Towns, Edwards lead Timberwolves to win over Nuggets


DENVER (AP) — Karl-Anthony Towns scored 32 points and Anthony Edwards chipped in 18 in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ 136-130 win at Denver. The Nuggets wasted a big night by Nikola Jokic who had 38 points and 19 rebounds in the losing effort. The Timberwolves took three of four from the Nuggets this season but remain a long shot to avoid a play-in scenario. The Nuggets fell out of a tie for fifth in the Western Conference with Utah and now trail the Jazz by a half-game in the Northwest Conference.
