Chiefs' Flowers and friends bowl for kids

by Matt Lincoln/CBS12

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - All NFL players are preparing to attend training camp later this month.  But Chiefs defensive back and Delray Beach native Brandon Flowers has something else on his mind this weekend.

Thursday kicked off his Charity Weekend, with a bowling event at the Delray Marketplace. Flowers was joined by fellow NFL players Jamaal Charles, D.J. Swearinger, Sean Smith, Major Wright and others.  The players bowled a few games with fans both young and old, with all the proceeds benefiting Prep & Sports Inc., which is dedicated to changing the lives of at risk youth in Palm Beach County.

The events continue Friday with a Skills Camp for kids, and Saturday with a 7-on-7 high school football tournament.

Flowers was drafted by the Chiefs in 2008 in the second round out of Virginia Tech. He has 13 career interceptions as KC's starting cornerback. He's a graduate of Atlantic Community High School in Delray.Chiefs' Flowers and friends bowl for kids

UNDATED (AP) -- After road teams went 3-1 during Day 1 of the NBA playoffs, there are four more games today.

San Antonio, considered a legitimate contender to dethrone the Miami Heat as NBA champions, opens the day with a home game against Dallas.

The two-time defending NBA champion Heat are home as they start their playoff chase against Charlotte. The Heat are not coming into the playoffs on the roll, having lost six of their last eight games of the regular season while resting at least one of their regulars during that span. But LeBron James, Dwyane (dwayn) Wade, Chris Bosh and Company will have their full contingent today.

This evening, the Chicago Bulls are home against Washington, which is making its first playoff appearance since 2008. The visiting Wizards took two of three from the Bulls in the regular season, winning both times in Chicago.

Later tonight, the Houston Rockets host Portland. All-star guard James Harden of the Rockets averaged 30.3 points a game against the Trail Blazers in four games this season.


UNDATED (AP) -- The New York Rangers are leading the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 after the first period of Game 2 in their first-round NHL playoff series at Madison Square Garden. The Broadway Blues are trying to take a 2-0 series advantage over the Flyers.

In other first-round hockey playoffs:

-- The visiting Detroit Red Wings, having shocked Boston 1-0 in the opener Friday night in Beantown, try to take a 2-0 lead when they play the Bruins today.

-- The Montreal Canadiens, who took the first two games of their series on the road against Tampa Bay, have home ice for the next two games as they attempt to sweep the Lightning out of the first round.

-- The final game of the night has San Jose hosting the L.A. Kings. The Sharks took the opener 6-3 Thursday night.


UNDATED (AP) -- Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, benched yesterday by rookie manager Matt Williams for not running out a groundball, is back in the lineup today and batting second. The Nationals are trying to gain a split in their four-game weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

In the sixth inning on Saturday, Harper hit a comebacker to the mound and was easily thrown out at first base. The two-time All-Star was replaced in left field the following inning.

In other games today:

Toronto, which is tied for the AL East lead with the Yankees, is visiting Cleveland.

The L.A. Angels, one and a-half games out of the AL West race, is at AL Central-leading Detroit.

The Seattle Mariners are at Miami, which is trying to win its third in a road.

The Milwaukee Brewers, leading the NL Central, are at Pittsburgh, which is five games back in that division. Ryan Braun's two-run homer in the ninth yesterday gave the Brewers a 4-3 victory.

The New York Yankees will try to end their two-game losing streak when they play the Rays. Tampa Bay belted five home runs in a 16-1 laugher over the Yankees yesterday.

The Kansas City Royals aim for their sixth straight victory as they host Minnesota.

The Chicago Cubs, last in the NL Central, are at Texas, which is trying for its sixth straight victory.

The Houston Astros try to end their six-game losing streak when they visit Oakland. The Athletics are an American League-best 12-5 after scoring three in the bottom of the ninth to beat Houston 4-3 yesterday.

The Philadelphia Phillies, last in the NL East, try to end their two-game slide against Colorado.

The San Francisco Giants send out winless Tim Lincecum (LINZ'-ih-kuhm) as they visit San Diego.

Arizona, last in the NL West, takes on the division-leading L.A. Dodgers.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- New York Yankees right-hander Ivan Nova has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and was placed on the 15-day disabled list today. The Yankees also reinstated first baseman Mark Teixeira (teh-SHEHR'-uh) from the 15-day disabled list and he was in the starting lineup for today's game against Tampa Bay.


HILTON HEAD, S.C. (AP) -- Luke Donald takes a two-stroke lead over John Huh in today's final round of the RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island. Donald is trying to finally win the event after four top-three finishes since 2009.

Charl Schwartzel (SHAR'-uhl SHWORTS'-uhl), Nicholas Thompson, Jim Furyk (FYOOR'-ihk) and Ben Martin started the day three shots back.


DULUTH, Ga. (AP) -- Tour rookie Miguel Angel Jimenez (AHN'-hehl hee-MEHN'-ehz) takes a one-shot lead over Bernard Langer into the final round of the three-round Champions Tour event in Duluth, Ga. He shot a 2-under-70 and is at at 9-under.


SHANGHAI (AP) -- Lewis Hamilton will start from the pole in Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix. That gives his Mercedes team the pole in every race this season.

MONACO (AP) -- Stanislas Wawrinka (vah-VINK'-ah) won the Monte Carlo Masters for the first time Sunday, rallying to beat Roger Federer 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in a rare all-Swiss final.
