Andrew Wiggins’ motivation behind career night vs. Celtics

Andrew Wiggins sure picked a great time to come out with one of the best performances of his entire career. On Friday night, the all-star forward led the entire game in rebounds after amassing a career-high 16 boards for the Golden State Warriors. There is no doubt that Wiggins’ activity on the glass was a major contributor to the Dubs’ 107-97 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

After the game, Wiggins revealed the simple motivation that led to his career night. The Warriors star didn’t overcomplicate things:

“I want to win,” Wiggins said of The Athletic’s Anthony Slater. “I know rebounding is a big part of that. I just want to win.”

His strong play allowed the Warriors to walk away with a crucial win at TD Garden, leveling the series 2-2. Wiggins knew what was at stake for his team in this game as a 3-1 draw in the series just wasn’t acceptable.

Game 5 now moves back to the Golden State and you can be sure that the rapturous home crowd will give the former Rookie of the Year a hero’s welcome.
