Karl-Anthony Towns scored 22 points with 15 boards and two assists on Monday in Game 4 but failed to hit any triples or to collect and defensive stats against the Rockets.
Towns played well offensively on Monday, hitting 9-of-15 shots, but the Wolves’ defense was lacking in the third quarter as the Wolves ceded 50 points in the frame. Towns will need to impose himself on the defensive end in Game 5 if the Wolves expect the have any chance. Taj Gibson also struggled on Monday only scoring two points with three boards and no defensive stats, it’s no wonder the Wolves couldn’t stay competitive in the second half when the Rockets got hot.
