VIDEO: Hawks’ John Collins gets the pass from Kevin Huerter and dunks it all over the Timberwolves
Peep the clip below to see Huerter’s sneaky pass and Collins’ vicious finish. Wolves swingman Josh Okogie tried to stop the slam to no avail. Collins’ slam was just too mean to be swatted.

In the end, it was the Hawks who prevailed with the road win, 127-120. Trae Young led all scorers with 38 points, as well as 11 assists and four rebounds. Collins had a double-double with 27 points and 12 rebounds. Hawks big man Damian Jones had 14 points and eight rebounds, while De’Andre Hunter had 12 markers. The win snaps the Hawks’ two-game slump and ushers in a potentially new era with some key additions recently via trade.
The Timberwolves were led by Andrew Wiggins’ 25 points. Okogie chipped in 23 points while Karl-Anthony Towns had 21 points and 11 rebounds. The Wolves had lost 13 straight games — the longest active losing streak so far.
