Dunk of the postseason? Dunk of the postseason. The 2022 NBA Playoffs were played Sunday night with the Golden State Warriors defeating the Dallas Mavericks 109-100 to take the series lead 3-0 in the Western Conference Finals. But the story of the night focused solely on Andrew Wiggins.
More specifically, Wiggins’ disproportionate killing of Luka Doncic. Wiggins, who scored 27 points, the highest of his career in the playoffs, took the flight over Doncic in the middle of the fourth quarter for what was initially considered an offensive foul. Golden State challenged, and the decision was that Wiggins’ elbow at Doncic was an accidental contact, giving the Warriors a 93-83 lead.
The sports world immediately took to Twitter to react when Wiggins put Luka on a poster. That’s what everyone, from Magic Johnson to Terrell Owens, said about the moment. We also included an old tweet from Joel Embiid that didn’t age particularly well, because we’re so mean.
