It's been a tough season so far for Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Karl-Anthony Towns. Injuries and personal issues have slowed down the big man in his sixth season in the league but according to him, things are about to change once the second half of the 2020-21 NBA season starts.
“The way my game is going to be this second half, it's adjusted. It's going to be in a little different” Towns said (via Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic).
KAT: "The way my game is going to be this second half, it's adjusted. It's going to be in a little different."
Not saying specifics.

Now that's definitely exciting news for Timberwolves Fans.
The 25-year-old center has been in and out of the team's lineup this season. Towns initially nursed a wrist issue at the start of the season which sidelined him for a handful of games. Once he got back, he then tested positive for COVID-19 which forced him to quarantine for the majority of January and February of this year. He's also lost seven family members to the deadly virus, including his mother.
As the saying goes, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and this is certainly the case for the two-time All-Star. Prior to the break, Towns was able to suit up for 12 games and has been dropping 22 points per game and 10.9 rebounds with 1.7 blocks. If there will be any adjustments in his game, then his numbers are bound to come up even more, which is great news for the Wolves.
Unfortunately, it'll be a long road for KAT and his Wolves as his pack is still currently at the bottom of the West with a league-worst record of 7-29. Minnesota's second half of the season starts on Thursday as they host the New Orleans Pelicans.
