Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards achieved a stunning feat in his team’s 124-107 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday.

Edwards, 20, became the youngest player in NBA history to shoot 10 three-pointers, breaking Kyrie Irving’s record from 2015 (when Irving was 22). This also marks a franchise record.

The Timberwolves youngster finished the game with 38 points on 10-of-14 attempts from beyond the arc, his second-highest performance of the season (he had 48 points against the Warriors on November 10). No one has hit more from beyond the arc in an NBA game this season, not even the new three-point king, Stephen Curry.

As if this achievement wasn’t enough, Edwards joined a select list of players with 2,000 points in his first NBA games. He is just the seventh player to do so, behind Carmelo Anthony, Luka Doncic, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, LeBron James and Zion Williamson (per SportsCenter).
