Karl Anthony Towns 28 pts 13 rebs 4 assists 2 Blocks! ROOKIE OF THE YEAR?

KAT – Karl Anthony Towns

Karl Anthony Towns PLAYED BIG and its nice to see him play like this, I have a feeling that this Kid would be stronger after the all star break. We all know that Towns beat Isiah Thomas in the skills challenge and this victory solidifies the bright future for this Kid.

Towns led his team to win against the Celtics today with a score of 124-122. This is the 18th win this season for the Wolves and as soon as they get rid of Sam Mitchell next year would be better for this Franchise. 

The Wolves will have a chance to get better next season with another lottery pick and I certainly hope that this would be the last one. I would post an analysis on how to improve the wolves next season .

For now let us all watch KAT on his road to ROY:
