It’s time for the Minnesota Timberwolves to win or go home.
The Memphis Grizzlies are up 3-2 against the Timberwolves in the first round of the playoffs and it all comes down to Friday night.
With a victory in Minnesota, the Grizzlies are moving onto the second round.
And that will put an end to Minnesota’s impressive, better-than-expected season.
But that’s not what the Timberwolves are planning on.
Anthony Edwards: "I'm looking forward to Friday because all the pressure is on. Know what I'm sayin? It's time to show up."

T-Wolves star Anthony Edwards is ready to go big or go home.
“I’m looking forward to Friday because all the pressure is on,” Edwards told the press.
“Know what I’m saying? It’s time to show up.”
He’s absolutely right about that: the Timberwolves have to show up in a huge way or else it’s all over.
Edwards Being Extra
If the Timberwolves do pull out a win on Friday night, Edwards will certainly be a part of that.
He’s been lighting up the scoreboard in this first round, averaging 24.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, and 3.3 assists.
Edwards has been a pivotal part of the team’s lineup since entering the league and has seemed ready to finally play in the postseason.
The team has been fighting hard to get into the playoffs.
They’ve come an incredibly long way in just a single season.
But they’ve also made some big missteps in the playoffs and made life harder for themselves.
On Tuesday night, the Grizzlies were able to eek out a win even though the Timberwolves had a double-digit lead at one point.
And that wasn’t the first time the Grizzlies won after trailing by a big margin.
Now it’s all come down to this: Edwards and his T-Wolves need to get it together and perform perfectly or else it’s all over.
