Minnesota Timberwolves coach Chris Finch has heaped the praise on guard Anthony Edwards ahead of Tuesday's Game 5 clash with the Grizzlies in Memphis.
Minnesota can be backed at 21/10 to secure the win in the Money Line and claim a 3-2 series lead, while Memphis are 10/11 with a -6.0 handicap in the Point Spread.
The Timberwolves, who had to come through the play-in tournament to reach the playoffs, won the first meeting comfortably but third seeds Memphis responded by winning back-to-back games to take a series lead.
Minnesota edged a tight encounter to win by one point in Game 4, leaving the series finely poised heading into the fifth meeting at the FedExForum in Memphis.
Second-year guard Edwards, 20, has been key to Minnesota's strong season and he has raised his game in the playoffs, his first taste of postseason action.
Edwards is averaging 24.8 points-per-game after four playoff games, up on his regular season average, with 4.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
Finch has been delighted with Edwards' displays against Memphis and praised the youngster for his mentality and leadership qualities.
"He's just pretty unfazed from play to play, game to game," said Finch, via the Pioneer Journal. "[He] stays extremely confident regardless of what's going on or what just happened.
"Whether it's a mistake in a certain possession or bad quarter, bad half, bad game, it doesn't matter. He bounces back with the same attitude every single time."
The winner of the series between the Timberwolves and Grizzlies will go on to face either Golden State Warriors or Denver Nuggets in the second round. The Dubs hold a 3-1 series lead ahead of their Game 6 meeting on Wednesday.
