What's the saying, don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened? Even though the Timberwolves 2023-2024 season is over, there are so many amazing plays, interviews, awards, and stats that made this season so incredible and are worth reminiscing on! This season has been a rollercoaster ride of excitement, chaos and anticipation so, we pulled together the Timberwolves best moments that made us cheer, laugh, and love our home team more than before! Let's get into the madness and celebrate the best of the best from our favorite Timberwolves! 🏀✨

Fan Girl’s 7 Best Moments from the Timberwolves:

1. seven game winning streak

In the regular season, the Timberwolves started off kinda rough with a 1–2 record but plot twist… they went on a 7-game winning streak after that ⚡️.  Winning passes and dunks alike, their series of Ws definitely set them up for success this season, landing them in the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend as the surprise best team of the Western Conference with a 39–16 record! 

2. Anything Anthony Edwards

You would be here for hours if we told you all of the best moments from Anthony Edwards, so we picked just a couple of our favs.

  • This game winning Block against the Indiana Pacers:

  • Ant literally taking flight to dunk on the Dallas Mavericks in game 3:

  • Being an All Star Game selection and an All-NBA second team player

  • His banter → telling Charles Barkely to “Bring ya ass” after saying he hasn't been to Minnesota in 20 years

3. First Ever Franchise Playoff Sweep Against the Suns

In the first round of the playoffs against the Phoenix Suns, the Timberwolves breezed through with a 4-0 sweep, easy as pie. The series win was their first playoff victory in 20 years! Oh and also their first-ever sweep in franchise history 🤯

4. Rudy Gobert Winning NBA Defensive Player of the Year

Becoming an NBA Defensive Player of the Year is legit in itself, but what makes this a best moment is that this is Rudy's fourth time wining Defensive Player of the Year... 👑 We love that he's basically just a brick wall that turns opponents' shots into dreams/delusions.

5. The 20-point comeback in Game 7 Against the Nuggets

Everything changed in the third quarter of the second-round of the playoff series against the defending champs, the Denver Nuggets when the Wolves dug their way out of a 20 point hole! Or “Then it went to a special place in the third quarter,” as Coach Chris Finch described it. The game wasn't pretty but that didn’t matter because the team showed that they are here to play by any chaotic means necessary. Karl-Anthony Towns' saying “That was Wolves basketball." ✨

6. Naz Reid winning 6th man of the year

  • 🏀 NBA Sixth Man of the Year: league's best performing player for his team coming off the bench as a substitute.

  • The NBA doesn’t just hand out this award to anyone, Reid is all too deserving given his mind-blowing skills as a center and his ability to locate his teammates for passes, perfectly. If winning this award doesn’t say enough about how incredible Naz Reid is, maybe a local Minneapolis tattoo artist offering Naz Reid tattoos for $20 does- another best moment!

7. Historic Stats

  • 56 regular season wins, the second-most in franchise history

  • Advancing in the playoffs for the second time in Timberwolves history by beating the defending champion Nuggets

  • Being #1 in defense in the NBA this season

  • Selling out every ticket available for all 41 regular-season home games, for the first time since Target Center opened in 1990

We hate to see the Timberwolves' 2023-2024 season end after coming so far but on the bright side, this was one of the most fun and skillful seasons to watch in the team's history! Filled with insane blocks, sideline shenanigans, game winning threes, new team records, and more 😆. These were just a few of the team's best moments! Now we can start to look forward to what more the Timberwolves will bring next season because they are just getting started! While we do have to say “goodbye” to this season, it’s a “see you later” to the excitement and thrill the Timberwolves bring. So until then, GO WOLVES! ✨⛹️‍♂️
