The Timberwolves fell to the Mavericks, but Wiggins finished the contest with 26 points and three made 3s, giving him 468 3-pointers for his career.
It took Wiggins 417 games and 1,397 3-point attempts - also the most in franchise history - to achieve this feat. He is shooting 33.3% from beyond the arc for his career, but has improved upon that shooting 34.5% from beyond the arc this season on a career-high 2.3 3s per game.
Right on his tail for most 3-pointers in franchise history, aside from the retired Anthony Peeler, is 24-year-old teammate Karl-Anthony Towns, who is climbing the charts quickly.
In just four-plus seasons with the Timberwolves, Towns has already knocked down 460 3-pointers. He's done so on only 1,120 attempts, shooting 41.1% from beyond the arc for his young career. This season, he's hitting 3.7 3s per game on 42.7% shooting from 3-point range - both of which are career-highs.
Towns is gaining fast but for the time-being, Wiggins sits atop the franchise's 3-point leader board.
