Minnesota beats Booker-Durant-first Phoenix to advance to 2R

The Minnesota Timberwolves won 122-116 against the Phoenix Suns in Game 4 of the first round of the 2024 NBA Western Conference Playoff at Phoenix Footprint Center in Arizona on the 29th (Korea time).

Anthony Edwards (40 points, nine rebounds, six assists) and Carl-Anthony Towns (28 points, 10 rebounds, three assists) led the team to a two-man show. Minnesota easily advanced to the second round with four consecutive wins.

Minnesota, which trailed 56-61 in the first half, fought back in the second half. Towns scored back-to-back points, and Edwards made a 3-pointer. Kevin Durant and Devin Booker lost points, but Naz Reid and Edwards made the turnaround (76-75). But they lost points to Durant and Booker again. Yusuf Knuckic also lost points, finishing the third quarter with a slight 90-92 deficit.

Minnesota’s commitment to victory was outstanding in the fourth quarter. Mike Conley’s 3-pointer cut the rim after Reid put on a layup. Edwards and Towns continued their scoring streak, and Minnesota took a 105-101 lead with 5:34 left in the game.

Afterwards, Josh Okogie and Booker allowed the score to be tied again, but they did not falter. Jaden McDaniels burst into the outside shot, and Edwards slotted in a delightful dunk. Coach Chris Finch left the bench due to a sudden knee injury, but Conley calmly succeeded in two free throws from his opponent’s foul. Minnesota, which won the game, maintained its victory by not losing its concentration until the end.

Meanwhile, although Booker (49 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists) and Durant (33 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists) fought hard, Phoenix lost out to Minnesota in its last-minute fight for concentration. The loss ended the season in vain with four consecutive losses.
