Towns looks to help Wolves complete sweep of Jazz

Minnesota handed Utah its first home loss of the season on Monday. The Jazz have a quick chance to settle the score when they face the Timberwolves again Wednesday in Minneapolis.

The Timberwolves rallied for a 112-102 victory behind a fourth-quarter offensive explosion. They scored 36 points while shooting 68.8 percent from the field over the final 12 minutes. Karl-Anthony Towns led the way with 29 points -- including a career-high seven 3-pointers. Towns attempted a franchise-record 15 3-pointers.

The Minnesota center made a conscious effort to draw his Jazz counterpart Rudy Gobert away from the rim and his outside shooting opened up the offense down the stretch.
