Preview: Wolves at Kings
The Minnesota Timberwolves (15-43) continue their extended stay in California, taking on the Sacramento Kings (23-34) for the first night of a back-to-back in the capital. The two sides met previously on April 5 in Minneapolis, with the Wolves claiming a 116-105 victory behind D'Angelo Russell's 25 points off the bench.
Minnesota is looking to bounce back from Sunday's 124-105 defeat to the LA Clippers at Staples Center. Rookie sensation Anthony Edwards was atop the scoring column in the loss, leading all scorers with 23 points while tying a career-high with five three-pointers.
The Kings return home after beating the Dallas Mavericks, 121-107, Sunday evening in Texas. De'Aaron Fox led his side with 30 points and 12 assists in the victory.
