A remarkable second quarter turnaround
The Warriors scored just 15 points in the first quarter — tied for their lowest scoring output in any quarter all season. However, they turned the tide in the second quarter, going on a 16-5 run that started with 10 straight points. Lester Quinones scored seven points during the run, including the go-ahead 3-pointer, as he found a steady spot in the rotation during this road trip. Despite 10-time All-Star Stephen Curry making two points and zero field goals, the Warriors led by three at halftime (48-45).

Wiggins in attack mode
After missing the last game with an ankle injury, Andrew Wiggins made his presence felt early and often on Wednesday. In the first half, Wiggins was tied for game-highs in scoring (11 points) while leading in field goals made (6) and rebounds (6). While first-time All-Star Tyrese Maxey was the primary defender, he also made an impact on defense with a steal and a block, and he scored just five points in the half.
