The Minnesota Timberwolves just wet the bed on live television. They were able to build a 25-point lead not once, but twice on the Memphis Grizzlies only for them to let it slip away and lose by nine.

Things were looking promising early for the Timberwolves as they looked poised to take control of the series with a 26-point first half lead. Patrick Beverley even clowned Grizzlies star Ja Morant on a couple of plays as they seemed ready to run away with the win on their home floor. That had onlookers LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma impressed.

But things took a turn once the Grizzlies flexed their collective muscles for a game-shifting comeback. Memphis used 21-0 run and outscored their opponents 37-12 in the fourth quarter to completely upend the Timberwolves.

Karl-Anthony Towns was inexplicably gun-shy throughout the game, prompting Jusuf Nurkic to point it out on Twitter. The Timberwolves big man had just four attempts on the night, with only one in the entire second half.

Ja Morant wasn't his usual self on the night. But his Grizzlies teammates stepped up in a big way as Desmond Bane piled on 26 points while Brandon Clarke made play after play in the fourth to crush the T-Wolves' spirit down the stretch.

The Grizzlies have now seized control of the series once again and have a chance to put their stamp on the matchup with a win in Game 4. With such high-powered offenses in today's NBA erasing a 20+ point lead is nothing. Memphis proved that twice on Thursday night.
