The Minnesota Timberwolves came into game four of the Western Conference Finals facing elimination as they quickly went down 3-0 in their series with the Dallas Mavericks. Not many people were expecting that to happen as the Timberwolves came into the series as the favorite, but the Mavericks have looked great. Minnesota did find a way to avoid the sweep on Tuesday as they won 105-1oo, and head coach Chris Finch was proud of how his team fought.

“We weathered a lot of foul trouble out there, which was frustrating to say the least,” Chris Finch said after the game, according to an article from ESPN. “Credit to our guys. They found a way to win the game. It was a lot like Games 1 and 2, and we were able to get it done tonight.”

Finch loves his guys, and his team loves him. Mike Conley talked about his head coach after the game, and he revealed that the passion that Finch shows was able to provide a spark to the Timberwolves.

“To have him be on the sideline but behind the bench for the majority of these playoffs, you forget the impact he can have,” Mike Conley said. “When your coach is up getting technicals and yelling and when you see him hobbling around to do it, it’s impressive. It lit a fire on all of us.”

Chris Finch and his Timberwolves got the win in game four, but they still have a lot of work to do. They still have to win three more games in a row to advance to the NBA Finals. Next up is game five on Thursday back at home.
