Just last week, Karl-Anthony Towns broke the Minnesota Timberwolves’ single-game scoring record with a ridiculous 56 points against the Atlanta Hawks.
Last night, he made history yet again.
The former Wildcat big man became the first player in NBA history with 5,000 points, 2,500 rebounds, and 250 three-pointers in his first three seasons in the league.

The Timberwolves lost to the Denver Nuggets by a final score of 100-96, but Towns finished with 26 points, 13 rebounds, and four assists on the night.
Towns is currently averaging 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game for the Wolves, who currently hold the No. 8 seed in the West.
NBA All-Star Jimmy Butler returns to action tonight for Minnesota, and with just three games remaining, there’s a good chance they can hang on to a playoff spot. The Wolves take on the Lakers at 10:30 on NBA TV, where you can see a KAT vs. Julius Randle frontcourt duel.
Congratulations to Towns on making history!
