Karl-Anthony Towns recorded the highest individual score in the NBA this season with 60 points for the Minnesota Timberwolves as they overcame the San Antonio Spurs 149-139.
Towns also set a franchise record with his display, which kept the Timberwolves in the play-offs mix.
The Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry was also among the night’s high scorers, with his seventh 40-point haul of the season in a 126-112 defeat of the Washington Wizards.
The match also saw the return of Draymond Green after missing 32 games with injury. It meant the Warriors were able to field Curry, Green and Klay Thompson for the first time since 2019.
Elsewhere, most valuable player contender Joel Embiid came up against last year’s winner Nikola Jokic as the Denver Nuggets met the Philadelphia 76ers.
