The Golden State Warriors were already making life hard for the Dallas Mavericks before the fourth quarter on Sunday night.
Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals wasn’t going in Dallas’ favor and the team was struggling to keep up with Golden State.
Then came a dunk that shook the entire team, left Luka Doncic on the floor, and made Mavs fans grimace in pain.
Another look at Andrew Wiggins in flight.

The dunk in question came from Andrew Wiggins, who caught some serious air against Doncic.
Rising up with his right arm, he sailed to the bucket with a powerful one-handed dunk and left much of the American Airlines Center speechless.
It was a wild, impressive dunk – the best so far in Wiggins’ career – and was just another reason why the young star was having such a good night.
In the end, Wiggins had 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 assists for the 109-100 win over the Mavericks.
Only Steph Curry scored more points for Golden State.
Wiggins was a huge part of why the team secured a pivotal victory and put Dallas on the brink of being eliminated from the playoffs.
He was playing some incredible basketball and was both an offensive and defensive threat.
There are more than a few fans around the league who have been giving Wiggins a hard time for months now.
That’s mostly because he was selected as an All-Star this year over more accomplished and experienced players in the association.
However, you couldn’t deny Wiggins’ skills on Sunday night.
It wasn’t just the dunk that was worth talking about.
Wiggins was a force to be reckoned with for nearly every one of the 39 minutes he played in Game 3.
