On the contrary, this marked the Timberwolves’ sixth consecutive defeat, allowing the 20-year-old Anthony Edwards to score a game-high 48 points.
“Andrew is really great. He was aggressive from the start of the game and liked his energy. Obviously, he was very excited about playing against his old club,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Wiggins. , Wiggins’ performance includes two dunks over former teammate Karl Anthony Town.
“We need everything he brings us tonight: scoring, running, free throws, three-pointers. I think he is great.”
However, the Warriors’ victory in the third quarter was impaired by the loss of star forward Draymond Green due to a thigh injury and unable to return to the court.
“It’s too bad, he’s a little bit cold now, now I’ll say he has a problem on Friday [against the Chicago Bulls],” Kerr said.
The Timberwolves trailed by 20 points in the second quarter, but rebounded when they defeated the Warriors 30-24 in the third quarter.
However, because Kevin Rooney’s double-double contribution of 11 points and 17 rebounds helped the Warriors expand their lead in the final stage, the comeback is short-lived.
The Warriors will seek to improve their record of leading the league when they host the Chicago Bulls on Friday, while the Wolves will head to Los Angeles to face the Lakers.
