While the Timberwolves hung around in the first half thanks to 23 points and 11 rebounds for Karl-Anthony Towns, the Wizards opened things up in the second half.
The Wizards outscored the Timberwolves 44-29 in the third quarter, opening up a lead as big as 19 points.
Jarred Vanderbilt put up a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds in the starting lineup, but it wasn't enough to get Chris Finch his first win as head coach.
The Timberwolves are now 7-27 on the season and will host the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night.
