BBNBA: Karl Towns and John Wall turn in another impressive night


Last night, John Wall and Karl Towns, the NBA’s Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, faced off and Karl’s Timberwolves came out on top 119-104. Both players turned in impressive performances, so that’s where we’ll start today’s BBNBA Roundup.

Both Willie and Skal started last night for the Kings, and Willie threw down a very Willie dunk off this pick-and-roll:

Skal continues to look like a different player after the All-Star break/DeMarcus Cousins’ departure. He’s asserting himself on both ends of the floor:

A nice highlight reel of Skal’s recent success:

Rajon Rondo was back in the starting lineup for the first time since December 31 last night, but he’s still causing problems for the Bulls’ front office, basically accusing them of tanking the season:

Never a dull day with Rondo on your team.

Nice night for Andrew, who had 9 points and 5 assists, including this three:

However, he couldn’t stop the Greek Freak on this play:
