NEW YORK — Julius Randle had 25 points and 14 rebounds, helping the New York Knicks recover after blowing a 21-point lead and beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 103-99, giving Tom Thibodeau a win over the team he last coached.

Randle made the go-ahead free throw with 32 seconds left and the Knicks held on in a game that seemed fully in their control when they lead 86-65 late in the third quarter. 

But Karl-Anthony Towns had a big fourth, finishing with 27 points and 15 rebounds.
