The Golden State Warriors took care of business at home in Game 5 of the 2022 NBA Finals. However, it wasn't a typical Warriors performance. Stephen Curry failed to make a single three-pointer in the game and Golden State's explosive offense produced just 104 points. Nonetheless, the Warriors were led by Andrew Wiggins who scored 26 points and added 13 rebounds.

However, it was Andrew Wiggins' father who was stealing headlines 36 years ago. Mitchell Wiggins scored 16 points and 7 rebounds off the bench for the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of the 1986 NBA Finals against the Celtics. So For Wiggins to accomplish what he did in Game 5 36 years later is incredible.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr has recently expressed how valuable Andrew Wiggins is to the team. For the most part, his defensive effort has been his shining contribution. The ability to contain stars such as Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown has been vital to Golden State's success.

However, Wiggins stepped up on offense for the Warriors on Monday. His 26-point effort was nothing short of crucial with Stephen Curry adding just 16 points. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson helped the cause with 21. But there is no denying the fact that Wiggins was the Game 5 star in San Francisco.

For Wiggins, being able to look back at his father's performance has to be special. He and the Warriors are now just one victory away from an NBA Finals win. A win in Game 6 would be the first ever NBA championship for Andrew Wiggins.

It wouldn't be surprising to see him post another excellent performance in the potential NBA Finals clinching affair.
