I was nervous

MEMPHIS, Tenn. Ainsley Maitland-Niles Jersey . - Andrew Wiggins of Thornhill, Ont. had six points in just under 19 minutes in his NBA debut as his Minnesota Timberwolves dropped a 105-101 decision to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night. Wiggins, who was picked first overall in June by the Cleveland Cavaliers and then traded to Minnesota as part of the Kevin Love deal, started for the Timberwolves after Kevin Martin was sidelined by an ankle injury. I was nervous, but not crazy nervous, Wiggins said after his debut. I calmed down after the tip. Wiggins was 2-for-5 from the field and made one three-pointer. He also had one assist, three rebounds, and two steals. With Wiggins and 2013 top pick Anthony Bennett, the Timberwolves became the first team in almost 30 years to open the season with the top picks from the previous two drafts. The last time was the 1984-85 season when the Houston Rockets had Hakeem Olajuwon and Ralph Sampson. The win by the hometown Grizzlies marked their first season-opening win since 2000, when the franchise was still located in Vancouver Marc Gasol scored a career-high 32 points for the victors. We didnt talk about it as in like We need this, but moreso like Man, can you believe we havent won since theyve been here? said point guard Mike Conley, who scored 16 points. Its an unbelievable thought. Zach Randolph added 25 points and 13 rebounds for Memphis, which had dropped its last 13 openers. Gasol also had nine rebounds, and Courtney Lee finished with 14 points. That was a good game to start the season, Memphis coach Dave Joerger said. We made some mistakes, but we fought and we fought and we fought. Gasol and Randolph helped Memphis outscore Minnesota 58-34 in the paint, but the Timberwolves outrebounded the Grizzlies 47-33 in their first game since they traded star forward Kevin Love to Cleveland in the off-season. Minnesotas total included 19 offensive boards. Thaddeus Young had 26 points in his first game with the Timberwolves, going 10 for 18 from the field. Mo Williams scored 18 points and Shabazz Muhammad finished with 13. Ricky Rubio had 12 points and seven assists, but also committed seven of Minnesotas 23 turnovers. We have to take care of the ball, especially me, Rubio said. I got maybe too crazy at the end of the third quarter. The Timberwolves used a 9-0 run to take an 87-85 lead in the fourth quarter. Anthony Bennett scored five points and Muhammad had four in the spurt. The game was close for the next couple minutes before Memphis created some space. Gasol made a 21-footer for a 101-96 lead with 1:23 left. In the midst of that key stretch late in the game, there was an out of bounds call in front of the Minnesota bench with 2:20 left that went Memphis way — a decision with which the Timberwolves heartily disagreed. I thought for sure that was off of (Randolph), Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. That was kind of a momentum change because we had the game momentum. The Timberwolves still were within one possession when Vince Carter, signed by Memphis in the off-season, converted two free throws for a 105-101 lead with 7.3 seconds to go. If I cant make the shots, I might as well make the free throws that count, said Carter, who missed six of his seven shot from the field.
