Towns bested Shaq and Anthony Davis with his dominance last night

Publish date:

Rookie big man Karl-Anthony Towns might not have gotten the Wolves a win against the Mavericks Wednesday night, but he did manage a stat line of 27 points, 16 rebounds, and 6 blocks, becoming the youngest player in NBA history to achieve those numbers.

Those numbers put him in rare company. Only two other players have had such a dominant game before they became legal, drinking adults: Shaquille O'Neal and Anthony Davis. (Stats via Basketball Reference.)

Towns only needs five more 25/15/5 performances to pass Kevin Garnett for the franchise record for such games.

Anyway, if you didn't see the game, check out this highlight package from last night.
