Wiggins' heave banks in, leads Timberwolves past Thunder

Steven Adams double-double not enough as OKC Thunder slump to second-straight defeat

Wiggins banked in a three-point shot from just inside half-court as time expired Sunday night to lift the Timberwolves to a 115-113 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Andrew Wiggins was suddenly asked if he had called glass upon releasing his shot, which he humbly admitted he didn't, only to get his Timberwolves teammate Karl-Anthony Towns add on to that in the most savage way possible.

Coming off one of his worst shooting performances in a loss to the Utah Jazz, Russell Westbrook shook off a slow start Sunday night to score 31 points, hand out 10 assists and almost help the Thunder come back from a dismal start.

Adams certainly played his part for the Thunder, finishing with a double-double of 17 points and 13 rebounds in 35 minutes on court.

Adams was instrumental in the first half, scoring 14 points on 7-of-8 shooting. The Timberwolves fought off several bursts by the Thunder and led 88-75 at the end of the third quarter. Oklahoma City continued the surge and got the crowd back into the game.

Anthony finished with 23 points, including his basket with five seconds left, as the Thunder (1-2) took their second consecutive loss.

Mnnesota is 1-1 on the season after a 100-97 home win Friday night over the Jazz.

It's the final play that will be remembered most, however, and it was one that could signal to the rest of the NBA's elite that Wiggins has arrived. In addition to extending Wiggins, the club acquired Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson via free agency and completed a deal with the Chicago Bulls to acquire Jimmy Butler, giving the starting five a sizeable overhaul.

The Timberwolves made the initial push and scored a double-digit lead against the Thunder. G Raymond Felton had his best game as a Thunder player, scoring 12 points.
