3. Rookie battle: Towns vs. Okafor

If you're a Wolves fan undoubtably you remember the debate – Who should the Wolves take with the top pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor?

It wasn't the best night for Towns. He was in foul trouble for a large portion of the night and didn't play well defensively.

On the evening in 25 minutes, Towns finished with eight points and five boards, but Okafor didn't stand out either. He had 10 points and three boards for Philadelphia.
