Taurean Prince's flawless three-point shooting powers Timberwolves over Knicks

NEW YORK – To keep their playoff hopes alive, the Timberwolves are going to need to punch above their weight class, given the team they have on the floor without Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns.

They got in just enough licks against the Knicks on Monday night and rode a hot shooting night to a 140-134 victory at Madison Square Garden. They pulled it out despite the buzzsaw that was Julius Randle, who had a career-high 57 points. The Wolves need extraordinary things to happen without Edwards and Towns. They got one such night from Taurean Prince, who hit a career-high eight threes (making all eight of his attempts) for 35 points.
