OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State's Stephen (STEHF'-ehn) Curry is expected to be announced as the NBA MVP at a news conference today. The Warriors point guard has won the league's most coveted individual award, a person familiar with the decision told the Associated Press Sunday.
Curry is set to receive the award before the Warriors' Game 2 of the Warriors' Western Conference semifinal series against Memphis Tuesday night.
He beat out Houston's James Harden, Cleveland's LeBron James and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, among others, for MVP honors.
Curry carried the top-seeded Warriors to a franchise-record 67 wins and surpassed his own record for most 3-pointers in a season with 286.
He's the franchise's first MVP since Wilt Chamberlain in 1960, when the Warriors played in Philadelphia.
UNDATED (AP) -- LeBron James and the Cavaliers tip off their Eastern Conference semifinal series against Chicago at home tonight. But Cleveland will be severely short-handed. Gone for the rest of the playoff is power forward Kevin Love, after shoulder surgery following the series win over Boston. Also out is starting guard J.R. Smith, who's been suspended for two games for hitting the Celtics Jae Crowder in the face in the series clinching win.
By contrast the Bulls are at full strength for one of the few times this season, with guard Derrick Rose back after one of his many injury layoffs.
Cleveland won three of the four games between the two teams this season.
The Clippers may be without star guard Chris Paul for the Western Conference semifinal opener at Houston tonight. He suffered a hamstring injury in the Game 7 win over San Antonio Saturday night. But he came back from that injury to hit the game-winning shot against the Spurs with a second to go.
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have a news conference scheduled today to name a successor to fired manager Ron Roenicke (REHN'-ih-kee). He was let go after last night's victory over the Cubs, that was only the Brewers seventh win in 25 games this season.
In four-plus seasons, the 58-year-old Roenicke was 342-331.
Roenicke guided the Brewers to a franchise record 96-66 record in 2011, his first season as a major league manager. Milwaukee was 83-79 in 2012, 74-88 in 2013 and 82-80 last season.
