The Timberwolves put on a show in Monday's 104-90 win over the Atlanta Hawks, and most of the performance was put on from outside the 3-point line. Minnesota's big three of Zach LaVine, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns shot a combined 13 of 18 from deep and a combined 22 of 38 overall.

Towns was perfect, shooting 3 of 3 from downtown (all in the first quarter) and 8 of 8 overall en route to 22 points and 11 rebounds. He's had a double-double in 11 of 13 games in December and he's fourth in the NBA with 21 double-doubles on the season.

LaVine was 6 of 9 from three and 7 of 16 overall to finish with 21 points. His 87 made threes this season ranks eighth in the league.

Wiggins was 4 of 6 from three and 7 of 14 overall to finish with 21 points. He's hit 42 threes this season, putting him on pace to crush his career high of 57 made threes last season.
