Sometimes all it takes is a little revenge to get you moving. That appeared to be the case for Andrew Wiggins, who had his greatest game of the season by far on Wednesday night, helping the Golden State Warriors to a 123-110 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
From the first tip, it was evident that Wiggins was out for blood, whether it was to prove a point to the franchise with which he began his career or simply because it was a fantastic night for a scoring explosion.
Wiggins was only getting started when he scored the Warriors’ first seven points of the game. The scoring prowess continued in the second half, with 22 points on 9-for-9 shooting, including 2-for-2 shooting from the three-point line and the free-throw line.
Wiggins finished with 35 points on 14-for-19 shooting, extending the Warriors’ winning streak to six games, all by double digits.

The heart and soul of the team Draymond Green was in visible pain after he knocked knees with Jaden, he left the game halfway through the third quarter, even though it is not a serious injury but for the safer side, he did not return to the game. Steph Curry did his thing, hitting plenty of crucial shots on route to a 25 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists performance.
2nd year Anthony Edwards was on a whole different level tonight, he led the team in scoring by far with 48 points but did not get enough help from his teammates to close the deal. With Towns just scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds and Diangelo Russel posting 18 points and 7 assists.
