It was a thunderous dunk by Towns, but the end results weren’t good for the Timberwolves, who are now 7-11 on the season and on a two-game losing streak.
In 28 minutes of action against the Nuggets, Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 22 points and seven rebounds. He was in foul trouble much of the third quarter, which was a big reason why the Timberwolves lost the game.
Minnesota is now 3-2 since the Jimmy Butler trade. Towns and the Timberwolves made a solid run in the fourth quarter to erase a double-digit deficit, but that wasn’t enough, as Denver won by a final score of 103-101. Derrick Rose scored 20 points off the bench and was a big spark in the comeback. The former MVP also dished out four assists.
Towns and the Timberwolves will look to snap their two-game losing streak on Friday when they take on the Brooklyn Nets in Brooklyn. Minnesota needs to go on a winning streak if they want to climb back in the Western Conference standings.
