NBA Twitter couldn’t believe another protester made it onto the court during the Grizzlies-Timberwolves NBA Playoffs series, but some see it as a good omen.
Just call this the playoffs of protests for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
For the third time this postseason, a protester tried to disrupt a T-Wolves game. First, during the play-in, a woman tried to glue her wrists to the court. During Game 1 of the first round, another woman chained herself to the basket.
Then late on Saturday night, a woman ran onto the court, but she didn’t get far enough to cause much of a disturbance. She was swiftly tackled by security and hauled away.
Another person had security swarming on the sideline as well.
Another Timberwolves protester set off NBA Twitter
Past protesters have targeted Timberwolves‘ owner Glen Taylor over allegations of animal abuse. The first two to disrupt Minnesota games wore shirts saying “Glen Taylor Roasts Animals Alive.”
It wasn’t immediately clear if the ruckus caused on Saturday was from the same animal rights protest group or not.
Security has been heightened since the first protesters appeared but it seems they’re determined to make a statement at every Timberwolves game they can.
