The Minnesota Timberwolves are having a pretty rough season. But, even amid trying times, the team continues to find ways to support their players.

Last April, Karl-Anthony Towns lost his mother, Jacqueline Towns, due to complications from COVID-19. Since then, there has been an outpouring of love from the community and, on Sunday, the Timberwolves decided to show their support again by reserving a seat for Mrs. Towns in their game against the Bulls.

Towns has been on record to describe how tough these times have been for him. His mom was only one of the many family members he has lost during this time, and it's hard to imagine what this season of his life has been like for him.

Still, it must be of some comfort to know that he's got so many people backing him up.

And for the Wolves, it seems better days may be ahead. Between the roster getting healthy, new ownership, and young players blossoming, this team could be headed for a rise in the West. Only time will tell.

For now, they will continue to look ahead and hope for the future.
