MINNEAPOLIS -- Andrew Wiggins: 47.All five Los Angeles Lakers starters: 47.Wiggins hit 14 of 21 shots to blow past his previous career high of 36, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 125-99 victory over the Lakers on Sunday night.Im finding myself, finding things Im good at and things I need to work on, said Wiggins, nine games into his third season in the league. The game has kind of slowed down for me a little bit. Im able to read defenses better now and see how the defense is set.Wiggins hit 17 of 22 free throws and Nemanja Bjelica added a career-high 24 points and eight rebounds for the Timberwolves, who played without starting guard Zach LaVine and reserve forward Shabazz Muhammad. Both missed the game with sore right knees.Lou Williams scored 13 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter for the Lakers, who got 47 points from their starters and 52 from their bench. Julius Randle had 14 points and six rebounds and Jordan Clarkson scored 14.You let a player as good as him get an additional 22 free chances on that, one hes going to score a lot and two hes going to get hot because hes in a rhythm from all the free throws hes shooting, Lakers coach Luke Walton said. We couldnt really contain him tonight.Wiggins was a team-best plus-34 in 41 minutes, and LaVine showered his close friend with Gatorade during his postgame television interview. The Wolves went 13 of 27 from 3-point range, many of them clean shots coming after the defense collapsed on Wiggins.I think hes just scratching the surface, Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau said. I think he can do a lot more.The game featured two of the most promising young cores in the league, with Wiggins, LaVine and Karl-Anthony Towns hoping to end Minnesotas 12-year playoff drought and DAngelo Russell, Randle and Brandon Ingram reviving the Lakers in the post-Kobe era.Entering the season, the Lakers were believed to be a step behind the Wolves in the process, but they won six of their first 10 games while Minnesota got off to a disappointing 2-6 start.Both teams played on Saturday night, but the Wolves were finishing a rare home back-to-back, and appeared to have the fresher legs all night.

The former Euroleague MVP made five 3s and also had three steals and a block.I thought he played a beautiful game tonight, Thibodeau said. He made really good decisions.LAKERS BENCHThe second unit has been a strength for the Lakers all season, averaging 52.1 points per game in the first 10.
