The Charlotte Hornets (10-31) upset the Minnesota Timberwolves (30-13) with a thrilling 128-125 victory, overcoming Karl-Anthony Towns’ historic 62-point performance.

Towns set a franchise record with his remarkable 62-point game, including an astounding 44 points in the first half. However, the Hornets mounted a comeback, erasing an 18-point deficit to secure their 10th win of the season.

Despite Towns’ extraordinary individual effort, he struggled in the crucial moments of the fourth quarter, scoring only four points on 2-for-10 shooting.

Miles Bridges stepped up for the Hornets with 28 points, while Brandon Miller contributed 27, playing key roles in the comeback victory. LaMelo Ball contributed double-double of 18 points and 13 assists.

Despite the historic performance, the Wolves couldn’t secure the win, and the Hornets’ resilience, especially in the fourth quarter (36-18), led to a memorable upset in NBA history.

The short-handed Hornets, missing key players due to injuries, once again demonstrated their ability to overcome adversity, with P.J. Washington stepping up in the absence of Nick Richards and other key contributors.
