NBA -- Wolves maul Lakers behind Wiggins' 47 points


PhilBoxing.com




MINNEAPOLIS - Andrew Wiggins ​poured 47 points on Sunday night and the Minnesota Timberwolves scored an easy 125-99 decision over the visiting Los Angeles Lakers at the Target Center.

Wiggins waxed hot early, scoring 13 in the opening quarter as the Wolves raced to a ​36-27 lead. He added 12 more in the second quarter and Minnesota increased its lead to 69-46. Wiggins' 47-point outburst matched the total points scored by the entire Lakers starters combined.

"I just tried to be ​aggressive. ​ We have to have that mindset that whoever comes in our house can't win and it has to be the hardest place to play" said Wiggins during ​his ​post game interview.​"​

Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau told Wiggins before tip off to be more aggressive because ​three​ players were out​ ​due to injury ​--- ​Zach LaVine (sore right knee), Brandon Rush (sprained right big toe) and Shabazz Muhammad (sore right knee).

Thibodeau inserted 6​-foot-​10 Nemanja Bjelica for the first time in the starting lineup as small forward and Wiggins moved to shooting guard in lieu of LaVine.

Bjelica​,​ the European League's MVP​,​ was very productive​ and went​​​ 5-for-8 beyond the arc and 9-for-15 in the field. He tallied 24 points and 8 boards.

Karl-Anthony ​"Katman" ​Towns ​recorded ​his 5th double-double of the season ​with ​22 points ​and​ 12 ​boards​.​ ​Timberwolf point guard Ricky Rubio returned from a five-game absence and delivered 10 points. Adrian Payne also had 10 off the bench​.

Lou Williams ​paced the Lakers ​with 17 while Julius Randle added 14. Nick Young finished with 9..

Filipino-American Jordan Clarkson ​netted 14 points​ to go with his three boards. He played for 22 minutes and went 6-for-10 from the field.

​"Hi Cebu! Hi Philippines hello everybody see you all soon," Clarkson ​told PhilBoxing.com.

​AND 1 ​

The Timberwolves will host the Charlotte Hornets ​on Tuesday night (Wednesday AM in Manila). The Lakers will also be home Tuesday night, hosting the Brooklyn Nets at Staples Center. ​
