    SAN FRANCISCO — Andrew Wiggins dominated his former Timberwolves teammates with a season-high 35 points, leading the Golden State Warriors to a 123-110 victory over Minnesota on Wednesday night (Thursday, Manila time).

    Anthony Edwards scored a career-high 48 points for Minnesota, hitting seven 3-pointers in the Timberwolves' sixth straight loss.

    Wiggins made his initial 10 shots, scored 22 of his points on 9-for-9 shooting in the first half and delivered an emphatic one-handed dunk over Karl-Anthony Towns after driving the baseline.

    Stephen Curry scored 25 points to go with six assists coming off a 50-point masterpiece Monday night against Atlanta. Jordan Poole had 14 points and five rebounds to help Golden State push its NBA-leading record to 10-1.

    Kevon Looney added season-bests of 11 points and 16 rebound, delivering on both ends on a night Draymond Green exited with a bruised right thigh.

    Edwards' 3-pointer with 5:59 left pulled the Timberwolves to 105-98, and longtime Warriors nemesis Patrick Beverley made it 105-100 before Looney's dunk with 4:04 remaining.

    HOOPS FOR TROOPS

    As part of Warriors Hoops for Troops Week, U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officers Camechie Baker and Syreeta Bromfield had courtside seats and even received a quick visit and hello from Draymond Green before his warmups.

    "It's a life dream right now," Baker said.

    More than seats were donated by season ticket-holders to be used by military members.

    Bromfield played basketball at Green's alma mater Michigan State, so that made it extra special.

    "Its more than a treat," Bromfield said. "Just to be partnering with the Warriors and for the donors to give up their seats for us to be a part of this NBA Hoops for Troops, it's amazing. When would we ever get this opportunity to sit courtside and see a game?"
