Timberwolves take on slumping Suns

MINNEAPOLIS -- Karl-Anthony Towns is a young, talented and proud player, but the Minnesota Timberwolves' star center's pride took a big hit when his Philadelphia 76ers counterpart, Joel Embiid, left Minneapolis on Tuesday with a near triple-double (28 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists) and a 118-112 Sixers' win.

Towns publicly shamed himself afterward, shouldering the blame for Embiid's monster game and his team's loss. Two nights later, Towns funneled that frustration into a 30-point, 14-rebound and a season-high five-block performance in Minnesota's 119-96 home win over the Sacramento Kings.

"I came to be an assassin tonight, not a basketball player," Towns said Thursday night. "I wanted to try to be as active as possible and just disrupt the game as much as possible as well."
