NBA wrap: Andrew Wiggins leads Timberwolves anew, Warriors start life without All-Stars

Shaquille O’Neal goes wild in mosh pit at Tomorrowland

Andrew Wiggins scored 21 points in the Timberwolves’ 131-109 win over the Wizards.

But he wasn’t the only one that was hot Saturday. Both Robert Covington and Jarrett Culver added 20 points as Minnesota moved to 4-1.

The Timberwolves held a comfortable lead late in the game and a dagger at the end of the third quarter to cement the win.

Bradley Beal scored a team-high 30 points for Washington in its losing efforts, dropping the Wizards to a lowly 1-4.

Studs of the Night

Devin Booker led the Suns to their fourth win of the season, a 114-105 victory over the Grizzlies, behind 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting from the field and a perfect 3-of-3 from 3-point range.

Oklahoma City guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 23 points as the Thunder topped the Pelicans, 115-104.

Both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe were close to double-doubles but it was Antetokounmpo who stole the show with 36 points to help lead the Bucks to a 115-105 win over the reigning champion Raptors.

Duds of the Night

Jordan Poole had just five points on 2-of-9 shooting as the Warriors almost pulled off the win. They ultimately fell 93-87 the Hornets.

The Magic’s second unit was barely productive in their 91-87 loss to the Nuggets. D.J. Augustin had just four points and Mo Bamba had only one.

Highlights

Halloween might be over but the Joker is here to stay.

The “Greek Freak” does it all, obviously.

Move out of Ja Morant’s way.

What’s Next?

Lakers (4-1) at Spurs (4-1), 8 p.m. ET — The Lakers are handling the spotlight well and the Spurs are heating up. They toppled the injury-ridden Warriors on Friday behind Patty Mills’ 31 points off the bench. All-and-all, it will make for an exciting matchup when the two teams meet for the first time this season at the AT&T Center on Sunday.
