Andrew Wiggins is new to the playoffs but his plays says otherwise.

The Golden State Warriors now lead the series 3-2 and moved one win away from another championship after a 104-94 win in Game 5 thanks to his heroics on both offense and defense.

The former no. 1 overall dropped 26 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and a block to save Stephen Curry who misfired with only 16 points from 7-of-22 from the field, 0-9 from downtown that ended his playoffs streak with a triple made starting 2018, his first playoff game.

Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole were also critical to the victory adding 21 and 14 apiece. Gary Payton tallied 15 silent points as well.

Meanwhile, the Celtics suffered their first back-to-back defeat this postseason.
