Anthony Edwards goes for 40 in the Wolves’ 8th win in their last 11 games, and the Wolves are now over-.500 for the first time since November 29th.
Keeping our Portland tradition alive, @KyleTheige again joins tonight’s postgame pod (with a victory beer).…9:50 AM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
He named his dog after himself, says he feels like Black Jesus and can see fear in his opponent’s eyes.
The audacity of Anthony Edwards is just what this long-suffering franchise has needed for so long.…9:39 AM
Justin Kubatko @jkubatko

Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell did their presser together tonight. Ant was describing how he played 38 minutes and 44 seconds and how McCollum played 38 minutes and 17 seconds, but DLo cut him off and said: “You ain’t gotta tell em you clamp, they’ll see.” – 1:46 AM

Chris Finch on Anthony Edwards after another 40-point performance:
“He’s got such a great spirit about him. He’s pretty much indomitable in that regard. His teammates love him. And they love him for not only how he plays but who he is as a player because he’s genuine.” – 12:59 AM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Chris Finch on Anthony Edwards’ 40-point night:
“He has that mentality. He believes he can win any battle, any game, any matchup. We’ve seen a few of these type of performances this season. Not only did he have the 40, but when we needed it most, he was making big shots.” – 12:56 AM

Another Anthony Edwards explosion (40 points, 9 rebs)
Wolves 109, Blazers 107
On tonight’s show w/ @KyleTheige:
– Ant drives the bus
– DLo’s game-winner (on a goaltend)
– Another slow start for KAT
– Prince delivers again, closes with starters
– Whatever is on Kyle’s mind – 12:34 AM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
This is the fourth 40-point performance of Anthony Edwards’ career. Second of this season. – 12:21 AM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Anthony Edwards has 40. He knows it — just looked up at the scoreboard and smiled.
Go ahead and smile — Ant’s the reason the Wolves are winning this game. – 12:18 AM
Tony Mejia @MejiaDinero
Didn’t play #RaisedbyWolves or Anthony Edwards in any DFS since he needed help off the floor last time out. Apparently just cramped up after that steal and dunk since he’s apparently the quickest healer known to man. What a marvelous athlete. He’s gone for a season-high 40 points – 12:18 AM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Anthony Edwards driving the bus in the 4th. Then KAT comes around for a running hook, then Vando gets a big steal that turns into a DLo made 3 – 12:14 AM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
This is a remarkable performance from Anthony Edwards. Just putting this team on his back. – 12:09 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Anthony Edwards has taken this game over – 12:09 AM

I was very wrong about Anthony Edwards before the draft, but now I love him. – 12:08 AM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
That knee is loosening up for Anthony Edwards – 10:55 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Without Patrick Beverley, the difficulty of defensive matchup increases for Anthony Edwards.
Last game, Ant was matched with Kyrie (McDaniels on Harden) and tonight Ant is on McCollum (McDaniels on Simons) – 10:17 PM
Anthony Edwards @theantedwards_
We celebrating tonight! These hoopers are going to @McDAAG 2022: @Mark_mitchell25 @D1_Ruby2 @iamKijaniWright @Ashlon3Jackson @_CamWhitmore_. It’s your time now, go get it. #ad PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Anthony Edwards update from shootaround. He said his left knee has been giving him issues of late and what happened late in Sunday’s game did not help.
“I’ve been having knee problems lately and bumping it makes it hurt super, super bad.”
But he said he’s fine. – 2:37 PM
