TODAY'S THOUGHT

The Advent season narrows our gaze toward the King in a manger who came to be our King on the cross. The only King who ever established His kingdom, not by exerting power, but by giving it up. Not by eradicating His enemies, but by dying for them.

     NBA NEWS
 
     UNDATED (AP) - Jimmy Butler has returned to practice with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the first time this season. He told ESPN in an interview taped and aired Wednesday that he was "brutally honest" with teammates and other officials during that workout. Butler asked the Timberwolves to trade him elsewhere last month, and said much of an earlier ESPN report Wednesday stating he had outbursts during the practice session was largely accurate. Butler is a four-time All-Star who can become a free agent after the season.

     NHL SCHEDULE
 
     WASHINGTON (AP) - Evgeny Kuznetsov continued his dominance against the Vegas Golden Knights, scoring a goal and assisting on three more as part of a 5-2 Washington Capitals victory Wednesday night in a rematch of last season's Stanley Cup Final.
 
     Kuznetsov assisted on two goals by Alex Ovechkin and one by Nicklas Backstrom and scored his own on the power play. The leading scorer in the Cup Final with eight points in five games, Kuznetsov has seven points through the defending champions' first three games of the regular season.
 
     Coming off a 49-goal season and a Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP, Ovechkin has four goals in three games. The 610th and 611th goals of his career put him in sole possession of 17th on the NHL's career list, passing Bobby Hull.
 
     Braden Holtby, who made "the save" with his stick in Game 2 of the Final, stopped 29 of 31 shots and bailed out his teammates during an especially sloppy second period. Holtby allowed goals to Cody Eakin in the second period and Reilly Smith in the third.
 
     In other NHL action:
 
     - Jakub Voracek and Scott Laughton scored two goals apiece, and the Philadelphia Flyers rebounded from an embarrassing loss to beat the Ottawa Senators 7-4 on Wednesday night. Sean Couturier, Robert Hagg and Claude Giroux also scored for the Flyers, who were coming off an 8-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks in their home opener a night earlier. Calvin Pickard stopped 31 shots.
 
     - Nick Cousins scored in the shootout, Antti Raanta made 23 saves and the Coyotes earned their first win of the season. Dylan Strome and Brad Richardson scored for Arizona (1-2), which dropped its first 11 games last season. The Coyotes got their first goal this season when Strome converted a power-play opportunity with 2 1/2 minutes left in the first. They were the last NHL team to score. Anaheim was trying for the first 4-0 start in franchise history. Ryan Kesler and Ben Street scored for the Ducks (3-1), and John Gibson made 37 saves.

     NFL NEWS
 
     UNDATED (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs signed former Cleveland Browns linebacker Nate Orchard to shore up their pass rush with linebackers Justin Houston and Dee Ford hobbled by injuries. Houston could miss several weeks after hurting his hamstring in Kansas City's win over Jacksonville. Ford has dealt with a series of minor injuries this season. The 25-year-old Orchard was a second-round pick of the Browns in the 2015 draft.
 
     Elsewhere around the league:
 
     - The Jacksonville Jaguars have ruled out running back Leonard Fournette for their game at Dallas. It will be the fourth game Fournette has missed this season. Coach Doug Marrone says Fournette (hamstring), left tackle Josh Wells (groin) and cornerback D.J. Hayden (toe) will all miss Sunday's game. The Jaguars signed veteran Jamaal Charles yesterday with the expectation that Fournette would be sidelined an extended period.
 
     - The Detroit Lions have acquired cornerback Lenzy Pipkins via waivers from the Indianapolis Colts and released linebacker Marquis Flowers. Pipkins spent time on the Colts' practice squad and active roster earlier this season, appearing in one game. Detroit has an open date this week.
 
     - The Tennessee Titans have filled their fifth wide receiver spot by promoting Cameron Batson from the practice squad. The Titans filled the open roster spot a day after waiving receiver Nick Williams, who was beaten by a defender that turned the play into an interception and also dropped a would-be touchdown pass in the fourth quarter in Tennessee's loss in Buffalo. Batson signed with Tennessee as an undrafted rookie free agent in May.

    COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS
 
     LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Kansas fired offensive coordinator Doug Meacham with six games left in the season Wednesday, ending the short tenure of what coach David Beaty hailed as a game-changing hire just last year. Meacham had spent the previous three seasons as the co-offensive coordinator at Big 12 rival TCU when Beaty lured him to the Jayhawks. Meacham was expected to install a variation of the Air Raid offense that would put up the kind of points not seen in Lawrence in a decade.
 
     Instead, the Jayhawks managed just 18.7 points per game last season. That has ticked up to 27.7 this year, but the Jayhawks are averaging just 19 points during three conference losses. Beaty plans to handle play-calling duties when the Jayhawks face Texas Tech on Oct. 20.

     NASCAR NEWS
 
     CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - There will be no eighth NASCAR title for Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus. Hendrick Motorsports will split the driver and crew chief at the end of this season. Johnson and Knaus were partnered in 2002 when Knaus built the No. 48 team as part of a Hendrick expansion. They won a record-tying seven titles and made the playoffs in all 15 years of its existence. Kevin Meendering will return to Hendrick Motorsports after a stint as crew chief for Elliott Sadler in the Xfinity Series to lead Johnson.

     OBIT-TEX WINTER
 
     MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Tex Winter, the innovative "Triangle Offense" pioneer who assisted Phil Jackson on 11 NBA championship teams with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, has died. He was 96. Kansas State University said Winter died Wednesday in Manhattan.
 
     Winter published "The Triple-Post Offense" in 1962 and teamed with Jackson to use the system to great success with Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. Winter assisted Jackson on championship teams with the Bulls in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997 and 1998, and the Lakers in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2009.
 
     Inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011, Winter spent more than six decades in coaching. He was 451-336 as a college head coach at Marquette (1951-53), Kansas State (1954-68), Washington (1969-72), Northwestern (1975-78) and Long Beach State (1978-83). He coached the Houston Rockets in 1972-74, going 51-78.
