Karl-Anthony Towns breaks Minnesota franchise record with 56 points tonight

Karl-Anthony Towns just made history.

After scoring 56 points on 19-32 shooting, 15 rebounds, four assists, and a block, the former Kentucky big man now holds the Minnesota franchise record for most points in a game.

Towns becomes Minnesota’s fourth 50-point scorer in history, with Mo Williams, Corey Brewer, and Kevin Love being the only other players to accomplish the feat.

Just how good is a 55-15 night? Only three people in NBA history have recorded that stat line through age 22, and two of them are Wildcats.

Last night, a video went viral of Ben Simmons playing PUBG, a battle royale-style video game, with Towns. Simmons asked Towns to play one more game with him, saying he had “plenty of time” to play because the Timberwolves were only playing the Atlanta Hawks tonight.

Turns out, Simmons was correct.

BBNBA shattering records daily.

Congratulations, KAT!

    Add that to another list of stellar performances by players Cal could not win a title with.

      DA, that is ridiculous. A lot of good coaches had great players and didn’t win an NCAA championship. In a best of 7 we would have won a national championship with that team. But in a one game crap shoot, anything can happen. DA
