Andre Iguodala On Playing With Wiggins: “We Had A Common Teammate, Jimmy Butler. Jimmy Had Nothing But Positive Things To Say About Wiggs. He Liked Playing With Wiggs. That Was All I Needed To Hear, To Be Honest, Because Jimmy Doesn't Like Anybody.”

The Golden State Warriors are back to winning ways, currently enjoying a three-game winning streak. The attention has been on Stephen Curry and his three-point record since the start of the season, and now that he has surpassed Ray Allen's record, the team is back to focusing on winning a championship.

The Warriors have a well-balanced team, with players stepping up when their numbers are called. Andrew Wiggins has been one of those players, as he has continued to significantly contribute, even when Steph is having a poor shooting night.

Against the Minnesota Timberwolves, he recorded a season-high 35 points, adding a few highlight reels to go with. He felt good about his dunks on former teammate Karl-Anthony Towns and secured the victory for the Warriors.

At times like that when the Warriors need a spark, Wiggings has continued to step up. The Canadian had another big game last night against the Boston Celtics, registering 27 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists in another win for the Warriors.

Andre Iguodala was asked about Wiggins at the post-game presser and he had nothing but praise for the forward.

"Wiggins ain't been good the last month, Wiggins been good like the last six years in the NBA. The league is the league, and you get on certain situations, and your talent is seen more."

"We had a common teammate — Jimmy Butler. Jimmy had nothing but positive things to say about Wiggs. He liked playing with Wiggs. That was all I needed to hear to be honest because Jimmy doesn't like anybody. So, when Jimmy said he Like Wiggs, I started looking at it different.”

"It's the situation sometimes. I think Wiggs is the all-time Canadian scorer in the NBA."

The 2015 Finals MVP undoubtedly knows talent when he sees one, and is enjoying his reunion with the Warriors. They are legitimate championship contenders, especially with the anticipated return of Klay Thompson and James Wiseman.

Wiggins might lose his starting spot when Klay returns, but he can be counted on to deliver when called upon. He has been huge for the Warriors, and will also be remembered for providing the assist that helped Curry set a new three-point record.
