Notebook: Kings 115, Timberwolves 99


Posted Sunday March 18, 2012 9:15PM

James Ham, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Sacramento Kings used a huge third-quarter spurt to put away the visiting Timberwolves on Sunday by the score of 115-99.

Marcus Thornton struggled with his shot early, but finished with a game high 24 points for the Kings. Rookie Isaiah Thomas had another strong game, hitting 6-for-10 from the field on his way to an 18-point performance. Jason Thompson recorded his third straight double-double, scoring 13 points and grabbing a team-high 10 rebounds.

Kevin Love put in a solid 21 points and 11 rebounds for the visiting Timberwolves, but it wasn't enough. The Kings struggled to defend both Derrick Williams and Michael Beasley for a stretch, but in the end, the Wolves couldn't match the home team's intensity.

QUOTABLE: "The NBA is a game of runs, especially if it's the first group or if it's the guys coming off the bench, if they're in a rhythm and a run, then you let them play it out. If it starts to die down a bit, then you start to make some changes, but if it's not broke, don't fix it."
--Thompson on both he and DeMarcus Cousins telling coach Keith Smart to leave the bench on the floor late in the victory.

THE STAT: Thompson is on fire while his parents have been in town visiting from Philadelphia. The fourth-year forward has put up three consecutive double-doubles and over that stretch and hit an amazing 24-for-29 (83 percent) from the field.

TURNING POINT: Thomas burst past J.J. Barea and laid the ball in to close the third quarter, giving the Kings the 90-80 lead going into the final frame. The Kings outscored the Wolves 33-23 coming out of the break and never looked back.

HOT: Thornton struggled early, going just 3-for-11 from the field in the first half, but he turned it around late. By the final horn, Thornton led all scorers with 24 points on 8-for-20 from the field.

NOT: Wesley Johnson struggled mightily tonight, finishing with two points on 1-for-6 shooting in 28 minutes. He also let Kings forward John Salmons get loose for 15 points.

GOOD MOVE: With less than five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and his team up 13, Smart left his bench in the game. They finished strong, including a couple of highlight-reel dunks by rookie Tyler Honeycutt and veteran Travis Outlaw.

BAD MOVE: Beasley was tough on the Kings early, scoring 11 points before the half on 5-for-8 shooting. The second half for Beasley was a nightmare. He hit just one of his eight shot attempts and finished the game with 13 points.

NOTABLE: Tyreke Evans missed his second straight game with a sprained left ankle. Nikola Pekovic was also a late scratch for the T-Wolves.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves, Monday @ Golden State, Wednesday @ San Antonio, Wednesday @ Oklahoma City. For the Kings, Tuesday vs. Grizzles, Thursday vs. Jazz, Saturday @ Golden State.
