Karl-Anthony Towns, who was the first overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves in June, had the worst game of his fairly young NBA career. In a 96-84 loss to the Miami Heat on Thursday night, he went just 3 of 13 from the field.
He had just six points with four rebounds, one assist, and three blocks. While he struggled, his shots were not really that bad, as he said he “liked every shot he had.”
While he admitted that he had a bad night from the field, he insists that things are going to look up in the future. We believe that his statement is true, as he shouldn’t have many bad nights in the years to come.
We wouldn’t be surprised if he had a nice rebound game against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.
The 19-year-old rookie came into last night’s game averaging 17.7 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. He’s also averaging an assist and 2.7 turnovers per game with 2.7 blocks per game.
