The Timberwolves played the first of 2 games without Karl-Anthony Towns Saturday night and Minnesota wins at Washington 131-109. Minnesota was led by Andrew Wiggins with 21 points and both Robert Covington and Jarrett Culver added 20 points.
The Timberwolves opened their season with a 1-point win in overtime at Brooklyn. Star Tribune Sports Columnist Jim Souhan joined me on WJON today. He said for at least one night the small lineup that includes Robert Covington at the 4 and Andrew Wiggins as the 3 worked.
