Edwards ended with 22 points (8-20 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and one rebound in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 111-109 loss to Memphis. Edwards didn't have his best game from a shooting perspective since he needed 20 shots to score 22 points, but he was just seconds away from being the hero when he drained a corner three in the dying moments of the fourth quarter. Despite the loss and the shooting struggles, Edwards has scored at least 20 points in four of the five games in the current series.
Edwards exited Saturday's Game 4 against the Grizzlies with an apparent right knee injury but has returned to the game. The 20-year-old grabbed at his right knee while dribbling up the court and promptly headed to the sideline before being helped to the locker room. Edwards returned to the bench a few minutes later and has now retaken the court, and he'll attempt to play through the injury with Minnesota facing a 2-1 deficit in the series.
Edwards put up 20 points (7-16 FG, 4-10 3PT, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal in a 124-96 loss to Memphis on Tuesday. Edwards eclipsed 20 points for the second straight game. The Georgia product is averaging 28.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals on 48.0 percent shooting from the field and 38.2 percent from deep through the first two games of the series.
Edwards amassed 36 points (12-23 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 8-8 FT), two rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal across 40 minutes during Saturday's 130-117 win over the Grizzlies. The second-year wing seemed to come into his own down the stretch for Minnesota, and Edwards carried that momentum right into the play-in tournament and the postseason. Not counting the final game of the regular season, when the Timberwolves had nothing on the line and he played only 18 minutes, Edwards has scored at least 30 points in four of his last five games, averaging 33.2 points, 5.0 assists, 4.6 boards, 4.0 threes and 1.0 steals in those contests. With the 20-year-old emerging as a true superstar alongside Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota may be a legitimate threat for a deep run in the Western Conference.
Edwards registered 30 points (10-21 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 37 minutes during Tuesday's 109-104 victory over the Clippers. The Clippers tried a variety of defensive schemes in an attempt to contain Edwards, but the size mismatch opposite Marcus Morris and the defensive skills of Paul George were unable to stop him. Edwards joined D'Angelo Russell to spur a massive rally, putting the Timberwolves back in the lead in the fourth quarter. Edwards and company will now move into the playoff bracket to face the Grizzlies, who will have their hands full against Minnesota's excellent backcourt.
