Anthony Edwards Misses Tip-off Due to Time Oversight, Timberwolves Secure Victory

A peculiar incident unfolded before the Minnesota Timberwolves’ matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night. As the game commenced, Nickeil Alexander-Walker took the court for the tip-off, assuming the starting position for the Timberwolves, while Anthony Edwards was unexpectedly stationed at the scorer’s table, poised to enter the game. Surprisingly, Edwards, who had previously logged an impressive 264 consecutive starts, was absent from the starting lineup, prompting speculation among fans and commentators alike.


In a postgame interview reported by the Associated Press, Anthony Edwards offered a straightforward explanation for his absence at tip-off, stating, “I lost track of time.” Although this admission may elicit amusement and perhaps some team discipline, the Timberwolves ultimately emerged victorious, clinching a 119-114 win over the Trail Blazers. Edwards played a pivotal role in the victory, contributing nine of his 13 points during a crucial fourth-quarter rally.

Despite the initial hiccup, the Timberwolves‘ triumph not only snapped a two-game losing streak but also propelled them back to the top spot in the Western Conference standings, following the Thunder’s defeat against the Lakers. While the incident may result in a team fine and light-hearted teasing during future film sessions, the team’s collective effort ensured a positive outcome, underscoring their resilience and ability to overcome unexpected challenges.
