MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota Timberwolves forward Karl-Anthony Towns made the most of his first appearance at the NBA All-Star Game.
Towns was a reserve on the team drafted by Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry. He played 18 minutes and finished with a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds. He finished 7-of-11 shooting from the field, including 1-of-4 from three-point range.
Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler was also a reserve on Curry’s team, but did not play. The Timberwolves had just finished consecutive games before the All-Star break, and game announcers said Butler was feeling under the weather.
The team led by LeBron James won the game 148-145.
The Timberwolves are back in action Friday night, at Houston.
