The statement released by Miami-based attorney Ivlis Mantilla from Jasmine Reed reads: “This incident has been totally blown out of proportion. I did not call the police and I did not ask anyone to call the police on my behalf. Willie is a good man and a great father. I have no intention of pressing charges and I have asked the authorities to immediately dismiss all charges against Willie. This is a private matter between my husband and I and for the sake of our family I would like to keep it that way.”

Using a hard screen on the sideline set by Towns on Paul George to get free, Wiggins crossed midcourt and let fly on a running jumper as the buzzer sounding. As Paul Pierce once said, Wiggins didn’t call bank; he called game as the Wolves stunned the Thunder, 115-113. “Everyone was scrambling.

And we have more experience too.”
