Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards throws down incredible dunk — but it doesn’t count

Minnesota Timberwolves youngster Anthony Edwards put down one of the most ferocious dunks of the 2021-22 NBA season in the fourth quarter against the Miami Heat on Wednesday, but it didn’t count.

Edwards made a nifty backdoor cut and got the bounce pass on the wing. As he was driving to the hoop, he was met by guard Gabe Vincent a few steps from the circle in the key. Edwards decided to baptize Vincent and put him on the poster.

Edwards jumped right through Vincent and slammed the ball home.

However, he was called for an offensive foul as Vincent was stepping in front to take the charge. The dunk didn’t count and the 2020 No. 1 overall pick was thwarted of two key points.
