     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jamal Crawford scored all 17 of his points in the fourth quarter and hit a 3-pointer with 27.5 seconds to go that helped the Minnesota Timberwolves hold off the Utah Jazz 100-97 in their home opener on Friday night.
 
     Andrew Wiggins had 21 points and Karl-Anthony Towns added 20 points and 10 boards for the Timberwolves in their first victory of the season. The Wolves led by 10 with five minutes to go before former point guard Ricky Rubio rallied the Jazz. But Crawford buried a 3 from the corner, his third in the period from beyond the arc, to clinch the win.
 
     Rubio had 19 points, 10 assists and five rebounds in his first game back in Minnesota. Rodney Hood scored 20 points before leaving with a left ankle injury, Derrick Favors scored 16 points and Rudy Gobert had 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Jazz.
 
     Rubio spent his first six seasons in Minnesota before being traded to Utah in July. He received a standing ovation from the crowd upon introductions before the game. He badly outplayed Jeff Teague, the point guard Minnesota jettisoned Rubio for, scoring 10 straight points for the Jazz in the final three minutes, including a free throw that put them up 96-95 with 55.6 seconds to play.
 
     Jimmy Butler hit a pair of free throws after Crawford's 3. Joe Johnson missed a desperation heave at the buzzer for the Jazz.

     WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Blake Wheeler scored the 200th goal of his NHL career with 6:46 left and the Winnipeg Jets held off the Minnesota Wild 4-3 on Friday night. Wheeler also helped Jets coach Paul Maurice become the 17th NHL coach to reach 600 victories.
 
     The Wild turned the puck over just outside their blue line and Kyle Connor fed a pass to Wheeler, who used a deke to beat goalie Devin Dubnyk at 13:14. The former University of Minnesota star's score made up for a disallowed Winnipeg goal midway through the period.
 
     Jets center Mark Scheifele appeared to have poked in the go-ahead goal, but it was overturned on a Minnesota challenge that Wheeler interfered with Dubnyk.
 
     Patrik Laine had a pair of power-play goals and Nikolaj Ehlers added his sixth goal of the season for Winnipeg. Scheifele and Dustin Byfuglien each had two assists, and Wheeler added one.
 
     Mikko Koivu, Mike Reilly and Chris Stewart scored for the Wild, and Jason Zucker had two of assists.
 
     Connor Hellebuyck made 25 saves for the Jets for his fourth victory of the season.
 
     Dubnyk stopped 26 shots for the rested Wild. They were playing their first game since their home opener last Saturday.

     HOUSTON (AP) - Justin Verlander and Jose Altuve have helped the Houston Astros force a Game 7 in the American League Championship Series. Verlander pitched seven shutout innings and Altuve drove in three runs as the Astros beat the Yankees, 7-1 in Houston to tie the series at three games apiece.
 
     Verlander baffled the Yanks for the second time in the series, holding them to five hits while striking out eight over the first seven frames. The veteran right-hander tossed a complete game in earning a 2-1 victory in Game 2.
 
     Altuve's two-run single put the Astros ahead 3-0 in the fifth inning, three batters after Brian McCann doubled home the game's first run. McCann also hit an RBI single in a four-run ninth after Altuve sparked the rally with a homer.
 
     Yankees starter Luis Severino was lifted after Altuve's fifth-inning single. Severino carried a one-hit shutout into the fifth before faltering.
 
    Game 7 is tonight in Houston. CC Sabathia is scheduled to start for New York against Charlie Morton in a rematch of Game 3, won 8-1 by Sabathia and the Yankees.

He's listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

     In other NHL news:
 
     - The league has issued a statement acknowledging video review incorrectly nullified a late-game goal by the Colorado Avalanche during a 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

The review determined that the play was offside, but on a previous entry into the zone, which is not supposed to be subject to a challenge.
