#NBATopShotThis: Edwards shows off handles and throws down the hammer

In his rookie season, Anthony Edwards has provided us with plenty of highlights.

The No. 1 pick of the 2020 NBA Draft is the owner to probably multiple "Dunk of the Year" plays this season. Against the Kings in Sacramento, he did more of the same, throwing down multiple jams.

This one stood out as he showcased his handles before spinning out and throwing down a two-handed uncontested hammer:

Edwards finished with a game-high 28 points while also recording four rebounds, three assists and three steals on 11-for-21 shooting from the field. He was one of six players to score in double figures as the Timberwolves beat the Kings 134-120 in the first of two games between both teams in Sacramento.

The victory helps Minnesota break a tie with Houston for the worst record in the league.
