Wiggins on the Wolves ties career high, and the Warriors stay undefeated.
by November 10, 2015

Pacers 97 (4-4), Magic 84 (3-5)

Isn’t is nice to have Paul George back and healthy? Here’s to hoping he stays healthy. The Pacers star scored 19 in the first quarter alone and ended the game with 27 points and 7 assists. Evan Fournier was the high scorer for the visiting Orlando Magic with 21 points, two of which came from a nice dunk (that was followed by a hard, face-first fall.)

Bulls 111 (5-3), Sixers 88 (0-7)

Man, Philly… The Bulls rolled into town and took care of business. Nikola Mirotic led Chicago on the road with 20 points and 10 boards, and Pau finished with a near double-double himself of 16 points and 9 boards (not to mention 6 blocks). Rookie Jahlil Okafor finished with 21 points and 15 boards for the 76ers, but it wasn’t enough against the seasoned Bulls.

Timberwolves 117 (4-2), Hawks 107 (7-2)

Andrew. Wiggins. Congratulations on 1) the win, and 2) tying your career high of 33 points! in addition to some beautiful dunks, Wiggins helped Minnesota hang on to win against the Hawks despite blowing a 30-point halftime lead. This and-1 was an important moment for the young Wolves:

Nuggets 108 (3-3), Trail Blazers 104 (4-4)

A tight game between Denver and Portland had JJ Hickson and Emmanuel Mudiay to thank/blame when all was said and done. Hickson scored 19 points and 13 boards, and Mudiay finished with 18 points and 2 blocks that gave Denver the slightest edge, which was good enough for the W at home.

Spurs 106 (4-2), Kings 88 (1-6)

The 2014 NBA Finals MVP finished with 24 points when his team visited Sacramento. Kawhi Leonard…oh mama!

Warriors 109 (8-0), Pistons 95 (5-2)

The NBA Champs are still undefeated. The Splash Bros. combined for 46 points, and well…nice W, Dubs! Business as usual, it seems. On to the next.

Clippers 94 (5-2), Grizzlies 92 (3-5)

…AKA the game that wouldn’t end. With nearly the same numbers across the board as far as biggest lead, total rebounds, and fast breaks go, we weren’t sure who’d walk away with the W in this one. When the clock at last showed 0.0 in the final game of the night, the scoreboard read 94-92, with the home team claiming the win behind Blake Griffin’s 24-point, 12-rebound performance.
