You know it's nasty when Andrew Wiggins screams in another player's face after a dunk.

That's what happened Wednesday night when Wiggins nearly killed Denver star Nikola Jokic with a massive poster dunk. If you're Nikola Jokic and you're reading this, don't watch the video below.

As bad ass as the dunk was, head coach Tom Thibodeau didn't care.

"It's two points. Two points," he said after the game.

Yeah right. Thibs' heart probably skipped a beat when he thought Jokic was dead like the rest of us.

Wiggins finished the game with 40 points, becoming the fourth player under 22 years old in NBA history with back-to-back 40-point games. The others are pretty good: LeBron James, Allen Iverson and Kevin Durant.
