Friday night's 120-114 loss to the Charlotte Hornets gave the Timberwolves their 20th loss of the season; the first team in the NBA to reach 20 losses this season. 

At 6-20 overall, Minnesota owns the worst winning percentage in the NBA and has lost 20 of 24 since starting the season with two straight victories. 

Terry Rozier had his way with the Wolves, scoring 41 points to lead the Hornets. 

Minnesota was led by Malik Beasley's 31 points, while Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 25 points in his second game after missing 13 consecutive games after testing positive for COVID-19. 

In a battle of two of the top three picks in the most recent NBA Draft, Anthony Edwards, taken first overall by the Wolves, scored 21 points and added six rebounds and three assists. LaMelo Ball, taken third overall by Charlotte, filled the box score with 20 points, 11 rebounds, four assists and three steals. 

Minnesota played with D'Angelo Russell, who didn't make the road trip due to left leg soreness.
