A first-round series highlighted by dramatic Memphis Grizzlies comebacks, poster dunks, foul trouble and a healthy serving of trash talk

came to a close in Game 6 on Friday night, as Memphis eliminated the Minnesota Timberwolves 114-106 with yet another impressive rally.

The Grizzlies advance to the conference semifinals for the first time since 2015 and will host the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 on Sunday in Memphis (ABC, 3:30p ET).

For the third time in the series, the Grizzlies overcame a double-digit lead entering the fourth quarter

According to ESPN Stats & Information research, they are the first team in NBA history to log three such wins in a single postseason

As Memphis ate away at the deficit and took the lead in the closing minutes, a pall fell over the long-suffering Timberwolves

crowd at Target Center that just witnessed one of the most historic collapses in NBA history in Game 4 less than a week ago

Grizzlies guard Desmond Bane, the most dangerous shooter in the series, hit a 3-pointer with three minutes remaining to give Memphis its first lead of the second half
