DENVER (AP) — Andrew Wiggins scored a career-high 31 points and Robbie Hummel had two big tip-in baskets in the fourth quarter, helping the Minnesota Timberwolves hold off the Denver Nuggets 113-105 on Saturday night.
The rookie out of Kansas was 11 of 17 from the floor, including four 3-pointers, as Minnesota improved to 4-16 on the road this season.
Hummel finished with 15 points and 13 rebounds, while Thaddeus Young added 22 points.
The Timberwolves hardly looked weary down the stretch in the thin air of the Mile High City despite losing the night before in Phoenix. They’re now 2-7 on the second night of a back-to-back.
Ty Lawson led Denver with 22 points. The Nuggets lost the night before in Dallas to snap a five-game win streak.
