Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards Throws Down an Incredible Dunk – But It Doesn’t Count

Minnesota Timberwolves youngster Anthony Edwards put down one of the most ferocious dunks of the 2021-22 NBA season against the Miami Heat in the fourth quarter of Wednesday, but it didn’t count.

Edwards made a handy backdoor cut and got the bounce pass on the wing. As he drove to the ring, he was met by guard Gabe Vincent a few steps from the circle in the key. Edwards decided to baptize Vincent and put him on the poster.

Edwards jumped right through Vincent and hit the ball home.

However, he was called up for an offensive foul when Vincent stepped forward to take over the charge. The dunk didn’t count and the 2020 No. 1 overall pick was thwarted by two key points.
