The Timberwolves were embarrassed in the final quarter of their 113-112 loss to the San Antonio Spurs at Frost Bank Center on Saturday. The Wolves were outscored 33-22 in the fourth, but they still had a chance to win when Karl-Anthony Towns missed a step-back three at the buzzer. Anthony Edwards had 32 points and 12 assists in the losing effort, while Towns and Rudy Gobert each had 19. Minnesota is tied for first place in the Western Conference at 32-and-14. The Timberwolves visit the Thunder tonight.


The Wild gave up a pair of goals in the final period of their 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks at the Xcel Energy Center on Saturday. Kirill Kaprizov and Jon Merrill both scored a goal in the first period to give Minnesota a 2-1 lead, but Ryan Strome and Troy Terry both lit the lamp in the third to give Anaheim the victory. The Wild are in seventh place in the Central Division with 47 points and a 21-23-and-5 record. Minnesota returns to action on February 7th against the Blackhawks.


The Twins might be getting their best defender back in the field this season. Byron Buxton announced at TwinsFest on Saturday that he will return to center field in 2024. Buxton spent all of 2023 as Minnesota's designated hitter as he dealt with an injured knee. He won a Gold Glove in center field during the 2017 season. Last year as a DH, he hit .207 with 17 home runs and 42 RBI. In other team news, former general manager Terry Ryan and bullpen coach Rick Stelmaszek were elected to the Twins Hall of Fame over the weekend.


The Packers have lost one of their coaches to the college ranks. ESPN reports Iowa will hire Tim Lester as their offensive coordinator. The 46-year-old spent last season as an analyst with Green Bay and was formerly Western Michigan's head coach. Meanwhile, the Packers are still looking for a new defensive coordinator after Joe Barry was fired last week.


The Bucks face a tough test tonight. The team tips off against the defending champion Nuggets in Denver. Milwaukee is coming off a big win over the Pelicans where Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for a double-double. Damian Lillard chipped in with 26 points and nine assists as the Bucks remain first in the Central Division at 32-and-14.


The stage has been set for Super Bowl 58. The Kansas City Chiefs will battle the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas on February 11th. KC advanced to the big game following a 17-10 win over the Ravens in the AFC Championship game from M&T Bank Stadium. Travis Kelce set the all-time record for postseason receptions after catching 11 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown. It's the fourth time in five seasons the Chiefs have advanced to the Super Bowl after winning the big game last year. Meanwhile, the Niners stormed back from the largest halftime deficit in conference championship game history to beat the Detroit Lions 34-31 in the NFC title game from Santa Clara. Christian McCaffrey combined for 132 scrimmage yards and a pair of touchdowns as San Fran came back from trailing 17 points and advanced to its eighth Super Bowl in franchise history.
