Anthony Edwards started off his sophomore season with a bang on Wednesday evening.
The former University of Georgia standout (and number one overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft) scored 29 points against the Houston Rockets, and the Minnesota Timberwolves cruised to a 124-106 blowout win.
During the game, Edwards was on fire, and there was a hilarious sequence where he told the Rockets to call a timeout to cool him down.
The video of Edwards can be seen in a tweet that is embedded below from Thomas Sullivan.
Edwards commented on the scene of events post-game, and his quote can be seen in a tweet that is embedded below from Bleacher Report.
Karl-Anthony Towns had 30 points and ten rebounds in the game, and D'Angelo Russell had 22 points and dished out seven assists.
If the big three of Edwards, Towns and Russell plays like they did on Wednesday against the Rockets all season going, there will be playoff basketball in Minnesota this season.
