So why would we dedicate a whole post to a 20 and 13 point performance in a 48 point loss? Because the 2o and 13 were career-highs for TWolves rookies Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine who are showing progress each game.
Here’s Zach’s scoring output over his last 5 games: 0, 4, 5, 8, 13. At this pace he should have a 30 point game around Christmas! I’m kidding about the pace but I do expect some big games coming from Zach and the #1 pick in the near future. Zach’s getting minutes and Wiggins is getting more comfortable.
With all that said, 48 point loss! 67% shooting! 75% from 3!
