Towns posted 11 points (1-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-10 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot in 33 minutes during Monday's 126-118 win over the Clippers. While Towns shot a dreadful 14.2 percent night from the floor, he salvaged his stat line by going nine-for 10 from the charity stripe along with 17 rebounds in the win. Towns has recorded a double-double in every game this month, and he's only missed that mark three times in the past two months. Needless to say, Towns has been a model of consistency on that front and has drastically improved on the defensive end. He'll look to keep that streak going against Jusuf Nurkic and the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Towns supplied 22 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block across 28 minutes in Saturday's 115-109 win over the Raptors. Towns struggled through a nightmarish and scoreless first half, with some early foul trouble serving to compound his misery. The light came on at halftime, however, as he compiled all 22 points in the second half while posting his 12th straight double-double. The 22-year-old's shot attempts were his fewest since Dec. 4, but his near-perfect accuracy from both the field and the charity stripe helped lead him to his fourth 20-point effort in the last five games. Given his typically robust involvement on the offensive end, Saturday's early struggles can safely be labeled as an outlier.
Towns scored 22 points (10-19 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 16 rebounds, five blocks, three assists and two steals in 37 minutes during Thursday's 116-98 loss to the Rockets. While his performance from beyond the arc left something to be desired, Towns still padded his league-leading total with his 39th double-double in 47 games -- including a current 11-game streak. Jimmy Butler's arrival has cut into his shot attempts this season, but the third-year center is still blossoming into one of the most dynamic, multi-category assets in fantasy basketball.
Towns scored 20 points (6-11, 2-3 3PT, 6-7 FT) to go with 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 120-103 win against Portland. For the ninth straight game, Towns clinched a double-double with 11 rebounds. In addition to averaging 14.0 boards over this span, the center has scored in bunches, too. During this run, Towns has scored at least 20 points four times for an average of 19.5 points over his last nine games. Combining these stellar numbers together and it is no wonder that he has collected a double-double in 37 of 45 games this season. In addition, Towns has not scored less than 10 points in 20 straight games, making him a viable double-double candidate almost every night from a scoring standpoint.
Towns posted 23 points (9-15 FG, 2-4 3 Pt, 3-4 FT), 15 rebounds, nine assists and a blocked shot in 40 minutes during Friday's 118-107 win over the Knicks. Towns upped his defensive play on Friday, dominating underneath the basket with 15 boards. Enes Kanter didn;r make things easy for Towns but Minnesota's big man excelled against a superior defensive player. This marks eight straight double-doubles for Towns, and he'll try to keep that streak going against Jusuf Nurkic and the Trail Blazers on Sunday.
