On the first day of the 2017-18 NBA season, the Chicago Bulls took to the court for a game against the Golden State Warriors.
That’s the kind of game you could see on a television set in the summertime.
The game featured a lot of great plays, but the biggest highlight was the dunk by Chicago’s Andrew Wiggins, who broke out of the game’s first overtime period with an emphatic dunk on the way to a 101-100 victory.
“He just made a huge play and then just went in, made a couple of other plays,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said of Wiggins’ dunk.
“He’s really good, and we know it.”
Wiggins finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds and five assists, while helping the Bulls capture the franchise’s first-ever NBA title.
The Warriors, who won their first six games and were one game behind the Bulls for the title before falling in overtime, will look to get back on track against the Chicago Cubs in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday night.
The Bulls are favored to win the series, with a chance to go to six games in the series.
The Bulls beat the Cavs in seven games last year, while the Warriors beat the Cavaliers in five games.
