June 7, 2014 


The NBA Finals resume with Game 2 .... (8 p.m., ABC-36).


The Lexington Legends open a seven-game home stand with the first of three games against the Asheville Tourists (7:05 p.m., WLXG-AM 1300). Following that series are four games with the Charleston RiverDogs leading into the All-Star break.


If you've been waiting for the chance to see the force of nature that is Yasiel Puig in person, here's your chance. Puig and the Dodgers invade Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park for the first of four games this week against the Reds (7:10 p.m., Fox sports Ohio)

Friday, Saturday

With Tiger Woods' brilliance having faded, the list of golfers who have been-there-done-that is ever growing. This week's U.S. Open at Pinhurst, N.C., includes eight previous Open champions, along with numerous winners of the Masters, British Open and U.S. Open. Despite a field this wide open, Bovada took a shot at assigning odds, making Rory McIlroy the favorite at 8-1. Next were Adam Scott (11-1), Phil Mickelson (14-1), Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth (20-1) and Justin Rose and Matt Kuchar (22-1). (9 a.m.-3 p.m. and 6-7 p.m., ESPN; 3-5 p.m. NBC Sports Network; 5-6 p.m., ESPN2)

Friday, Saturday

The Kentucky and Indiana basketball all-stars renew their summer rivalry with games on back-to-back nights. Fans in Lexington can get a look at University of Kentucky signee Trey Lyles, who will lead the Hoosiers into Transylvania's Beck Center on Friday (girls, 5 p.m., followed by boys). The teams meet again Saturday (girls, 5 p.m., followed by boys) in Indianapolis at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Kentucky boys have lost 11 consecutive games to Indiana and trail the series 89-42. Lafayette's Jackson Davis, Henry Clay's Jordan Green and Mr. Basketball Quentin Snider of Ballard lead an athletic Kentucky lineup. The Kentucky girls, who trail their series with Indiana 41-35, are led by Miss Basketball Ivy Brown of LaRue County. She is joined by two players from the 11th Region in Paul Laurence Dunbar's Brooke Todd and Lafayette's Sarah Cooley.
