Seven times in Timberwolves history, a rookie has recorded eight or more points, rebounds and assists in a game:
With his team down by two early, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said he "took the brakes off" his players in the second period. In return, the Predators rewarded their coach with his 500th career win.
The Wolves shot 54 percent for the game, led by Karl-Anthony Towns' 32 points and 12 rebounds.
Towns started relatively slowly with his rebounding, getting 10 or more in only two of his first six games. But as the season went on, the numbers have risen.
The Timberwolves rallied in the fourth quarter, then held off the Denver Nuggets 111-108 at Target Center on Sunday night.
