Towns says he owes the big night to his teammates:

I appreciate these guys so much because I ain't never been celebrated. You know, I don't know how that feels. You know, so to have kind of people do that when I got 60 was a crazy feeling. Again, 56 it was kind of just treated like another day. I appreciate that. They make these moments special.

The Wolves have won eight of their past nine games and will host the L-A Lakers tomorrow night.
