Notebook: Kings 106, Wolves 103


James Ham, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Apr 14, 2014 12:32 AM - Updated Mon Apr 14, 2014 12:32 AM

THE FACT: Coach Michael Malone and his Sacramento Kings matched last seasons win total of 28 with one game remaining in the season.

THE LEAD: With nothing but pride on the line, the Sacramento Kings (28-53) knocked off the Minnesota Timberwolves (40-40) tonight at Sleep Train Arena by a final of 106-103.

DeMarcus Cousins led the way for Sacramento, dropping in 35 points, 15 rebounds and six assists in the win.

After missing the previous 10 games due to a deep thigh bruise, Isaiah Thomas returned to the start lineup and didn't miss a beat. The 25-year-old guard finished with 14 points and four assists in 30 minutes of action.

Ben McLemore chipped in 19 points on 6-for-11 shooting and Derrick Williams added 13.

Kevin Love scored a game-high 43 points on 12-of-23 shooting and 4-of-9 from long range. The All-Star forward added 11 rebounds and hit 15-for-17 from the line in the loss for Minnesota.

Starting for the injured Nikola Pekovic, Gorgui Dieng filled up the stat sheet for coach Rick Adelman. The rookie big man out of Louisville finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds, four assists and two blocks on the night.

Luc Mbah a Moute came off the Timberwolves bench to score 12 points and after finishing with a career-high 51 points Friday against the Houston Rockets, Corey Brewer scored 10 tonight against the Kings.

QUOTABLE: "I feel for him. He has made a concerted effort to handle his emotions and not get that last tech. Obviously, we'll try to do everything we to try to get that rescinded, but it's disappointing, because I know it meant a lot to him and he's making great strides in that area."
-- Malone on Cousins technical foul.

THE STAT: Despite a monster game, Cousins picked up his 16th technical foul of the season. Barring a change of heart by the officials, Cousins will miss the Kings finale on Wednesday against the Phoenix Suns due to suspension.

TURNING POINT: During a :20 second spurt at the midway point of the fourth quarter, rookie Ray McCallum dropped in back-to-back 3-balls to open up an 88-82 lead for the Kings.

QUOTABLE II: "We're still a team trying to grow - find ourselves. And I think we took steps today."
-- Cousins on the win.

HOT: Love torched the Kings for 43 points on 12-of-23 shooting.

NOT: Kevin Martin couldn't get it going against his old team, finishing with just two points on 0-for-8 shooting.

GOOD MOVE: With rumors swirling that Adelman may retire at the end of the season, the Kings ran a video montage of highlights from his eight-year run as Sacramento's coach during pre-game. Kings fans responded with a standing ovation for the winningest coach in the Sacramento era.

BAD MOVE: With 1:43 remaining and the Kings leading 98-91, Thomas fouled Love shooting a 3-pointer and made this finish a lot more interesting.

NOTABLE: Cousins surpassed Vlade Divac for 8th place on the Sacramento Kings-era career points list.

UP NEXT: For the Timberwolves, Monday @ Warriors, Wednesday vs. Utah. For the Kings, Wednesday vs. Suns.
