While the Timberwolves had the advantage early, they were plagued by turnovers and went into the locker room down 49-47 at halftime.
The second half belonged to the Timberwolves as their bench stepped up for the third straight games. Jaylen Nowell scored 14 points off the pine for Minnesota helped the Wolves take a lead into the fourth quarter.
The Timberwolves opened the fourth quarter on a 10-3 run and a slam by Edwards helped Minnesota take a 12-point lead with just over six minutes to go.
Damian Lillard helped Portland make its move with a game-high 38 points, but the Timberwolves held on down the stretch to take home the victory.
The Timberwolves improved to 9-30 on the season and will head west for a Tuesday night matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers.
