Kings Take On Timberwolves: Game Preview


The Sacramento Kings prepare to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves as the Kings look to continue finding ways to win games.

The Kings will have to play as a team, and continue to find each other. They will look to Tyreke Evans to continue his improved play as of late; as well as looking for DeMarcus Cousins to rebound from his early exit in the last game.

If the Kings hope to beat Minnesota tonight, they must rebound the ball on both ends of the floor, while eliminating second chance points for the T-Wolves. The Kings lost their first game against the T-Wolves earlier this season mainly due to being out hustled. They must maintain their composure, and remember that the T-Wolves are an injured team trying to find its way as well.

With Marcus Thornton potentially unavailable due to a strained right quadriceps he suffered in practice, The Kings need Demarcus Cousins to play a solid game against the talented Kevin Love.
