DeRozan leads Spurs past Wolves 112-108; Butler scores 23

SAN ANTONIO (AP) DeMar DeRozan responded to a trade he didn't want with his usual boundless energy and fearless style in the fourth quarter for San Antonio. Jimmy Butler hasn't received a trade he's requested, and turned in a similar performance for Minnesota.

DeRozan had 28 points in his San Antonio debut, LaMarcus Aldridge added 21 points and 19 rebounds and the Spurs overcame a 23-point performance by Butler in a 112-108 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday night in a matchup of teams coming off a tumultuous offseason.

"It was an extremely long summer for me, extremely long summer," DeRozan said. "So, just to be in this moment, it feels good."
