The Phoenix Suns have their backs against the wall against the Minnesota Timberwolves, down 2-0 after Tuesday night’s 105-93.

The highlight of the night had to have been an incredible move that Anthony Edwards had on Kevin Durant, one that got the whole world talking.

Edwards backed Durant up before taking a shot over the 2014 NBA MVP. Afterward, you can see Edwards doing a little jawing that made Durant smile.

Jamal Crawford marveled at Edwards’s move on Durant and also explained Durant’s reaction.

“Kevin Durant WAS Anthony Edwards,” Crwaford told Pat McAfee. “He knows what that’s like to go after the greats and the vets. All you can do is laugh and respect it” he said.

Edwards finished his night with 15 points, five rebounds, eight assists, and three steals. During the regular season, he averaged  25.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.1 assists, and 1.3 steals per contest while shooting 46.1% from the field and 35.7% from the three-point range in 79 games.

The Suns can redeem themselves when they return home for games three and four. A win by the Wolves in Game 3 will all but assure a series victory, so the Suns must find a way to win and pull even in this series before their season is over.
