At home, the Minnesota Timberwolves had a 26-point lead in Game 3 against the Memphis Grizzlies. And yet, they lost the game 104-95 and are down 2-1 in the series.
NBA fans, media members, and Grizzlies players themselves went on Twitter to criticize the Wolves.

Grizzlies outscored the Timberwolves 50-16 in the last 15 minutes. On the road. With key guys playing poorly. Insane.

Two things from tonight:
1) Ja Morant first triple-double in Grizzlies playoff history
2) Largest playoff comeback in franchise history

Ten years ago this month, the Clippers came from 27 down to beat the Grizzlies. The Grizzlies just came from 26 down to beat the Timberwolves. Go. Crazy.

This is the most embarrassing moment of my life being a Timberwolves fan. Granted it’s only been 4 days but still. No heart. No fight.
