MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Karl-Anthony Towns stood up and stared at a printout of the box score of Minnesota’s game against the Atlanta Hawks.

There was a lot for Towns to admire.

Towns scored a franchise-record 56 points and added 15 rebounds for his league-leading 63rd double-double, and the Timberwolves beat the Hawks 126-114 on Wednesday night.

“I just realized the ball kept coming to me more and more often,” Towns said. “I guess that was a sign to shoot the ball. Everyone just kept telling me, ‘You need six more, you need eight more, for 50.’ I wasn’t really thinking about that. I was just trying to find a way to win.” READ MORE>
