The Minnesota Timberwolves are officially moving onto the playoffs after winning Tuesday night’s play-in game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
It was a huge win for the team that has become one of the most celebrated, thrilling young teams in the league.
Members of the T-Wolves couldn’t have been more excited after the victory.
That’s definitely true for Patrick Beverley, who celebrated the win as if it was a championship triumph.

Following the game, Beverley was seen parading around the court, tossing his jersey into the stands, hyping up the crowd, and shedding a few tears.
He has every reason to be pumped up – but the real work is still ahead for the team.
P Bev Is Back
You have to remember that people are always writing off Beverley.
Before playing in Minnesota, Beverley actually played alongside the rest of the Los Angeles Clippers.
He was traded away to Minnesota, a team that many people felt was still a dead-end with little playoff potential.
Because of his brash personality, Beverley has received a lot of flak from fans of the NBA and there were more than a few poking fun at his new home with the Timberwolves.
But Beverley swore the young team had the ability to go into the postseason.
Sure enough, he was right and the Timberwolves are now making their second playoff appearance in 17 years.
Their next challenge will be the Memphis Grizzlies, the red-hot second seed that will be their opponents in the first round.
The Clippers put up quite a fight but the Grizzlies will prove to be even harder.
Beverley and the Timberwolves have made it further than some people expected but now it’s time to step it up even more.
