BBNBA: Karl-Anthony Towns is a beast

ESPN Stats & Info

ESPN Stats & Info

Karl-Anthony Towns is an absolute monster on the basketball court. In just his second season in the NBA, Towns is already one of the best players in the league. Last night, he showed just exactly what he is capable of when he’s got it going. A career high in points and the second highest rebound total of his career, but it wasn’t enough to bring home a W for the Timberwolves.

Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves (106-104 loss to Knicks)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
42 15-22 0-3 17-20 3 15 18 2 1 3 4 2 +7 47

We could write this whole post on Towns’ highlights, but we’ll condense it to a few. Got to start with the dunk from the picture above.

Should probably not try to guard KAT with a Plumlee. Just saying.

Don’t forget, Towns is a good defender too.

Andrew Harrison, Memphis Grizzlies (120-105 loss to Raptors)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS

Harrison is finally earning some more minutes in Memphis due to an injury to Mike Conley. And he took advantage last night for sure.

This tough bucket for Harrison gave him a new career high in points.

bbnba-patterson

Patrick Patterson, Toronto Raptors (120-105 win over Grizzlies)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
30 5-10 4-6 0-0 3 10 13 0 1 0 1 1 +17 14

While you weren’t paying attention, Patrick Patterson went out and turned himself into a really, really solid stretch four.

Add another 3 for Patterson, giving him his first double-double of the season.

bbnba-randle

Julius Randle, Los Angles Lakers (96-90 win over Bulls)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
31 6-18 3-3 8-9 1 4 5 2 2 0 3 0 +8 23

Brandon Knight was hot when he first came off the bench last night for the Suns.

The Suns Twitter account was even prompted to tweet this after a few smooth jumpers from Knight in a row.

bbnba-bled

Eric Bledsoe, Phoenix Suns (109-107 win over Hawks)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
28 5-17 0-3 2-2 2 4 6 4 1 1 1 1 -9 12

Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns (109-107 win over Hawks)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
33 5-13 1-2 2-6 0 1 1 4 1 0 1 2 +2 13

I don’t think there are many former UK guys that I think look as smooth with the ball as Devin Booker does.

And his jumper. Wow. Smooth as the Rockies.

bbnba-ulis

Tyler Ulis, Phoenix Suns (DNP in 109-107 win over Hawks)

The cluster of experienced guards on the Phoenix roster is making it hard for Ulis to see quality playing time on a regular basis.

bbnba-wall

John Wall, Washington Wizards (126-115 OT loss to Thunder)

Min FG 3PT FT OREB DREB REB AST STL BLK TO PF +/- PTS
44 6-20 2-7 1-2 3 3 6 15 1 1 3 1 -11 15

Wall started some Cat-on-Cat crime last night with a nice left-handed slam over Enes Kanter.

Jamal made two from three point line last night. Let’s take a look at both.

Catch and shoot. Simple as that.

And here’s tonight’s schedule of NBA games:

  • Dallas Mavericks at Charlotte Hornets, 7pm ET
  • Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets, 7:30pm ET
  • Orlando Magic at Memphis Grizzlies, 8pm ET
  • Los Angeles Clippers at Cleveland Cavaliers, 8pm ET on TNT
  • Miami Heat at Utah Jazz, 9pm ET

    From the Booker gif, Dwight Howard will surely set the single game rebound and turnover records at that rate…
