The Minnesota Timberwolves have had a habit of blowing leads so far this season, Tuesday night it was their turn to make the comeback.

In what was head coach Tom Thibodeau's first game in Chicago since he split with the Bulls, his Wolves overturned a 21-point deficit to beat the 13-11 Bulls – the largest comeback in the NBA so far this year.

Among those helping the cause was Karl-Anthony Towns, who gave this dunk a seriously hard throw-down.

It was a good night for Zach LaVine, who finished with 24 points including six assists, while Andrew Wiggins chipped in with 23 points and nine rebounds.

It lifts the Wolves to 7-18 on the season, and hopefully it's the start of a better run for the team's talented, but underperforming stars.

SportingNews described the win as the Wolves "waking up from their elongated slumber" and pointed to the promising performance of the maligned Ricky Rubio, who had just his second double-double of the season with 11 points and 10 assists.

One of those was this assist for Zach LaVine.

The Wolves next take on the Houston Rockets at Target Center on Saturday.
