MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - Minnesota Timberwolves player Karl-Anthony Towns is posting impressive numbers in his first NBA season, averaging just over 16 points and nine rebounds per game.
In Monday’s loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, he scored 26 points. Add that to Zach Lavine’s 21 and Andrew Wiggins 20 points they made NBA history.
Towns, Lavine and Wiggins, all 20 years old, became the first trio of teammates under the age of 21 to put up at least 20 points in the same game in NBA history and their chemistry is just beginning to blossom.
Towns is averaging just over 16 points per game and Wiggins just over 15. They are both on pace to become just the second team to have two players that young average 15 or more points per game.
Lavine is currently averaging 12. If he can increase his average to 15, they will make history again as the first trio to do so.
