Towns, Teague lead Wolves over Nets after LeVert injury

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jimmy Butler is gone and so is Minnesota's losing streak, after a victory over a Nets team devastated by a gruesome injury to leading scorer Caris LeVert.

Karl-Anthony Towns had 25 points and a season-high 21 rebounds, and the Timberwolves beat Brooklyn 120-113 on Monday after finally trading Butler.

Jeff Teague returned from a six-game absence to score 24 points for Minnesota, which snapped a five-game losing streak.
