Jordyn Woods was on hand this week to watch Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves get eliminated from the NBA playoffs.
On Tuesday night, the Denver Nuggets beat Towns’ squad 112-109. That put them up 4-1 in their best-of-seven series and punched their ticket to the Western Conference semi-finals.
Towns finished the game with 26 points and 11 rebounds, but he also recorded a +/- of -9, which was par for the course in him throughout the first round. He was consistently getting outplayed whenever he was on the floor.
It wasn’t all bad news for Towns, though. Although he was unimpressive in Game 5, his girlfriend caused something of a stir. Woods’ outfit to the proceedings went viral shortly thereafter.

This obviously isn’t the first time Woods has blown up online in recent months. Between her provocative date night photos with Towns, the pair’s intimate Valentine’s Day celebration and her racy outfits to his games, it has been one thing after another with her.
Big picture, this past season was an abject failure for the Timberwolves. Acquiring Rudy Gobert was supposed turn the Wolves into a title contender. Some legitimately had them upsetting the Nuggets in the first round.

In the end, none of that even came close to coming to fruition. Towns and Gobert were a terrible fit. The entire squad was super injury-prone. And given the draft and trade capital that was expended for Gobert, it’s hard to see how Minnesota improves next season.
Towns is technically under contract with the Wolves until 2026-27, but at this point, it really wouldn’t be all that shocking to see him take his leave before then. This squad, as presently constructed, isn’t working.
And clearly Anthony Edwards is the piece the front office will be building around going forward, not Towns.
How much longer will Towns and Woods ultimately remain in Minnesota? Time will tell.
