Lavine starts after halftime by missing FT from a Westbrook `T' that end first half. That keeps it at OKC 70, Wolves 49

Halftime read: #Twolves asst coach Ryan Saunders uses tech, ball-handling and hard work to negate calls of nepotism. twincities.com/Sports/Timberw…

Andy Greder

Half: #Thunder 70, #Twolves 49. Not most points allowed in half for Minnesota. That was 80 Pelicans pegged on them, and it didn't end well.

Darren Wolfson

Getting to know more about Kristaps Porzingis - #Twolves have scouted plenty. Had a non-MN scout say today he'd surely take him over Okafor.

Jerry Zgoda

Portland scored 36 in Wednesday's first half. OKC has 50 and 8:46 remains before halftime still

Andy Greder

Coming off a back-to-back, Thunder's 39 points in first quarter are a season high for a quarter.

Andy Greder

End 1Q: #Thunder 39, #Twolves 21. Minnesota run over by a freight train. Thunder shoot 59 percent to Wolves' 36 percent. OKC 16-7 on boards.

Jerry Zgoda

Here they come...Brewer steal and slam with 0.7 seconds left in 1st gets Wolves within 39-21 after a quarter here at Target Center

Jerry Zgoda

That's 20-7 Thunder now and another Wolves timeout. There's 6:18 left in the 1st qtr

Jerry Zgoda

Make that 14-4 Thunder

Jerry Zgoda

Thunder off to 10-4 lead, Flip takes a 20

Gorgui makes a statement in game's opening possession: Swats away not one, but two shots at the rim

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders on rookie Zach LaVine: "Our biggest thing is to keep him out of the gym. ... He wants it so bad sometimes."

Jerry Zgoda

FYI: Mo out again, Shabazz available to play

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said pregame that Ricky is taking next step in rehab by getting on anti-gravity treadmill that allows exercise w/out weight on legs

Andy Greder

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders asked guard Mo Williams about his back spasms. "Yeah, it's improving," Mo relayed to coach. But "really, no."

Darren Wolfson

Busy recruiting weekend for #Gophers hoops. They'll have a presence in DC, Pennsylvania, and Texas at various holiday tourneys.

Kobe 31 pts shy of passing Jordan for 3rd on all-time scoring list. If he does it Sunday at Target Center, #Twolves will recognize w/ video.

Was at #Twolves shootaround. @Shabazz Muhammad spoke about getting acupuncture treatment to help his ankle. "It hurts a lot," he said.

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves list Mo Williams (back spasms) as doubtful and Shabazz Muhammad (ankle) as probable for tomorrow's game vs. OKC

Andy Greder

As of noon today, @GopherFootball fans have purchased 5,500 tickets for the Citrus Bowl against Missouri on New Year's Day in Orlando.

Jon Krawczynski

Flip said Mo Williams unlikely to play tomorrow against Thunder. Shabazz still working through a sore ankle but expected to go

Darren Wolfson

Santana contractual details: 4/54 can become 5/68 with the vesting option. $1M buyout makes the guarantee $55M. #MNTwins

Darren Wolfson

Yet, the fool follows me >>> RT @SotaSportsGuy2 @Darren Wolfson When's the last time you reported something that happened? Make stuff up?

Darren Wolfson

Glad to be the 10th or so person to confirm it is done: 4/$54M with Ervin to the #MNTwins. 4/50 was never getting him here.

Darren Wolfson

Told #MNTwins tried to get a meeting on Masterson yesterday, but it was too late. They never made him an offer.

Darren Wolfson

At #Gophers fball practice. A. Johnson went, & is good to go for bowl game. Drew W. didn't practice today, but is expected to play in game.

Zach LaVine

Switch to @Sprint and they’ll #CutYourBill in half. What are you gonna do with that extra $? sprint.co/1zFzD2x

Good point by @mattkrebsbach21: Lot of similarities btwn Wiggins, Bridgewater in terms of demeanor. 2 high-profile guys who shun attention

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine had 5 turnovers, but overall a good game. 10 pts (4-9), 5 assists, 4 boards and pestered Lillard into 9-for-24.

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves switched on pick-and-rolls and doubled Aldridge all night. Worked like a charm with Blazers having an off shooting night

Darren Wolfson

Hear one name the #MNTwins have studied thoroughly heading into tomorrow's Rule 5 Draft is JR Graham, pitcher Braves organization.

Jon Krawczynski

Aldridge: "Their whole thing was take me out tonight, and they did."

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins: “We made plays together. It wasn’t just me. W/o them executing the plays, helping me get open, I wouldn’t have found my shots.”

Andy Greder

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders on Andrew Wiggins: "For the first time tonight I saw emotion when he hit a shot. He came back & he jumped up."

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves have started switching everything on defense. They are responding well to change. Young's versatility helps that.

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders on the 90-82 win over Portland: "The baby Wolves grew up a little bit tonight at times."

Jerry Zgoda

It's a final: Wolves 90, Blazers 82.

Andy Greder

Upset final: #Twolves 90, #Blazers 82. Minnesota's first win against a team with a winning record this season. Andrew Wiggins double-double.

Darren Wolfson

Nets gave up two 2nd rounders + agreed to a swap of a 3rd to dump AK/Teague w/ Philly. Would be similar if #Twolves wanted to dump someone.

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves dominating on the glass 53-38. Lead 84-78 with 58 seconds to go.

Darren Wolfson

Nice to see Wiggins playing well with his guy, @PureSweat, in the house. #twolves

Andy Greder

#Twolves Andrew Wiggins has scored 20-plus points in consecutive games for the first time in his career.

Jerry Zgoda

Back to back 3s from L.A. and Wes Matthews and Blazers quickly are within range, trailing 76-70 with 5:52 left

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins: 14 pts, 6 rebs, 5 assists, 3 steals. Brewer: 11 points, 5 rebs, 5 assists, 5 steals.

Andy Greder

End 3Q: #Twolves 66, #Blazers 51. Minnesota led by 20. Key play at end: Andrew Wiggins defense on break led to Corey Brewer three-pointer.

Jerry Zgoda

Blazers turnover on 3-on-1 and Brewer's rushed 3 with nine-tenth of second left sends Wolves into 4th quarter with 66-51 lead. Big swing...

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins just thwarted a 4-on-1 by himself, fed Brewer for 3 to end 3rd quarter. Brew rode the horse back down court. 66-51 Wolves.

Jon Krawczynski

Here comes Dame. 11-1 Blazers run to cut the deficit to 10 late in third.

Andy Greder

Corey Brewer joins five other #Twolves players in team history with 5-plus steals in consecutive games.

Jerry Zgoda

Blazers have outscored Wolves 6-0 on threes...and trail by 18
