Karl-Anthony Towns continues to make his mark in the NBA, and he's now etched his name into Minnesota Timberwolves history. With his 26-point performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Towns now has the single-season TWolves scoring record with 2,033 points. That tops Kevin Love's mark of 2,010 points from back in 2013-14.

And to top it off, The Timberwolves revealed a new logo with Towns as the face of the re-branding.
