The Minnesota Timberwolves are still kicking after their close win in game four over the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavericks went up 3-0 in the Western Conference Finals, and the Timberwolves needed a win on Tuesday night to keep their season alive. They got it done with a 105-100 win, and the series is now shifting back over to Minnesota. Karl-Anthony Towns is a big reason why the Timberwolves are still alive.

Karl-Anthony Towns hasn’t had his best series, but he came to play in game four. He finished with 25 points and he was feeling it from deep. Towns finished 4-5 from three, and Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch was very happy with how he played.

“KAT’s a great player,” Chris Finch said, according to an article from ESPN. “His struggles were not going to last forever. He got himself going. Even when he got deep in foul trouble, we left him out there. … Just let him roll, and he played smart, played under control, rebounded really well for us, executed defensively. Really proud of him. Tonight was a great step for him.”

Anthony Edwards had a huge game for the Timberwolves as well as he led all scorers with 29 points. He also had a lot of good things to say about Towns after the game.

“Everything came together for him; he was super confident,” Anthony Edwards said. “He played exceptionally well, and he came through big-time. He was the reason we won tonight.”

Now, the Timberwolves have to find a way to get another win in game five on Thursday night. That one will be at home for Minnesota.
