Andrew Wiggins came to play against his former team tonight, scoring 22 first half points without missing a shot, including a ferocious slam over KAT. Stephen Curry has yet another 20+ point game for the season as his run continues. However, with Draymond out, the Warriors don’t have a leader on the floor.

Anthony Edwards is hot all night as he has tallied 33 points in three quarters of play. D’Angelo Russell has just 4 points at the half. However, his four three pointers in the third quarter helped Timberwolves back in the game. They managed to cut the 20 point lead to just 9 by the end of the third quarter. This was all possible due to the absence of Draymond.

While he doesn’t fill the stat sheet, Green is their leader on the floor. His defensive presence is the turning point. Now, he is yet to return from the locker room for the fourth quarter.
