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.

The Grizzlies move on to the next round, after a 114-106 victory.

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.

Desmond Bane and Dillon Brooks led the charge for the Grizzlies there, combining for 23 points and 5 three’s in the first period.

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.

There was entirely too much Dillon Brooks — but also no other creator showed much willingness to shoot. The half ended with the Grizzlies down 52-49.

The Grizzlies ended the quarter down 84-74. The Grizzlies kicked off the quarter with some 3’s from Tyus Jones and Jaren Jackson Jr.
