The Timberwolves look to stay atop the Western Conference when they host the San Antonio Spurs at Target Center tonight. The Wolves are coming off a 101-86 win over the Brooklyn Nets last Saturday. Minnesota is tied with Oklahoma City for first place in the West at 40-and-17. Tonight's game tips off at 7:00PM.


The Wild go for their third win in a row when they host the Carolina Hurricanes at the Xcel Energy Center tonight. The Wild just beat the Seattle Kraken 5-2 on Saturday. Minnesota is tied for fifth place in the Central Division with 62 points and a 28-24-and-6 record. The Wild are just four points back of the Western Conference's final playoff spot. Tonight's contest starts at 7:00PM.


The Twins have found their fourth outfielder. The team traded for Dodgers outfielder Manuel Margot yesterday. Minnesota sent back shortstop prospect Noah Miller and also received infield prospect Rayne Doncon to complete the deal. Margot is known for his speed and defense, while his offense is typically a tick below average. He hit .264 with four home runs and 38 RBI in 99 games with the Rays last season. In other Twins news, Minnesota lost to the Yankees 9-2 in Spring Training yesterday. They host the Phillies today.


The Brewers fell to the Reds 8-3 in a spring training game from Phoenix. Joey Ortiz drove in a run off an RBI double in the sixth inning. Bryse Wilson got the start and walked one batter over a scoreless inning. The Brew Crew are now 1-and-2 in exhibition play and will visit the Angels this afternoon.


The Bucks hit the hardwood again tonight. The team tips off against the Hornets at Fiserv Forum. Milwaukee is coming off a big win over the 76ers where Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for a double-double. The Bucks have won back-to-back games and sit third in the Eastern Conference.


College basketball returns tonight. Wisconsin is 18-and-9 and visits Indiana. Elsewhere, Number-5 Marquette is 21-and-6 and hosts Providence tomorrow night, while the Milwaukee Panthers are 15-and-14 and visit IUPUI on the same night.
