Three things to watch for this week

• The Spurs and Nuggets seem to be the most evenly matched of the NBA first-round opponents. The series is tied 2-2, with Game 5 set for Tuesday in Denver.

• Much of the focus of the NFL draft Thursday-Saturday will be on the first few rounds, but the Vikings have five picks on Day 3 and could really add to their depth on Saturday.

• It's a shame the Twins missed the great weekend of local weather. Maybe they'll get more of the same when they come back home Friday vs. Baltimore.
