The Minnesota Timberwolves pulled off the upset in Game 4 to tie the NBA Playoffs first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies 2-2. It was a close one, but at the end, the Timberwolves won 119-118. That was the first time in the series that the winning team didn’t win by 9+ points.
Karl-Anthony Towns finally met expectations by finishing with 33 points, 14 rebounds, and three assists. Regarding the scoreboard, he was followed by Anthony Edwards with 24 points and Patrick Beverley with 17.
However, the biggest surprise was Jordan McLaughlin, who came off the bench and contributed with 16 points. He didn’t play at all in Game 3.
“Every day he steps on the court he makes an impact. It’s normal, it’s routine. We need someone like him, someone who comes off the bench and dominates the game,” Towns said about his teammate.

“Most of the times when I go to the rack, I’m getting bumps. I just got to worry about finishing the bucket instead of worrying about the guys with stripes on,” he said.
