For a team who has played pretty terrible in their first two games, the Minnesota Timberwolves are sitting pretty with a 2-0 record both on the road. In an article by CBS Sports, the secret ingredient that has kept the Timberwolves alive is named as a one, Karl-Anthony Towns.
Towns is the youngest player in league history with double-doubles in in both of his first career games and is the second teen in league history to have at least 28 points and 14 rebounds in a game, behind LeBron James.
He credited his outstanding game against the Denver Nuggets to a technique Kentucky fans are all too familiar with. “You know what, I think a lot of my points today came off one dribble going to the basket,” Towns told reporters, according to the Star-Tribune.
So maybe Calipari does know what he’s doing after all, but hey, what do we know? Watch for Towns to keep doing incredible things this season with the Timberwolves and always check back here for updates on your favorite Cats in the NBA!
