How to Watch the Timberwolves vs. Grizzlies Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs

Here’s how to watch Game 1 of the first-round matchup between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Memphis Grizzlies.

The NBA Playoffs have come, and on Saturday, April 16, there will be a full day of action. Game 1 between the No. 7 Minnesota Timberwolves and the No. 2 Memphis Grizzlies is the second game on the schedule.

Minnesota had the Western Conference’s seventh-best record, but they had to earn it in a play-in tournament. The Timberwolves defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 109-104 despite star Karl-Anthony Towns’ poor effort and fouling out. Minnesota has already qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2018.

The Timberwolves will face a young Grizzly club that has ruled the season so far. While it was a team effort, it’s difficult to overlook Ja Morant’s performance. Morant averaged 27.4 points, 6.7 assists, and 5.7 rebounds in 57 games while shooting 49.3% from the field and 34.4 percent from beyond the arc.

Here’s how to watch Game 1 of Minnesota’s first-round series against Memphis.
