NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Knicks have evened their Eastern Conference semifinal series at a game apiece by dominating the last 15 minutes of a 105-79 win over the visiting Indiana Pacers. Carmelo Anthony scored half of his 32 points during a 30-2 spurt that put the Knicks ahead by 26. The Pacers actually led by a basket with three minutes left in the third quarter before New York erupted.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Mike Conley scored 26 points and Marc Gasol added 24 as the Memphis Grizzlies downed Oklahoma City 99-93 to knot the Western Conference semifinal series at a game apiece. Conley hit a 3-pointer from the left wing with 1:58 left to put the Grizzlies ahead to stay then added an 18-foot jumper to stretch the lead to 94-90. He finished one assist short of a triple-double and shot 11-for-22 from the floor.

UNDATED (AP) — The New York Islanders have evened their Stanley Cup first-round series at two games apiece while Ottawa took a three-games-to-one lead over Montreal. John Tavares provided the game-winner with 9:49 remaining while the Isles were netting the last three goals in a 6-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Kyle Turris (TOOR'-ihs) scored at 2:32 of overtime to give the Senators a 3-2 win against Montreal.

UNDATED (AP) — Patrick Marleau (MAHR'-loh) scored a power-play goal at 13:18 of overtime to give the San Jose Sharks a 4-3 victory and a four-game sweep of the Vancouver Canucks. Joe Pavelski's second goal of the night tied the game with 4:27 left in regulation after Alexandre Burrows and Alex Edler scored 1:51 apart to put the Canucks ahead midway through the third period. Also in the West, Patrick Sharp scored twice and Corey Crawford stopped 25 shots as Chicago blanked Minnesota 3-0 to take a three-games-to-one series lead.
