As we shared with you last night, Skal Labissiere’s rise late this season has been great to watch. Last night, Skal had one of his best nights yet, putting up 25 points and 6 rebounds in the Kings’ loss to the Rockets. That’s where we’ll start today’s BBNBA roundup.

Karl Towns and Andrew Wiggins combined for 81 of the Timberwolves’ 109 points last night.Β In one of the most random stats I’ve seen, Karl is just four threes and 26 rebounds away from the league’s first 100 three-pointer, 100 block, 1,000 rebound season. This three got him closer:

Ulis and Booker continue to shine as Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight sit out to rest. Last night, Ulis had 20 points and 10 assists, continuing to prove he’s one of the steals of the 2016 draft:

Booker’s 21 points moved him past Kobe Bryant for the fourth most points by a player before turning 21 years old in NBA history. Afterwards, he made a young fan’s day:
