Timberwolves F Jaden McDaniels’ incredible poster dunk vs Kings stuns NBA fans

The Minnesota Timberwolves are cruising their way to securing a postseason spot after clinching a win over the Sacramento Kings at the Golden 1 Center last night.

The 119-115 win stretched the Timberwolves’ victory to four games, and it was the result of pure team effort and a little bit of individual brilliance from Jaden McDaniels.

He scored 20 points with three rebounds and two assists, but that wasn’t the key moment for the small forward.

With four minutes remaining during the fourth quarter, the 22-year-old got the ball outside of the arc but decided to barge in and ended up with a stunning dunk for the Wolves.

At that moment, the visiting team went up to 114 points with a 10-point lead, and fate wrote the game.

The NBA community went bonkers after witnessing such an iconic dunk in the ending moment from the youngster and started pouring praise.
