      OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Klay Thompson scored 28 points with six 3-pointers, Stephen Curry had 22 points, eight assists and eight rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 125-101 on Wednesday night for their fifth straight win.
 
     Even without injured Kevin Durant, the defending champs began to look like their dominant old selves.
 
     Draymond Green posted another all-round balanced performance with seven points, six rebounds, six assists and two blocks for the Warriors, who played without NBA Finals MVP Durant as he nursed a bruised left thigh.
 
     Andre Iguodala started in place of Durant, and the 2015 Finals MVP scored a season-high 11 points. The Warriors notched a season-best quarter with 44 points in the third to pull away after leading 51-50 at halftime.
 
     Andrew Wiggins scored 17 points and Karl-Anthony Towns had 16 points and 12 rebounds as the Timberwolves had their five-game winning streak snapped.
 
     This marked the first regular-season matchup between the teams after they played a pair of exhibition games in China last month.
 
     It's the first time the teams faced off each atop their respective divisions. Only three times previously had they played both with records of .500 or above.
 
     Thompson shot 11 for 20 overall and 6 of 12 from long range. Omri Casspi added 13 points, three blocks and two steals.
 
     Golden State had to overcome another cold start on offense, shooting 8 for 22 in the first quarter - 4 of 10 on 3s. Two days earlier in a win against Miami, the Warriors shot 36.8 percent and 11 of 32 from beyond the arc.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     TORONTO (AP) - Frederik Andersen made 35 saves to help the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Minnesota Wild 4-2 on Wednesday night.
 
     Nazem Kadri, Patrick Marleau, Connor Carrick and Connor Brown scored for Toronto. Playing with star center Auston Matthews out day to day with an upper-body injury, Toronto improved to 10-7-0.
 
     Jason Zucker scored twice for Minnesota, and Devan Dubnyk stopped 15 shots. The Wild have lost three in a row to fall to 5-7-2.
 
     Toronto coach Mike Babcock shifted Marleau to the middle with Matthews out. Matthews was scratched for the first time since being drafted in 2016, playing in 98 straight games including all 82 last year in his Calder Trophy winning campaign.
 
     Toronto went the first 8:49 without a shot on net despite having a power-play opportunity only two minutes into the contest.
 
     Kadri finally opened the scoring when a lucky bounce or two benefited Toronto at 12:56 of the first. Morgan Rielly's point shot missed the net, but the puck ricocheted off the end boards back out front and hit Dubnyk in the leg before caroming into the net. It was announced as Rielly's goal, but replays showed Kadri got a piece of Rielly's shot with his stick and he was eventually credited with his ninth goal of the season.
 
     Zucker tied it for Minnesota with 1:45 to play in the first, banging in a rebound from the top of the crease on a play that started with Toronto turning the puck over behind its net.
 
     Marleau restored the lead for Toronto with his sixth of the season 3:47 into the second. He took a pass from Zach Hyman and beat Dubnyk five-hole from between the faceoff circles.
 
     Andersen was solid for Toronto in the second, most notably when the Leafs took three straight minor penalties, including two tripping calls on defenseman Andreas Borgman.
 
     First, he made a big save on Matt Cullen with his right pad to keep it tied before the Leafs rushed the puck up the ice for their second goal. Then he robbed Tyler Ennis from in close after a turnover midway through the frame to hold the lead.
 
     Carrick gave the Leafs some breathing room 3:40 into the third period with his first of the year when his point shot deflected past Dubnyk for a 3-1 lead. Matt Martin was originally credited with the goal.
 
     The Leafs caught a break with 9:37 to play in regulation when Andersen appeared to tweak his right arm and was in discomfort, but he stayed in the game after taking a TV timeout to speak with the training staff at the bench.
 
     Carrick took a roughing penalty and Zucker scored his second of the night while on a power play with 4:59 to go on a similar play as his first goal by banging home a rebound from the top of the crease.
 
     Brown scored an empty-netter with 30 seconds to play.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Boston Celtics now own a double-digit winning streak after knocking off an old rival from the NBA's Western Conference.
 
     Aron Baynes matched his career high with 21 points and Kyrie Irving added 19 as the Celtics downed the Lakers 107-96. Baynes also had eight rebounds and three assists for the Celts, who saw a 20-point, first-half lead shrink to two in the third quarter before improving to an NBA-best 10-2.
 
     Boston played without big man Al Horford after he was placed in concussion protocol earlier Wednesday.
 
     Brandon Ingram and Jordan Clarkson each had a team-high 18 points for the Lakers, who also got 16 points and 12 boards from Julius Randle.
 
     Also in the NBA:
 
     - Minnesota's five-game winning streak is over after Klay Thompson hit six 3-pointers while scoring 28 points in the Warriors' fifth consecutive win, 125-101 over the Timberwolves. Stephen Curry had 22 points, eight assists and eight rebounds to help Golden State win easily without the injured Kevin Durant. Andre Iguodala had 11 points for the Warriors, who led by just one before torching Minnesota for 74 points in the second half.
 
     - Nikola Vucevic had 24 points and Evan Fournier delivered 23 as the Magic sent the Knicks to just the second loss in their last eight games 112-99. Jonathan Simmons helped Orlando close out the win by scoring 15 of his 16 points in the second half, including 11 straight early in the fourth quarter.
 
