The Minnesota Timberwolves found a way to stay alive in the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday night as they took down the Dallas Mavericks 105-100. The Mavericks are now up 3-1 in the series as they were not able to finish off the sweep. Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards both had huge games for the Timberwolves, and they are a big reason why Minnesota was able to get the win. Now, the series is shifting back to Minnesota for game five.

Anthony Edwards led all scorers with 29 points on Tuesday night, and Karl-Anthony Towns added 25 points of his own. Towns finished 4-5 from deep, and he was feeling confident with his stroke from deep.

“It’s Game 4, down 3-0, ain’t no time to have any doubts,” Towns said after the game, according to an article from ESPN. “Go out there and be aggressive, shoot my shot like I’ve been doing all series, being confident in every shot I shoot.”

When Edwards and Towns both play like that, they are incredibly tough to beat. They both know that, and Towns talked about how much he enjoys playing with Edwards after the win.

“I was on the bench and had a front-row seat watching that when I fouled out,” Towns said of Edwards’ late shot that sealed the game. “I feel like he was visualizing that make and he got to exactly the spot he wanted to. I’m honored to be playing with my brother here, seeing him every day put the work in, and I knew when he got to that shot it was a high likelihood he was going to make that.”

Now, the Timberwolves need to win three more if they want to make it to the NBA Finals. Next up is game five on Thursday night at home.
