Duel: D’Angelo Russell (23 Pts) vs Karl Anthony-Towns (26 Pts, 14 Rebs)

The top two picks in the 2015 NBA Draft went at it on Wednesday night as the Lakers took on the T-Wolves. Lakers rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell turned in his best performance of the season as he poured in a career-high 23 points which included a clutch three-pointer to keep the Lakers in the game, then another tough runner to send the game into OT. Kobe Bryant was pumped about Russell’s game-tying shot.

Towns was too much for the Lakers to handle though as he poured in 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead the T-Wolves to the 123-122 OT win. Check out the highlights of this exciting duel below.
