Wiggins' huge 3 propels Wolves to win in Charlotte

Andrew Wiggins hit a pull-up 3-pointer from 31 feet out to force overtime.

The Wolves pulled off quite the comeback Saturday night in Charlotte. Minnesota entered the fourth quarter trailing by 10 points before storming back for a 125-120 overtime victory.

And it was clutch 3-point shooting that made it all possible as Zach LaVine, Ricky Rubio and Andrew Wiggins drilled threes in the final minute. Wiggins hit his game-tying shot from 31-feet.

All-in-all, Wiggins finished with 29 points on 11 of 20 shooting. Karl-Anthony Towns added 25 points and pulled down 15 rebounds too.

The win snaps Minnesota's four-game losing streak and the Wolves are now 6-14 on the season.
