To close Monday’s 102-95 victory over the Cavs, Tom Thibodeau kept Andrew Wiggins on the bench, while playing Derrick Rose instead, but this was not related to poor play.
“Wig will be out there most of the time,” Thibodeau said. “It’s just [the Cavs] were playing zone and I wanted more dribble penetration, it was just the way the game was unfolding.” Wiggins is still averaging 32.8 minutes for the season but he responded to his 0-for-12 showing against the Bulls on Saturday with a 4-of-11 performance on Monday. His scoring and percentages are down compared to last season but he is averaging 1.6 steals and shooting 76.3 from the free throw line, currently returning top-110 value in 9-cat leagues.
