Kings Can’t Withstand Minnesota Surge
Sacramento could not overcome a sizeable second-half deficit against the Timberwolves on Thursday night.
In the first of four road contests, the Kings came up short against a Minnesota Timberwolves team that came out of the game firing on all cylinders.
Sactown fell into a deep deficit after being outscored by 15 points in the third quarter as the T’Wolves would cruise to a 119-96 victory.
George Hill logged his second straight strong showing, tallying a team-high 16 points to go with three assists and two rebounds. Fellow veteran Zach Randolph pitched in 15 points and a team-high nine rebounds in the effort.
Sacramento has a chance to get back on track with some rest under its belt, as the Kings get a chance to exact revenge against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.
