Overall, LaVine finished his rookie season having played 77 games and averaging 10.1 points per game.

In early 2016, LaVine won a second-straight Slam Dunk Contest, making him only the fourth player ever to win two years in a row. He went on to play his last season for the Timberwolves in 2016-17. In November, LaVine tied his career high of 37 points in a victory over the Orlando Magic, and the following month topped that with 40 points in a loss to the Sacramento Kings. However, his season was cut short due to a torn ACL in February of 2017.
