Wiggins relishes poster dunks, not revenge game vs. T-Wolves

Andrew Wiggins threw down two huge poster dunks Wednesday night in the Warriors' 123-110 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves at Chase Center.

Just take a look for yourself at Maple Jordan getting up in front of the home crowd. 

Both dunks came at the expense of Wiggins' former teammate, Karl-Anthony Towns. That's exactly why Wiggins can't pick a favorite of the two. 

"Man, I don't know," Wiggins said. "I like them both, they were both on KAT. That's my guy."

Did it make it sweeter that they were both on Towns? 

"Oh, for sure," Wiggins said. "He got me last year, so I just got him back." 

The Cleveland Cavaliers selected Wiggins with the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. But he was traded to the T-Wolves before the season began. One year later, Minnesota made Towns the No. 1 pick. 

Wiggins saved his best this season for his former team, scoring a season-high 35 points. He at least says this wasn't a revenge game, though. 

"Nah, not no revenge game," Wiggins said. "Well-played game against a former team. That's all that was. Competitive game, fun game. 

"The game of basketball is fun."

Wiggins can say what he wants, but the truth is he has shined bright against both the Cavs and T-Wolves in his career. In 13 games against Cleveland, he has averaged 23.8 points and in four games against Minnesota, he now has averaged 26 points per game. Both are his highs against any opposing team. 

 

"He always does that," Towns said to reporters. "Any team -- Cavaliers traded him, Wolves traded him -- you expect him to come out and play well."
