Minnesota Timberwolves troll Grizzlies with epic tweet after win

On 9 November 2021, the Grizzlies overcame the Timberwolves 125-118 in overtime. Ja Morant scored 33 points and reserve Brandon Clarke had 20 as the Grizzlies came back from a 16-point deficit to take the W.

After the game, the Memphis Grizzlies Twitter account trolled the Timberwolves by posting a Wheel Of Fortune-inspired meme. The graphic showed the Timberwolves name spelled out with one particular letter missing. Host Vanna White could be seen holding the letter L, representing the L (loss) the Timberwolves had just been given.

They captioned the post “solve the puzzle” and tagged the Timberwolves’ handle.

The tweet went down a storm at the time but, on Thursday night, the Timberwolves got their revenge. They reposted the original image but changed the letter L to a W, referencing their win over the Grizzlies. They captioned the excellent post: “Fixed that for you.”

Fans loving the back and forth

NBA fans noticed the Twitter beef between the Timberwolves and Grizzlies had been reignited, and were loving Minnesota’s response.

D’Angelo Russell stars

D’Angelo Russell was the star of the show on Thursday, scoring 23 of his 37 points in the fourth quarter. That included a tie-breaking three-pointer with 1 minute 23 seconds left to go in the fourth quarter.

“They can’t stop all of us. I think that’s the hardest thing for any team, to stop all three of us,” Russell said after the game. “If something’s not working, we see the next plan working.”

Karl Anthony-Towns added 22 points and 11 rebounds to hand the Grizzlies their first consecutive loss since 23 December. The Timberwolves host Philadelphia on Friday, while the Grizzlies visit Chicago on Saturday.
