Towns, bench help Timberwolves beat road-weary Kings 132-105

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Karl-Anthony Towns got the Minnesota Timberwolves started and then enjoyed watching rookie Josh Okogie and the bench deliver the big blow.

Towns had 14 points and 14 assists in just 21 minutes, Andrew Wiggins scored 17 and the Timberwolves beat the road-weary Sacramento Kings 132-105 on Monday night.

"You know, he comes off playing the way he played tonight, it makes all of us energized," Towns said about Okogie. "Everyone has that guy that brings the best out of everyone, and Josh is that guy for us. When he comes in the game and plays that way every single time, it reinvigorates all of us."
