One of the biggest news stories of the past week was the play-in win for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The T-Wolves took down the Los Angeles Clippers and secured the seventh seed in the West.
This was a major success for the squad that has only been to the playoffs one other time over the last 17 years.
As you can expect, they were very excited.
According to the NBA, some of them were too excited.

The league just fined Wolves star Patrick Beverley $30,000 dollars for his over-the-top celebration and comments following Tuesday’s big win.
The association hasn’t said exactly which “inappropriate statements” caused the fine but there were more than a few to choose from.
Will this cause Beverley to watch his mouth and mind his manners or will he only get more fired up if his team wins again?
Minnesota Versus Memphis
Now that they are seventh seed, the Timberwolves are set to face off against the Memphis Grizzlies.
This will be quite the competition, featuring two of the youngest, most explosive teams in the league.
You can expect some serious fireworks in the first round.
That is especially true because of Beverley, who has never been one to bite his tongue and hold back his opinions.
He was sharing his views about his team and their chances in the Western Conference with anyone who would listen on Tuesday night.
Beverley was sent to the Timberwolves from the Los Angeles Clippers.
At the time, he was ridiculed by many who said he was losing any chance at making the playoffs again.
Beverley and his squad proved them all wrong.
Minnesota had a terrific season that surpassed all expectations.
If they continue to win, he will continue to talk his talk.
