Ja Morant trolled the Minnesota Timberwolves following the Memphis Grizzlies’ epic Game 3 comeback victory.
The Minnesota Timberwolves had to be feeling well entering the fourth quarter, as they had a 98-percent chance of winning Game 3 of their first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies. Instead, they were outscored by 25 points and lost 104-95 to trail Memphis 1-2 in the series.
During the game, the TNT broadcast played a clip of Karl-Anthony Towns talking on the sidelines early in the game, who confidently said “yeah, we in Minnesota now.”
After the game, Grizzlies star Ja Morant found the clip on Twitter, quote retweeted it with the caption, “we in Minnesota now,” with an added smiley face emoji.
Ja Morant buries state of Minnesota after Grizzlies win vs. Timberwolves
Unfortunately for Towns, that soundbite will be the subject of memes in the lead-up to Game 4 on Saturday, Apr. 23. Certainly does not help when Morant used the clip to troll the entire Timberwolves team.
To say it was shocking to see the Grizzlies win was an understatement. Morant did not have a good shooting performance for Game 3, as he was just 5-for-18 from the field in 41 minute of playing time. Despite that, Morant recorded 16 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists to secure a triple-double.
As for Towns, he scored just eight points, grabbed five rebounds, blocked five shots and was called for five fouls in 33 minutes.
Morant is right. The Grizzlies are in Minnesota now, and they managed to take away a Game 3 victory for the Timberwolves.
