We couldnt really contain him tonight.Wiggins was a team-best plus-34 in 41 minutes, and LaVine showered his close friend with Gatorade during his postgame television interview. The Wolves went 13 of 27 from 3-point range, many of them clean shots coming after the defense collapsed on Wiggins.I think hes just scratching the surface, Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau said. I think he can do a lot more.The game featured two of the most promising young cores in the league, with Wiggins, LaVine and Karl-Anthony Towns hoping to end Minnesotas 12-year playoff drought and DAngelo Russell, Randle and Brandon Ingram reviving the Lakers in the post-Kobe era.Entering the season, the Lakers were believed to be a step behind the Wolves in the process, but they won six of their first 10 games while Minnesota got off to a disappointing 2-6 start.Both teams played on Saturday night, but the Wolves were finishing a rare home back-to-back, and appeared to have the fresher legs all night.

The former Euroleague MVP made five 3s and also had three steals and a block.I thought he played a beautiful game tonight, Thibodeau said. He made really good decisions.LAKERS BENCHThe second unit has been a strength for the Lakers all season, averaging 52.1 points per game in the first 10.

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouris offense was clicking during its first four games of the season.In wins against Eastern Michigan and Delaware State, the Tigers scored 61 and 79 points, seemingly far removed from a year ago, when they averaged about 13 points and ranked second-to-last nationally in offensive efficiency.In its Southeastern Conference opener, Missouri scored 27 points and led 16th-ranked Georgia for much of the second half before surrendering a game-winning touchdown pass on fourth down with a minute remaining. By comparison, in two games against ranked opponents in 2015, Missouri scored a combined 16 points, managing a single touchdown.However, as Missouri (2-4, 0-3 SEC) approaches the thick of its conference schedule, it seems the offense has stalled. The next opportunity to work out the kinks comes Saturday when the Tigers host Middle Tennessee State in the schools 105th annual homecoming celebration.The tempo of Missouris pace and space offense, which had been averaging nearly 83 plays per game, has slowed. The Tigers managed just 64 plays per game in their last two outings, falling 42-7 to LSU on Oct. 1 and 40-14 to No. 18 Florida last Saturday.Missouri has gained 30 first downs in its last 29 drives, with an average time of possession of 1:23. It also punted 18 times and has gone 3-and-out 14 times in that span.Coach Barry Odom stressed the importance of gaining a first down on the initial possession, something the Tigers have failed to do their last two games.Weve got to be better at getting a first down to get the drive going, Odom said. When you talk any tempo teams, the most important thing is getting the first one.Odom isnt the only one concerned.Its very frustrating, Missouri wide receiver Chris Black said of the offensive struggles. A lot of miscues ... Eleven guys have to be doing the right things at one time.Right guard Alec Abeln said he felt the Tigers offensive line took a steep backward from LSU to Florida. Tanner Lee Jersey. Honestly, I wish up front wed be better physically, Abeln said. More physical point of attack, better finishers. We got a couple of big runs and thats great, but we still need to do more up front.Missouri quarterback Drew Lock ranks second in the conference in passing yards per game, second in pass attempts and is tied for second in passing touchdowns with 14. But against Floridas top-ranked pass defense, Lock was just 4 of 18 for 39 yards and two interceptions, both of which were returned for touchdowns. Backup quarterback Marvin Zanders had significant playing time in light of Locks inefficiency, completing 3 of 4 pass attempts for 59 yards while rushing 8 times for 31 yards.Weve got to find a way to get our guys open, Odom said. Once we get into position and the ball is delivered, in a passing offense, youve got to be able to play catch. We didnt do that very well (against Florida.)Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel was displeased with his units performance against Florida.Obviously, weve got to do a better job of getting things started and starting things quickly, Heupel said. I hate saying this, but the truth of the matter is we truly got outcompeted. From snap to whistle, they played harder than we did. They played with more energy than we did. One hundred percent of the time, youre going to lose when that happens, so were taking steps to correct that this week.For the first time this season, neither quarterback was available for comment.I wanted both of them to clear their minds and get prepared for what is needed out of that position moving forward, Odom said.---This story has been corrected to show that the right guards last name is spelled Alec Abeln, not Ablen.---AP college football website: http://collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaWholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
