Towns carries Timberwolves past Curry-less Warriors, 119-99

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Karl-Anthony Towns had 26 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 119-99 victory over the worn-out Golden State Warriors, who played without Steph Curry and Draymond Green on Sunday night.

Jaylen Nowell scored 17 points and Malik Beasley added in 16 with five second-half 3-pointers on an especially productive night for the reserves for the Timberwolves, who outscored a Warriors team wrapping up a four-game trip by a whopping 40-19 over the last 16 minutes.

"We're really close. We like to see each other succeed. That right there is one of the hardest things to find in teams, I feel like," Nowell said. "None of us on the team are selfish."
