Karl-Anthony Towns led the charge with 24 points as the NBA-leading Minnesota Timberwolves (17-4) secured their sixth consecutive win, overpowering the Memphis Grizzlies (6-15) with a convincing 127-103 victory on Friday night.

Rudy Gobert’s commanding performance, contributing 16 points, 20 rebounds, and six blocks, played a pivotal role in Minnesota’s dominance.

Mike Conley added 19 points and seven assists to the team’s well-rounded effort.

Troy Brown Jr., stepping up in place of the injured Anthony Edwards, made a significant impact with 20 points. Unfortunately, Edwards left the game early due to a right hip pointer, a recurring injury that sidelined him for two recent games.

Jaren Jackson Jr. led the scoring for the Grizzlies with 21 points, while Desmond Bane, coming off a remarkable 49-point performance against Detroit, contributed 16 points. David Roddy added 13 points for Memphis.

The absence of star guard Ja Morant, serving a 25-game suspension, continues to challenge the Grizzlies’ offensive dynamics.

The third quarter proved pivotal, with Minnesota outscoring Memphis 38-24, extending their lead to double digits and solidifying their sixth consecutive victory.
