Flip on Wiggins: "I don't want to say it was a coming-out party, but I think we saw some things that we expect out of him."
Cousins: "I like Wiggins. I told him at the end of the game, he’s going to be a special player, and I like Anthony bennett as well."
Wiggins is dog tired but going hard to the end, defending that inbounds pass. I nice step forward
Now might be a good time to remind folks that the Wolves chose Wes Johnson over DeMarcus Cousins, who has 31 and 18.
Not over yet: Wiggins hits a 3 (career-high 25) and Wolves trail Kings 95-90 with 5:36 to go
Budinger with 11 on 3-6, 2-2 3s. It's been a struggle for him this year, but showing up tonight offensively
LaVine bails Williams out again with a foul on a jumper. Flip: "What is he doing?"
Wolves got by with that zone while McLemore was Thrift Store shopping (broke). Now the ceiling can't hold him and Wolves are in trouble.
McLemore couldn't buy a 3 in the 1st half, but he got three straight dunks to get himself going and just knocked 1 down from the corner
The lion is out of the ... Sorry. I cant
Looks like Wiggins will finally get a breather after 19 straight minutes. 9 points, 3 rebs, finished the shift with 2 steals and an assist.
Wiggins has played 18 straight minutes to start the game, and counting.
Shabazz with 2 rim-rattlers to whip this crowd into a frenzy
Cousins with 8 points, 6 rebs, 2 assists and some veteran-level agitation of Bennett, who has 2 fouls
Malone said opponents have been targeting Stauskas on defensive end, Brewer just posted him for an easy layup
Mo Williams with 5 assists in the first 8 minutes. Wolves did not move the ball last night. Kings started 5-14, as Malone feared.
Boogie the Point Guard didn't quite work out as well as it probably did in his head.
23 seconds into the game, Dieng picks up a foul on Cousins. Flip really concerned about Kings' ability to draw fouls
Bennett starting means Wolves 2nd unit gets even smaller. I didn't know that was possible, but here we are
Anthony Bennett getting the start tonight for Wolves coming off that nice game last night.
Mike Malone said tonight is scariest game of Kings 4-game trip. Young team sees wolves missing 4 starters. He's concerned
Surprised Mollie went w/ Allen. But have heard good things. Just was told by a few that previous MLB coaching experience was huge deal.
One of first guys on the floor for SAC pregame warmups: DeMarcus Cousins
Impressive comeback from the Gophers. Wasn't sure they could comeback from 14 down. Win and they're in.
Wow. Brutal call
I don't think Pop took any joy in hammering a weakened Wolves team. Coaching fraternity means a lot to him. Could tell he was conflicted
Spurs still looking for that beautiful game they played in the playoffs last season. No need for it tonight. Pop: "It wasn't a fair fight."
Popovich: "it wasn't a fair fight."
That's a career-high 20 points for Anthony Bennett
LaVine is just frantic out there. Kid needs to take a deep breath. Happens to lots of rooks
Wiggins has 9 of his 14 points here in 3rd qtr, but Wolves trail Spurs 81-59
Nine straight for Wiggins. Asserting himself now.
Here comes your daily Wiggins 3rd quarter flurry
Muhammad (1-7, 1 reb) finding the going against Diaw, Leonard slightly tougher than Travis Wear.
Spurs G Cory Joseph diagnosed with ankle sprain at halftime, will not return
Cory Joseph will not return with a sore left ankle. Spurs short-handed at PG.
