Karl Towns’ 35 points was not enough as the Timberwolves fell to the Rockets 128-108. That loss drops Minnesota to 35-25 on the season. If the playoffs started today, Towns would be looking at his first playoff appearance as the #4 seed.

In other BBNBA news, six other former Cats scored in double figures, with some highlights including De’Aaron Fox’s 11 points and 7 assists and Jamal Murray’s 17 points. Murray is turning in a good sophomore season for the Nuggets who currently sit at 31-26 as the #6 seed in the playoffs.
