Karl-Anthony Towns got away with an illegal screen on Andrew Wiggins game-winner

The Thunder and Timberwolves gave us a very early candidate for Game of the Year on Sunday night when the two Western Conference contenders went toe-to-toe in a thrilling 115-113 final as Minnesota edged out a win on the road.

Andrew Wiggins was suddenly asked if he had called glass upon releasing his shot, which he humbly admitted he didn't, only to get his Timberwolves teammate Karl-Anthony Towns add on to that in the most savage way possible.

It is the second game in a row the Timberwolves have been involved in a tight game following their win over the Utah Jazz last night. The visitors shot in the overall 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from the three-point range and 83 percent from the free throw line.

E'Twaun Moore added 19 points, and Jrue Holiday and Ian Clark contributed 14 points apiece for the Pelicans.

Just as the Thunder fans started to celebrate, Wiggins broke their hearts in Oklahoma City.

Wiggins finished with 27 points, 12 coming in the fourth quarter.

The Timberwolves kept their lead in the third quarter as they finished the period 27-21 and increased the difference to double-digits of 13 points. Carmelo Anthony and the OCT thought they already won the game with just five seconds left for the opponent to score back. He banked in a three as time expired and the Timberwolves came away with the victory. Towns also grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds. Wiggins also had seven rebounds and four assists. He shot only 29 percent from beyond the arc but banking in his last three-pointer with less than five seconds left made him the hero for his team to outscore the October.

Wiggins was mobbed by his teammates after hitting the shot.
