Anthony Edwards says Timberwolves handed playoff series to Grizzlies: “It was like taking candy from a baby”

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA - MARCH 11: Anthony Edwards #1 of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Jaden McDaniels #3 of the Minnesota Timberwolves react after scoreing a three point basket during the third quarter of an NBA game against the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center on March 11, 2021 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Anthony Edwards thinks that the Timberwolves could have handled their first round series against the Grizzlies much better. Minnesota won Game 1 and led the series 2-1 before losing three games in a row and getting eliminated.

The 20-year-old small forward used an illustrative analogy to explain how easily his team gave the series away. Edwards compared to taking a candy from a baby.

Over the six playoff games he was the clear leader of the Timberwolves averaging 25.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3 assists in 37.8 minutes per game.

Via Zion Olojede of Complex:

Speaking of the playoffs, do you still think of your loss to the Grizzlies and feel like y’all gave the series away?
Man, I feel like we handed it to them man. It was like taking candy from a baby and they took the candy. We had every game won man and I don’t know what happened. I don’t know what happened.
