Minnesota Timberwolves 99
Boston Celtics 113
The Timberwolves closed their road trip in disappointing fashion Monday night. They were beaten handily by Boston 113-99.
1. Boston three party
The shots were falling from long range for the Celtics. Boston was 12-of-25 from the three-point line. Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko combined to go a perfect 6-of-6.
Olynyk finished with 19 points to lead the way for the Celtics.
While R.J. Hunter didn't shoot nearly as well from downtown, 1-of-5, the one he made was a pretty one.
2. Out glassed
The Wolves weren't much of a match for the Celtics on the glass Monday night. Boston out-rebounded the Wolves 50-36, while holding the Wolves to just six offensive boards.
Jae Crowder led the Celtics with 10 boards, adding 18 points for the double-double.
3. Towns double-double
Where would the Wolves have been without Karl-Anthony Towns? On a night when the Wolves were held to just 36 rebounds, Towns posted another double-double.
Not only did he finish with 25 points, but he also grabbed 16 of Minnesota's 36 rebounds
