Minnesota is bad. After waste an advantage of 20 points on the third match against Grizzlies, lot of people were thinking that the moral of Timberwolves was bruised. The reality is that it did not like it at all.
The guys of Chris Finch opened the match with energy and persuasion; so much so that at the half of the second quarter they were 15 points ahead and on the third quarter they had 12 points of advantage. But one thing that Memphis has shown us is that they always back. And this time it was not less. They were getting points on a slowly way and with 6 minutes left of the match, they were just one point down. The remember of Game 3 was there. However, this time was different. Minnesota knew how to keep calm and finally they got the victory.
“Simply I took a tranquilizer pill, I calme and I understood that in the next match we will have another opportunity”, said Towns, who after a difficult night on the last game completed the top annotation of his career at playoffs with 33 points. Also he did 14 rebounds and 3 assists.
The performance of the pivot helped Wolves to fight for a win on this amazing series between both teams. The truth is that they are a talented team with a good Anthony Edwards that night (24 points). Meanwhile, other 4 teammates of Anthony had double annotation digits. Towns understands that this victory to the limit make it clear that they play to the limit too.
“Even after of all the job done, just win for one point. Simply show you the little margin of error that you have on a playoffs match like this, especially when you play against a rival like Memphis”. Said Towns on the post-game interview.
Beyond the defeat, Taylor Jenkins was very annoying with the referees. The head coach of the Tennessee´s team was very clear on the conference room about the job of the referees during this fourth game of playoffs. “I never seen a match refereed on a unconsciously and arrogantly. I will assume any fine that arrives”.
Following with the individual performances, the best of Memphis was Desmond Bane with 34 points and 8 out of 11 on triples. Dillon Brooks made 24 points. The fifth match will play on the home of Grizzlies.
