Karl-Anthony Towns Is Left Hanging on High-Fives at the Free-Throw Line

Consider this the rookie treatment.

Andrew Wiggins and Shabazz Muhammad left Karl-Anthony Towns hanging on the charity stripe Saturday night, when the first-year big man reached out for high-fives after draining a free-throw during the host Minnesota Timberwolves' tilt against the New York Knicks.

Both initially just looked around, as if the congratulatory act hadn't occurred to either of them. Towns eventually got what he was looking for, though.

The rookie's conversion cut his team's second-quarter deficit to 15 points, though the Knicks went on to win, 103-95.
