"I just tried to make an aggressive move and dunk", Wiggins said.

Noel was averaging 5 points and 4.7 rebounds heading into the game against Minnesota.

"It's unbelievable how they stayed connected throughout the whole game", he said.

"I don't even remember when I was 32", Thunder coach Billy Donovan joked before the game.

Oklahoma City Thunder center Nerlens Noel had to be carried off the court on a stretcher Tuesday night after suffering a scary fall during a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves - and Thunder officials still hadn't provided an update or revealed the extent of Noel's injuries as of Wednesday morning. Noel rose up to meet him at the rim, and while the two were in mid-air, Wiggins' lead arm caught Noel right in the face.

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins appeared to call Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder "gay" when questioned about Schroder's on-court behavior in a postgame interview, but Wiggins later denied making the homophobic remark once his comments went viral on Twitter. I think he fell wrong but I didn't really see until I saw him on the ground. Westbrook added 25 points and 16 assists while Steven Adams scored 20.

National Basketball Association player Nerlens Noel had to be stretchered off the court after getting knocked out in a sickening fall during a game on Tuesday night.

Said Thunder star Russell Westbrook: "I'd just rather not talk about it". "He obviously comes from a great pedigree with his dad (the late Flip Saunders), and he's been around it for a long time, and being around Thibs and in the game, so I'm sure he'll do a good job".

Josh Okogie's corner 3-pointer with 26.8 seconds left put the Timberwolves up 119-115.

Westbrook made two more free throws to close the gap to the final margin of two points.

Thunder: G Alex Abrines missed his fifth consecutive game for personal reasons. He's not someone I look at as a problem.
