NBA Thunder C Noel leaves on stretcher vs. Timberwolves

Video: Andrew Wiggins Calls Dennis Schroder

Thunder’s Nerlens Noel Stretchered Off Following Scary Collision, Fall

In a checkered suit and blue tie, Minnesota interim head coach Ryan Saunders called over Josh Okogie.

His debut was a down-to-the wire finish with the Oklahoma City Thunder, one of the best teams in the Western Conference.

Andrew Wiggins probably really wants this comment back.

Saunders deflected credit after the game.

The Thunder brought the game within two and after a Tyus Jones traveling violation against OKC's full-court press, they had a chance to tie or win the game. "Down the stretch, there were so many times where we could have disbanded and then the crowd could have got into us". Thibodeau was sacked Sunday after the Timberwolves' home win over the Lakers.

Noel joined the National Basketball Association in 2013 as the sixth-overall pick of the draft, going to the New Orleans Pelicans before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The number six overall pick of the 2013 draft is averaging 5.1 points and 4.6 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per game this season.

In giving a speech from the Oval Office , Trump was drawing on an often-used tactic of communication by his predecessors. But that legislation didn't authorize the kind of wall Trump has always been advocating since he launched his campaign.


"He fed off our energy, and we fed off his energy", Timberwolves forward Taj Gibson said. It wouldn't even really make sense for him to call Schroder gay in that context, so it seems like he was telling the truth.

Wiggins received help from Karl-Anthony Towns (20 points) and the bench (37 points) on Tuesday.

Wiggins sent his well wishes to Noel following the game.

Paul George scored 27 points and Steven Adams added 20 points and 12 rebounds for Oklahoma City.

On the dunk attempt, Noel took an elbow in the face as Wiggins went up, and Noel's head hit the ground hard. Teague was called for a double technical and ejected after a review.

The 24-year-old was motionless for several minutes but was conscious when he was being taken off the court on a stretcher and then to the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma, where he would be held overnight.

I said: "'I don't know what's wrong with him he was just getting... acting insane for no reason, '" Wiggins wrote.
