Harden's triple-double helps Rockets over Wolves 123-118

Fantasy Impact Towns certainly made sure he would end the season with a bang on Wednesday, especially since you won't be seeing Minnesota in the playoffs.

The MVP contender became the first player in National Basketball Association history to finish the regular season with at least 2,000 points (2,356), 900 assists (907) and 600 rebounds (659).

The Rockets drilled four 3-pointers to open the second half, seizing a 72-67 lead they would not relent. Trevor Ariza finished with 15 points, Eric Gordon tallied 11, and Patrick Beverley put in a vintage Wolverine performance with 10 points, 10 rebounds 7 assists and 3 steals.

Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns made history during his second National Basketball Association season, becoming the first player in league history to score at least 2,000 points, grab 1,000 rebounds and make at least 100 threes in a single year. The seven-foot tall center is averaging 25.1 points, 12.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game.

Gary Harris scored 20 points to lead Denver Nuggets over Dallas Mavericks in a 109-91 win that former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo watched from the bench in a Mavericks uniform. Andrew Wiggins tallied 21 points and Shabazz Muhammad added 22 off the bench.

A 3-pointer by Towns got the Timberwolves within a point early in the third quarter before Houston used a 10-2 run to push the lead to 76-67 with about nine minutes left in the period.

The Nuggets had four others score in double-figures - Mason Plumlee (16), Malik Beasley (16), Juan Hernangomez (14) and Jamal Murray (10).

Rockets: Houston had at least 60 points at halftime for the 39th time this season. We have weak spots on our team that we have to collectively do better.

In that game, Towns had 37 points and 22 rebounds and Wiggins had 30 points and three steals to lead the way for the Wolves. During Wednesday night's game against the Rockets, he made his incredible season even more special.
