Timberwolves sweep Suns, Anthony Edwards leads with 40-point explosion

Posted : 29 April 2024

In a historic victory, the Minnesota Timberwolves swept the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the playoffs, marking their first playoff series win in 19 seasons. Guard Anthony Edwards rose to the occasion, scoring a remarkable 31 of his 40 points in the second half, showcasing his burgeoning talent and determination. Karl-Anthony Towns contributed 28 points overall, while Jaden McDaniels added 18 points, guiding the Timberwolves to a 122-116 victory over the Suns.


Despite Devin Booker's impressive 49-point performance for the Suns, including 18 points in the third quarter, Phoenix struggled to contain the Timberwolves' offensive firepower. Edwards' exceptional shooting, including seven 3-pointers, proved pivotal in Minnesota's triumph, overshadowing the Suns' efforts to mount a comeback in the tight fourth quarter.


The game took a dramatic turn when Timberwolves coach Chris Finch left the game late in the fourth quarter due to a collision with guard Mike Conley. Assistant coach Micah Nori took over for the final minutes as Minnesota maintained their composure to secure the win. With their victory secured, the Timberwolves now await the outcome of the Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers series to determine their next opponent in the second round.


Despite the Suns' best efforts to disrupt Minnesota's game plan with various defensive strategies in the first half, including deploying five perimeter players at times, they fell short in containing the Timberwolves' offensive onslaught. Grayson Allen's absence due to a sprained ankle further challenged the Suns, as they struggled to match the intensity and execution displayed by Minnesota throughout the game.v
