Minnesota Timberwolves: Andrew Wiggins Breaks Scoring Record

Andrew Wiggins has been heavily criticized since being drafted, but has recently broke an impressive scoring record.

Wiggins was selected first in the 2014 NBA draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves, and still has yet to prove why he was worth the hype.

However, in last night’s game, Wiggins did break a record that most people did not expect.

Wiggins broke the record for the 11th youngest player ever to reach 8,000 points. Most fans did not even know that Wiggins was on track for this accomplishment.

In this season, Wiggins is averaging 24.5 points per game, 3.1 assists per game, and 1.1 blocks per game, which are all career-highs for the number one draft pick.

Wiggins is also putting forth career-highs in player efficiency rating (19.6), assist rate (15.9 percent), block rate (2.6 percent), offensive box plus/minus (1.9) and overall box plus/minus (0.2), per source.

Wiggins has taken a while to show improvement, but he is certainly showing it now, giving Timberwolves fans a reason to be excited.
