Monday night was a busy night in the NBA, with nine players scoring 30-plus points, and three players scoring 40-plus.
Karl-Anthony Towns even put up an NBA season-high in points with 60 in Minnesota’s win over the San Antonio Spurs.
Stephen Curry finished with 47 vs. the Wizards, Trae Young scored 46, while Nikola Jokic and Joel Embiid battled it out in Philadelphia with Denver coming out on top.
Moreover, Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Jazz in Utah for the first time in 21 years.
Finally, the Los Angeles Lakers lost at home yet another game, this time to the Toronto Raptors.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to all things NBA on a Monday night:
I’M SORRY KARL-ANTHONY TOWNS DID WHAT

That's six 50-point games in 10 days.
March 5 – LeBron James
March 6 – Jayson Tatum
March 8 – Kyrie Irving
March 11 – LeBron James
March 13 – Kevin Durant
March 14 – Karl-Anthony Towns
That's already one shy of the most ever in March.
There are 17 days left in March.

If Karl-Anthony Towns does NOT make one of the three All-NBA teams this season, we riot.
