The Clippers simply didn’t have an answer for Karl-Anthony Towns on Wednesday, and they could do little to stop the sophomore big man as he scored 29 points with 14 boards.
KAT is now the first player since the 1989-90 season with at least seven straight games of at least 20 points and 14 rebounds, and he’s been simply phenomenal in 2017. His slow start to the season seems like a distant memory, as he’s been the top player in fantasy over the last two months. If you want him next year you may well have to take him first overall.
Karl-Anthony Towns: 1st player with 7 straight games of at least 20 points and 14 rebounds since Charles Barkley in 1989-90
