Hopkins wins split decision over Shumenov (Yahoo Sports) - Bernard Hopkins made some more boxing history, and did it in rather easy fashion. ''I was so in my living room watching Archie Bunker,'' Hopkins said, playfully comparing himself to the main character from the 1970's series ''All in the Family.'' ''I was so relaxed, so relaxed.'' Already the oldest boxer in history to hold a world championship, Hopkins became the oldest to win a unification bout Saturday night as he captured a split 12-round decision over Beibut Shumenov of Kazakhstan. Of the 608 punches thrown by Shumenov, only 20 percent landed. Durant leads Thunder past Grizzlies 100-86 (Yahoo Sports) - Kevin Durant scored 13 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter to help the Oklahoma City Thunder defeat the Memphis Grizzlies 100-86 on Saturday night in the opening game of their first-round series. Russell Westbrook had 23 points and 10 rebounds and Serge Ibaka added 17 points and nine rebounds for the Thunder, who nearly squandered a 25-point lead but recovered from a dismal third quarter to make 10 of 16 shots in the fourth. Zach Randolph led Memphis with 21 points and 11 rebounds, but he made just seven of 21 shots and got into foul trouble in the second half. Mike Conley had 16 points and 11 assists, Mark Gasol scored 16 points and Tony Allen added 13 points for the Grizzlies. Blue Jackets edge Penguins 4-3 in double overtime (Yahoo Sports) - Matt Calvert's first career playoff goal gave the Columbus Blue Jackets a badly needed boost. Calvert banged his own rebound past Marc-Andre Fleury 1:10 into the second overtime and the Columbus Blue Jackets earned their first Stanley Cup playoff win with a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. Fleury stuffed the initial shot by Cam Atkinson but Calvert stood all alone at the left post. Game 3 is Monday in Columbus. Ethier's HR propels Dodgers over Diamondbacks (Yahoo Sports) - Dan Haren didn't let a little thing like a four-run inning discourage him. Andre Ethier hit a three-run homer and the Dodgers rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-6 on Saturday. The right-hander struck out five in his fourth start of the season, six days after his 8-6 victory over the Diamondbacks at Phoenix. ''He has a few weapons he likes to go to,'' Diamondbacks left fielder Mark Trumbo said of his former Angels teammate. Wie shoots 67, wins LPGA LOTTE Championship (Yahoo Sports) - Michelle Wie rallied from four strokes back entering the day to shoot a 5-under 67 on Saturday and win the LPGA LOTTE Championship. The 24-year-old American finished at 14-under 274 after coming into the final round trailing third-round leader Angela Stanford by four shots after Friday's play. Hanigan, Archer key Rays 16-1 win over Yankees (Yahoo Sports) - ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Ryan Hanigan homered twice and had six RBIs, and Chris Archer continued his dominance over the Yankees as the Tampa Bay Rays routed New York 16-1 on Saturday night. Hawks take 1-0 lead by rolling past Pacers 101-93 (Yahoo Sports) - Jeff Teague scored a playoff career-high 28 points and Paul Millsap added 25 as eighth-seeded Atlanta rolled past top-seeded Indiana 101-93 on Saturday night, taking a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. The Hawks ended an eight-game road losing streak in the playoffs, which dated to May 2011. Indiana, which spent the whole season working to get home-court advantage in the playoffs, wasted no time in giving it right back with a dismal third quarter. Atlanta opened the third quarter on an 8-0 run, breaking a 50-50 tie, then pulled away when Teague scored nine points in a 14-0 run that made it 74-58 with 4:08 left in the quarter. Blues beat Blackhawks 4-3 in OT, take 2-0 lead (Yahoo Sports) - Defenseman Barret Jackman scored on a drive through traffic, giving the St. Louis Blues their second straight 4-3 overtime victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday for a 2-0 series lead against the defending Stanley Cup champions. St. Louis rallied after Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook received a five-minute major and game misconduct penalty for a vicious elbow to the head on Blues captain David Backes, who had to be helped off the ice, went straight to the locker room and did not return for the extra period. Vladimir Tarasenko forced overtime with his second goal of the series, beating Corey Crawford with a wrist shot that banged off the right post and in with 6.4 seconds to go. Warriors beat Clippers 109-105 in playoff opener (Yahoo Sports) - Klay Thompson scored 22 points, David Lee added 20 and the Golden State Warriors got Blake Griffin and Chris Paul in foul trouble to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 109-105 on Saturday in their playoff opener. Stephen Curry added 14 points for the Warriors, who trailed by 11 points to start the game before rallying in the third when Griffin and Paul were on the bench together. Paul led the Clippers with 28 points, and J.J. Redick added 22 points in 30 minutes. Foul trouble plagued both teams, but losing Griffin and Paul for stretches cost the Clippers at both ends. Harper pulled for not hustling, Nats fall to Cards (Yahoo Sports) - Bryce Harper hit the ball to the mound, jogged to first base and took a right turn to the dugout before getting halfway down the basepath. That would be his final play in the Washington Nationals' 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. First-year manager Matt Williams will tolerate physical miscues, such as the error that provided St. Louis three unearned runs, but he won't take the nonchalance that the normally aggressive Harper displayed during his sixth-inning jog. That's why he came out of the game,'' Williams said.

Nadal lost to fellow Spaniard David Ferrer 7-6 (1), 6-4 in the quarterfinals of the Monte Carlo Masters on Friday, his earliest exit since 2003 at a tournament that helped build his reputation as perhaps the greatest clay-court player of all time. Nadal won eight consecutive titles here from 2005-12, before losing to Novak Djokovic in last year's final. This was his first loss on clay to Ferrer since 2004, and the 13-time Grand Slam champion said he is still trying to find his best form after a disappointing loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the Australian Open final.
