The Timberwolves rallied back from a 21-point deficit but still lost to the Denver Nuggets 122-113 in Game Two of the first round at Ball Arena. Minnesota outscored Denver 40-23 in the third quarter, but the Nuggets took control in the final frame. Anthony Edwards scored 41 points in a dominant performance, but Karl-Anthony Towns went just three-for-12 from the field to finish with ten points. The Wolves trail two-games-to-none in the best-of-seven series. Game Three is tomorrow in Minneapolis.


Marc-Andre Fleury was lit up during Minnesota's 7-3 loss to the Dallas Stars in Game Two of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in Dallas. Fleury and the Wild surrendered four goals in the second period and weren't able to recover. The Wild goaltender made just 24 saves against 31 shots as the Wild opted to start him over Game One hero Filip Gustavsson. The Stars and Wild are tied at a game apiece in the best-of-seven series. Game Three is in St. Paul tomorrow.


The Twins belted three home runs during a 10-4 win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Edouard Julien hit a two-run shot during a three-run first inning, and Joey Gallo went deep in a four-run third. Trevor Larnach also hit a home run in the victory, and Joe Ryan improved to 4-and-0 after allowing three runs in six innings. Brent Headrick picked up the save in his Major League debut as the Twins remain in first place in the AL Central at 11-and-7. Kenta Maeda starts for Minnesota against the Red Sox this afternoon. Hear game on KWNG & WBHA at noon with 1st pitch at 12:35 pm.


The Vikings may be looking for a new quarterback. Pro Football Talk is reporting that Minnesota is one of the teams that called the San Francisco 49ers discussing a potential trade for Trey Lance. Minnesota already has Kirk Cousins under contract, but his deal expires at the end of 2023. Lance completed just over 48 percent of his passes for 194 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception before suffering a season-ending injury in the second game of the season last year.


The Bucks earned a statement win without their best player in a 138-122 Game Two victory over the Heat in Milwaukee. Brook Lopez led the team with 25 points while Jrue Holiday netted 24 of his own to go with 11 assists. Giannis Antetokounmpo missed the game with a back contusion and is considered day-to-day. Milwaukee evened the best-of-seven series at one game apiece as the series shifts to Miami for Game Three on Saturday.


The Packers are in a good spot to trade down in next week's draft. USA Today says the most likely scenario for Green Bay is trading away its first-round pick. Packers-Wire contributor Zach Kruse says it's an ideal year to trade down and acquire more draft capital. He said, "moving down and picking up another Day Two or early Day Three pick probably makes the most sense." The Pack have the 15th overall pick in the draft, which starts next Thursday.


The Brewers swept the Mariners following a 5-3 victory from Seattle. The team trailed 2-0 in the seventh inning until Luke Voit singled-home a run and Brice Turang drove in two more as part of a five-run inning. Eric Lauer got the win after pitching seven-plus innings of two-run ball. The Brewers improved to 14-and-5 and are still first in the NL Central. The team opens a three-game series against the Red Sox at home tomorrow night. Freddy Peralta gets the start.
