I started to write this post before some of the Western Conference games finished and had it all prepped to talk about John Wall’s near miss effort at a triple-double. But then Karl Towns had a monster finish to his fourth quarter to grab his own triple-double, the first of his career. Two former players vying for a triple-double on the same night? Just another night of NBA action for UK fans.

Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves (105-103 loss to Nuggets)

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

Have to lead off with Karl becoming the youngest player in franchise history to record a trip-dub.

Take a look at all of KAT’s highlights here:

Murray showed his ability to create for himself in transition with this play.

And this is the Jamal Murray we saw night in and night out in Lexington.
