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,

combining for 23 points and 5 three’s in the first period. 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.
