If you didn't stay up late to watch the Timberwolves lose to the Rockets in Mexico City last night, you missed a pretty good ballgame and a couple of awesome highlights from rookie Andrew Wiggins.

No worries. We're here to help.

Check out Wiggins blowing by All-Star guard James Harden for an awesome dunk.

"I know what people want me to do and everything like that," Wiggins said recently, according to Bleacher Report. "But for me, I'm just thinking, it's a long season. Hopefully, I'll be around for a while. So I'll have time to really do what I have to do."

He's already doing a lot – on both ends of the court. Wiggins showed off some defensive prowess when he swatted a layup by Harden off the backboard.

But it wasn't all roses for Wiggins, who scored 15 points to lead all Minnesota starters in scoring. At one point he ran into the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Dwight Howard, and the result wasn't good for the rookie.
