IMPACT PLAYER: Andrew Wiggins, Wolves

He only shot 5-for-15 from the floor and scored 17 points, but his 11 rebounds — all on the defensive end — were a career high, and he swiped the ball from Tim Hardaway Jr. for a crucial steal down the stretch.

BY THE NUMBERS

42 Wolves victories, which guarantees their first winning season since 2005.

3 Karl-Anthony Towns’ blocks, including one with 13 seconds left that kept the Knicks away.

15-0 Knicks’ start to the third quarter, which took them from a 57-48 deficit into a 63-57 lead with little more than three minutes gone in the third.
