Wolves – Clippers: Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell send Minnesota to the playoffs!

After three years of scarcity, the wolves are back in the playoffs! The franchise was perfectly prepared for this deadline by winning a real fight against the more experienced Clippers who had a role in the final chapter. But even though Karl-Anthony Towns had six fouls, the hosts found the resources to defeat California in the big late game.

Led by a quarter later (20-26), Wolves responded well in the second quarter to run a short header at break (53-51) despite Karl-Anthony Towns at 0/7 on shots and already…four personal fouls. Also clumsy so far is Paul George’s wide awakening by scoring 15 points in the third period, including three rockets from afar, to allow Los Angeles to reclaim the advantage this term (78-84).

A 3-point basket at the bell from owner Beasley allowed Minnesota to finish on a better note in the period when the Clippers clearly gave the feeling of taking the upper hand on the trial. While Patrick Beverly doubled down on good “shots” in the game, Wolves looked a bit weak as Jaden McDaniels struggled to finish the circuit on several occasions.

The sixth violation of Karl Anthony Towns!

Seven minutes into the end, the locals had already dropped three possessions (86-93) when the Cat made their sixth foul and had to rejoin the bench, head down. The end of clap for wolves? never. His premature exit would have the opposite effect on the course of the game. Anthony Edwards rose a little more in temperature, in penetration or in three-pointers, and was well imitated by D’Angelo Russell, author of the award-winning mega-shot First Intent to Turn.

Both men will carry the two men in a 16-2 match to turn the tide of the match. Paul George might have returned a few shots from distance, the Clippers fired up in the attack and they were stymied by the intensity spread up front. The final victory for the Wolves over the “Beat LA” chants from the audience who had just been waiting for it.

What to remember

The wolves are back in the playoffs. And so Chris Finch and his squad validate their regular season that featured the franchise’s best record (56% win) since 2018, the last qualifying date in the playoffs under Tom Thibodeau and Jimmy Butler. The Minnesota franchise proved a bunch of early season forecasters wrong.

The severity of Patrick Beverly! Despite his lack of skill in attack, he deserves a mention at the peaks. While he was one of the youngest players on Earth, he finished base as the best player in the game. Facing his former team, he was acting like the plague we know, trying to cause a technical foul in front of Marcus Morris (the referees signed a double technical foul before awarding him…) or by stealing a crucial ball to Reggie Jackson at the last minute. Qualifying, Wolves owe, in part, their intensity in this game and this season.

From foolishness to free throws. The two teams didn’t really shine in terms of skill in the game, requiring the intensity of the playoffs. But the two teams, who each made nearly 30 fouls, also didn’t shine on the throw line, with Minnesota still trailing 14 points on the way.

tops/swings

Paul George. Despite significant skill problems in the second quarter in particular (0/6), the winger held 15 points in the third inning. The author of Whole Walk, he may have benefited from attacking the Circle a little more.

Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell. The Attack Wolves champions took over perfectly while they were out of their minds. The playmaker excelled with his surround game as the linebacker alternated between long-range shooting and physical circle attacks.

Cities of Karl Anthony. A terrible match for the interior who made at least four absolutely ridiculous mistakes, in her struggle for rebounds with Ivica Zubak or Paul George. Frustrated by the whistles, he was never able to get into his match.

The match made by A… “GLUE GIRL”

A surreal and unprecedented scene at the end of the second quarter. A woman called herself to the ground to try… stick to the ground with strong glue. He is believed to be an activist who wanted to reveal the role of Glen Taylor’s company that owns the Wolves in slaughtering millions of chickens.
