The Minnesota Timberwolves were blown out in their Game One playoff match-up against the Denver Nuggets. The Wolves trailed by as many as 32 points during a 109-80 loss at Ball Arena. Minnesota was outscored by 18 points in the third quarter and managed just 36 points after halftime. Anthony Edwards had 18 points to lead the Wolves, and Karl-Anthony Towns had another disappointing playoff performance with just 11 points. The Wolves trail the Nuggets one-game-to-none in the best-of-seven series. Game Two is in Denver on Wednesday.


The Minnesota Wild begin their first round playoff series against the Dallas Stars in Game One at American Airlines Center tonight. The Wild finished the regular season as the third-place team in the Central Division with 103 points and a 46-25-and-11 record, while Dallas finished five points better in second-place. Minnesota went 2-2-and-0 against the Stars during the regular season, and the Wild are looking for their first postseason series win since 2015. Tonight's game begins at 8:30 PM.


The Minnesota Twins managed just two hits during a 2-0 loss to the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Donovan Solano and Michael A. Taylor were the only two players to record a base hit. Pablo Lopez pitched well but was tagged with his first loss after giving up two runs in six innings. The Twins remain in first place in teh AL Central at 10-and-6. They are off today and visit the Red Sox tomorrow night.


The Bucks suffered a major injury to their star player in a 130-117 opening round playoff loss to the Heat in Milwaukee. Giannis Antetokounmpo was fouled late in the first quarter and landed awkwardly on his back. He stayed in the game for a brief time, but was later ruled out with a lower back contusion. The All-Star forward had six points in 11 minutes before leaving the game. Khris Middleton led the team with 33 points while Jrue Holiday tallied a double-double on 16 points and assists. Bobby Portis netted 21 off the bench in the loss, which puts the Deer down 1-0 in the best-of-seven series. Game Two tips off in Milwaukee Wednesday night.


Meanwhile, the Bucks have new co-owners. Jimmy and Dee Haslam were approved by the NBA board of governors to purchase Marc Lasry's stake in the franchise. ESPN reports the Cleveland Browns owners reached an agreement to purchase about 25-percent of the Bucks for three-point-five-billion dollars back in February. The Haslams join Wes Edens and Jamie Dinan as co-owners of the team. Jimmy and Dee Haslam announced Edens will serve as the governor of the Bucks over the next five years.


The Brewers shutout the Padres 1-0 in their series finale from San Diego. Wade Miley allowed just four hits while striking out eight batters over seven scoreless innings. Brian Anderson drove in the lone run on a sacrifice fly while Devin Williams slammed the door on San Diego to earn his second save of the season. Milwaukee took three-of-four in the series and improved to 11-and-5. The team is still first in the NL Central. The Brewers open a three-game series against the Mariners in Seattle tonight. Corbin Burnes gets the start opposite Chris Flexen.
