Karl-Anthony Towns and Joel Embiid are two of the most promising big men in the NBA today and they collided last night as the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Philadephia 76ers battled at the Target Center.

KAT was the unanimous Rookie of the Year last season and looks primed to be one of the most dominant centers since Shaquille O'Neal.

However, Joel Embiid has defied the odds to return after a two-year foot injury and put up the kind of performances that actually give the Philadephia 76ers hope.

The Cameroonian was drafted third overall back in 2014 and, if he hadn't of been injured at the time, many believe he might have usurped Andrew Wiggins as the number one pick.

The Process has been impressing everybody with his varied game, but last night he came up against, quite possibly, the most skilled big man of his generation.

Embiid found that out first hand fast.

Towns' Timberwolves would blowout Embiid's Sixers 110-86 and although the latter recorded a 10-point and 10-rebound double-double in just over 22 minutes, KAT stole the show with 25-point, 10-rebond and 2-block outing.

His double pump-fake that sent Embiid into orbit, though, is definitely the highlight of the game.
