NBA PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Deron (DEHR'-ihn) Williams rebounded from two dismal games with 35 points, and the Brooklyn Nets pulled out a 120-115 overtime victory over the Atlanta Hawks. Brook Lopez had 26 points and 10 rebounds for the Nets. That ties the series at two games apiece.

The Nets were just 38-44 in the regular season. They have won the second straight in the series and moved two victories from becoming the sixth No. 8 seed to beat a No. 1 -- only the fourth since the first round became best-of-seven.

In other NBA playoffs:

-- Milwaukee cut Chicago's series lead to 3-2 by beating the Bulls 94-88 at United Center. Michael Carter-Williams had 22 points, eight rebounds and nine assists. The series now moves back to Milwaukee where the Bucks could tie it with a victory Thursday night.

NBA-SUSPENSIONS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The NBA has suspended Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith two games without pay and Celtics center Kelly Olynyk (OHL'-nihk) one game for their roles in separate incidents during a playoff game.

Smith will miss Games 1 and 2 of the Cavs' next series, when the club will also be without Kevin Love, who dislocated his shoulder earlier in the game.

Olynyk hurt Cavs forward Love, grabbing and pulling his arm. The league said Olynyk will serve his suspension in the first game of the 2015-16 regular season for which he is eligible and able to play.

NBA-CAVALIERS-LOVE

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will miss at least the team's next playoff series with a dislocated left shoulder.

Love got hurt in the first quarter of Sunday's series-clinching win over Boston. He got his left arm locked with Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk while chasing a loose ball. Olynyk yanked down on Love's arm and his shoulder popped out of its socket joint.

The Cavs say Love is seeking additional medical opinions.

In his first postseason as a pro, Love is averaging 14.3 points and seven rebounds. Love made six 3-pointers in Cleveland's Game 3 win.

NHL PLAYOFFS-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP)-- It will be the Washington Capitals against the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Evgeny Kuznetsov (KOOZ'-neht-sawf) made sure of that by scoring a tiebreaking goal with 7:18 left to give the Capitals a tense 2-1 victory in Game 7 against the New York Islanders. Braden Holtby needed to make just 10 saves between the pipes for the Caps.

The Islanders' loss ends their playing days at Nassau Coliseum, which opened in 1972. The team is moving to Brooklyn next season.

---- In the other playoff series of the night, there will be a Game 7 Wednesday night to decide the Tampa Bay-Detroit series. The Lightning beat the Red Wings 5-2 to even that series at three games apiece. Tyler Johnson scored two goals for the Lightning, who will be at home for Game 7 Wednesday.

NHL-RANGERS-ZUCCARELLO

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello is out indefinitely with what the team calls an upper body injury.

New York is optimistic it will get defenseman Kevin Klein (broken left forearm) back for the next round. He has been out since March 11.

NHL-PREDATORS-WEBER

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Predators captain Shea (SHAY) Weber is recovering from surgery to repair a dislocated right kneecap, an injury that will take up to six weeks for a full recovery. The defenseman was injured on what he called a harmless hit against the end boards during the Nashville's first-round Western Conference playoff loss to Chicago.

Weber's 26 minutes, 22 seconds of ice time per game ranked fifth in the NHL, a spot behind his defensive partner Roman Josi.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Daniel Murphy hit a three-run homer with one out in the ninth inning, and the New York Mets snapped the Miami Marlins' five-game winning streak, 3-1.

The Marlins had taken the lead in the eighth with three consecutive two-out singles, breaking up Dillon Gee's shutout bid.

The Mets have the best record in baseball -- 15-5. They are 5-0 against Miami.

In other baseball:

---- The Atlanta Braves handed the Washington Nationals their sixth straight loss, 8-4. Kelly Johnson hit a two-run homer. The Nationals, preseason favorites to win the World Series, made four errors and dropped into the basement of the NL East with a 7-13 record. They are eight games back of the Mets.

---- Pitcher Jason Marquis (marhr-KEE') ended Cincinnati's long streak of clutch-hitting futility with a run-scoring single, and slumping Jay Bruce homered and drove in three runs in the Cincinnati Reds' 9-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.

-- The Chicago Cubs blanked Pittsburgh 4-0.

---- Alex Gordon, Mike Moustakas and the Kansas City Royals kept AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber winless this season, beating the Cleveland Indians 6-2. Kluber is 0-3.

---- Mookie Betts hit a game-ending RBI single to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 6-5 victory over Toronto. Pablo Sandoval homered for the second straight day for Boston, hitting a solo shot before leaving the game with a sore neck.

---- Brian McCann hit a tiebreaking home run and Adam Warren pitched effectively into the sixth inning as the New York Yankees ended the Tampa Bay Rays' five-game winning streak, 4-1.
