The Minnesota Timberwolves gave Andrew Wiggins his chances Wednesday. With James Harden guarding him the Timberwolves isolated Wiggins on the wing or in the post and let him go right at Harden one-on-one — and predictably that led to some good things for Minnesota. There were dunks.
But Dwight Howard was there to clean up some messes, too.
Wiggins got to see first hand what a former Defensive Player of the Year can do (and why sometimes you may want to dump that one off to Nikolas Pekovic). Howard had four blocks on the night and the Rockets picked up a comfortable 113-101 win.
