CAVALIERS-TIMBERWOLVES

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- LeBron James scored 16 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter to win a stirring duel with rookie Andrew Wiggins, leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 106-90 victory over the Timberwolves in Kevin Love's first game back in Minnesota since he was traded.

James kicked things into gear in the final nine minutes. He scored 13 straight points for the Cavs, who have won 10 straight.

Wiggins had 33 points and four steals for the Timberwolves (8-39), who gave Love and the Cavaliers all they could handle in front of a standing-room-only crowd.

Love was booed heavily and finished with 14 points on 6-for-14 shooting and 17 rebounds.

BLUE JACKETS-LIGHTNING

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Cedric Paquette got his fifth goal in the last three games, Ben Bishop made 34 saves, and the Atlantic Division-leading Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 on Saturday night for their franchise-best 10th straight home victory.

Brett Connolly and Valtteri Filppula also scored for Tampa Bay, which hasn't lost at home since a 5-3 loss to Washington on Dec. 9. Bishop lost his shutout bid when Ryan Johansen scored with 3:26 remaining.

Curtis McElhinney stopped 31 shots for the Blue Jackets, who are 0-18-0 when trailing entering the third period. Columbus has been outscored 58-38 in the third period.

Connolly opened the scoring with 23.5 seconds left in the first. Paquette doubled the lead midway through the third period and Filppula made it 3-0 just 1:41 later.

RETHINKING POT-OHIO

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- A group that wants to legalize marijuana use in Ohio says its investors include NBA Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson.

The group called ResponsibleOhio released a list of some of its backers on Friday.

The group says Robertson signed on because he supports medical marijuana use. Robertson played at the University of Cincinnati before going on to a stellar NBA career with the Cincinnati Royals and Milwaukee Bucks.

The list also includes fashion designer Nanette Lepore and NFL defense end Frostee Rucker, who played for the Arizona Cardinals last season and previously had stints in Cleveland and Cincinnati.

ResponsibleOhio hopes to put its ballot measure before voters this fall. It's one of two legalization campaigns in Ohio despite opposition from all five statewide officeholders.

BALL ST-MIAMI (OHIO)

OXFORD, Ohio (AP) -- Eric Washington scored 15 points to lead four in double figures and Miami (Ohio) edged Ball State 79-73 on Saturday.

Ball State raced out to a 17-6 lead 6 1/2 minutes in thanks for 3-pointers by Francis Kiapway and Zavier Turner and led 38-30 at the break.

Miami (8-13, 3-5 Mid-American) clawed its way back to tie and take the lead on a pair of free throws by Will Sullivan with 8:38 left.

After a few taut minutes, Zach McCormick's 3-pointer with 2:13 left put Miami up 69-68. Matt Kamieniecki responded with a layup to re-take the lead briefly. But Miami reeled off the next seven points and made 5 of 6 free throws down the stretch to seal it.

Will Sullivan had 13 points for the Redhawks, Logan McLane added 11 and Geovonie McKnight chipped in 10. Miami shot 56.5 percent.

Ball State (7-12, 2-6 Mid-American) was paced by 15 points apiece from Franko House and Sean Sellers.

SUPER BOWL

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Forget about Deflategate. Forget about Marshawn Lynch and his lack of talking and forget about Tom Brady's cold.

The time has come to play some football.

The 49th Super Bowl is just underway in Glendale, Arizona, with the AFC Champion Patriots squaring off with the NFC Champion Seahawks.

The league announced about two hours before the game that the roof at the stadium would be open for the contest. The game time temperature is slated to be in the upper 60's with it reaching the 50's during the fourth quarter.

Seattle has won five consecutive playoff games and head coach Pete Carroll is 7-2 in postseason with the Seahawks.

Seattle's Russell Wilson is the youngest quarterback to start two Super Bowls and the first signal-caller to start two Super Bowls in his first three years in the league.

New England coach Bill Belichick (BEHL'-ih-chik) and quarterback Tom Brady are making their sixth Super Bowl appearance. They have won three times. Belichick's 21 postseason victories are the most by any coach in NFL history and Brady's 20 wins are the most by any starting quarterback.

This is the first postseason meeting between the clubs and if this stat means anything, they've split the 18 regular-season games they've played.

AUSTRALIAN OPEN

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) -- Novak Djokovic (NOH'-vak JOH'-kuh-vich) has won his fifth Australian Open title, defeating Andy Murray 7-6, 6-7, 6-3, 6-0 in the final. Djokovic broke open a close match with a service break in the eighth game of the third set, winning four straight points. When he took a 4-0 lead in the final set, he smacked his fist hard against his chest in celebration.

Murray has now been runner-up in the Australian Open four times, losing twice previously to Djokovic in 2011 and 2013 and to Roger Federer in 2010.

Djokovic is a perfect 5-for-5 in Australian Open finals.

T25-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- There were two Top-25 men's basketball games on Super Sunday and in one Florida State upset 23rd-ranked Miami of Florida 55-54. Montay Brandon scored 18 points on 7-of-7 shooting and the Seminoles rallied from a 16-point first-half deficit to beat the Hurricanes. Miami's Sheldon McClellan missed a floater in the lane as time expired. Record wises FSU is now 12-10 while Miami dropped to 14-7.

In the other game Jakob Poeltl had 14 points and nine rebounds as No. 11 Utah crushed Southern California 67-39. The margin of defeat was the biggest of the season for the Trojans. Delon Wright added 11 points and five rebounds for the Utes who are now 17-4 and 7-2 in Pac-12 play. Malik Martin scored 11 points to lead the Trojans who dropped to 9-12 and 1-8 in Pac-12.

NBA-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Miami's Heat put an end to a two-game losing skid with an 83-75 win over the Celtics in Boston. Hassan Whiteside scored half of his 20 points during a dominant stretch spanning the third and fourth quarters to help the Heat to the win. Whiteside also had nine rebounds and blocked three shots, while Chris Bosh added 18 points and Tyler Johnson had 13, helping overcome the absences of Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng (LOO'-ul dehng) who were out because of injuries.

And in New York the Knicks stopped the Lakers 92-80 as Carmelo Anthony scored 18 of his 31 points in the third quarter. Anthony hit 13 of 25 shots from the floor and grabbed eight rebounds.
