Anthony Edwards led the Minnesota Timberwolves (12-4) with 24 points, supported by Karl-Anthony Towns and Mike Conley, each contributing 18, as they routed the struggling Memphis Grizzlies (3-13) with a resounding 119-97 victory on Sunday.

This win marks the Timberwolves’ fourth triumph in five games, solidifying their position atop the Western Conference standings.

Rudy Gobert played a significant role, adding 13 points to the Timberwolves’ impressive victory. Conley, with a season-high 10 assists and 6 of 9 from beyond the arc, played a crucial role in orchestrating Minnesota’s offense.

Jaren Jackson Jr. led the Grizzlies with 18 points, while Santi Aldama finished with 14. Desmond Bane struggled, scoring 13 points but going 5 of 16 from the field.

The Grizzlies, currently grappling with injuries and the absence of Ja Morant due to suspension, face challenges in maintaining competitiveness.

Minnesota continued to control the game in the third quarter, extending their lead to 90-66 despite limited minutes for Towns and Gobert due to foul troubles.

Although Memphis attempted a comeback, cutting the deficit to 102-90 in the fourth, the Timberwolves sealed the victory with an eight-point run, including crucial 3-pointers from Conley and Nickeil Alexander-Walker.
