Karl-Anthony Towns has has not produced his regular season numbers in the playoff series against the Nuggets so far.
The 27-year-old center, who averaged 20.8 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists during the regular season, is averaging 10.5 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists over the first two games of the playoffs.
NBA legend Charles Barkley thinks that KAT is not using his height to his advantage and has ruined his game by becoming a three-point shooter.
“If you’re the second-best player on a team, you got to play like it,” Chuck said on TNT. “Karl-Anthony Towns has more turnovers than made baskets. Does not get it done 3/12. Rudy Gobert is not known as a scorer has to have 19 [points] tonight.
“Karl-Anthony Towns should actually have an advantage size-wise. He’s ruined his game in my opinion by becoming a three-point shooter. If you’re as a big as he is, you’re gonna have a size, height advantage every single night.
“But if you’re going to stay down at the perimeter, two things: you don’t get to the foul line and you don’t use your height. So, it’s useless height. That’s what bothers me about his game.”
