Stephen Curry is the Golden State Warriors man on the hunt for the all-time NBA 3-point record, but the one who left a mark from the perimeter to start the week was Andrew Wiggins . Canadian Warriors swingman was brilliant with the outside shot and achieved personal best of his career from the triple in the Golden State win over Orlando Magic by 126-95 .
Wiggins had 28 points : attempted 10 triples and eight of them were in the ring and leaving what had been his best number as triplero, a game of triples seven of the 27 January 2020 with Minnesota Timberwolves , a few days before being transferred to Golden State. The franchise that by definition has made history since triple had to be his home to overcome that.
In addition to his 28 points, Wiggins gave 3 assists and 3 rebounds: he missed practically every shot on which he crossed the line but did not forgive from the outside, missing the first shot, then he scored five in a row and it was in that stretch that Golden State began to define the match, obtaining a 65-44 advantage at halftime.
Wiggins wasn’t the only Warriors who was on fire from the outside: Curry continues to discount Ray Allen in long strides. Steph finished with 31 points, 8 assists and 3 rebounds in this game with a 7-13 mark from the perimeter, including a spectacular shot from the middle of the court.

They added 20 triples among all Golden State players in 40 attempts : from there came the destruction of the team with the best record in the NBA along with Phoenix Suns (20-4 record for both) to the second worst so far, this Orlando of 5-20 who only won one of the last 10 games he played.
Juan Toscano-Anderson , the representative of Mexico in the best league in the world, had 13 minutes from the bench in which he added 4 points, 2 rebounds, a block and an assist .
