'Never jumped that high in my life': Anthony Edwards dominates Pacers


Unfortunately, Karl-Anthony Towns was unable to play, and Monte Morris had to leave the game because of hamstring pain.  

Anthony Edwards delivered a remarkable effort on a night when the Timberwolves required his services more than they normally would have.   

Edwards led Minnesota to a stunning road win over the Indiana Pacers with Karl-Anthony Towns out indefinitely with a knee injury and Monte Morris out with hamstring tightness.   

A chase-down block at the buzzer helped Minnesota win the game 113-111. Edwards finished with a career-high 44 points, including 29 in the second half.   

He also concluded the game with a chase-down block, which secured the victory for Minnesota. On the left-handed block, he got so high that he managed to knock his head on the rim of the basket.   

"I believe on the rim after hitting my head. It hurts badly. "I landed on my wrist," Edwards told Bally Sports North's Marney Gellner after the triumph. "I ain't never jumped that high in my life."  

With 1:11 left in the game, Edwards made a three-pointer to put Minnesota ahead 108–105. He then made a jumper on the next trip down the court to make it 110–105 with 47 seconds left.   

Myles Turner hit a three-pointer for Indiana to answer, but Edwards scored another shot with 22 seconds left to give Indiana a 112-108 lead.  

With 16.7 seconds left, the Pacers scored three more points to cut the lead to one point. With 7.2 seconds left, Edwards made one of two free throws before making the great block.   

Edwards left the game 26 seconds in because he turned his left ankle, but he came back. Later in the first half, he fell hard and had to go to the locker room again before coming back to play.
