Wolves beat Blazers for 3rd straight win since Butler trade

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Kevin Garnett showed up courtside, and that wasn't the only surprise in Minnesota on Friday night.

In their first week without erstwhile defensive stalwart Jimmy Butler, the new-look Timberwolves locked down one of the Western Conference's top teams.

Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points, Derrick Rose had 17 and the Wolves won their third straight game since trading Butler by beating the Portland Trail Blazers 112-96 on Friday night.
