Watch how Wiggins made life hard on Middleton, got last laugh

If you didn't see the Warriors' game vs the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night, you might look at the box score and say to yourself: "Khris Middleton absolutely dominated Andrew Wiggins."

Middleton finished with 28 points (10-for-19 from the field) and seven assists. Wiggins scored just nine points on 4-for-15 shooting.

But the Golden State forward went 3-for-4 in the fourth quarter, while the Milwaukee forward went 0-for-4 with two turnovers.

And Wiggins came through in the clutch by blocking Middleton's potential game-winning 3-pointer in the closing seconds.

"It wasn't his night offensively, but he really battled and got the huge block at the end of the game," Steve Kerr said of Wiggins after the Warriors' thrilling win.

Speaking of battling, Wiggins absolutely handcuffed Middleton on a good number of possessions.

And even when Middleton scored, he had to work really hard to get the ball through the net.

Wiggins without question is playing the best defense of his career this season.

He probably will fall short of getting his first All-Defensive honor, but don't be surprised if he earns a spot on one of the two teams next season.
