    PGA: AT&T Byron Nelson Championship-Second Round(Reuters) - Torrential overnight rain in Irving, Texas, forced tournament officials to take the unusual step of transforming a par-four hole into a par-three for the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson on Friday. Due to unplayable conditions on the water-logged 14th fairway at the TPC Four Seasons Resort Las Colinas after 4-1/2 inches of rainfall overnight, the 406-yard hole was shortened to a par-three measuring 104 yards. "The 14th fairway is unplayable where we drive the ball," Slugger White, the PGA Tour's vice president of rules and competitions, told reporters.

    Dwight Howard #12 of the Houston Rockets dunks against the Los Angeles Clippers in the second quarter during Game Seven of the Western Conference Semifinals at the Toyota Center for the 2015 NBA Playoffs on May 17, 2015 in Houston, TexasHouston Rockets center Dwight Howard was suspended for one game by the NBA on Friday for accumulated flagrant fouls in the playoffs, but he won't serve the ban until next season. A review by the league office upgraded a foul he committed on Golden State guard Andre Iguodala in a loss Wednesday from a common foul to a flagrant foul, the move involving unnecessary contact with his forearm to the neck of his rival with 3:35 to play in the fourth quarter of a 104-90 defeat that ousted the Rockets from the NBA playoffs. The victory gave the Warriors a four games to one triumph in the best-of-seven Western Conference final and sent Golden State into the NBA Finals against Cleveland that open Thursday at Oakland, California.
