Anthony Edwards soars with thunderous dunk in Timberwolves' victory over Jazz

Posted : 19 March 2024

Anthony Edwards showcased his second-half dominance with a resounding dunk over John Collins of the Utah Jazz during the third quarter of Monday night's game. This pivotal play not only contributed to the Minnesota Timberwolves' 114-104 victory but also left both players feeling the effects of the collision.


Reflecting on the electrifying moment, Edwards expressed his surprise at making the dunk, admitting he thought he might miss it due to his distance from the rim. Nonetheless, he credited divine intervention for the successful slam, which garnered widespread attention on social media.


Veteran point guard Mike Conley lauded Edwards' athleticism, likening him to a cat for his ability to land gracefully after powerful dunks. Edwards, who idolized dunking legends like Vince Carter, expressed fulfillment in achieving a goal he had long set for himself.


However, the euphoria of the dunk was tempered by injuries to both players. Edwards dislocated his left ring finger during the play, while Collins suffered a head contusion, leading him to be sidelined for the remainder of the game.


Despite the injuries, Edwards' dunk injected much-needed energy into the Timberwolves' lineup, especially as they were already missing key players due to injury. Edwards' relentless performance, which included 8 assists, 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks, underscored his growing impact on the team.


Timberwolves coach Chris Finch praised Edwards' ability to influence games positively, noting his improved composure and decision-making. Edwards' recent string of impressive performances, including three consecutive 30-point games, highlights his emergence as a formidable force in the league.
