(SportsNetwork.com) - The Oklahoma City Thunder will hit the road Friday for a matchup with the Northwest-rival Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center. The Thunder defeated a LeBron James-less Cleveland Cavaliers squad, 103-94, Thursday night and were led by Russell Westbrooks 26 points. Kevin Durant scored 19 points and Reggie Jackson netted 13 in the winning cause. Russell, thats the thing, he is so good offensively, but he is also a great defender, Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. OKC has won four in a row and six of the last seven games, and is 4-1 since Durants return from offseason foot surgery. Oklahoma City, which has scored 100 or more points in two straight and five of the previous six games, has won two in a row on the road, but is only 3-8 as the guest. The Timberwolves will resume a four-game homestand (1-1) Friday and stopped a six-game slide with Wednesdays 90-82 triumph over the Portland Trail Blazers. Rookie Andrew Wiggins posted the first double-double of his career with 23 points and 10 rebounds, while Corey Brewer scored 19 points and Thaddeus Young chipped in 13. The baby Wolves grew up tonight at times, said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. Wiggins looked like the No. 1 overall pick tonight. He knew that we were going to him in the fourth. Minnesota won for just the third time in the last 17 games and improved to 3-8 at Target Center this season. The Wolves will close the stay Sunday versus the Los Angeles Lakers. In injury news for the T-wolves, veteran guard Mo Williams (back spasms) is doubtful for Fridays game. Williams has missed the last four games. The team is still without guards Kevin Martin (wrist) and Ricky Rubio (ankle) and center Nikola Pekovic (ankle/wrist). The Wolves and Thunder are playing the first of four meetings this season, OKC won three of four matchups in this series last season and is 17-3 in the past 20 games against Minnesota.

Broughton downs HuddersfieldJodie Broughton made a sensational return to his former home as his hat-trick helped Catalans to a 46-26 win over Huddersfield Giants.Giants head coach Paul Anderson refused to hide behind the sending off of Joe Wardle for a high tackle and didnt hold back as he laid into the attitude and commitment of his team. All the action from the Super League clash between Huddersfield and Catalans We could use the sending off as an excuse to paper over the cracks but when our attitude at the beginning of the game - giving them the scores that we did - was like it was, I felt overall we got what we deserved, said Anderson.Going 12-0 down and then 20-12 up stinks because it suggests we made a decision to crack on with what our job is, then suddenly decide not to again in the second half.Our start was poor, the second part of the first half was quite good but the second half was abysmal. We gave in and if people want to be part of this club that is not the character that we want.Its embarrassing and if people want to play for the Giants, they wont if they play like that.Phil the Viking Widnes stretched their lead at the top of Super League to two points with a 18-12 win over Wigan Widnes beat Wigan 18-12 on Thursday in a fantastic comeback that handed the Warriors their first home Super League defeat for 21 months.The victory made it a best-ever start to a Super League season for the Vikings and our very own Phil Clarke may need to head down to Select Security Stadium Halton to get fitted out for his mascot uniform.I am scared of making any predictions about where Widnes will finish in 2016, said Phil in his weekly column for Sky Sports. Phil Clarke brings you his top five Super League tries of the week I have seen what Gary Lineker said about Leicester City and dont want to strip down to my underwear! I still think that if they finish in the top eight after 23 rounds they will have done remarkably well but I am still not convinced that they will be able to do that.Go on then: If Widnes finish in the top four I will be their mascot for a match!The cost of winning All the action from the Super League clash between Hull KR and Salford Hull KR ended their nine-month losing streak with a 44-30 win over Salford, however they face a serious injury crisis ahead of Fridays derby against Hull FC.dddddddddddde only had 18 fit players; Kieran Dixon was the only one in our squad who didnt play that was fit, Webster said.Shaun Lunt hasnt trained with us yet, but were hoping he will during the week. Its a short turnaround; were two days behind Hull because they played Friday and well need to make a call on everyone come Wednesday.It gives us three days to prepare. Albert Kelly has done some training but not with us, and hes another one that well have to wait on until Wednesday. James Greenwood and Graeme Horne both came off so theyre inevitably doubts for the game too.St Helens respond to Lance Hohaia St Helens have responded to claims made by Lance Hohaia Saints reacted angrily to allegations made by Lance Hohaia, who claimed the Super League club pressured him to play while he was still experiencing concussion symptoms.Hohaia was punched twice by Wigans Ben Flower in the Super League Grand Final in 2014. Hohaia retired in April 2015 but in a recent interview with New Zealands Sunday Herald newspaper, claimed that he asked for time to rest to recover but was offered prescription medicines and told to play on.Hohaias version of events at St Helens between the Grand Final in 2014 and his voluntary resignation without notice six months later is utterly inaccurate and malicious, the Super League club said in statement.Throughout that time he received the highest level of professional support and empathy, both rugby and medical. His subsequent version of ongoing concussive symptoms were entirely retrospective and only raised by him at the end of that period.At no time was he put under any pressure or duress by the club to play and he was provided with highest level of professional advice and support by the club. St Helens set the very highest standards in that regard.Sam Burgess injury Sam Burgess of the Rabbitohs is taken from the field after a scary incident It was good to see South Sydney Rabbitohs Sam Burgess has been cleared of any serious neck and spinal injuries.Burgess was rushed to hospital after being involved in an accidental clash of heads with another Englishman, former Warrington prop Mike Cooper, in an NRL match against St George Illawarra.However, the Rabbitohs say MRI and CT scans have shown there is no damage to the vertebrae or spinal cord.Were all very happy to know that Sam hasnt suffered any serious injuries from yesterdays game, said South Sydney head coach Michael Maguire.I spoke to Sam and he feels very lucky and he wants to thank the medical staff from both the Rabbitohs and Dragons for their professionalism, the doctors and hospital staff who cared for him last night and this morning, as well as the members and fans for their support and kind words.We will continue to monitor Sams welfare and he knows he is in the best of hands with our medical staff as we move forward.Sinfield: My greatest week Leeds Kevin Sinfield with the trophy after the 2012 Grand Final We are looking forward to getting our hands on Kevin Sinfields book - Kevin Sinf13ld My League Years in Words and Pictures.The pictorial history of his career will be launched this Saturday at Leeds Rhinos Headingley Carnegie store and in it Sinfield reveals why he almost quit the game in 2008 and shares the greatest week of his rugby league career.In 2012 we won the Grand Final and I won the Harry Sunderland award, says Sinfield in an extract in the Yorkshire Evening Post.Two days later Steve [McNamara, the England coach] gave me the captains job and that was probably the best week of my career.The book charts Sinfields rugby league journey from the day he first joined Oldham amateur club Waterhead through to last years all-conquering campaign.
