Karl-Anthony Towns had himself a great Christmas, netting 21 points while adding 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two threes and four swats in 40 minutes.
Towns’ shot selection was a hot topic amongst the TNT crew in this one, and it’s a fair point to make considering he shot 7-for-12 from the field but only 2-of-6 from deep. Some of his triples weren’t exactly great shots but KAT does lead the Wolves in made threes and he’s clearly capable enough to take and make. Taking fewer shots from distance would help out his efficiency, and in turn his fantasy value, considerably, but owners don’t have much to complain about. He’s simply no match for a bad team like the Lakers and is well on his way to a first-round fantasy finish.
