Towns provided 11 points (5-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists over 30 minutes during Sunday's 109-80 loss to the Nuggets in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

Towns put together a disappointing performance in what has been an ongoing playoff struggle thus far in his career. While he was able to step things up during the Play-In Tournament, he likely needs to elevate his game to another level should the Timberwolves hope to extend the series beyond four games.
