     Reggie Jackson added 20 points and nine assists for Oklahoma City, which became the NBA's first team this season to 40 wins.

     OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love didn't play against the Oklahoma City Thunder because of a stiff neck.  Without Love and two other starters in Wednesday night's lineup, the Timberwolves lost to the Thunder 106-97.
 
     The Timberwolves say Love hurt his neck in a hard fall during the fourth quarter of Minnesota's win Tuesday over the Los Angeles Lakers.  Minnesota coach Rick Adelman said Love had treatment before Wednesday's game in an attempt to play. He was in the starting lineup given to media before the team announced he would be out.
 
     Minnesota also is without injured starting center Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and starting forward Corey Brewer, who missed the game after the birth of a son on Tuesday.

     UNDATED (AP) - A person familiar with his decision tells The Associated Press that Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel will void the 2014 option on his contract and test the open market.

Cassel would have made $3.7 million next season if he exercised the option by Friday.
