Jordyn Woods celebrates Timberwolves friend Karl-Anthony Towns’ win

N.B.A

Jordyn Woods impressed boyfriend Karl-Anthony Towns on Sunday after the Timberwolves star reached his first conference final with a 98-90 comeback win against reigning champion Denver Nuggets in Game 7.

On Instagram, the model shared photos of the couple cuddling and smiling during a sweet post-game embrace in the back hallways of Ball Arena in Denver.

“Goodbye Denver,” she wrote with a tearful smiley face on her Instagram Story — which featured a warning sign about the altitude in Denver that read “Low Oxygen.”

Woods, 26, gushed over the NBA All-Star, 28, in a heartfelt tribute, praising the Timberwolves.

“Western Conference Finals!!! Are you joking!?!? I couldn’t be happier for this team and especially Karl,” she wrote. “He’s had to overcome so much adversity to get to this point in his career, let alone knee surgery earlier this season. I am so proud and in awe of him. This is your moment!”

Woods — who wore custom stilettos with the Wolves’ logo and Towns’ No. 32 for Sunday’s game — referenced the surgery the center had in March to repair a lateral meniscus tear in the left knee.

Woods also shared a photo of Towns — who recorded a double-double — and his teammate, Anthony Edwards, during their hilarious and now viral post-match press conference.

The couple celebrated four years together in May. They were best friends for years before turning romantic during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Woods supported Towns during the pandemic and following the deaths of seven of his family members, including mother Jacqueline Towns, who died from COVID-19 in April 2020.

The Timberwolves now face the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals.

Game 1 is tipped off on Wednesday in Minneapolis.
