Wiggins totaled 14 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-6 FT), and four rebounds in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 122-104 loss to Houston. Wiggins finished off his season by emphasizing a number of his deficiencies. He has been one of the more disappointing players from a fantasy perspective across the season, making no real progress with his already sub-par defensive abilities. He even said himself that it wasn't the best season and he is going to have to do some work in the off-season if he hopes to increase his value in both reality and fantasy.
Wiggins had 20 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes during Saturday's 121-105 victory over the Rockets. Wiggins was excellent for the Wolves on Saturday, scoring an effective 20 points to go with a season-tying best of five assists. He also managed to connect on 4-of-6 from the perimeter while playing some excellent defense. The Wolves will need more of this is they hope to come up with back-to-back victories and head back to Houston tied 2-2.
Wiggins supplied 13 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes during Minnesota's 102-82 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Wiggins wasn't quite as productive offensively as he'd been in Game 1 while pouring in 18 points, but he once again led the first unit in scoring while also turning in another strong effort on the boards. The former first overall pick has been the one member of the Timberwolves' starting five to turn in performances that somewhat resemble his regular-season efforts, as he's now averaging a solid 15.5 points (on 44.8 percent shooting), 7.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 31.5 minutes over the first two games of the series.
Wiggins generated 18 points (7-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 32 minutes during Minnesota's 104-101 loss to the Rockets in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Wiggins -- as opposed to Karl-Anthony Towns or Jimmy Butler -- was the surprise leader in scoring for the T-Wolves on the night. The team-best point total came as a result of Wiggins also pacing Minnesota in shot attempts, which wasn't a very common occurrence during the regular season when the starting five was at full health. Wiggins' level of involvement was certainly encouraging from a fantasy perspective, but it's likely that both Towns and Butler -- who took a relatively modest 20 shots between them -- up their usage levels in Game 2 on Wednesday.
Wiggins scored 18 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT) to go along with five rebounds and three assists across 42 minutes during Wednesday's 112-106 win over the Nuggets. Wiggins finished fourth on the team in shot attempts and was clearly impacted by Jimmy Butler's expanded workload. He shot the ball efficiently but was only able to reach his season average in scoring due to a lack of volume. Though Wiggins' numbers dropped off across the board during the regular season, he was still a key member of a squad that reached the postseason for the first time in 13 years and will look to take his game to another level in his first taste of postseason action.
