There’s no questioning Anthony Edwards’ status as one of the NBA’s most dangerous offensive threats right now. What some people might miss, though, is the effort the Minnesota Timberwolves star makes on defense.

If you’re among those who haven’t seen Edwards’ defensive skills in action, you’d best feast your eyes on his LeBron James-ensured chase-down block on Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. It was amazing to see:

One of the greatest defensive stops in NBA Finals history will always be remembered as LeBron’s block of Andre Iguodala. The significance of such a situation highlighted James’ valorous actions when they mattered most. Although Edwards’ block on Wednesday night wasn’t as effective, you can’t blame the Wolves star for not trying harder.

When Luka Doncic received the outlet pass, Anthony Edwards hadn’t yet reached the half-court line. To block what ought to have been an easy deuce for Luka, Edwards ran the full length of the floor. This play should dispel any doubts that there may have been about Edwards’ effort on the basketball court.

However, the final score of the game was 104-99 in favor of Luka and the Mavs. With a final tally of 25 points, nine rebounds, and 10 assists, Doncic set a new game-high. In contrast, Edwards recorded 23 points, four rebounds, and five assists. The Timberwolves three-game winning streak was broken on Wednesday.
