Nikola Vucevic knows the feeling.
On Wednesday, Andrew Wiggins reenacted his dunk on Vucevic from last month with the Joker, Nikola Jokic, on his way to back-to-back 40-point performance. Wiggins knocked down 15 of 26 shots (10 of 14 in the first half) and joined Kevin Love as the only player in franchise history with back-to-back 40-point games (I could have swore JR Rider did it). Wiggins also becomes just the 4th player under the age of 22 to put up back-to-back 40-point games; the answer to the other three are LeBron James, Kevin Durant and The Answer Allen Iverson.
Besides getting posterized, Jokic, who is replacing Joel Embiid in the skills competition, missed 13 of his 19 shots but still ended up with a nice fantasy line of 15 points, 14 boards, 4 assists, 4 blocks and 2 threes.
