Plenty of big men are showing off their handles these days, but Karl-Anthony Towns decided to break out some of the slickest moves we’ve seen out of a center on Monday.
Towns broke out the crossover dribble against Al Horford on the first possession of the game, breaking away from Horford’s defense. Towns pivoted on his left, crossed Horford up and put the ball behind his back before stopping his dribble and hitting the step-back jumper just outside of the foul circle.
Pretty good moves for a center. I bet Kristaps Porzingis would approve.
