The Timberwolves weren't able to rally back from a 22-point deficit during a 112-106 loss to the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Minnesota was outscored 38-17 in an embarrassing second quarter, but the Wolves got within four in the final frame before New York put the game away. Anthony Edwards poured in 35 points in the losing effort, while Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 29. Minnesota is in first place in the Western Conference at 24-and-8. Minnesota hosts New Orleans tomorrow.

The Wild aim to avoid a third straight loss when they host the Calgary Flames at the Xcel Energy Center tonight. The Wild are coming off back-to-back losses against the Winnipeg Jets over the weekend. Minnesota is in seventh place in the Central Division with 36 points and a 16-15-and-4 record.

The Vikings wrap up their 2023 season when they visit the Detroit Lions this Sunday. Minnesota still has an outside chance of making it to the postseason despite losing five of its last six games. The Vikings need to beat Detroit and hope that the Bears beat the Packers, the Cardinals beat the Seahawks, and either New Orleans or Tampa Bay lose their games.

The Packers are gearing up for their regular season finale. The team kicks off against the Bears at Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon. Green Bay is coming off a big win over the Vikings on Sunday Night Football to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Packers are currently clinging to an NFC Wild Card spot at 8-and-8.

Wisconsin ended its football season on a low note. The team fell to 13th-ranked LSU 35-31 in the ReliaQuest Bowl from Tampa. Tanner Mordecai completed 27-of-40 passes for 378 yards and three touchdowns. Will Pauling erupted for 143 yards on eight catches to go with a pair of scores. Bryson Green had 105 yards and also found the end zone as the Badgers finish the season 7-and-6.

The Bucks fell to the Pacers 122-113 at Fiserv Forum. Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 30 points and tallied a triple-double on 18 rebounds and 11 assists. Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez each sunk 21, while Damian Lillard struggled to 13 points on 3-of-16 shooting. Milwaukee still leads the Central Division at 24-and-9 and will visit Indy in a rematch tomorrow night.
