Andrew Wiggins reveals simple secret to his shooting success with Warriors
The Golden State Warriors are firing on all cylinders this season and currently have the best record in the NBA at 20-4 alongside the Phoenix Suns. While Steph Curry is a huge reason for their success, Andrew Wiggins is also contributing at a high level.
The Canadian is averaging 18.7 points, which is second on the Warriors to only Steph. But the most impressive part is Wiggins’ 41% clip from three-point land, a career-high. When asked why he’s shooting the ball so efficiently, the Dubs forward had a simple response.

On top of that, Wiggins is also draining a career-best 48% of his attempts from the field. To be honest, though, his reasoning makes total sense. The Warriors are extremely productive at moving the ball around and finding good looks, ranking first in the Association with a mind-boggling 29 assists per game. It’s also evident how well they take care of the basketball, committing the second-least turnovers in the league.
As a former first overall pick, there was always a hope that Wiggins could be a number one option somewhere. But, it looks like he’s found a home with the Warriors as one of Curry’s sharpshooting sidekicks. The Dubs will need him to keep showing out as they look to make a title run in 2022.
