Minnesota Dominates Game 6

Anthony Edwards’ 27 points spearheaded a dominant 115-70 victory for the Minnesota Timberwolves in Game 6, forcing a thrilling Game 7. Jaden McDaniels chipped in 21 points and excelled on defense, while Mike Conley’s return from injury boosted the Wolves offense.

Nikola Jokic was held to a relatively quiet 22 points as Minnesota’s big men dominated the paint. The Wolves clamped down defensively, limiting Jamal Murray to just 10 points and Denver’s bench to a mere nine points.

A 24-0 run in the fourth quarter by the Wolves’ reserves sealed the deal, but the Nuggets were fighting from behind after Minnesota’s 25-5 first-quarter run. Edwards, whose previous 44-point performance wasn’t enough in Game 4, led the charge on both offensive and defensive ends.

Minnesota’s defense, which had struggled in the previous games, returned to form, holding Denver to just 14 points in the first quarter and then an unfathomable nine points in the fourth quarter.
