The star guard entered the night averaging 25.0 points on 46.0 percent shooting in his third NBA season.

Last year, the budding superstar posted 21.3 points per game on 44.1 percent shooting for a 46-36 Timberwolves squad that finished seventh in the Western Conference and qualified for the postseason.
