Dillon Brooks and Desmond Bane scored 23 points each and the visiting Memphis Grizzlies used another fourth-quarter comeback to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 114-106 in Game 6 and win their Western Conference first-round series on Friday.

The Grizzlies, who trailed by as many as 13 points in the third quarter, outscored the Timberwolves 40-22 in the fourth, adding to two other victories in which they overcame double-digit deficits.

Jaren Jackson Jr. added 18 points and 14 rebounds, Brandon Clarke contributed 17 points and 11 rebounds, Ja Morant had 17 points and 11 assists and Tyus Jones scored 10 for the second-seeded Grizzlies, who advance to face the third-seeded Golden State Warriors.

The Grizzlies got as close as three points before Jordan McLaughlin had a basket and two assists to help Minnesota take a 91-84 lead.

Brooks’ 3-pointer pulled Memphis even at 97 before Edwards made two free throws to put Minnesota back in front.
