INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Anthony Edwards celebrated a milestone moment by scoring 37 points and leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 129-120 victory at Indiana on Sunday afternoon.

Edwards became the fourth-youngest player in NBA history to reach the 2,500-point mark on his first basket of the game.

Oshae Brissett had a season-high 22 points and matched his career high with 13 rebounds for Indiana. The Pacers have lost six straight.

Minnesota never trailed after using a 13-0 second-quarter run to take a 56-44 lead.
