The Hawks' Twitter page late Wednesday night.

Hawks turn into huge Timberwolves fans on Twitter

The Hawks are huge Minnesota Timberwolves fans. At least they were Wednesday night.

The Hawks re-named their Twitter page as ‘Timberwolves’ #1 Fans’ because a Minnesota win over Denver meant the T-Wolves would earn a playoff spot and the Hawks would receive their first-round draft pick in the NBA draft.

The Hawks acquired the lottery-protected pick from Minnesota in February 2015 in a trade for Adreian Payne.

Minnesota beat Denver 112-106 in overtime and now the Hawks will have three first-round picks

And that made the Hawks really happy.
