“We won two games. They won two games. At this point, it’s whoever wins two [more] games. I don’t know how people look at it, but I look at it like I’m happy. I’m ready,” Edwards said.

Now, as the series heads back to Denver with the score tied, Edwards’ demeanor stands in stark contrast to the disappointment that Timberwolves power forward Karl-Anthony Towns had in himself at game four.

“Things weren’t falling today,” Towns said.

Despite a challenging shooting night, Edwards spoke to Towns, emphasizing the importance of maintaining confidence and aggression in the game.

“He gets paid to put the ball in the rim. I always tell him, ‘Don’t you ever stop shooting the ball because you missed five or six. I don’t give a damn. In order for us to win, we need you to score.’ I’m just happy he was aggressive the entire night,” Edwards said.

Towns, who has endured his share of on-court disappointments and personal tragedies, showed resilience in the Timberwolves’ playoff journey.

As the playoffs unfold, the Nuggets and Timberwolves face a critical moment within the playoff season, testing each team’s strength. Edwards’ confidence and words toward Murray display that the series remains wide open, showing the need to secure a victory and move on in the playoffs.
