Andrew Wiggins put on a dunkfest against the Utah Jazz, posterizing Rudy Gobert here and here.
He put down a powerful third dunk with Jeremy Evans in the picture:
Evans, being a former dunk champion, appreciated that, I’m sure. Too bad, the Wolves were smashed by the Jazz throughout the game, 104-84.

So Utah’s Rudy Gobert ego might be in shambles right now courtesy of Wolves’ Andrew Wiggins.
As if getting posterized once was bad enough, Gobert got smashed on twice by Wiggins in the same game and the last dunk was simply filthy.

Andrew Wiggins posterized Rudy Gobert with not one, but two vicious dunks during the Timberwolves vs. Jazz game on Monday night.
Andrew Wiggins is trying to close this year out strong. So is Rudy Gobert. But Wiggins got the better of Gobert in this Wolves/Jazz match-up.
Wiggins goes in for the slam and gets the foul from Gobert:
The Stifle Tower was stifled for that play, at least. But I’m sure Gobert is willing to take that challenge again.

Trey Burke was forced a call a timeout during crunch-time of Wednesday’s Jazz- Trail Blazers game after he apparently strained his neck. It almost appears as though Burke gets strung by a bee. The former Michigan Wolverine finished with 22 points on the night. [Ben Golliver]

The Utah Jazz managed to survive without Gordon Hayward when they played the New York Knicks, and if there was another game where you figured Hayward could take a rest and the Jazz would still win, it would be this game. However, that didn’t happen. Without Hayward on the court, the Jazz still remain one of the worst teams in the NBA.
That’s not to say there hasn’t been progress...

“Gordon Hayward is a year away from being a consistent all-star selection, not many players can do what he does. “
“Two months ago I didn’t think I would ever say this but the Jazz will be a playoff team next year.”
Yesterday I heard former Jazzman and current Utah Jazz TV Analyst, Thurl...
