Wiggins Pops Another 40
Denver, CO — Andrew Wiggins continued his torrid stretch with 40 points, his fourth 40-point game of the season, to lead Minnesota to a 112-99 win over the Denver Nuggets in Denver.
Wiggins followed up his 41-point performance against Cleveland on Tuesday with another great game. He has now scored 20 or more points in 15 straight games. He is the first player in franchise history to have four games of 40 or more points and is averaging 28.9 points in February. The last player to post back-to-back 40s? Kevin Love.
Karl-Anthony Towns had 24 points and a season-high 19 rebounds for Minnesota.
Minnesota held the Nuggets to just 39 points in the second half in what became only the second home loss in Denver’s last 10 home games.
Nice way to end the first half of the season, now it’s the All-Star break. Next game for the Wolves is February 24 at Target Center against Dallas.
