Devin Booker had a pretty good night himself, turning in his ninth straight 20+ point game. He had five threes:

It was also a huge night for Karl, who put up 32 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists, and 4 blocks in the Timberwolves win, his seventh 30+ point game this season. He joins Kevin Garnett as the only player in Timberwolves history to record consecutive 30 point, 10 rebound, 5 assist games. As Andrew Wiggins said afterwards, Karl is “playing out of his mind right now.” Don’t tell John Calipari, but he chinned up on the rim on this dunk:

    In other words, Kentucky score 76 of the Sun’s 115 points.

    Terence Jones just put up 36 to lead the Pelicans over the Cavs WITHOUT Anthony Davis! Jones shot 13-18 from the floor, 3-4 from 3, had 11 rebounds and 3 blocks. Monster game against the defending champs.
