Towns finished with 19 points (6-16 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 16 rebounds, four steals, three blocks and two assists in 48 minutes during Tuesday's 118-112 loss to the 76ers.
Towns struggled from the field Tuesday, finishing with just 19 points on 16 shots. The team continues to struggle to utilize Towns on the offensive end, as evidenced by his 16 shots in 48 minutes, compared to Jimmy Butler's 33 shots in 45 minutes. Scoring aside, Towns was excellent in other areas, collecting a season-high four steals while adding three blocks and 16 rebounds. The efficiency is merely an outlier, and he will look to bounce back in a favorable matchup against the Kings on Thursday.
Towns finished with 28 points (10-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 37 minutes during Sunday's 97-92 victory over Dallas.
Towns backed up his last game with another strong performance Sunday. He appears to be looking for the basket a bit more on offense, and his teammates are rewarding him by delivering the ball. He was guilty of committing seven turnovers, a number that is likely an outlier. Owners will be hoping he can continue his nice form against Joel Embiid and the 76ers on Tuesday.
Towns finished with 21 points (9-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, four blocks and two steals in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 113-107 victory over the Clippers.
After a few sub-par performances, Towns was able to find some more of the ball, scoring 21 points on only 14 shot attempts. Apart from the double-double, of which he leads the league, he collected multiple steals and blocks in a game for the first time this season. Hopefully, this is a sign that his teammates are going to look for him some more on the offensive end, and that his defense will come around to where his owners would like it to be.
Towns finished with only seven points (2-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one block across 37 minutes during Monday's 95-93 loss to Memphis.
Towns disappeared in the tough road loss, scoring just seven points in 37 minutes of action. Although he has been putting up solid numbers, owners would say he has been very disappointing this season. The offense does not seem to be flowing well, as evidenced by his 6 field-goal attempts. He appears lost over certain stretches during the games, floating around in the corner or setting multiple screens for his guards. He does not appear to be the same player he was over his first two seasons, and his owners will be hoping he can work things out sooner, rather than later. It will be interesting to see whether the coaching staff can find a way to get him involved in the offense more, something that would surely be on their minds.
Towns finished with 23 points (9-17 FG 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, two steals and one block in 35 minutes during Friday's 111-107 loss to Oklahoma City.
Towns played well after a poor showing in his previous outing, scoring a team-high 23 points on only 17 shots. His scoring and rebounds are both down on what he produced last season, and this is likely due to the arrival of both Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague. Owners will be hoping that he can find more ways to get his hands on the ball, as will Timberwolves fans. He is only attempting 14.6 field goals per contest, as opposed to his 18 from last season. Once the Wolves can find more ways to get him involved on the offensive end, the wins should start coming with more regularity.
