Minnesota’s Jarred Vanderbilt missed two free throws to put the game away for the Timberwolves. Anthony would grab the rebound and push the ball up the floor and took his shot.
"I’m like, ‘Alright, I probably won’t be able to get to the rim, but I can shoot this 3," Anthony said after the game. "It felt good. I didn’t really see the shot after I shot it. I seen it go through the net and that was about it."
Anthony Edwards, the No. 1 overall draft pick by the Timberwolves, was critical of himself and his teammates after the game.
"I feel like we gave the game away," Edwards said. "We had the game. I can’t say we had it, but we had control of the game the whole fourth quarter."
