Mentioned on ESPN's “SportsCenter” and recognized by strangers on Manhattan avenues, Brandon Caicedo is basketball's latest one-and-done who left college in search of fame and fortune. Virtually … Timberwolves brethren Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns went before him, but not like Caicedo
Khris Middleton was a surprise DNP, Brandon Ingram got hurt, and Russell Westbrook, Paul George, LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Karl-Anthony Towns all went off. Lakers 121, Spurs 113 – Brandon Ingram lasted just five minutes before leaving with a sprained left ankle and Josh Hart started the second half in his place, but Hart was dogged by foul trouble and only played 13 minutes.
The air cleared following the trade of star Jimmy Butler, the Minnesota Timberwolves are talking more and winning as a result. Karl-Anthony Towns scored 35 points, Andrew Wiggins added a season-high 26 points and Minnesota beat the Charlotte Hornets 121-104 on Wednesday night for its sixth victory in seven games. Towns tied a career high with six blocks and had 12 rebounds.
Karl-Anthony Towns scores 35 points, grabs 12 rebounds and stifles Charlotte's offense with a career high 6 blocks, and Jeff Teague sets his own career high with 18 assists as the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Charlotte Hornets, 121-104.
Karl-Anthony Towns and the Timberwolves got together in the locker room at halftime to address what needed to be fixed - all their defensive lapses that led to a big second quarter by the Rockets. Minnesota clamped down after that, and Houston had hardly any offense at all. A stingy defensive effort by Minnesota helped erase a 14-point halftime deficit, and the Timberwolves beat the Rockets 103-91 on Monday night.
