In his first game after a car accident that could have killed him, Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns is balling out.

Towns put up a monster first half against the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.

On Thursday night, a car that Towns was traveling in was rear-ended by a semitruck that Towns guessed was going somewhere between 35-45 mph. He missed each of the next two games while clearing the concussion protocol.

But prior to the game on Monday, he noted that things could have been much worse.

Fortunately for Towns, he came out of it in good shape. And as we’re seeing, it’s not impacting his game in any negative way.
