Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards wanted all the smoke after his team lost Game 4 of their Western Conference semifinal series against the Denver Nuggets.

The Nuggets tied the series at 2-2 after beating the Timberwolves 115-107 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn.

After taking the lead late in the first quarter, the Nuggets never trailed again and led by as many as 18 points in the contest.

Edwards and Murray were both seen chirping after the final buzzer sounded.

During his postgame press conference, the Timberwolves star was asked about what he told Murray. Edwards said he urged Murray to keep the trash talk on high.

“I just told his a–, ‘We love that. Keep talking. That’s what we like.’ Well, I love it. He didn’t say nothing back, but I’m pretty sure he heard me. They heard me. We live for that,” Edwards told reporters.

Edwards finished with a game-high 44 points on 16/25 shooting from the field. But the 22-year-old didn’t get much help from his teammates. No other Timberwolves player scored more than 15 points.

The Nuggets got an MVP-level performance from Nikola Jokic, who tallied 35 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists. Aaron Gordon had a near-perfect scoring outing with 27 points on 11/12 shooting. Murray had 19 points and 8 assists.
