The Minnesota Timberwolves played the Los Angeles Clippers in a play-in tournament game on Tuesday night at Target Center, where forward Anthony Edwards and guard D’Angelo Russell helped lead Minnesota to the win 109-104.

It was a tight finish for Minnesota, as they only led by four points. Had it not been for Edwards and Russell, who scored a combined 59 points, Timberwolves might not have gotten the win.

Edwards managed 30 points, two assists, and five rebounds and took advantage of LA’s weak defense.

“I took what the game gave me. That’s what they gave me. They were scared to guard me, and I took advantage of that,” he said.

Alongside Edwards on the front line, Russell had 29 points, six assists, and five rebounds.

“Just utilizing what we have,” Russell said. “We’ve got a lot of pieces that complement each other.”

However, the Timberwolves Karl-Anthony Towns appeared to struggle throughout the game, and only had 11 points, three assists, five rebounds, and fouled out mid-way of the fourth quarter.

Regardless, the victory propelled the Timberwolves to the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference and is scheduled to take on Memphis in an upcoming first-round game.
