No player in the NBA has been burned like Shabazz Napier was by Kris Dunn on Sunday. The Wolves' rookie point guard undressed Napier with a filthy around the back dribble. And by around the back, we mean around Napier's back.

"You gotta be borderline crazy to do that," Portland's TV announcer said.

With Ricky Rubio benched the entire fourth quarter after getting destroyed by Portland's C.J. McCollum, Dunn played the fourth quarter and finished the game with 11 points on 5 of 7 shooting. He added 4 assists, 3 blocks and a steal.

"No. I feel I can do a lot more," said Dunn when asked if it was a breakout game for him, according to Wolves Radio. "It just takes time. I'm trying to learn the game more and more. I don't know what my breakthrough game is, but this definitely wasn't it."

Minnesota lost 95-89. Despite an 11-23 record, the Wolves are only 3 1/2 games out of a playoff spot.
