It was a big night for the Wolves’ Big Three. Karl-Anthony Towns, Zach LaVine and Andrew Wiggins all scored more than 20 points in the same game for the fourth time this season, and the Wolves beat Atlanta 104-90 in a game whose final score in no way represented the extent to which Minnesota dominated.
Towns didn’t miss a shot. Wiggins re-discovered his long-range touch and LaVine continued to be a three-point dynamo.
Here are some notes from the game:
--Ricky Rubio has 22 assists and no turnovers in his last 67-plus minutes of playing time. He had 10 assists tonight and became the first player in more than eight years to have back-to-back games with 10 or more assists and no turnovers.
--Minnesota matched a season high with 15 made three-pointers. Towns, LaVine and Wiggins were 13-for-18 on three-pointers.
--Towns was 8-for-8 overall, 3-for-3 on three-pointers. It matched the second-highest single-game total without a miss in franchise history (Dante Cunningham, 9, in 2013)
--This was LaVine’s 12th game this season with five or more made three-pointers. Only Kevin Love (16) has more such games in a Wolves uniform.
