Andrew Wiggins scored 47 points Sunday to become the youngest Timberwolves player to total 40-plus points in a single game. He’s not the only Wolves young star to set a new record within the past week, though.

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 116 points to break the New York City NBA Store's record at Pop-a-Shot.

Towns posed next to the arcade with a handwritten sign that read “116,” mirroring the iconic photo of Wilt Chamberlain holding “100” sign after his 100-point game in 1962.

“History!” Towns said after achieving the feat and claiming he was shooting for 130.

By comparison, Kobe Bryant totaled an impressive Pop-a-Shot score of 87 while visiting Twitter’s headquarters in 2013.

Maybe Towns’ hot hand will carry over onto the court and he’ll be the next Wolves player to score 40- or 50-plus points in a game. 

Watch Towns break the record
 


Towns, however, has nothing on these guys
