Towns tallied 28 points (11-26 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocked shots across 38 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Suns.
Towns has scored in single digits only once this season and is on a six-game streak of double-digit rebound performances. Towns' defensive prowess has been a blemish on Towns' otherwise superior numbers in the past, but the 22-year old has taken a step forward in that department this season
Towns turned in another solid effort in the high-scoring loss, posting his fifth straight double-double and logging multiple blocks for the second time in the last four games. The 2015 first overall pick has also been hot from distance of late, draining multiple threes in six of his last eight contests. Towns naturally remains a focal point of the high-powered Timberwolves offense, giving him elite fantasy value in all formats.
Towns scoring and rebounding totals both led the Timberwolves on the night, and the performance served as the big man's fourth straight double-double. The 23-year-old has also hit the 30-point mark in two of his last three games, as he's significantly picked up his production since the trade of Jimmy Butler to the 76ers on Nov. 10. Since that point, Towns has only been under 20 points in four of 14 games, and he's generated seven double-doubles over that span as well.
Towns had 19 points (6-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 113-105 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Towns had some foul trouble in this one which limited him to just 30 minutes of playing time. The Trail Blazers guarded him well, limiting him to just 19 points. Despite all of that, Towns still managed to record his q5th double-double of the season. The much improved Timberwolves will travel to Oakland to face the Warriors in what will be another tough matchup.
Towns finished with 35 points (13-20 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 12 rebounds, six blocks, three assists, and two steals in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 121-104 victory over the Hornets.
Towns was amazing Wednesday, taking over in the final quarter as the Timberwolves finished the game on a 28-to-8 run. He has been a different player since the Jimmy Butler trade, continuing to evolve his game. The defense has been arguably the biggest talking point. Across his last six games, Towns now has a combined nine blocks and nine steals. If he can add a consistent defensive element to his game, his overall fantasy value should continue to rise.
