Memphis Grizzlies move on to 2nd round with Game 6 win in Minnesota

The Memphis Grizzlies came into Game 6 looking to close out the Minnesota Timberwolves on the road

They haven’t been in a close-out game before, as this was an opportunity to win their first playoff series.

The Grizzlies had a tall task ahead of them, as the Timberwolves have proven themselves to be a talented team that gives them fits with their tenacity and high-powered offense.

Both squads kicked off the game with a high-powered attack from the 3-point line. Desmond Bane and Dillon Brooks led the charge for the Grizzlies there

The Timberwolves threw punches back from downtown with Anthony Edwards and Jaden McDaniels

Edwards, in particular, was a handful offensively — as he scored 16 first-quarter points.

The Grizzlies ended the first quarter down 29-28. Good news though, Jaren Jackson only had 1 foul in the quarter.

The second quarter started with the Timberwolves going with a bit of no-KAT minutes. With that, it led to a Greg Monroe sighting
