Karl-Anthony Towns had no idea today at practice what we were talking about when he was asked about a reported players-only meeting on Wednesday.
He seemed genuinely confused and asked us where we heard that. – 12:44 PM

Good morning
Karl-Anthony Towns has made 18 of the 34 stepback 3s he has taken this season. 53% good, 34 attempts not good pic.twitter.com/xLqhDocNNJ11:21 AM

Anthony Edwards when asked about how to involve Karl-Anthony Towns in the late-game offense:
“We be trying to. Shit. We be trying to. But it’s a lotta I want the ball, DLo want the ball, KAT want the ball. Know what I’m saying? Once we figure it out, we’re gonna be alright.” – 11:44 PM

Thought this was interesting: Karl-Anthony Towns said postgame that Memphis is making him jump to defend shots by getting to the rim, and that, to some extent, takes him out of rebounding position.
“It’s difficult because my job is to protect the rim at all costs.” — KAT – 11:08 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns on Brandon Clarke:
“He just knows where to go. He’s always in the right spot at the right time. You go for a block, he’s magically right in the exact spot where the ball is coming off. He has a knack for rebounding, and we gotta box him out better.” – 11:04 PM

Karl-Anthony Towns 3-point shooting in his career…
Stepback 3s: 41.4%
All other 3s: 39.6%
If he wants to shoot more in this series, that’s the ticket – 9:21 PM

The Grizzlies got through FedExForum security in time for tip-off tonight. Just about a perfect start. Jaren Jackson Jr. with 2 quick buckets, Karl-Anthony Towns with 2 quick fouls. Memphis up 13-2 on Minnesota early. – 7:41 PM
