Timberwolves rookies Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine impressed during the NBA 's Rising Stars Challenge at the Barclays Center in New York Friday night.

Wiggins finished with 22 points and took home the game's MVP award after leading the World team to a 121-112 victory over the U.S. team

LaVine was equally as impressive in the loss for the U.S. He matched Wiggins' 22 points and did it on 9-of-11 shooting.

The Wolves' second year players were also pretty impressive. Gorgui Dieng scored 14 points and had four rebounds for the World, while Shabazz Muhammad added 10 for the U.S.

During the game, LaVine showed off some impressive dunks. He'll be able to show off a few more of them on Saturday night in the All-Star Game Slam Dunk competition.
