Anthony Edwards FURIBOUS with referees: “I’ll take a FINE but…”

It looks like Anthony Edwards may be fined. After the Minnesota Timberwolves’ 107-to-101 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Edwards directed criticism at the referees.

In particular, the guard dwelt on how the Timberwolves had to play with the Thunder’s physicality, with no whistle blown by the referees.

“I’ll take the fine, but the referees didn’t protect us tonight.” said Edwards. “We had to play on every bump, every contact — I don’t know. I don’t know how we won tonight.”

As a team, the Timberwolves had only two more personal fouls than the Thunder (19 total for Minnesota and 17 for Oklahoma City). In terms of free throws, however, the Timberwolves totaled 15 attempts compared to 22 for the Thunder.

The game was a seesaw affair, with a total of 24 lead changes. The Thunder’s last taste of a lead, however, came with 2:43 left in the game. Oklahoma City held a one-point lead, 97-96. Jaden McDaniels made a three-point basket, while Edwards scored a dunk to put the Timberwolves up by four points. Minnesota did not relinquish the lead until late in the game.

Anthony Edwards led the Timberwolves with 27 points, while Karl-Anthony Towns posted a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds.
