Wolves win seventh straight at home, 118-108 over Knicks

Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns accumulates league-best 35th double-double in Wednesday night win Towns' Near Triple-Double Leads Wolves Over Knicks
Noah Ferguson | 13 January, 2018, 12:14

Karl-Anthony Towns recorded game highs with 23 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists, helping the Timberwolves win a fourth straight game to begin a five-game homestand. "Now we're taking pride in our defense", Butler said.

So what if their seven-game streak of holding opponents under 100 points is over?

Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns (32) drives to the basket against New York Knicks center Enes Kanter (00) in the first half at Target Center. Taj Gibson added 17 points and six rebounds.

Tim Hardaway Jr., returning from a stress fracture in his leg, chipped in with 16 points, while Kristaps Porzingis had 17, Enes Kanter 16, Courtney Lee 14, Michael Beasley 13 and Kyle O'Quinn 12 for NY.

NY was led by Tim Hardaway Jr. who returned from injury to score 16 points. He did miss an open 3-pointer on the last possession of the game that would have given Towns his second career triple-double, however, so the team's chemistry will probably tank because of Teague's selfishness. The Knicks fall to 19-23, 10th in the East.

The Knicks are close to being whole again with Tim Hardaway Jr. returning to the lineup Friday following a 20-game absence.

With Porzingis altering shots by just about every Wolves player entering the paint, the Knicks took a 27-24 lead after the first quarter, thanks to 13-for-22 shooting on their part and 11-for-28 shooting (39.3 percent) by the Wolves.

Hornacek went with an offensive lineup to open the fourth with Beasley and Porzingis on the court and the move backfired as Minnesota, with four back-ups and Towns on the floor, opened up a 106-92 lead with 6:25 remaining. Thibodeau served as a Knicks assistant coach under Jeff Van Gundy when they reached the NBA Finals in 1999. But the Knicks went on a 14-4 run, drawing within nine points just under the two minutes mark. 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 Wolves came out strong in the third. Gorgui Dieng led the bench with 10 points, five rebounds and two steals.

The lead was still eight after Wiggins' three-point play midway through the quarter. And that was the margin at quarter's end.
