THE BEST OF THE WEEKEND IN SPORTS

Magic vs. Cavaliers


Didn’t see Orlando taking Game 1 in Cleveland; LeBron James and Co. get a shot to even things up Friday in Game 2 before heading to Orlando on Sunday for Game 3.

Lakers vs. Nuggets

Game 3 takes the series to Denver for the first time on Saturday night. The Nuggets went 33-8 at home during the regular season and have yet to lose in six games at Pepsi Center during the playoffs.

NCAA lacrosse final four

The semifinal games (Syracuse-Duke, Cornell-Virginia) are on Saturday on ESPN2; ESPN will have the men’s title game Monday, a Memorial Day tradition.

Indy 500

Helio Castroneves is up front, but all eyes, as always, will be on Danica Patrick when they fire up the engines Sunday afternoon.

1. Matt Holliday, Oakland - The A’s are in last place, and the former Rockies slugger is in the last year of his deal. Billy Beane will continue to restock his system.
