Anthony Edwards Astounded by Nikola Jokic’s Dominance

Anthony Edwards succinctly captured Nikola Jokić’s dominance with just three words, expressing sheer disbelief at the Denver Nuggets star’s performance in Game 5 against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Jokić erupted for 40 points, his highest tally in this year’s playoffs, leading the Nuggets to a commanding 112–97 victory over the Timberwolves. Edwards, the Timberwolves’ standout guard, could only shake his head and laugh when reflecting on Jokić’s stellar display.

“I’m just amazed,” Edwards told reporters post-game. “I can’t be upset; the guy’s a phenomenon. I’ve been saying it since Game 1. He’s the MVP, the cream of the NBA crop, and he’s proven it consistently over these last three games.”

Despite dropping the first two games at home, the Nuggets have rallied back to seize a 3–2 series lead, largely propelled by Jokić’s brilliance. His performance has been nothing short of extraordinary, averaging 33.0 points, 9.7 assists, and 9.3 rebounds in the last three matchups.

“He was on another level tonight,” Edwards acknowledged. “Credit where it’s due. But honestly, I’m at a loss for what we can do against him.”

With Game 6 looming and elimination staring them down, Edwards and the Timberwolves are urgently seeking answers to contain Jokić as they prepare to face the Nuggets once again on Thursday at Target Center.
