MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Karl-Anthony Towns scored 15 of his 25 points for Minnesota in the first quarter, before fouling out in frustration and being forced to watch the Timberwolves hang on for a 96-89 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night. Towns liked what he saw from the undefeated Timberwolves, who leaned on their defense and forced 30 turnovers by the Pelicans to set a franchise record for Minnesota’s opponents and tie the all-time mark for New Orleans. ”We’ve got to continue to build this culture and this identity every game, regardless of the result,” said Towns, who went to the bench with 6:36 left.
