Towns, who didn't talk postgame Monday, appeared frustrated and he was very short with his answers.

Saunders preached this being a process, but that lessons can be learned from the mistakes made in the final minutes and overtime.

Monday's loss was the Wolves' 10 consecutive. Their record is 15-32, second worst in the West.
