In a spirited display of resilience, the Minnesota Timberwolves rallied to a 105-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks, avoiding a series sweep and forcing a crucial Game 5 in the Western Conference finals.

Karl-Anthony Towns ignited the Timberwolves’ resurgence, delivering a stellar second-half performance with 20 of his 25 points, while Anthony Edwards contributed a dynamic stat line of 29 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists.

With the series now at 3-1 in favor of Dallas, the Timberwolves are primed for a do-or-die Game 5 showdown on their home court.

Edwards, fueled by the prospect of a sweep, approached the game with added determination. “I ain’t never been swept in my career,” he revealed postgame.

“C. Hines texted me this morning and told me that even though I’ve been to the playoffs only three times, I’ve never been swept so I took it personal. I didn’t wanna go home, I didn’t wanna get swept. Not on their home court. Hearing their fans talk trash all day.”
