Minnesota Timberwolves superstar Karl-Anthony Towns had an amazing night in Los Angeles leading his team to a blowout victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Wolves were coming from a six-game losing skid, before the team’s 107-83 win in LA. Towns came up big during the second half, finishing the contest with 29 points.

DespiteĀ rumorsĀ on him possibly asking for a trade, Towns has steered the ship and has been the leader of Minnesota. Minnesota hopes to find a more balanced approach on both ends of the floor and build on the win vs. Lakers.

Towns is averaging 23.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists, shooting 49 percent from the field, 47 percent from deep, and 86 percent from the free-throw line.
