Minnesota Timberwolves sophomore Anthony Edwards was just shy of 50 points on Thursday night. But it wasn’t from lack of trying.

The Timberwolves star was hellbent on getting his career-high scoring total to the nice, round 50-mark in the final minutes of their game against the San Antonio Spurs. He hit 47 with 1:36 left in the game then proceeded to jack up three after three to reach his milestone.

Antman missed four triples in a row, which actually allowed the Spurs to creep back into the game a bit towards the end as they scored seven unanswered points to cut the lead to four in that span.

Anthony Edwards was able to score two more points from the free throw line, but ultimately missed out on his 50-piece. Asked about whether he was hung up over falling short of his mark, the T-Wolves star claimed he was unbothered.

“Nah, nah. I was just answering the question. I really don’t care when we won. I ain’t tripping,” said the Timberwolves star.

Just because Edwards was one point shy of 50, doesn’t invalidate the other 49 points that came in a Minnesota win. His ability to dominate a game offensively was on full display, which is something his coaches are staying on him about honing in more often.

“Me and [Timberwolves assistant coach] Micah Nori had a long talk yesterday about just dominating, being a leader. Just coming out and just, like I said, dominating in everything that I’m doing.”

Antman’s epic scoring outburst brought him into LeBron James territory as the Timberwolves guard has become such a potent scorer at such a young age.

Anthony Edwards is only in his second season in the NBA and yet he’s already flashing his immense superstar potential. It’s only a matter of time before games like this come much more often.
