Minnesota Timberwolves Overpower Grizzlies in Game 1
The Minnesota Timberwolves are clicking at the right time and the momentum they have may be the best they've seen in almost 20 years.
Minnesota carried that momentum into the Western Conference Playoffs as they really handled the Memphis Grizzlies throughout most of Game 1.
The Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Memphis Grizzzlies on the road 130-117 on Saturday.
Anthony Edwards continued his dominance as he was unstoppable at times, putting in 36 points, 6 assists and 2 rebounds.
Minnesota also benefitted from some crucial stops down the stretch and 29 points from Karl-Anthony Towns along with 23 from Malik Beasley off the bench.
Ja Morant did score 32 for Memphis and containing him is key for Minnesota moving forward, but T-Wolves head coach Chris Finch has to be happy with the defense effort when it counted the most.
Additionally, it is going to be so important for the Wolves to get the same energy and effort from their bench in Game 2, as road games in the playoffs are determined a lot of times by the "others".
Game 2 is set for Tuesday in Memphis before the series will shift back to Minnesota for Game 3 on Thursday.
