Video: Andrew Wiggins Calls Dennis Schroder "Gay" In Postgame Interview
Some observers thought Wiggins had said Schroder was "just gay" rather than "just getting", so the Minnesota forward tried clarified after the game, noting that he has the "utmost love and respect for the LGBTQIA community".
Wolves players said not too much was different for them schematically in their first game without Tom Thibodeau, who was sacked as head coach on Sunday, but Wiggins played perhaps the best game of his career, scoring 40 points, going 16-of-18 from the free throw line and adding 10 rebounds.
"It's unbelievable how they stayed connected throughout the whole game", he told The Associated Press. To make matters wore, Noel's head bounced off the floor, leading to him laying there for a few minutes while a stretcher was brought out.
He was then taken to the Oklahoma University medical center where he was kept under evaluation overnight.
Schroder took issue with the Timberwolves when a number of players appeared to be laughing while Thunder center Nerlens Noel lay motionless on the floor from a scary fall. "He was acting insane for no reason", Wiggins appeared to say. Schroder later got into a shoving match with Minnesota point guard and former Atlanta Hawks teammate Jeff Teague that resulted in an ejection. The play was reviewed, and no additional fouls were called. I think he fell wrong but I didn't really see until I saw him on the ground. Hopefully he's good. I hope nothing but the best for him. A foul was called on Noel. Westbrook added 25 points and 16 assists while Steven Adams scored 20.
Josh Okogie's corner 3-pointer with 26.8 seconds left put the Timberwolves up 119-115.
