The Minnesota Timberwolves have once again fallen victim to a protest. In the NBA Finals with the Memphis Grizzlies, an animal rights activist forced the game to be suspended with an adventurous act. The focus of the protest is Minnesota chief Glen Taylor.

Min a protest, an animal rights activist disrupted the game in the NBA Finals between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 19-year-old woman chained herself to a basketball hoop system – the game therefore had to be temporarily stopped in the second quarter. Security forces first removed the chain around her neck and led the woman out of the hall.

The woman was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and burglary. She belongs to a group of animal rights activists who are protesting against the conditions in the production facilities. Timberwolves co-owner Glen Taylor also owns livestock farms. With her T-shirt inscription (“Glen Taylor’s frying animals alive”), the woman criticized Taylor. The 80-year-old owns a chicken farm in Iowa, where 5.3 million animals are said to have been killed recently due to bird flu. The woman is said to belong to the animal protection organization Direct Action Everywhere, the organization tweeted.

A few days ago, there was already a similar act at a fight with the Timberwolves in the NBA: A woman had glued herself to the floor in protest. According to ESPN, she also belongs to the same animal welfare organization.

In the Bundesliga, the match between Eintracht Frankfurt and SC Freiburg was interrupted a week ago because two men had attached themselves to both posts of a goal in a protest. The men wore T-shirts that read: “Last Generation – Stop the fossil madness”.

Memphis is already under pressure in the playoffs

In the NBA Finals (best-of-seven mode), which began on Saturday, the Timberwolves achieved a major away win to start their series in the Eastern Conference against the Grizzlies. In particular, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Edwards had 130-117 strong performance – Towns had 29 points and 13 rebounds, Edwards was the match’s best scorer with 36 points. Except for two short periods in the second quarter, the visitors were not behind and put the Grizzlies under pressure before the second game on Tuesday. The team from Memphis around its star Ja Morant is theoretically a clear favorite against the Timberwolves, who only secured a play-off ticket in the play-in against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Philadelphia 76ers-Toronto Raptors 131-111 (76ers lead 1-0): 4-0, 5-4 – those were the only two goals the 76ers were trailing against the Toronto Raptors at the start of the series. After that, the team around the two stars Joel Embiid and Kyrie Irving took control. Embiid had a good 19 points and 15 rebounds as center, but the man of the match was Tyrese Maxey with 38 points for the 76ers. Harden had 22 points, Tobias Harris had 26 points. The Raptors were not defended against the many attacking opportunities. Isaac Bonga also appeared for Toronto for the first time in more than two months, but was unable to do much in less than three minutes and converted only two penalty throws

Western Conference and NBA

Dallas Mavericks – Utah Jazz 93:99 (Jazz lead 1: 0): Without their injured star Luka Doncic, the Dallas Mavericks lost the first playoff game of the NBA season to the Utah Jazz. The team led by national basketball player Maxi Kleber admitted a 93:99 in front of their own fans. Kleber’s comeback after his break due to ankle problems was defensively good and offensively expandable. Doncic may be back in the second match on Monday. The Mavericks cannot afford another defeat at home if they want to enter the second round of the playoffs for the first time since the championship with Dirk Nowitzki in 2011.

Golden State Warriors – Denver Nuggets 123: 107 (Warriors lead 1: 0): Won the opening and a comeback without the great pressure for Steph Curry: The series start against the Denver Nuggets went almost perfectly for the Golden State Warriors. The superstar returned to action for the first time since March 16 at 123: 107 after recovering from a foot injury. As an off-bench player, he scored 16 points, three rebounds and four assists in just over 21 minutes on the field. The Warriors had played under control in the second half and benefited from Jordan Poole’s strong performance, which had 30 points. The clumps around Nikola Jokic had no answer to the hosts’ many attacking options.
