Karl-Anthony Towns, Wolves
His 56-point, 15-rebound night not only was a team scoring record, it also put him in elite company with Wilt Chamberlain and seven others as the only players with a 55 / 15 game in NBA history.
By the numbers
6 Towns’ career-record tying made three-pointers.
9 Tyus Jones’ season high for assists. He and Jeff Teague combined for 17 of the Wolves’ 33 assists.
612 Wolves club record three-pointers this season after they made 13 vs. Atlanta. Nemanja Bjelica’s first-quarter three gave them 602, one more than the record of 601 set by last season’s team. For comparison, Stephen Curry made a record 402 by himself during the 2015-16 season.
