Karl-Anthony Towns and Devin Booker were college teammates at Kentucky. Last night, the Timberwolves and Suns faced off, and Towns absolutely obliterated a Booker layup.

Towns and Booker are two of the better second year players in the league. Booker showed off his scoring ability in the game, dropping 26 points and hitting 4-of-7 from three-point range. However, when he attacked the rim on Towns, things did not quite go his way.

That was Towns' only block of the game, but it was as emphatic as it gets. KAT's team got the best of Booker's as well, edging out a 112-111 victory. Towns also chipped in 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting, and grabbed 10 rebounds.
