Towns recorded 25 points (9-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 107-100 win over the Pelicans.
New pickups Robert Covington and Dario Saric made their team debuts for Minnesota after coming over from Philadelphia in a blockbuster trade over the weekend, but neither seemed to have a negative impact on Towns' production. The offense continued to run through the franchise center, who is averaging an outstanding 25.5 points, 16.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.8 three-pointers in 37.8 minutes per game over the past four contests. The only downside of Towns' added usage of late is that it has resulted in an increased turnover rate, with the big man coughing up the ball a whopping 25 times over that four-game stretch.
Towns finished with 25 points (9-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 21 rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal in 37 minutes during Monday's 120-113 victory over the Nets.
Towns was dominant Monday, recording his first 20/20 game of the season. He hit 9-of-11 shot attempts including 2-of-2 from beyond the arc. Towns is ramping his production up and with Jimmy Butler now out of the picture, could be set for an explosion moving forward. He is currently averaging over two blocks per game which is by far the highest mark of his career. Dario Saric and Robert Covington are set to make their debut's Wednesday and it will be interesting to see how everyone fits together.
Towns finished with 39 points (15-27 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 19 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 39 minutes during Friday's 121-110 loss to the Kings.
Towns went off for a season-high 39 points and 19 rebounds Friday but was unable to assist the team in avoiding their ninth loss of the season. Despite the loss, there were a lot of positive to take out of the game for Towns. He appeared far more aggressive on the offensive end whilst also crashing the board with ferocity. The Jimmy Butler saga continues to roll on with no immediate end in sight. Hopefully, for Towns, this is the start of a turnaround, not only for him but for the team who is quickly falling out of the race for the playoffs.
It was an uncharacteristically rough night from the field for Towns, who posted his who posted his second-worst shooting percentage (31.3) of the season and third-lowest scoring total as well. The 2015 first overall pick did turn in his typically strong work on the rebounding front, and he posted multiple blocks for the seventh time in the last nine games. Towns will look to bounce back from his offensive clunker against the Kings on Friday night.
Towns put together a game-high rebounding total while also hitting the 20-point mark for the fourth time in the last five games. His current productive offensive stretch is in sharp contrast to the start of his campaign, when Towns only scored more than 17 points on one occasion over the first six contests. The 22-year-old has also double-doubled in four out of the last five, a return to the form he often displayed last season while racking up a league-high 68.
