WASHINGTON D.C. — Jarrett Culver had the best game of his young career Saturday, scoring 20 points in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ 131-109 win over the Washington Wizards.
The former Texas Tech star and Lubbock native hit eight of his 18 shots and made four 3-pointers. Culver also grabbed five rebounds in his career high 26 minutes.
The scoring outburst replaced some of the production that Minnesota missed from star center Karl-Anthony Towns, who is serving a suspension for brawling with Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid.
Culver’s next game is Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks.
