The Warriors wanted any individual to step up in Game 5 with Stephen Curry struggling from the sphere. The two-time NBA MVP performed with 16 aspects on 7-of-22 shooting (0-of-9 from three-level vary). Or now not it is a ways the predominant time that Curry hasn’t made a three in a sport since Nov. 8, 2018.
Wiggins offered the spark that Golden Tell wanted to employ a 3-2 sequence lead. The 27-year-used performed with a team-high 27 aspects (10 in the fourth quarter) and 13 rebounds in 43 minutes.
Right here’s the second straight sport that Wiggins has posted a double-double. He had 17 aspects and a profession-high 16 rebounds in Game 4 to encourage the Warriors assemble a 107-97 dangle to even the sequence.
Wiggins will look to proceed his upward trajectory in Game 6 on Thursday at TD Garden. The Warriors can shut out the sequence and employ their fourth NBA title in the previous eight seasons with one extra dangle.
