Karl-Anthony Towns Does It Again, Wolves Crush Hornets
What a start for the season for Karl-Anthony Towns.
The Timberwolves center led Minnesota to a 121-99 win against the Hornets on Friday night in Charlotte.
Towns finished with a near triple-double of 37 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists in the win. What makes it more impressive is that the two-time All-Star center didn’t even play 28 minutes.
He shot 13-for-18 from the field and 4-for-7 from the 3-point line.
This comes two nights after Towns finished with 36 points and 14 rebounds in the team’s win over the Nets.
The Wolves are now 2-0 on the season.
Andrew Wiggins added 16 points. Josh Okogie led the second unit with 14 points. Jake Layman and Treveon Graham scored 12 points each.
This is the first time the Wolves have started the season 2-0 in four seasons.
More to come on this one, but you have to feel good if you’re a Wolves fan right now. After a so-so first half, the Wolves turned it up in the second half, outscoring the Hornets 45-25 in the third quarter.
The Wolves are back at it in their home opener on Sunday evening against the Miami Heat.
