MVP candidate Paul George returned to the court for Oklahoma City Tuesday night...

But he was not the best player in the building. Not for a night anyway. Karl-Anthony Towns looked like the MVP scoring 41 points, grabbing 14 rebounds, and dominating inside as the Timberwolves upset the Thunder 131-120.

Towns scored the 41 on 15-of-27 shooting. The performance and win are not going to be enough to get the Timberwolves to the playoffs this season, but it was good to see him break out.
