Currently, the Wolves and Grizzlies are split at one game apiece.
One of the biggest issues from Tuesday night’s loss was foul trouble for Karl-Anthony Towns, as well as the Wolves giving up more than a dozen rebounds, which led to a 28-point loss — the largest margin of victory in NBA history in a playoff game.
“Happy we got one kind of like a homecourt advantage we garnered, you know, you know I’m not satisfied by the way we lost tonight,” Towns said on Tuesday’s loss. “So that’s personally for me, I always talk about Timberwolves basketball this or that. Tonight wasn’t that.”
However, hopes are high, and Minnesota had the day off Wednesday to re-plan and also regroup.
The Timberwolves announced a small number of additional tickets — visiting team and league hold tickets — for sale to Game 3 on Thursday morning.
The team urged fans to arrive at the game before 6 p.m., as an overflow crowd is expected. Additionally, the team is hosting a special happy hour from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. with half-off Anheuser-Busch products at the arena.
Tipoff for game three is set for 6:30 p.m. at Target Center. It will air on TNT.
