Karl Anthony-Towns blocks Kristaps Porzingis with authority (VIDEO)

The two guys who will finish one-two in the Rookie of the Year balloting faced off Saturday night in Minnesota — except there wasn’t much of a faceoff. Porzingis was in foul trouble most of the evening and played less than 12 minutes, scoring just six points.

Meanwhile, Towns was a force with 23 points, eight rebounds, and three blocks — one of them an impressive block of a Porzingis running hook. That Towns could time that out and get up enough to block the hook shot of a 7’3″ guy is amazing.

The Knicks still got the win, 103-95, behind 30 from Carmelo Anthony and 26 from Robin Lopez.
