Golden State Warriors swingman Andrew Wiggins had a slow start to the season to say the least, with disappointing outings in their first three games of the year. He finally had a breakout performance in their most recent tilt against the Detroit Pistons where he bannered the team's offensive attack. Wiggins unleashes an array of effective mid-range jumpers and stepback 3s during the game.
The former Kansas standout eventually commented that the team is continuously improving as they spend more time together on the floor, per Connor Letourneau.
Andrew Wiggins: "We're getting better every game. … The chemistry's building."

After a back-and-forth affair in the first three-quarters of the game, the Dubs finally stepped on the gas pedal in the final frame to run away with a 116-106 victory. Stephen Curry led the team once again with 31 points on 5-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc along with five rebounds and six assists.
He finally received much-needed support in the form of Wiggins who emerged as a bright spot for the team with his 27 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. The duo's collaborative effort was able to counter a huge performance from Pistons forward Jerami Grant who came out with 27 points and seven rebounds en route to securing a 116-106 victory for their second win of the season.
After the game, Wiggins was asked whether it was his best performance with the Warriors since he came over to the team last season:
“I would say so,” he responded via The Athletic.
The Warriors will aim to carry over their momentum as they face the Portland Trail Blazers on New Year's Day for their fifth game of the season.
