Yesterday, Edwards put on another clinical display for Minnesota, as the Timberwolves defeated the Memphis Grizzlies. Following the game, Edwards again became the talk of the town, as his highlight-worthy dunk left many fans and his girlfriend mesmerized.

After a power-packed performance, Jeanine Robel and Jarred Vanderbilt had nothing but words of awe for Ant-Man. They individually shared the moment when Anthony Edwards turned the game around. To give you better context: While the Timberwolves won the game against the Grizzlies by a scoreline of 118-103, it wasn’t straightforward by any means. At the start of the fourth quarter, Minnesota trailed by five points. However, Edwards’ self-lob dunk late in the third quarter appeared to be the turning point in the game, as the Timberwolves outscored the Grizzlies in the fourth quarter by 20 points.

This is the exact moment they both shared on their Instagram stories. Former teammate, Vanderbilt posted a story with the caption, “Aye chill out sac”. On the other hand, his girlfriend, Jeanine Robel, reposted the dunk too with the caption, “OMG”. Take a look at it yourself!
