Davis and Cousins have already been named All-Star starters and Towns will surely be named to the Western Conference's reserves when the teams are announced. Davis only had two shots the entire second half, as his first shot came with only a little bit over a minute remaining in the game, but it was a big one. Davis' dunk with 1:15 left in the fourth quarter gave the New Orleans Pelicans a six-point lead and ultimately led them to the win. Towns struggled with foul trouble in the first half, playing only eight minutes and with no Jimmy Butler who was out due to injury. In the second half, Towns took over and helped lead his team to a big win over the Toronto Raptors, snapping a two-game losing skid for the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves have yet to lose three straight games this season. Check out the rest of the stats below. Stats [table id=100 /] Highlights Tonight in the NBA 1:00: Magic @ Celtics 3:30: Knicks (Kanter) @ Lakers (Randle) 4:00: Nets @ Pistons 7:00: Pacers (Poythress) @ Spurs Player(s) to watch Tonight is a rare night in the NBA. Only three former Wildcats will take the court on Sunday with no games on national television. Luckily for you, NBA League Pass is having a free preview that ends today, so get your fill in while you can. That being said, the New York Knicks taking on the Los Angeles Lakers at 3:30 has enough blue blood in it to make it worth watching. Julius Randle leads his team at home against Enes Kanter, as both players are having career seasons. Randle is averaging 15.4 points and 8.8 rebounds while shooting 54.1 percent from the field since becoming a starter. This will be his 13th straight game starting. Kanter is averaging career highs in field goal percentage (59.7) and rebounds per game (9.9). Follow me on Twitter: @ZackGeoghegan
