It was the match up of two former Kentucky big men in the Los Angeles Lakers at Minnesota Timberwolves game last night. For the Timberwolves, Karl-Anthony Towns struggled scoring the ball, finishing with just 10 points on 2 of 9 shooting, but he made up for it by pulling down 19 rebounds, dishing out four assists, and blocking two shots. Julius Randle had a better game offensively for the Lakers, as he had 23 points to go along with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a block. The Timberwolves picked up the W over the Lakers by the score of 119-111.

For Towns, last night was his 51st double-double of the season, which ties Kevin Love for the most ever before the All-Star break.

    Towns did get the win but Randles stat line is pretty good

    Never saw an NBA team score over a thousand points in a game before.
