The Minnesota Timberwolves found a way to stay alive on Tuesday night as they took down the Dallas Mavericks 105-100 in game four of the Western Conference Finals. The Mavericks surprisingly took a 3-0 lead in the series after being the underdog, and the Timberwolves came into game four in a lot of trouble. Karl-Anthony Towns had a big game for Minnesota as he dropped 25 points and he was 4-5 from deep, and the Timberwolves were able to get the win and force a game five.

“I just love the aggression we played with,” Karl-Anthony Towns said, according to an article from “You could tell we had that desperation. That makes us special. (We were) playing with so much energy on defense, making those rotations, and (making) the plays needed to win.”

Towns stepped up big time on the offensive end for the Timberwolves, but the defense as a team was a big reason why they were able to get that win. The Mavericks are a tough team to guard, and Minnesota did a great job all night long keeping them in check. Towns was proud of the way his team played on that end of the floor.

“The numbers speak for themselves,” Towns said. “We showed up defensively (Tuesday) against a really great team and did the things we needed to do to win the game.”

Karl-Anthony Towns and the Timberwolves survived game four, but they still need to win three more games in a row to advance to the NBA Finals. It won’t be easy.

Game four will take place in Minnesota on Thursday night.
