Another protester tried to halt the fourth playoff game between Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Centre. During the third quarter of the match, a woman named Sasha Zemmel of St. Louis jumped over the T-Wolves owner Glen Taylor’s courtside seat to protest over the treatment of animals.

A press release issued by Direct Action Everywhere confirmed Zemmel as one of their members and asserted the accusation that Taylor's farm of mass-killing chickens during an avian flu outbreak with a method known as "ventilation shutdown plus," where the factory has cut off the air of an industrial chicken shed and introduced "some combination of heat, steam and/or carbon dioxide gas."

The group has also demanded that the sale of the Timberwolves from Taylor to Alex Rodriguez and Marc Lore should be expedited. They also want Taylor to donate $11.3 million in federal subsidies to public health charities and animal sanctuaries.

KAT drops 33 points and 17 rebounds 

Whereas in the game, Karl Anthony Towns had an incredible performance as he scored 33 points with 14 rebounds and three assists while shooting 8-17 from the field and 3-5 from the deep. KAT had sub-par nights in the previous two games but came back strongly to level the series 2-2. 

After the match Towns talked about how he was just playing his natural game. He said, “Just taking a chill pill, calming down and understanding the next game, there's another chance. Even after everything, you still only win the game by one. It just shows you the margin of error in this game and then the playoffs, especially when you're playing a team like this".
