Last year Karl-Anthony Towns ran away with the Rookie of the Year Award, leaving the Knicks’ sensational Kristaps Porzingis in the dust. Tonight, he’s doing it again.
A quick look at Karl’s first quarter:
Karl didn’t stay perfect in the second quarter, but he did do this:

Towns has 26 points and 9 rebounds at half as the T’Wolves trail the Knicks by nine.
Karl went for 40 for the first time, dropping a career-high 47-points in his 100th NBA game. Towns also had 18 rebounds. In another fun fact from the people at ESPN Stats and Info, the last six 40-point 15-reb games have all been by Kentucky big men. The last non-Kentucky player to do it was Russell Westbrook in 2015.
Karl wasn’t the only one with a career-high. His former point guard, Andrew Harrison, scored 21 points in relief of the injured Mike Conley. In Philadelphia, Boogie mopped the Sixers’ floor, and that’s not a metaphor.
