Saturday Sports Update

Top left: The San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors open up the NBA Playoffs this afternoon in the Bay Area.  The series will be a rematch of last year's Western Conference Finals, in which the Warriors swept the Spurs.  This series will have a different vibe, though; both teams will be without key players -- Stephen Curry will miss out due to a sprained knee, while Kawhi Leonard has missed most of the season for the Spurs because of a leg muscle issue.

Bottom: Field conditions weren't the most ideal, but that didn't stop Fredonia and Dunkirk from notching convincing wins on the high school baseball diamond on Friday.  Trey Swartz (left) and the Billies opened their season by crushing Maple Grove 23-0; the game was called after 4 1/2 innings with the newly implemented mercy rule.  Meanwhile, Dunkirk won its second game in a row with a 9-1 victory at Silver Creek.  Photos by the Observer and Ron Szot
