End 3Q: #Lakers 73, #Twolves 66. Chase Budinger had nine points in the third quarter, 17 in game, including a dunk near the end of quarter.

Darren Wolfson

Exactly one month ago tonight I was at Target Center for #Twolves-Wizards and the vibe was great. One month later and, umm, umm, umm...

Andy Greder

Note: In spare time, #Twolves center Gorgui Dieng has worked to graduate from Louisville. He will get diploma in May. twincities.com/timberwolves/c…

Andy Greder

That's the 14th #Twolves turnover and they've turned into 10 #Lakers points.

Andy Greder

Half: #Lakers 49, #Twolves 43. Andrew Wiggins leads all scorers with 10 points, Zach LaVine with 9, Chase Budinger adds 8.

Darren Wolfson

So much for the Knicks getting one win closer to the #Twolves in wins tonight. They're down 36 after three vs. LAC.

Andy Greder

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders is imploring his team to "pass the ball!" They have five assists on 13 buckets, trail 38-35 with 4:42 in half.

Andy Greder

Note: Kevin Garnett and Ricky Rubio are expected to play again in the season's final stretch. #Twolves twincities.com/timberwolves/c…

Andy Greder

End 1Q: #Lakers 24, #Twolves 15. Los Angeles uses 8-0 run to end period. Andrew Wiggins with six points; Zach LaVine added five.

KMartin listed as available to play today along with Hamilton, but if he does it'll probably be to shoot free throw or something if needed

Andy Greder

#Twolves Kevin Garnett, Ricky Rubio could still play this year, coach Flip Saunders said. Saunders said gaits are not where they should be.

Andy Greder

#Twolves center Justin Hamilton is available tonight, while guard Kevin Martin is, um, possible, coach Flip Saunders said.

Jerry Zgoda

Justin Hamilton was cleared during visit to Rochester on Monday, will play tonight vs Lakers

Jerry Zgoda

My guy @BloodStrib is covering tonight's game. He'll have you covered for updates and insight, but I'll chime in some too

Darren Wolfson

#MNTwins well-represented in Raleigh for MLB's international prospect series. Lots of scouts still working the Florida/Arizona circuit too.

Jon Krawczynski

Happy for all the soccer fans in Minnesota today. Anything that brings more energy and atmosphere downtown is all right by me

Andy Greder

Media often asked of coach Manny Lagos' future with @MNUnitedFC in @MLS. Here's Nov. story about that never in doubt: twincities.com/sports/ci_2689…

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and @Chad Ford's opinion in his chat today is Mirotic, not Wiggins for ROY. #Twolves

Darren Wolfson

Happy to see @EricPMusselman land at Nevada. Good year as an ass't at LSU. Was next to interview with the #Gophers if Pitino fell through.

Would Adrian be the kind of malcontent Percy was if he doesn't get his way? If Vikings decide to keep him, clearly they don't think so

Jon Krawczynski

Seeing comments from Zimmer today it sure looks like Vikings are digging in. This is going to be fascinating to watch play out

At Target Field for the #MLS news conference. Here's the proposed location for @MNUnitedFC's "Soccer Park": http://t.co/1SzrA2IeFM

Darren Wolfson

Terence Newman is signing a 1-year deal with the #Vikings, per source. They made the offer last week. He finally accepted.

Darren Wolfson

Sixers didn't even get a shot off. I'd say unreal, but it's not. They remain just one win up on the #Twolves for 2nd-best Lottery odds.

Darren Wolfson

Never been so mesmerized by two non-MN low-level teams like I am right now w/ Philly and Sac. Philly down 1, 8 sec. left, and have the ball.

Andy Greder

Matthews signing probably signals no Spikes. #Vikings interest never has risen above lukewarm. No shock, hear it's a $$ thing.

Adam Weber on returning as #Gophers football GA: “It just makes sense. To be back here, to be back home, to be at this school, it’s great.”

Darren Wolfson

Welcome back to Twitter, @MNCoachPitino. #Gophers spokesperson says it really is him.

Zach LaVine

My bro @flavorfull25 transfer is complete best of luck to my guy where ever he go! Been my right hand… instagram.com/p/0oUZYREDCQ/

Darren Wolfson

Correct. On Newman. #vikings RT @Sidhu6_: @Darren Wolfson What about Zimmer? @clarencehilljr said he met with Dogra too.

Darren Wolfson

Nah. Hear Rob B. and Dogra actually get along fine. Mutual respect. #vikings RT @JohnEPalm: @Darren Wolfson I need more. Was there blood?

Darren Wolfson

Sounds like Rob Brzezinski met with Ben Dogra last night in Phoenix. He has Terence Newman. Doesn't sound like Peterson came up. #vikings

Darren Wolfson

As hinted at: the #Vikings announce that they've signed LB Casey Matthews.

Darren Wolfson

Hear the LB Casey Matthews #Vikings visit went well. Respectable numbers in 11 starts in Philly last year. Stay tuned on signing news.

Andy Greder

#Gophers football commit Thomas Barber of Armstrong looks forward to playing with Eden Prairie's Carter Coughlin in U linebacker corps.

Andy Greder

#Gophers football verbal commit Thomas Barber, who weighs 225, said he most likely will play inside linebacker at the U.

Andy Greder

#Gophers football verbal commit Thomas Barber said his brothers and father didn't influence decision to pick U, but were happy he did.

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves list KMartin, Hamilton as questionable, KG, Ricky & Neal doubtful & Bennett, Hummel, Shabazz and Pek out for Lakers tomorrow

Darren Wolfson

PF Bojan Dubljevic, #Twolves property, will be in Valencia the next two years for sure. No buyout potential. Signed extension recently.

