Anthony Edwards Fumes Over Officiating In Timberwolves’ Loss To The Lakers: “They Go To The Free Throw Line Every Time”


Never one to shy away from speaking his mind, Anthony Edwards voiced his frustrations about the officiating after the Minnesota Timberwolves’ tough 120-109 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Timberwolves were clearly at a disadvantage without Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns. As many expected, they were badly outrebounded and destroyed in the paint. However, what stood out most for Edwards was the fact that the Wolves only got to the line 13 times compared to the Lakers’ 29 free throw attempts.

Even more surprising, Anthony Davis had as many attempts as the entire Minnesota squad with 13. This noticeable gap, according to Edwards, made winning the game a tough task.


“It’s tough. It’s tough every night when we don’t get to the free throw line as much as the other team. When one player shoots more free throws than you’re entire team, it’s tough. It’s tough to compete. In the fourth quarter, when you miss a shot, and they go to the free throw line every time down the floor, so it’s tough.”
