The Timberwolves closed a 12-point deficit down to 2 points against the Clippers in the third. How? A combined 19 points from Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins in the quarter.

Andrew Han ESPN Writer 

If you have a +12.1 net rating differential, and shooting 52.4 percent from the field, you'd like to think you're up by more than 3 points. But that's where the Timberwolves are through one quarter. The good news (if you're Minnesota) is Andrew Wiggins is scoring and getting to the line with ease.
