Publish date:

Andrew Wiggins probably won the battle here, but Jabari Parker won the war.

Only one of them is making Sportscenter's Top 10 though.

Wiggins – the Timberwolves rookie drafted No. 1 overall this summer – went up against Parker – the No. 2 overall selection – in Wednesday night's 103-86 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

While the Wolves took the loss, Wiggins came up with a huge, highlight block on Parker with just under 3 minutes left in the third quarter. This hasn't been confirmed, but we believe the ball ended up landing across the border into Wisconsin.

When asked about their relationship, Parker had this to say.

Besides the block, how'd the two highly-touted rookies do?

Parker played 36 minutes, scoring 11 points on 5-of-12 shooting. He pulled down seven rebounds, had three assists, a block, a steal and no turnovers.

Wiggins meanwhile put in 14 points while shooting 4-of-14. He had eight boards, four assists, a steal and two blocks – with six turnovers.

So, who had the better night?

The Timberwolves have Thursday off, but play at the LA Lakers Friday night, 9:30 p.m. CST.
