It takes a lot of character to take down the reigning NBA champions, let alone do it away from home.

The Minnesota Timberwolves took their punches, but they never waived the white flag.

If anything, Chris Finch’s team rallied together when their backs were against the wall, winning back-to-back games to secure a spot in the next round.

Following the game, former NFL star QB Robert Griffin III had plenty to say about it, praising Anthony Edwards for his leadership.

He stated that as much as his swagger and demeanor don’t show up on the scoreboard, his teammates feed off it to feel confident and make plays.

He also pointed out the fact that the Timberwolves had the largest comeback in a Game 7 in NBA history, rallying from a 15-point deficit with a 60-37 second half to take down the defending champions.

The tenacity and swag of Anthony Edwards doesn’t show up in the box score, but it shows up in the confidence and demeanor of his teammates.

Biggest second half comeback in Game 7 history, outscoring the defending NBA Champ Denver Nuggets 60-37 to win Game 7 ON THE ROAD.

Holding a team like the Denver Nuggets to just 37 points in the second half shows what a special defensive team this is.

Chris Finch’s squad takes pride in it’s defensive prowess, and they played with the toughness that you have to play when you’re going against the NBA champions.

The job is far from done, though, as they still have to take down the up-and-coming Dallas Mavericks, another hardnosed and competitive team with a great feel for playing defense.

This will be an epic chess battle between two hungry squads, and this is where Edwards’ leadership will be even more crucial to his teammates and this organization.
