Anthony Edwards Gets Brutally Trolled by NBA Twitter Following ‘Jamal Murray Handcuffs’ Comment Post Game 7

The Minnesota Timberwolves caused one of the biggest upsets of the season by kicking out the defending champions in Game 7 of their second-round series. With a 98-90 win at Ball Arena, the Wolves booked their spot for the Conference Finals where they’ll now play the Dallas Mavericks. After the brilliant road win despite his poor shooting form, Anthony Edwards was feeling on top of the world and ended up taking shots at Jamal Murray.

The Wolves star, during his celebratory walk inside the arena’s tunnel, was heard saying, “I had Jamal [Murray] in handcuffs.” 

Even though the adrenaline rush might have led to Edwards’ comment, some people took offense to that. Murray had a pretty good day before the fourth quarter, playing with a strained calf.

The Nuggets star had 35 points with three rebounds and three assists in 43 minutes and was the highest scorer of the game as well. He shot 13 for 27 from the field and 4 for 12 from the three-point line. Therefore, many were upset with Ant’s dismissive remark. They even brutally trolled after the game.

NBA writer Ben Golliver shared a clip of the comment. Soon the trolling started in the comments section as the post took off.

One fan reiterated Murray’s stats from the game to remind Ant-Man that he didn’t really have the 27-year-old in handcuffs.

Some fans were expecting more humility and sportsmanship from Ant-Man, especially since he ended up on the winning side. One fan stated that he is “classless” and needs to learn some manners.

Another fan said that Edwards shouldn’t be the one to talk about restricting a player on the court if he ended up shooting 6 for 24 from the field.

The Wolves are yet to win their first NBA title or even the Conference title. So Ant-Man’s arrogance sticks out like a sore thumb.

One fan said that Murray had more than double the points Edwards had. In his opinion, it’s laughable.

On an off day in scoring, Edwards had 16 points on the board with eight rebounds, seven assists, and two steals. He went 6 for 24 from the field, 2 for 10 from the three-point line in 44 minutes of playing time. His average points per game in this postseason has been an impressive 28.9. Therefore, he surely had an off-night.

However, in the fourth quarter, Ant-Man really had Murray in a hold. When Denver needed the 27-year-old to take over the scoring responsibility, he was restricted to just six points in the entire quarter. As a result, the Nuggets fell short of the target and ended up losing their chances of repeating the last year’s script.

To his credit, Ant-Man had all the reasons to make the audacious claim because he helped his team get the much-needed win.
