This Andrew Wiggins No-Look Basket is Pretty Impressive (Video)
We’re not sure if the 2014 first overall draft pick was trying to add some razzle dazzle to his trademark spin move, or if he was just protecting his face, but this Andrew Wiggins no-look basket is impressive, nonetheless.
It harkens back to the days of Dee Brown, who made the no-look basket popular during his championship performance at the 1991 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
This Andrew Wiggins no-look basket may not be a high-flying dunk like Dee Brown’s, but it did occur during an actual game (with defenders on him), rather than a slam dunk contest.
Here’s the play as it happened live:
And here’s a replay, which shows Andrew Wiggins covering his face while finishing off a sweet spin-n-drive to the hoop:
Wiggins finished the game—a 110-101 victory over the Pacers— with 20 points, four assists, three rebounds, and a block. It was the ninth time in the last eleven games that he’s scored at least 20 points. He’s averaging 20.9 points over that 11-game span, and he leads all rookies this season with 14.7 points per game.
Meanwhile, Kevin Love has struggled in Cleveland and there’s even talk that he could opt out of his contract at the end of the season.
Some thought it would take some time to figure out who won the offseason trade between the Cavs and T-Wolves. Less than three months into the 2014-15 NBA Season, we may already have our answer.
