The Timberwolves may have had to rush out and sign a guy within driving distance of New York just so they’d be able to suit up the minimum of eight players required for Thursday night’s contest against the Knicks.
But two of them might be cornerstones of the franchise for years to come.
Andrew Wiggins is working on finishing up a Rookie-of-the-Year-type season, and Zach LaVine has already gained national attention by winning the Slam Dunk Contest.
The two connected on a nice alley-oop play that gave LaVine the opportunity to once again show off his leaping ability in NYC.
The reverse angle in slow motion is even more impressive.
