Chris Finch and the Minnesota Timberwolves played well this season and it looked pretty clear they were going to at least make the play-in games. Since they made the 7th seed in the Western Conference they will get to host the game on their home court. If they win they will take on Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the 2022 NBA Playoffs. They will take on the Los Angeles Clippers to secure that spot in the playoffs.
