Towns has 33 points, 23 boards to lift Wolves over Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) A night after they were eliminated from playoff contention, the Minnesota Timberwolves at least ended a difficult skid.

Karl-Anthony Towns had 33 points and 23 rebounds, and the Timberwolves beat the Memphis Grizzlies 112-99 on Saturday night, ending a five-game slide that matched their longest of the season.

"It feels good," said guard Tyus Jones, who had 12 points and nine assists. "We've been working (for it). We've been working and fighting, so it feels good to finally come out on the right side of things."
