Timberwolves rookie Anthony Edwards made the most of the Trail Blazers’ focus on Karl-Anthony Towns on Sunday. In the win, Edwards recorded a career-best 34 points and captured the attention of superstar guard Damian Lillard.
After the game, Lillard delivered his game-worn jersey to the No. 1 pick. Edwards shared a brief video of his new jersey—that included a message from Lillard—on social media. Lillard, in turn, promoted that message.
