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.

"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.
