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.

NFL-AWARDS

PHOENIX (AP) -- The NFL is holding its awards show on the eve of the Super Bowl in Arizona.

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray captured The Associated Press NFL Offensive Player Of The Year award after leading the league with 1,845 rushing yards, nearly 500 more than any other player. Murray topped the NFL with 2,261 yards from scrimmage and scored 13 touchdowns for the NFC East champs.

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. beat out Dallas guard Zack Martin to win the AP's Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Beckham tied Michael Irvin's NFL mark with nine consecutive games of 90 yards receiving and finished with 91 receptions for 1,305 yards and 12 TDs.

Arizona's Bruce Arians is the AP's Coach of the Year for the second time in three years after guiding the Cardinals to an 11-5 record. Arians also won the award in 2012 after stepping in for the ailing Chuck Pagano at Indianapolis.

Todd Bowles is the recipient of the inaugural AP Assistant Coach Of The Year award. Bowles guided Arizona's defense this season before being named head coach of the Jets.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Super Bowl is almost here. The big game takes place Sunday in Glendale, Arizona, with the defending champion Seahawks facing the Patriots. Seattle is trying to become the first team since New England in 2004 and 2005 to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

A shortage of tickets made available to brokers on the secondary market has driven prices into five figures even for nosebleed seats.

As of midday Saturday the NFL Ticket Exchange, the league's official ticket re-sale website, didn't have tickets for less than $9,000. The cheapest ticket on StubHub was nearly the same. One listing on Craigslist in Phoenix was selling tickets for $8,000 each with the seller willing to meet the buyer at their bank to complete the transaction.

NHL-SCORES

UNDATED (AP) -- The Montreal Canadiens and Detroit Red Wings are currently in a virtual tie for first place in the NHL's Eastern Conference, although that will change if Tampa Bay wins at home against Columbus later today.

Carey Price posted his second straight 1-0 shutout victory as the Canadiens downed Washington in overtime. Price made 17 of his 36 saves in the second period for his fourth shutout of the season and 29th of his career. Max Pacioretty (pash-uh-RET'-ee) scored 3:08 into overtime for his second consecutive game-winning goal, one reason why the Habs have won five in a row.

The Red Wings stayed even with Montreal by beating the New York Islanders 4-1. Tomas Tatar (tah-TAHR') and Gustav Nyquist scored power-play goals to back Petr Mrazek (muh-RAH'-zehk), who handled 22 shots in Detroit's seventh victory in eight games.
