Karl-Anthony Towns breaks Minnesota Timberwolves franchise record for most points scored in one game. Towns ended last night’s game with 56 points and 15 rebounds in the victory over the Atlanta Hawks. The previous record of 52 points was held by Mo Williams from 2015.
Towns almost gave up his jersey to some fans after the game but was stopped by teammate Jamal Crawford who told him to keep it, and explained he just broke a franchise record.
“Next thing you know I was asking for the ball, I was asking for everything.” Towns said, “It’s great when you have teammates like that who help you realize not only the little things, but the big things in life and how valuable they truly are and how special they are.”
This monumental game for Towns will be in record books and forever cherished. This incredible performance also came at a clutch time for the Wolves as they look to move into the number 7 seed in the Western Conference.
