Karl-Anthony Towns, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves (39-30) took on Bam Adebayo and the Miami Heat (45-24) in part of the Saturday NBA slate. The T-Wolves came out top with 113-104 being the final score.

Still, atop the Eastern Conference standings is the Miami Heat, who were coming off a 117-105 victory over the short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers. The Heat entered this game having won eight of their last 10 games with their only losses coming against both participants in the 2021 NBA Finals.

Recently, the Timberwolves held the longest active winning streak in the Western Conference (six games) but experienced a letdown loss to the Orlando Magic on Friday.

Neither team managed to produce much for an efficient night of scoring. It was a strange outing for the Minnesota Timberwolves as none of their players reached the 20-point threshold and Jaylen Nowell (16) was their leading scorer coming off the bench.

Tyler Herro provided the Miami Heat with 30 points off the bench while Max Strus chipped in 19 of his own. However, aside from Bam Adebayo, much of their teammates were struggling to convert. Without Jimmy Butler, it was tough for Miami to overcome.

Both teams are playing to build momentum as the NBA playoffs continue to approach and the standings become all the more important. The Timberwolves are taking care of business as of late having won seven of their last eight games while the Heat has done quite well in their own right.
