The Canadian forward went all out, putting up a team-high 26 points, 13 rebounds, and 2 assists.
On a team featuring Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, Wiggins was still the most important guy on the floor in Game 5.
It was a huge moment for the young star and other players within the league were taking note.
Andrew Wiggins future warrior legend

Kyle Kuzma of the Washington Wizards was definitely aware of Wiggins’ performance.
He took to Twitter to celebrate, stating simply: “Andrew Wiggins future warrior legend.”
After Monday night there is every reason to believe that Kuzma could be right: Wiggins might be a legend in the making.
The Wiggins Way
Fans of Wiggins have been praising him since he joined the league back in 2014.
He had a great start to his career.
In fact, he ended up winning Rookie of the Year for the 2014-15 season when he was still with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
When he was traded to the Warriors, people were wondering what his future would look like.
He has had some great moments but he has never shined as some people expected.
That wasn’t the case on Monday night: He was playing like the former first overall pick that he is.
Wiggins is yet another example of what makes the Warriors so dangerous.
The team has a couple of the best shooters in the league but it’s not always them that take the squad across the finish line.
The roster is incredibly deep and there are multiple guys – like Wiggins – who might step up on any given night.
Wiggins had a wonderful, huge evening on Monday.
And now he has helped his team get just one victory away from winning another ring.
