Karl-Anthony Towns was set up in a spot coming out of the All Star break where he AND the Wolves had to go nuts the rest of the way in order for him to be in the All NBA conversation.
The Wolves are 9-2 since the break and KAT just dropped a 60-piece.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are going to make the playoffs and be a hard out for any team they play against! That Pat Bev leadership got Towns playing like an MVP candidate! Already got a 50 piece and counting. Don’t mind me tho and Carry on…

Best. Shooting. Center. EVER.

Since Wilt Chamberlain retired, only 3 centers have scored 60 points in a game, per @Stathead:
David Robinson in 1994 (71)
Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 (61)
Karl-Anthony Towns tonight (60)

HAVE THAT SAME ENERGY WHEN YOU DOUBTED TOWNS AS MVP WHEN HE WINS IT…

If Karl-Anthony Towns does NOT make one of the three All-NBA teams this season, we riot.

I HATE that the Timberwolves sat KAT for the whole fourth. Dude had a legit shot at 70 and it wasn’t even a blowout. HATE.

I hope the Timberwolves understand how mad Twitter will be if they don’t play KAT the entire 4th quarter

KAT just had scored 32 points in a single quarter.
