NEWS

Covers Preview - The Minnesota Timberwolves are expecting Andrew Wiggins to develop into a difference maker but the No. 1 overall pick in June’s draft is definitely experiencing growing pains. Wiggins is averaging seven points on 5-of-19 shooting over the past two games as Minnesota’s losing streak extended to four games entering Sunday’s matchup with the visiting Indiana Pacers. The Pacers have lost 10 of their last 11 games after falling 76-73 to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.
