Minnesota Timberwolves' All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns is on a historic 3-point pace

The Minnesota Timberwolves have adapted to the modern NBA style of play, pace and 3-point shooting.

The idea, of course, is to minimize how many long twos they take, and thus far, the Wolves have been doing a good job of that.

Each season, Minnesota has been one of the worst teams at getting 3-point shots up. Last year, they were No. 26 in the NBA in attempts at 28.7 long-range shots per game. This season they are third, shooting 39.6 threes per game, trailing only the Houston Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks.

A large reason towards this high volume amount of threes has been Karl-Anthony Towns.
