Analysis

Anthony Edwards was the break-out star of the opening round of the playoffs, and Minnesota is going to need him to find that killer scoring instinct on the road in Game 5. Outside of having seven assists in Game 2, Edwards has not cleared this assist mark in the other three games of this series. In eight games against the Nuggets this season, Edwards has only cleared this assist mark two times. He's only averaging 8.9 potential assists per game, so he isn't looking for assist opportunities and based on that number, there's no real margin for Edwards' assist total to rise if he's going to continue playing so aggressively on offense. Edwards has cleared this number in just 37-percent of games this season, and the T-Wolves are going to need him to score, not facilitate, in tonight's pivotal Game 5.
