Wiggins, Timberwolves face Blazers in Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Minnesota Timberwolves had two players named as reserves to the West team for the NBA All-Star Game on Tuesday, but coach Tim Thibodeau believes he can make a case for a third.

Thibodeau was singing the praises of Andrew Wiggins after his 40-point explosion helped the Timberwolves beat the Los Angeles Clippers 126-118 Monday night.

"Sometimes players get measured statistically," said Thibodeau, whose team visits Portland on Wednesday night to face the Trail Blazers at Moda Center. "When you look at guys who impact winning, (Wiggins') impact has been great. And that's the most important stat there is."
