It was a heartbreaking loss for the Oklahoma City Thunder [VIDEO] as they were beaten by the Minnesota Timberwolves [VIDEO] on a last second buzzer beater by #Andrew Wiggins.

Oklahoma City's Carmelo Anthony hit a 3-pointer with 5.1 seconds left to give the Thunder the lead before the Timberwolves inbounded to Wiggins, who rushed up the court and got free with help from a crushing pick by Karl-Anthony Towns before pulling up for the victor.

Jamal Crawford scored all 17 of his points off the bench in the fourth quarter Friday night including a 3-pointer with 27 seconds left to clinch it. Karl Anthony-Towns contributed a double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds.

It's the final play that will be remembered most, however, and it was one that could signal to the rest of the NBA's elite that Wiggins has arrived.

But how did Wiggins get so much space? That being said, pulling up on a dime from 30 feet out and using glass is no mean feat. But we're also only three games into the season. Andrew Wiggins had 21 points and five boards. Don't forget, this was at Oklahoma City, one of the toughest places to play in the league.

When Weinstein returned from Paris, he invited her to his residence, which had children's drawings on display, she said. The persistent 65-year-old moviemaker also asked her to join him on a jaunt to Paris to attend couture shows.

CELEBRATION: Wiggins was the hero, but this was a team win. Five T-Wolves finished in double figures.

Wiggins was mobbed by his teammates after hitting the shot. Game time is 7PM EST.

The Thunder didn't look very good Saturday night against the stingy Jazz defense, but return home where they fared very well in their opener versus the Knicks.

Adams converted a three-point play to cut Minnesota's lead to 106-105 with 1:50 to go, and a 3-pointer by Westbrook tied the game at 110.

As was noted last season, this changes nothing. Give the kid credit for rewarding that faith with the biggest shot of his career in a quality Western Conference matchup.
