Andrew Wiggins powers Timberwolves to victory in Ryan Saunders' coaching debut


Minutes before, Thunder reserve Nerlens Noel had been carted off the floor after hitting his head on the court trying to stop another Andrew Wiggins drive.


Saunders, making his NBA head coaching debut, asked if Jones was ready to play the final 16 minutes.


He had 10 rebounds and four assists, including a pass to Josh Okogie in the corner for a three-pointer that put the Wolves up by four with 27.8 seconds left to play.


The way Ryan Saunders, wearing a Flip pin on his lapel, held his notes, clutched in a roll, in his hand.


After the Teague ejection, Jones had a three-point play and the Wolves were off on a run that would build a nine-point lead on Tolliver’s three-pointer with 7:40 left in the game.


With 21 seconds left Westbrook hit two free throws, then Jones was whistled for traveling when trapped on the inbounds pass.
