     OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Andrew Wiggins had a season-high 40 points and 10 rebounds, and the Timberwolves beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 119-117 on Tuesday night in Ryan Saunders' first game as Minnesota's interim coach. Saunders, just 32 years old, is the son of former Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders. The team fired Tom Thibodeau on Sunday.
     Karl-Anthony Towns scored 20 points and Dario Saric added 15 for the Timberwolves.
     Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook missed two 3-pointers in the closing seconds that would have given the Thunder the lead. He finished with 25 points and 16 assists.
     Paul George scored 27 points and Steven Adams added 20 points and 12 rebounds for Oklahoma City.
     Thunder reserve center Nerlens Noel was taken off the court on a stretcher in the third quarter after Wiggins made contact with him on a dunk attempt.
     Noel took an elbow in the face as Wiggins went up, and Noel hit the ground hard. A defensive foul was called on Noel. The play was reviewed, and no additional fouls were called. Noel was down for several minutes before being taken away from the court. There was no immediate word on Noel's condition.
     In the fourth quarter, Oklahoma City guard Dennis Schroder somehow won a jump ball with Towns, and Westbrook hit a 3-pointer to give the Thunder a 111-110 lead.
     Josh Okogie's corner 3-pointer with 26.8 seconds left put the Timberwolves up 119-115.
     Westbrook made two free throws, then Minnesota's Tyus Jones traveled with 15.5 seconds left to give the Thunder a chance.
     Timberwolves: G Derrick Rose missed his sixth straight game with a sprained right ankle. ... F Robert Covington missed his fourth straight game with a bruised right knee. ... Timberwolves guard Jeff Teague was ejected in the third quarter after a skirmish with Schroder.

      GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Matt LaFleur has been named head coach of the Green Bay Packers, the team announced Tuesday night, confirming multiple reports from a day earlier.
     The 39-year-old LaFleur spent this season as offensive coordinator of the Tennessee Titans, his first calling plays in the NFL. Before that, he was offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams in 2017, helping direct a high-powered offense with coach Sean McVay calling plays.
     LaFleur takes over for Mike McCarthy, who was fired during the season following a stunning home loss to Arizona on Dec. 2. Joe Philbin went 2-2 as Green Bay's interim coach. LaFleur will be charged with returning the Packers to the playoffs after the team slipped into mediocrity in McCarthy's final two seasons and the coach's relationship with quarterback Aaron Rodgers grew tenuous.
     "We are very excited to welcome Matt as the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers," team president Mark Murphy said in a statement. "We found a coach with the background and experience that we think will get us back to playing winning football. We're also excited about the person - he is bright with a great work ethic and a perfect fit for Green Bay and the organization."
     LaFleur's 10 years of NFL coaching experience also include stints as an assistant with Atlanta, Washington and Houston.
     He will be introduced at a news conference today in Green Bay.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Toronto Raptors have reclaimed the NBA's top winning percentage despite struggling against one of the league's bottom-feeders on Tuesday.
     Serge Ibaka delivered the winning dunk with 17 seconds remaining and added a big rebound to help the Raptors secure a 104-101 victory over the Hawks.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals have dipped into the college ranks to find a head coach who can mentor young quarterback Josh Rosen. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have handed over the reins to one of the Cardinals' former coaches.
     The Cardinals have hired Kliff Kingsbury, who went 35-40 in six seasons at Texas Tech before his dismissal last month. Kingsbury will be trusted to resuscitate the worst offense in the NFL, one month after accepting a job as Southern California's offensive coordinator.
     Kingsbury's Texas Tech teams were known for their high-scoring performances and featured current Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Kingsbury was among the school's most prolific passers, completing 65.4 percent for 12,429 yards and 95 touchdowns in 43 games from 1999-02.
     He replaces Steve Wilks, who was fired after going an NFL-worst 3-13 in his one season in Arizona.
     The Bucs have coaxed Bruce Arians out of his one-year retirement to fill the team's fifth coaching vacancy in a decade.
     Arians replaces Dirk Koetter, who was dismissed Dec. 30 after leading the Bucs to 19 wins and no playoffs berths over three seasons.
     Arians coached the Cardinals for five years, stepping down after the 2017 season with a 50-32-1 record. His run included one division title, two playoff berths, three seasons with double-digit wins and one NFC championship game appearance.
     The Bucs have finished last in the NFC South seven of the past eight seasons.

     UNDATED (AP) - Texas wide receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey will skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft. Humphrey led the Longhorns with 86 catches for 1,176 yards and nine touchdowns as Texas won 10 games for the first time since 2009. The 6-foot-4 Humphrey caught the winning touchdown against Texas Tech when he wrestled the ball away from a defensive back and stretched into the end zone with 21 seconds left.
     Also in college football:
     - The Clemson flag is flying over the South Carolina State House after the Tigers' national championship win over Alabama. The flag was also atop the capital's dome two years back when Clemson won the crown. Clemson will have a parade and fan celebration at campus and the football stadium Saturday.

     UNDATED (AP) - A person with knowledge of the situation says the NBA is looking into the circumstances surrounding Cleveland's decision to sign Patrick McCaw to an offer sheet and then waive him after three games.
     The person says the inquiry comes at the request of the Golden State Warriors, who declined to match the Cavaliers' two-year, $6 million offer sheet. McCaw played 53 minutes for the Cavs and averaged 1.7 points after giving the Warriors four points a game his first two years in the league. The 23-year-old McCaw is a free agent after being let go by Cleveland on Sunday.

     UNDATED (AP) - The St. Louis Blues will spend at least two weeks without forward Alexander Steen because of a shoulder injury suffered in the first period of Monday's win over the Flyers. Steen has six goals and nine assists for 15 points in 32 games this season.
     Also around the NHL:
     - The Flyers have tied an NHL record by using their seventh goaltender this season, doing it in just 43 games. Mike McKenna became the seventh when he started Tuesday night against the Capitals. Brian Elliott, Michal Neuvirth, Calvin Pickard, Alex Lyon, Anthony Stolarz and Carter Hart have also tended goal for Philadelphia.

     UNDATED (AP) - Spending on Major League Baseball payrolls dropped last season for the first time since 2010, a decline attributable to drug and domestic violence suspensions and a player retiring at midseason. Teams combined to spend $4.23 billion on major league payroll last year, down $18 million. That's according to figures compiled by the commissioner's office and obtained by The Associated Press.
     Even a year with flat payrolls is unusual. The only previous drops since 2002 were by $3 million in 2010 and by $32 million in 2004.
     World Series champion Boston had the highest payroll for the first time since the free-agent era started in 1976 at $230 million. A record 24 teams had $100 million payrolls, and the Red Sox figure was the lowest for the top payroll since 2012.
     - Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia has been cleared to resume working out, including baseball activities. The 38-year-old left-hander had a blockage in one artery to his heart and had a procedure Dec. 11 to insert a stent to clear the blockage.
     - Two-time All-Star reliever Kelvin Herrera and the White Sox have finalized a two-year, $18 million contract that includes a $10 million team option for 2021 and a $1 million buyout. Herrera appeared in 48 games for the Royals and Nationals last season, going 2-3 with 17 saves and a 2.44 ERA.
     - Left-hander Hector Santiago has agreed to a minor league contract with the Mets. The 31-year-old had a 4.50 ERA and two saves in 42 relief appearances and seven starts last year for the White Sox.
     - The Dodgers have acquired right-handed pitcher Jaime Schultz from the Rays for minor league right-hander Caleb Sampen. Schultz was 2-2 with a 5.64 ERA in 22 appearances with one start for the Rays last year.
