The team’s forward was prepared for the big game and came out swinging, having one of the best and biggest nights of his young career so far.
In the end, he put up 26 points, 13 rebounds, and 2 assists – helping the Warriors overcome the Boston Celtics and take a 3-2 series.
Thanks to Wiggins, Golden State is just 48 minutes away from being champions yet again.
Wait a second: Is it possible Andrew Wiggins is going to pull a 2015 Iggy and win Finals MVP out from under Steph?

This led Skip Bayless to ask a big, appropriate question: Is it possible Wiggins is going to do what Andre Iguodala did back in 2015 and steal the Finals MVP trophy out from under Steph Curry?
It doesn’t really sound that wild or hard to believe after watching him play on Monday night.
Curry didn’t have a horrible night on Monday but he wasn’t playing as his usual self.
He ended the evening with 16 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists.
He also didn’t score a single three-pointer after going for nine of them.
That’s the first time in years that he didn’t sink a shot from downtown.
Wiggins, on the other hand, stepped up when Curry was having an off night.
He was all over the court and leading his team and really performing like the captain of his squad.
No, he also didn’t score any three-pointers but that’s not his strong suit.
Instead, he was an offensive and defensive powerhouse and the team’s key to stopping Boston’s defense.
Fans of Golden State have been falling in love with Wiggins since he joined the team.
Monday night was his biggest moment with the team yet – and they fell head over heels for him because of it.
