BBNBA: Karl Towns almost gets another triple-double

Three Cats were in action in the NBA on New Year’s Day: Jodie Meeks, Karl Towns, and Julius Randle. Let’s kick things off with Jodie Meeks, who scored 11 points in the Magic’s loss to the Pacers:

Meeks has been back from injury for a month and looked like the Jodie of old with this three:

It says something about Karl’s season when he had a “quiet night” and still got a double-double. Is this as angry as we’ve ever seen him during a game?

It’s worth reminding everyone that on Thursday, Karl got the first triple-double of his pro career:

Four more assists and he would have had another one last night.

    Is it possible to put a jump on this daily post? We get it. We have a LOT of players in the NBA. Good for them, hope they do well. I come here for UK news, however, not NBA news.
