The Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Phoenix Suns in four games to go to the Western Conference playoffs.  

The Timberwolves' 56-24 regular season record was their best since 2003-04. For the first time since 2004, Minnesota made its third consecutive playoff berth.  

The Timberwolves-Nuggets series begins Saturday.  

Minnesota averaged 31.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 6.3 assists against the Suns led by Anthony Edwards.  

Edwards scored 40 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 assists in the series-clinching Game 4 triumph over Phoenix.  

ESPN Stats & Information says he became the second 22-year-old with 40 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists in a series-clinching win, after Magic Johnson in the 1980 NBA Finals. 

Minnesota won the series almost 20 years to the day of its last postseason win on April 30, 2004.
