Wolves overcome Towns' first absence, beat Knicks 115-104

NEW YORK (AP) Derrick Rose scored 20 points, Taj Gibson added a season-high 19, and the Minnesota Timberwolves overcame the first missed game of Karl-Anthony Towns' career to beat the New York Knicks 115-104 on Friday night.

Towns' streak of 303 consecutive starts was snapped when he was placed in the concussion protocol after a car accident. Towns was able to fly to New York after the accident Thursday in Minnesota, but was ruled out after further medical examination Friday.

The 2015 No. 1 draft pick's streak of starts was the longest to begin a career since 1970-71. He just appeared in his second straight All-Star Game and would have been playing not far from where he grew up in New Jersey had he not been hurt.
