Timberwolves vs Warriors: Anthony Edwards takes flight over James Wiseman

Anthony Edwards takes flight over James Wisema

Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Anthony Edwards recorded just two points in the first half on Monday, January 25, versus the Golden State Warriors, but the No. 1 overall pick sure made them count.

Edwards went 1-of-5 from the field as the Timberwolves trailed 68-55 at halftime but had perhaps the highlight of the night to that point of the game and it was against a rookie peer.

With under two minutes to go in the first quarter, Jaden McDaniels passed the ball to Edwards at the top of the 3-point arc. Edwards seemingly had plenty of room ahead of him, so he drove into the lane and met James Wiseman at the rim.

From there, Edwards did the rest and threw down his signature dunk.

Wiseman can be seen in the highlight rotating over to contest the attempt but he ultimately made a business decision and let Edwards go by for the easy jam.

The battle of the top two picks in the NBA draft was a bit tame in the first half, though the dunk certainly placed Edwards in contention for the dunk of the year in just his 16th game of the season.
