Towns, Bjelica ignite late rally in Timberwolves win

Towns, Bjelica ignite late rally in Timberwolves win

This one, perhaps, wasn't as pretty as recent Wolves victories have been.

The 22-year-old wore a Stranger Things-themed kicks during Friday night's game against the visiting New York Knicks, and if you're thinking, "A shoe inspired by a horror-drama series starred on by kids is not good enough to wear", think again. The Wolves struggled to contain recent Knicks bench sensation Michael Beasley, for example.

The veteran point guard, Jarrett Jack delivered another solid performance just one game removed a triple-double. Eight Minnesota players scored in double figures and Karl-Anthony Towns led the club with 23 points, 15 rebounds, and nine assists in the 118-108 win. It was the team's sixth straight sellout, ninth overall this season. The Wolves have been on another level defensively and held each of their last seven opponents below 100 points before tonight. The winning streak isn't. Jack scored a season-high 18 points and dished out eight assists in 33 minutes.

NY was led by Tim Hardaway Jr. who returned from injury to score 16 points.

Kanter (12 rebounds) and Porzingis (10) recorded double-doubles for the Knicks.

The Wolves launched 27 3-pointers but only made 10 of them. But the Knicks (19-23), who lost for the ninth time in 11 games, got no closer.

The teams battled on near-even terms for three quarters, with the Timberwolves taking just an 87-86 lead into the final period. But Jeff Teague's three-pointer started a 12-4 run that put the Wolves up 20-19 on Crawford's three-pointer.

He opened the quarter with a 3-pointer that extended the margin to four points.

Statistically Speaking: The Timberwolves scored 64 points in the paint and tallied 21 second chance points. But the Wolves finished the quarter on a 6-0 run, pulling within 57-55 on Butler's dunk off a behind-the-back pass from Towns. The Clippers would've also needed to create another roster spot for the hypothetical incoming third Timberwolves player.
