Zach LaVine will throw out first pitch at tonight's Twins-Mariners game in Seattle

Jon Krawczynski

Twins are in Seattle to play the Mariners tonight. Zach LaVine throwing out the first pitch. I think he's going to dunk it

Dave Mason

Hey @Zach LaVine, are you still scared of me? #DunkOfTheDay http://t.co/YLetx5ZFiE

Alex Kennedy

Zach LaVine had a strong finish to the season. In April, he averaged 21.1 points, 6.6 assists and 5.8 boards. He just turned 20 last month.

Ira Winderman

James Ennis finished second to Zach LaVine in free-throw pct. among rookies, with Shabazz Napier third in 3-point pct. among rookies.

Royce Young

So one thing has been well established early in this game: Zach LaVine can't guard Russell Westbrook.

Darnell Mayberry

Sign that Andrew Wiggins & Zach LaVine are still 20-year-old rookies: both just walked to the media dining kitchen to get their own cookies.

Joe Cowley

All Rookie First Team - Payton, Clarkson, Wiggins, Mirotic, Noel. Second Team: Galloway, SMART, LaVine, Black, Nurkic.

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine on Wiggins: "I don’t want to hear anybody saying there is anyone close to him. He had the best rookie year by far."

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine: getting stronger is priority No. 1 this summer. Eating right, maturing. Oh, and "Just lifting. I’ve never really actually lifted."

Andy Greder

#Twolves rookie Zach LaVine said he expects to play in the Las Vegas summer league.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Looking like Hood or Zach LaVine for the final Rookie of the Month in the West. Thinking Elfrid Payton-Bogdan Bogdanovic in the East.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Final rookie rank: 1 Noel 2 Wiggins 3 Payton 4 Mirotic 5 Clarkson 6 Nurkic 7 Smart 8 Galloway 9 Bogdanovic 10 LaVine. on.nba.com/1zh091l

Royce Young

Westbrook was very complimentary of LaVine, though. Said, "he jumps way higher than me."

Royce Young

Westbrook asked if he sees some of himself in Zach LaVine: "Uh, no. I don't see any of me in nobody."

Jon Krawczynski

Someone asked Westbrook if he sees any of himself in Zach LaVine. Russ: "No. I don't see any of me in nobody, to tell you the truth."

Rob Mahoney

Wiggins is the higher profile case, but I worry about what Flip’s coaching might do to LaVine. Much smaller margin for developmental error.

Jon Krawczynski

Zach LaVine said he looked at @laettnerbball 's rookie scoring record before season and knew either he or Wiggins was going to break itg

Marc Stein

My 11-year-old wants me to vote @Zach LaVine for Rookie of the Year. Is a 20-point quarter on same night as Knicks/Magic enough of a case?

Kurt Helin

Timberwolves’ Zach LaVine sores career-high 37 points (VIDEO) dlvr.it/9MDFBy

Abraham Romero

GSW 110 - MIN 101 Curry (34) acaba con LaVine (37) y da otro pasito más hacia el MVP ver.as/usw_t

Jerry Zgoda

For those who've asked if Flip will coach next year: After tonight's game featuring Wiggins/LaVine, do you see him walking away from that?

Chris Palmer

#LOTN (runner-up): @Zach LaVine career-high 37 pts, 9 rebs, 4 asts, 13-21 FG, 6-10 3FG, 5-5 FT, (20 in 4th)

Jerry Zgoda

LaVine's 34 points on 12/18 shooting is by 6 his career (and season, of course) high. His shooting got them w/in 94-93, but GS leads 99-95

Eric Pincus

Zach LaVine going off

Monte Poole

Russell Westbrook is wearing Zach LaVine's jersey for MIN tonight against #Warriors.

Jon Krawczynski

What a game for Zach LaVine

Jon Krawczynski

When LaVine sets his feet it's a nice-looking jumper. When his legs are flailing away on the move is when he gets in trouble

Rusty Simmons

#Warriors 86, Timberwolves 79 (9:59, 4th) Zach LaVine scored eight of the T-Wolves' points during that 10-0 run.

Rusty Simmons

GSW vs. MIN starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; MIN -- LaVine, Martin, Wiggins, Payne, Hamilton. Out: Barbosa.

Mike Trudell

Post A.S. splits: Clarkson- 16.0 ppg, 5.2 apg, 4.7 rpg, 2.3 T.O.'s, 48.2% FG's; LaVine- 12.6 ppg, 3.8 apg, 3.5 rpg, 3.3 T.O.'s, 42.5% FG's.

Eric Pincus

Zach LaVine saying - game ain't over yet - back-to-back 3's

Mark Medina

Lakers up 30-21 over T-Wolves after 1st Q. Zach Lavine has 6 points for Minny, while Clarkson (9) & Kelly (8) leading Lakers

Bill Oram

LaVine/Clarkson is already fun.

Gary Lee

Ryan Kelly just tried to block a Zach LaVine dunk... http://t.co/9EE3VVbWzf

Raul Barrigon

I'll give you one name for today's FantasyScore roster: Zach LaVine. bit.ly/1EhY23f http://t.co/ykvA4tn6mM

Kevin Pelton

Zach LaVine's quickness takes him places before he's figured out what he wants to do when he gets there.

Erik Gundersen

Can we just stop the game, bring out the Quad City DJ's and have LaVine dunk? Feels like that would be best for everyone involved.

Jason Jones

Stauskas' foul prevents us from seeing Zach LaVine dunk. Kings down 28-21. Kings already have 8 turnovers with 1:43 left in the 1st quarter

James Ham

Starters: Kings - Casspi, Gay, Evans, McLemore, McCallum Timberwolves - Wiggins, Payne, Hamilton, Martin, LaVine

Darren Wolfson

Golden Valley's Rashad Vaughn will do draft workouts w/ Wiggins/LaVine trainer @PureSweat. They 1st connected at John Wall's Camp years ago.

Zach Lowe

Zach LaVine has this thing, where I inexplicably think every pull-up 3 he takes is going on.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo & Zach LaVine faced off Fri for the 1st time since the dunk contest. Magic-Wolves notebook: ht.ly/LbHws

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine started 0-3, but just got credit for Elfrid Payton tipping the ball into his own basket. The classic get-him-going move

John Denton

Cool pics of @timberwolves @ZachLavine - the dunk champ.Said he didn't think he could do @Victor Oladipo 540 degree dunk http://t.co/GiYEULdifO

Dave Mason

In case you missed it, or you just want to enjoy it again....Here's my #DunkOfTheDay: instagram.com/p/1BSZadiEb6/ Your move, @Zach LaVine

Josh Robbins

Another tidbit: Dunk contest champ Zach LaVine said today he doesn't think he can do a 540-degree dunk.

Jerry Zgoda

It's a final: Raptors 113, Wolves 99. Wiggins w/ 25 on 8/20, LaVine 22 on 10/17, Budinger 19

Ryan Ward

Jordan Clarkson is currently 3rd in the NBA among rookies in scoring at 10.7 ppg ahead of Noel, Mirotic, Payton, LaVine, Bogdanovic, Smart.
