Taj Gibson did not know when he drove by an accident back in Minnesota on Thursday that Karl-Anthony Towns had been involved. Gibson greeted his teammate with a hug when he saw him in New York, relieved Towns was O.K. Then Gibson helped the Timberwolves win the first time they had to play without Towns in 304 games. Derrick Rose scored 20 points against his former team, Gibson added a season-high 19, and Minnesota overcame the first missed game of Towns’s profession career to beat the host Knicks, 115-104, on Friday night. “It’s tough, but it just shows the resiliency that this team has, the number of guys that can step up,” Gibson said.
