Down by one with 3.6 seconds left in regulation, Andrew Wiggins got the ball against PJ Tucker, stumbled on a drive, kept control of the ball, stepped back and drained the first game-winner of his career.

“My mind was made up once I got the ball. I was going to shoot it,” Said Wiggins, who had a game-high 31 points in the win. “I got to my spot. I knew the pull-up would be there.”

After a 3 for 8 shooting performance in a loss to the Spurs last week, Wiggins has scored 27, 24 and 31 points and all three came in wins.
