With a 95-92 win over the Timberwolves last night, the Grizzlies snapped an 11-game losing streak that included even more turmoil than just the defeats – Marc Gasol complaining about getting benched, David Fizdale getting fired, Gasol getting scrutiny as a coach killer, Mike Conley facing a longer timeline for his injury and even an ownership shakeup.
Gasol was was ecstatic as he began his post-game on-court interview:
It’s the happiest win of a regular-season game that I ever had.
Many players are caught up in emotion only moments after a game. But as they talk to a reporter, they usually regain their composure.
Not Gasol, who closed his interview with:
Overall, we won. F— it.
Gasol knows he shouldn’t swear on live television. That he was too overwhelmed to stop himself shows how big this win truly was to him.