     - The Pistons won for the sixth time in seven games as Tobias Harris contributed 23 points to a 114-97 win against the Pacers. Andre Drummond added 14 points and 21 rebounds for the Central Division-leading Pistons, who sent Indiana to its fourth consecutive loss.
 
     - Former Phoenix guard Goran Dragic scored a season-high 29 points in the Heat's 126-115 victory over the Suns. Hassan Whiteside added 23 points, 10 rebounds and four blocked shots for Miami, which shot 53 percent and nailed 12 3-pointers.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - The New York Rangers have been on a nice roll since dropping seven of their first eight games. The Blueshirts picked up their fifth straight win and improved to 8-7-2 by beating the Bruins 4-2. Jimmy Vesey scored twice in a 29-second span of a first period in which the Rangers outshot Boston 16-7. Pavel Buchnevich and Rick Nash also scored to support Henrik Lundqvist, who handled 31 shots.
 
     Elsewhere on NHL ice:
 
     - Vladimir Namestnikov, Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov each had three-point nights as the Lightning whipped the Sharks 5-1 to improve to 12-2-2. Namestnikov had two goals and an assist, Kucherov notched his league-high 15th goal and Stamkos picked up three more assists. Stamkos leads the NHL with 21 assists and 28 points, while Tampa Bay tops the league with 26 points.
 
     - Patrick Marleau's second-period goal put the Maple Leafs ahead to stay before Connor Carrick provided the eventual game-winner in a 4-2 triumph over the Wild. Connor Brown scored an empty-netter and had an assist to help Toronto overcome Jason Zucker's two goals. The Leafs won without Auston Matthews, who missed the game with what the team is calling an upper-body injury.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA has fined Oklahoma Thunder head coach Billy Donovan, forward Paul George and guard Russell Westbrook $15,000 apiece for publicly criticizing game officials following Sunday's loss to Portland.
 
     The three were angry after Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony was ejected for a flagrant-2 call on a play in which a foul was called on Jusuf Nurkic. Donovan said after the game that he thought the play should have been reviewed before Anthony was tossed.
 
     The league says Anthony's flagrant 2 foul from Sunday's game will stand, but the flagrant issued to Russell Westbrook in last night's loss to Sacramento has been rescinded.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is reportedly ready to fight a proposed contract extension for Commissioner Roger Goodell.
 
     A person with knowledge of the situation says Jones told the six owners on the compensation committee he had hired high-profile attorney David Boies and was prepared to sue if the group voted to extend Goodell's deal. Jones has since been embroiled in a dispute sparked by Goodell's six-game suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott over alleged domestic violence.
 
     All 32 owners voted in May to extend Goodell's contract and authorized the compensation committee to work out the details.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - The Green Bay Packers have waived Martellus Bennett, who had 24 catches for 233 yards in seven starts this year. The Packers cited a "failure to disclose a physical condition" for making the move. Bennett signed with the Packers as an unrestricted free agent last offseason after helping the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl.
 
     - The Minnesota Vikings have taken Teddy Bridgewater off the physically unable to perform list and placed fellow quarterback Sam Bradford on injured reserve amid continued trouble with his left knee. Bridgewater was added to the active roster Wednesday for the first time since he badly injured his left knee during practice more than 14 months ago.
 
     - The Bengals have put right tackle Jake Fisher on injured reserve, ending his season and leaving their struggling offensive line in flux. Fisher became ill and was taken to a hospital in Jacksonville during a 23-7 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday. He saw a doctor on Tuesday who recommended a procedure that will sideline him the rest of the season.
 
     - The Denver Broncos have placed right tackle Menelik Watson on injured reserve with a foot injury and signed free agent tackle Cyrus Kouandjio. Watson got hurt Sunday in Philadelphia.
 
     - The NFL players union wants everyone in the league to honor a two-minute moment of silence on Sunday in observance of U.S. military veterans. Last year, President Barack Obama signed into law the Veterans Day Moment of Silence Act, which calls on all Americans to observe a two-minute moment of silence every November 11th. With Veterans Day falling on Saturday this year, the players union voted to ask everyone in the NFL community to observe this moment of silence Sunday prior to kickoffs.

     FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Witnesses to Roy Halladay's fatal plane crash have told federal investigators the two-time Cy Young Award winner was flying his tiny sport plane low over the Gulf of Mexico shortly before it slammed into the water. National Transportation Safety Board Investigator Noreen Price said Wednesday that Halladay's ICON A5 experienced a "high-energy impact" with the water. Price said it was too early to say whether Tuesday's crash was related to two earlier crashes this year of A5s, one of them that killed both the plane's chief designer and test pilot.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     BOSTON (AP) - New Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora has filled out his staff on Wednesday by making Dana LeVangie the pitching coach and adding Ramon Vazquez to the coaching staff. LeVangie has spent his entire 27-year baseball career in the Red Sox organization and has been the team's bullpen coach for the past five seasons.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn has fired associate head basketball coach Chuck Person, who has been indicted on federal bribery, conspiracy and fraud charges. School officials say Person was dismissed before he and seven others were indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in New York City. Person allegedly received $91,500 in bribes to steer Auburn players to Pittsburgh financial adviser Marty Blazer when they turn pro.
