Andrew Wiggins (Toronto, ON) continues to climb on the Minnesota Timberwolves all-time leading scorers list.

Tonight, in the Timberwolves' close 116-113 loss on the road to the San Antonio Spurs, Wiggins surpassed Sam Mitchell to become the second all-time leading scorer in franchise history.

Wiggins scored 17 points on 7-for-12 shooting from the field and 3-for-5 shooting from deep on the night. He also grabbed five rebounds and dished out one assist. Here is the bucket that put Wiggins to second all-time on Minnesota's scoring list:

The Canada-native now has 7,174 points in his career trailing only Kevin Garnett for the most points ever in a Timberwolves uniform. The catch? Garnett has 19,201 points - 12,027 more points than Wiggins.

It took Wiggins 368 games in five seasons to reach this point on the Timberwolves' all-time scoring list. He's averaged 19.5 points per game over the course of his career and at that pace, it would take Wiggins another 617 games if he wants to catch Garnett.

KG played 14 seasons with the Timberwolves averaging 19.8 points per game. So we're not saying it's impossible for Wiggins to accomplish this feat, it's just going to take a while.

And Garnett said it himself, anything is possible.
