Added the video to the thread, please have the video ready when making this kind of thread.

In any case, super lame that this was called a charge. The defender's feet were not set when Anthony Edwards took off. That isn't how charges work.

I'm not even a Timberwolves fan and that pissed me off. How you let some no-name try hard wipe that off the board with a Steve Wojciechowski flop is beyond me.

Yea and Ant didn't have contact with his chest or anything, mostly with hands that were in the air and not vertical. Refs ruining history for the millionth time. This was a blocking foul, and1.

This is the defensive equivalent of James Harden jumping into people with an awkward unnatural shooting motion. The league would do well to "clarify" away this type of thing.

The defender's momentum was still carrying him forward when Edwards was already off the floor. Rough that it was called a charge. Helluva play by Edwards.

Insane dunk. Curious about Edwards extended arm as well as the defender’s foot placement.

Not only was Edwards already in the air, defender can't put their hands up to "protect yourself" like that. That's straight up foul on defense.

Did Minny still have their challenge? Because if that's the case, I blame the coach. Should have counted.

Because Vincent stopped Edwards' flight with his arms and it is questionable whether Edwards would've even made contact with his body if Gabe Vincent didn't put his hands on Edwards.

Ref made it all about him. Robbed us of a fantastic dunk. You let that go 10/10 times

You cannot slide under an offensive player once they leave the ground.

They inbounded almost immediately, gave Minnesota no time to challenge. Just a really bad sequence by that referee.

I thought Finch should have pulled the trigger, but it's hard on such a bang bang play.
