Anthony Edwards goes at Kevin Durant as Timberwolves rout Suns 120-95

The Minnesota Timberwolves kicked off the first round of the playoffs with a dominant 120-95 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday. Anthony Edwards led the way with 33 points, including 18 in the third quarter, while Karl-Anthony Towns added 19 points and Rudy Gobert contributed with a solid defensive performance.

Kevin Durant scored 31 points for the Suns, but their lack of depth and size ultimately led to their downfall. The Wolves outrebounded the Suns 52-28 and outscored them 52-34 in the paint.

Game 2 will take place in Minneapolis on Tuesday before the series shifts to Phoenix for Game 3. Edwards’ standout performance included a key steal from Durant and a highlight-reel dunk, energizing the home crowd.

The Wolves’ bench also played a crucial role in the victory, outscoring the Suns’ reserves 41-18. Nickeil Alexander-Walker made significant contributions off the bench with 18 points on efficient shooting.

With the win, the Wolves secured their first Game 1 home victory in the playoffs in 20 years. The enthusiastic fan base at Target Center provided a finals-like atmosphere, cheering on their team to a memorable victory over a talented Suns squad.

The Wolves will look to carry this momentum into Game 2 and continue their quest for a deep playoff run. Stay tuned for more updates on the NBA playoffs.
