Timberwolves Wrap: Karl-Anthony Towns dominates the Knicks

Jimmy Butler had best response after Karl Anthony Towns criticized his country music

Up just a point entering the fourth quarter, the Wolves got down to work. The winning streak isn't. Jack also had a team-high eight assists.

The fourth quarter saw the Wolves crack down on defense; the Knicks didn't score a field goal until more than four minutes had ticked off the clock.

Jeff Teague was rusty once again (3-11 FG, 1-6 3P), but overall played a solid game with four steals and eight assists.

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. The Timberwolves' star big man flirted with a triple-double, posting 23 points, 15 rebounds, and nine assists in their 118-108 victory over the Knicks.

The Wolves launched 27 3-pointers but only made 10 of them.

Up 19, the Wolves allowed the Knicks to pull within nine on Porzingis' basket with 2:10 left.

The Knicks placed seven players in double figures, led by Jarrett Jack with 18 points.

That hot streak continued for the Knicks, who expanded their lead despite the fact the Wolves hit five of their first seven shots of the second quarter.

Statistically Speaking: The Timberwolves scored 64 points in the paint and tallied 21 second chance points.

The Wolves came out strong in the third. The home team built a lead as large as 19 points, culminating in a Jamal Crawford 3-pointer that would have been a 4-point play but for a rare missed free throw from the three-time Sixth Man of the Year. Three minutes later, after he'd added a layup to his point total, he buried another 3-pointer, making it a 13-3 Minnesota run that ballooned the lead to 100-89. And that was the margin at quarter's end.
