Andrew Wiggins

Cavaliers 100 (8-1), Hornets 93 (6-3)

Charlotte held a 72-71 lead heading into the fourth quarter, but the Cavs rallied behind LeBron (11 points, 5 assists in the final period) to secure the 100-93 victory. Channing Frye had the hot hand from deep, dropping six treys and scoring 20 total points off the bench. The Hornets got 21 from Kemba and one Shaqtin moment from Spencer Hawes:

Timberwolves 125 (3-6), Lakers 99 (6-5)

It was the Andrew Wiggins show in Minnesota tonight. The young fella dropped a career-high 47 points (14/21 from the field), which equaled the entire Lakers starting lineup. Nemanja Bjelica pitched in a career-high 24 points as well.

Magic 119 (4-6), Thunder 117 (6-4)

It was quite a return to Oklahoma City for Serge Ibaka. The big man recorded a career-high 31 points and drilled the game-winning jumper with .4 seconds remaining:

Westbrook did his thing in the loss, posting another monster triple-double – 41 points, 16 assists, 12 rebounds.

Warriors 133 (8-2), Suns 120 (3-8)

Durant, Curry, and Klay Thompson combined for 89 points (29, 30, 30 respectively) in this one, as Golden State shot a scorching 48.5% from three (16/33). TJ Warren and Eric Bledsoe had 20 each for the Suns.

Trail Blazers 112 (7-4), Nuggets 105 (3-7)

Another game, another gem from Damian Lillard. The rising superstar had 32 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists to lead his Trail Blazers to a victory. Denver rookie Jamal Murray had probably his best game so far, scoring 19 points on 6/12 shooting.
