Wiggins, who was picked No. 1 overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers then traded to Minnesota, scored 17 points — his first double-digit effort in four games.

Wiggins played in 37 minutes for the Timberwolves (2-2).

On several of his baskets, Wiggins showed off his incredible athleticism that got national attention since his high school days.
