Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns came up big late to help lead his team to a thrilling victory over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night.
Towns nailed two crucial three-pointers in the final minutes of the fourth quarter to help lift the Timberwolves to a 98-95 win. With the score tied at 93-93, Towns connected on a 26-foot three-pointer with 1:22 remaining in the fourth quarter to give the Timberwolves a 96-93 lead. He then knocked down another three-pointer with just under a minute remaining to put the game out of reach.
Towns finished the night with 24 points, 15 rebounds and four assists. He was the catalyst for the Timberwolves' late surge, scoring nine of their final 11 points to secure the win.
The Timberwolves were down by as many as 10 points in the fourth quarter, but Towns and the rest of the team managed to rally for the win. The victory marked the team's fourth in their last five games.
Towns' heroics were key to the Timberwolves' victory, and he was praised by his teammates after the game.
“Karl-Anthony was huge for us tonight,” said Timberwolves guard D'Angelo Russell. “He came up with two huge shots late in the game that really put us over the top.”
Towns' performance against the Warriors was one of his best of the season, and he will need to continue to be a reliable source of offense if the Timberwolves hope to make a playoff run.
The Timberwolves will look to build on their momentum when they face the Houston Rockets on Monday night.
