At Calvary we see God's faithfulness and our unfaithfulness come to sharpest expression. The supremely faithful, ever-trusting Son of God crucified by rebels, for rebels. Friends, look at the cross.

     WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Josh Morrissey one-timed in a goal with 7:17 left to end Minnesota's rally from four goals down and give the Winnipeg Jets a chaotic 5-4 victory over the Wild on Sunday.
 
     It was Minnesota's fifth straight loss. The last time the Wild lost five in a row was the final five regular season games last spring. They only have two wins in their last 10 games.
 
     Winnipeg led 4-0 early in the second period after scoring on four of its first eight shots, but the Wild rallied with four straight goals in the second period.
 
     Andrew Copp and Adam Lowry scored on Winnipeg's first and third shots, respectively, and Ben Chiarot and Dustin Byfuglien also found the back of the net. Mathieu Perreault and Blake Wheeler each had a pair of assists, with Wheeler getting to 500 career points.
 
     Chris Stewart scored twice and Charlie Coyle and Mikael Granlund also had goals for the Wild.

     NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anthony Davis had 28 points and 12 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves 123-109 on Sunday.
 
     DeMarcus Cousins added 15 points and 11 rebounds in his return from a one-game absence because of left knee and rib soreness. Reserve guard Jordan Crawford scored 22 points in 21 minutes for the Pelicans, who have won four of five. Jrue Holiday had 21 points, shooting 4 of 5 from 3-point range.
 
     Karl-Anthony Towns scored 33 for the Timberwolves, who lost their third straight. Andrew Wiggins added 25 points and reserve Shabazz Muhammad had 20 for the Minnesota. Ricky Rubio chipped in with 10 points and 14 assists for the Wolves, who built a 13-point lead in the second quarter only to fade late as New Orleans closed the game on a 21-10 run.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to terms on a deal with free agent forward Omri Casspi.
 
     The two sides came to agreement on Sunday in New Orleans. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Timberwolves have not announced the deal.
 
     Casspi was traded from Sacramento to New Orleans in the deal that brought DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans. But he suffered a broken thumb in his first game with New Orleans and had to be waived. The injury has healed enough for Casspi to garner interest from teams again, and he met with Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau in New Orleans on Sunday to finish the deal.
 
     ESPN first reported the discussions.
