After finally getting their fair share of media coverage from ESPN, the Minnesota Timberwolves hosted old friend Patrick Beverley, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks at the Target Center for a late Friday night tilt in downtown Minneapolis. The Wolves controlled the first half of play, but lost the third quarter 36-13, a fatal hole they couldn’t dig themselves out of.

A valiant 4th quarter effort made it a contest, but Milwaukee flew home early this morning with a 112-107 win. While the game was plenty entertaining, it was Pat Bev’s comments on social media afterward that kept people buzzing all night long.

Patrick Beverley wasn’t particularly impactful in the Milwaukee Bucks’ five-point win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday. He was his usual, aggravator self though, getting in the face of every Wolves player he matched up with throughout the night.

When the final buzzer sounded, Bev chipped in 4 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 block. He also committed three fouls (in just 15 minutes of play) and finished with a -13 plus/minus. But, the Bucks won so Pat Bev got the last laugh.

Shortly after the game wrapped up, Beverley took to social media with his former head coach Chris Finch in his cross hairs. Apparently, Finch didn’t find him after the game to shake his hand, which he did do after the two teams met last time, a Timberwolves win.

This is classic Pat Bev right here. You love him when he’s on your team and hate him when he’s not. Is he really mad at Chris Finch? No, does he hope to rile up the Timberwolves fan base and get a few more listens on his podcast this week? Yes.

Ultimately, Beverley is just a feisty competitor, the type that anyone who likes basketball should be able to appreciate. But since he’s no longer in Wolves colors and he’s taking shots at our head coach, go ahead and dive into the replies.

Unfortunately, last night’s matchup was the last time the Timberwolves play the Bucks this season, barring a rematch in the NBA Finals. With both Pat Bev and the Timberwolves still seeking their first NBA Championship, there’s plenty of motivation on both sides to get there.
