Andrew Wiggins Scores Career High 29 Points

Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Andrew Wiggins had his best game of his young career in a 113-101 loss to the visiting Sacramento Kings. Scoring 29 points (on 9-for-22 shooting) and grabs 5 rebounds. Per the Star Tribune:

“I feel comfortable,” said Wiggins, whose three-point shot midway through the fourth quarter pulled the Wolves within five. “It’s a learning process.”

His coach liked what he saw:

“He played well,” Saunders said. “He showed good energy. I don’t want to say it was a coming-out party, but I think we saw some things that we expect out of him. We force-fed him a little bit. But he took initiative.”

And Boogie did too:

“Man, I like Wiggins,” ­Cousins said. “I told him at the end of the game he’s going to be a special player. And I like Anthony Bennett as well. … The Timberwolves got two special players. I like the young boy Zach [LaVine] as well. They’ve got a nice young core. They’re going to be something special.”
