Tampa will play the winner between the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals. Those two teams meet in Game 7 of their series Wednesday night.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers followed at number two and selected Calgary offensive lineman Sukh Chungh. The Toronto Argonauts continued the run on offensive linemen, taking Calgary centre Sean McEwen third.

James Harden and the Houston Rockets showed they still have some life in them. Harden had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists to lead Houston past the Los Angeles Clippers 124-103. A loss would've meant the end of the Rockets' playoffs as L-A leads the series 3-2. Dwight Howard added 20 points and 15 rebounds for Houston.

Also, LeBron James scored 38 points, Kyrie Irving added 25 and the Cleveland Cavaliers held on for a 106-101 victory over the Chicago Bulls. Cleveland now leads the Eastern Conference semifinal 3-2. Jimmy Butler scored 29 and Mike Dunleavy added 19 for Chicago.
