Timberwolves vs. Grizzlies
Timberwolves vs. Grizzlies

The Timberwolves may have celebrated like they won a championship after they defeated the Clippers earlier this week, but they just earned the right to play the Grizzlies in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

The Timberwolves are back in the postseason for the first time since 2018, while the Grizzlies are coming off a franchise-record tying season. Memphis finished 56-26, earning the second seed in the Western Conference.

Despite the fact that they finished seventh in the West and had to qualify via the Play-In Tournament, the Timberwolves will not be an easy opponent for the upstart Grizzlies. The teams split the season series at two games apiece, with the Wolves having a huge 43-point win over their first-round opponent back in November.
