KAT Continues To Roll
After an “off night” by his standards after putting up 20 points and nine rebounds in Tuesday’s win over the Thunder, Towns bounced back, finishing with 30 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks against the Mavericks on Friday night.
The one concern with Towns as of late is getting into foul trouble. On Tuesday, he was limited to just 24 minutes, and on Friday, he was limited to 30 minutes.
Going up against Anthony Davis, the Wolves will need Towns on the court if they want to come away with a win.
Wolves: Robert Covington (knee) is out. Derrick Rose (ankle) is questionable.
Pelicans: E’Twaun Moore (quadriceps) is questionable.
Wolves: PG – Teague, SG – Okogie, SF – Wiggins, PF – Gibson, C – Towns
Pelicans: PG – Payton, SG – Holiday, SF – Miller, PF – Randle, C - Davis
