The Timberwolves’ most recent game against the Jazz was chippy throughout the contest — so much so that Jimmy Butler felt compelled to weigh in about it on social media.
Butler — who last posted a tweet back in 2016, didn’t play in the game — as he’s been recovering from a meniscus injury. He did, however, support his teammates on Twitter, and also took a shot at the Jazz in the process.
The game got chippy in the fourth quarter when Jeff Teague put a cheap shot on Ricky Rubio, using his hip to send the former Wolves guard into the sideline. Teague was hit with a flagrant-2 foul and promptly ejected.
During that time, though, Jae Crowder and Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau got into it, which resulted in the two getting double-technicals.
Butler weighed in about the sequence of events after the game — taking a shot at Crowder, and supporting Teague.
That game must have really left an imprint for Butler to break his silence to talk about it.
