A look at how furious Wolves fans are right now

Lots of fans saying "fire Thibs" after that loss.
Publish date:

In a fight for their playoff lives, the Wolves got beat at home by the tanking Memphis Grizzlies last night. 

"Hard to explain," said Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau. 

Ya' think?

The miserable loss pushed the Wolves to 8th place in the Western Conference, and fans are sick and tired of watching their bumpy ride to the bottom of the playoff race. 

A tweet from the Timberwolves showing the final score received 266 replies, many of them saying "fire Thibs" and plenty more featuring a Jimmy Butler "what the f*** was that?" GIF. 

WCCO's Mark Rosen used an old Gary Gaetti euphemism to describe the loss, saying it's tough to win with two hands around your throat. 

As painful as child birth? Eh....that's a stretch, but the next few responses aren't. 

Fortunately, the Wolves have two more cupcake games this week against the Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks, so they have a chance to redeem themselves beginning tomorrow night.
