the Houston Rockets had home-court advantage and took a 3-2 lead over the Golden State Warriors before Houston star Chris Paul went down with a hamstring injury that kept him out for the rest of the series.

     As these teams prepare for Game 6 of the conference semifinals tonight, the Warriors find themselves in almost the same situation Houston was in last year.

     The Warriors are just a win away from advancing to the conference finals for the fifth straight time, but will have to do it without NBA-playoffs leading scorer Kevin Durant, who will miss the rest of the series with a strained right calf.

     The two-time defending champions took advantage of Paul's injury in 2018 to win two straight after falling behind 3-2 and eliminated the Rockets on their home court to advance.

     The Rockets don't want to see Golden State celebrate a series victory on their home court again and are determined to bounce back after Wednesday night's loss to avoid being eliminated by the Warriors for the fourth time in five seasons.

     The Western Conference semifinal series between Portland and Denver will be decided in a Game 7 on Sunday. The Trail Blazers avoided elimination Thursday night with a 119-108 victory at home. Now the Nuggets head home with a chance to make it to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2009.

    NBA NEWS-BUCKS-GASOL

     MILWAUKEE (AP) - Bucks center Pau Gasol will miss the rest of the NBA playoffs after surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot. The Bucks said today that the surgery done a day earlier was successful and Gasol is expected to make a full recovery.
 
     The 38-year-old Spaniard was signed by the Bucks on March 3 after he reached a buyout agreement with the San Antonio Spurs. The two-time NBA champion and six-time All-Star averaged 4.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 12.2 minutes in 27 games for the Spurs this season, his 18th in the NBA. He averaged 10.1 minutes in three games for the Bucks, all during the regular season.
 
     Gasol is one of four players with over 20,000 points, 11,000 rebounds, 3,500 assists and 1,500 blocks in his career, along with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett. The 7-footer helped the Lakers win titles in 2009 and 2010.

     NCAA-RULES PROPOSALS

     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA men's basketball rules committee is proposing moving the 3-point line to the international distance and changing the shot-clock resets reset following offensive rebounds. Both rules could take effect next season in Division I. College basketball's other two divisions would wait until 2020-21 to move the 3-point line because of the cost. The Playing Rules Oversight Panel will vote on the recommendations June 5. If approved, the shot clock would reset to 20 seconds, rather than 30 seconds, following an offensive rebound to improve the pace of the game.
