Andrew Wiggins scores 30 on 20th birthday

It was a bittersweet birthday for 20-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins.

Despite his team's 113-102 loss to the Houston Rockets on Feb. 23, the Canadian basketball phenom scored a team-leading 30 points. 

Wiggins has only scored more points than that in two games this season. The fact that he did it on his 20th birthday is also a rarity. 

He can score, but he can also defend, as he proved by blocking James Harden before running the floor for a dunk. Harden was the only player on the court to score more points, ending a similarly dominant night with 31.  

Last year's No. 1 draft pick may not be able to legally drink in Minnesota, but he's definitely demonstrating that he deserves his spot there.
