Leonard scored a career-high 32 points to carry the Spurs to a 100-73 win over the Los Angeles Clippers and a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference playoff series. In the other playoff contests Friday, the Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards also won to take commanding 3-0 series leads. Leonard not only anchored the Spurs' defense but he wasted no time putting his stamp on the game offensively.

Canadian Brooke Henderson upstaged fellow teenager and birthday girl Lydia Ko by firing a tournament record seven-under 65 on Friday to take a two-shot lead at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic. The 17-year-old Henderson, a long hitter who still needs sponsor exemptions to enter tournaments, reeled off six birdies and an eagle to vault to the top of the leaderboard at nine-under. Despite playing only her 10th tournament, Henderson said she was prepared for the weekend. As you’ve seen with Lydia Ko and Lexi Thompson and even Jessica Korda, there are a lot of great names that have been able to do it.

(AP Photo/Michelle Rindels)By Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - An investigation into the death of a black man in Baltimore police custody is still trying to figure out what happened, the police commissioner said on Friday as the city braced for a major protest over the incident. Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said police would release surveillance camera photos involving the death of Freddie Gray, 25, who died on Sunday a week after being arrested. More than 1,000 protesters are expected in Baltimore for a march from the site of his arrest to City Hall on Saturday, police said. Batts said Gray was put in a police van for transport to a police station and he was not buckled in at any time, as regulations required.

Further details were not immediately provided by the school. (Reporting by Curtis Skinner in San Francisco; Editing by Michael Perry)

Undated still image of American hostage Warren WeinsteinBy Warren Strobel and Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. drone strike that accidentally killed two hostages in Pakistan exposes intelligence shortfalls that former and current U.S. officials say appear to be growing more frequent as militants expand their safe havens and as Washington gathers less on-the-ground human intelligence. Obtaining timely intelligence on hostages has always been difficult, especially in volatile regions where the United States has limited access and where militants have well-established operations.
