Former Purdue star Carsen Edwards embarrassed two NBA superstars with filthy dunk
Purdue fans are accustomed to seeing Carsen Edwards embarrass defenders on a regular basis. But it’s still a relatively new thing for NBA viewers, who have only seen the former Boilermaker in action for half of the season.
Edwards showed exactly what he’s capable of doing this week as the NBA is restarting its season in the Orlando/Disney World Bubble this month.
In an exhibition game between the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets, Edwards took it upon himself to show off his skill and athleticism against two of the top players in league. In the third quarter of the game, the ex-Boilermaker blew past Russell Westbrook and threw down a filthy dunk over James Harden.
If a crowd was in attendance, it would’ve erupted. Below is the video:

Edwards had plenty of highlight-reel moments and performances at the college level while in West Lafayette. But as an NBA rookie, he’s still getting his feet wet.
That dunk is just an example of what he can do when he’s in a rhythm.
Edwards finished the game with 19 points, a team high for Boston’s third scrimmage. The Rockets defeated the Celtics 137-112.
