Thibs on Towns' 8 points: Gotta be more active


HOUSTON -- Minnesota Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau called for All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns to play with more energy after Towns was an offensive afterthought in his playoff debut.
Towns scored eight points on 3-of-9 shooting in the Timberwolves' 104-101 loss to the Houston Rockets in Sunday's Game 1. Thibodeau noted that the Rockets' strategy of switching and double-teaming Towns was effective, but he put much of the onus for the off night on the 22-year-old big man's shoulders.
"He's got to be more active," Thibodeau said.