Darren Wolfson

Former #Gophers TE Maxx Williams has a visit lined up with the #Vikings, per source. Surely others as well. Should be 1st TE drafted.

Andy Greder

The #Jazz TV comments on the #Twolves. MT @ZacharyBD: Craig Bolerjack & Matt Harping on "tanking" from last night. http://t.co/Eicd263onT

Darren Wolfson

Had a #MNTwins official say the OF Shane Robinson opt-out date is March 30 (next Monday), not Apr. 2. Reliever Blaine Boyer also is Mar. 30.

Darren Wolfson

By the way, Wiggins hasn't officially committed to Canada for the Pan Am Games. But checking and I expect him to. #twolves

Darren Wolfson

Lots of concern in my timeline about Wiggins' many minutes. I'm not there yet. Might be this summer when he's playing for Canada. #twolves

Jon Krawczynski

KG is gonna throw out the 1st pitch for Twins home opener. Bet I know who will catch it

Final game story from last night: Angry Flip Saunders after beating Jazz: 'We're not tanking games' | Star Tribune startribune.com/sports/wolves/…

Darren Wolfson

Thought the #MNTwins would push hard to eat up a free agency year or two with Dozier. But told no. Many scenarios were discussed.

Darren Wolfson

No surprise to see the Brian Dozier news. Seemed inevitable an extension would happen. 4-year, $20M extension. #mntwins

Jon Krawczynski

You certainly can ? the minutes Wiggins is playing and about lack of development on D from Dieng. Just don't think they're tanking

Jon Krawczynski

But as I've said in past, think it's important for this young group to win some games at least. To get some trust in each other.

Jon Krawczynski

You can make the argument Wolves should be tanking at this point. But they're not.

Jon Krawczynski

Glen Taylor was at forefront of plans to try to further discourage tanking in preseason. Wiggins plays 48 tonight. Wolves aren't tanking

Jerry Zgoda

Can anybody who watched Jazz TV feed on League Pass paraphrase what broadcasters said early in game about Wolves tanking season?

Jon Krawczynski

How many "aights" is Wittman gonna give after talking about this 3rd qtr?

Jerry Zgoda

It's a final Wolves 106, Jazz 104 in OT

Darren Wolfson

I know no Hayward... Utah had a 12-4 record since the All-Star break, top-2 in the NBA. #Twolves play 7 guys on a back-to-back and win. Wow!

Jon Krawczynski

10 seconds to go in OT and Sean Kilpatrick in the game for Wolves. That tells you how it's going. Sticks both FTs though

Jerry Zgoda

Gorgui gets 5th foul, Wolves lead 102-98 w/ 2:24 left in OT

Jon Krawczynski

The Chase Budinger Renaissance continues

Darren Wolfson

A Flip team has 12 made three-pointers. I repeat a Flip team has made 12 threes. #twolves

Jerry Zgoda

LaVine's two 3s there near end of regulation came, btw, after he forced a shot and committed a foul when there was no reason to do so

Jerry Zgoda

I think that was a smile ol' Flip flashed to the bench just now here in OT

Jon Krawczynski

Have to keep LaVine in an attack mode position to get the best out of him. That's where he belongs

Jerry Zgoda

LaVine's 2 clutch 3s in final 25 seconds sends Wolves' Super Eight into OT at Utah tied at 96.

Darren Wolfson

Ridiculous 13 sec. for LaVine. Horrible shot followed by a really bad foul. Then makes two three-ptrs, one three feet behind line. #twolves

Darren Wolfson

I hope @Minnesota Timberwolves has something clever for @Philadelphia 76ers after this Wiggins game tonight. He's been solid. #twolves

Jerry Zgoda

Kilpatrick is raining 3s, has 3 this qtr alone, 11 points and Wolves have taken a 79-74 lead w/ 7:06 left

Jerry Zgoda

Favors might have gotten away w/ pushoff just there. OH ED MALLOY!!! @WolvesRadio

Jerry Zgoda

Sean Kilpatrick has his first NBA points -- 5 of 'em -- here in 4th & his 3 puts Wolves ahead 73-72 w/ 8:39 left in Utah

Jerry Zgoda

Rodney Hood is done for night for Jazz b/c of "gastrointestinal distress"

Jerry Zgoda

Jazz 63, Wolves 60 after 3 quarters in Utah

Jon Krawczynski

Payne with a little stepback. ... OK.

Jerry Zgoda

Just my 2 cents: Jazz should play a snippet of the Clash every time Gobert scores or blocks a shot

Darren Wolfson

(Con.) Unfair to leave Hood out (ran out of characters), who Wolves liked last June. Also underrated: Dennis Lindsey is really, really good.

Jerry Zgoda

At the half: Jazz 48, Wolves 42

Jerry Zgoda

KIlpatrick has played 11 minutes so far, Wolves trail 35-33 midway thru 2nd qtr

Jerry Zgoda

Jazz 22, Wolves 20 after a quarter here in Salt Lake City

Jerry Zgoda

Lorenzo Brown starting in Martin's SG spot because Martin's hamstring is bothering him. He'll be in uniform and still could play some

Jerry Zgoda

Before you go looking...no local TV for tonight's game at Utah

Darren Wolfson

Congrats to @CoryHepola on his KARE morning show anchoring gig. Wish I could call him a co-worker.

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said Hamilton went to Rochester today to see a specialist in hopes that he'll be cleared to play after getting kneed in head a week ago
