Karl-Anthony Towns is in good company.

In last night’s ten-point win over the Thunder, Towns had 29 points and 17 rebounds, his tenth consecutive double-double.  It’s the eleventh time in his career he’s gone for 25 and 15.  The only other players under 22 with more 25/15 games are Tim Duncan, Dwight Howard and Shaq.  Not too shabby.

Towns’ best highlights of the night:

Today I’m going to change things up.  Let me know in the comments section if you prefer this format or the one we’ve been using this season.  We’ll gladly accommodate.

    I like this format, but I had to get a calculator out to add up the points.

    I like the table format but the width of the field is too small so you have to scroll to see all the metrics. There’s a lot of unused grey space on desktop – I would expand the field so the entire table fits. That would also make reading the articles on the rest of the site easier as well. I know you cut off the left rail for mobile (limiting grey space to cut into) but its about time you all just get a fully responsive site.

    1 metric addition would be adjusted efficiency metrics, so points per minute, assists per minute, etc. especially relevant on KSR as we have a lot of new guys in the league that don’t get as many minutes so it helps for a relative comparison to other players when we adjust for playing time.

      Speaking my language Zach, they need to hire you!

    Prefer the other format so I don’t have to scroll to see all the box score. Can’t see name and score at the same time.

    Definitely the other format. Maybe add the “news” pieces to the old format.

    I prefer this format, especially when I’m looking on my phone. That said, if you changed the stat titles to abbreviations, especially “+/-” instead of “Plus/Minus” I think it would help with having to scroll across.

    this would be alleviated with a site redesign

    I like the other format on my PC, this format may look better on my phone.
