The Dominican center beat a franchise record that was in the hands of Kevin Garnett but the night did not end as expected as he had to leave the game due to injury
Coming to the middle of the game Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards, Karl Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves dominated the game with a score of 57 to 53 and in the third period the Dominican reached 30 points.
KAT scored his 83rd game with the TWolves by at least 30 points, beating Kevin Garnett on that total for the most games like that in franchise history.
The franchise is clear that Karl Towns, the number one pick in the 2015 Draft, has been the great figure of the team since then and is the key to the future, along with D’Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, sources reported that Towns’ X-rays were negative, which could be good news given the severity of the fall.
Before leaving the game, KAT had 34 points and 10 rebounds in the day and at the moment it is not known if due to the blow the Dominican will be out of action from now on.
The injury could come at one of the best moments of the season for the Timberwolves and also in Towns’ personal life. Minnesota was 7-1 before last night’s loss to the Wizards, their best streak in 8 games since 2017.
