Karl-Anthony Towns scored 27 points on 13-of-21 shooting (including a three) with 12 boards, two assists and two blocks in Saturday’s win over the Blazers.
We can nitpick and point out that he didn’t get to the line but we love KAT and we’re not buying Sam Mitchell’s bit about wanting to hold him back so he doesn’t get burned out. It’s dogma of KAT and Gorgui Dieng not playing together that has kept KAT off the floor, but tonight they did get some time together and that has been rare. Towns has been a top 25-35 value this season and that’s probably a good place to evaluate him at.
