The 2 big guns for the Timberwolves in Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins were solid in the loss to the Grizzlies combining for 46 points on 16/34 shooting. Zach Levine went for 19 points, but while PG Ricky Rubio had 8 assists he only had 4 points on 1/5 shooting.
The bench for the Timberwolves only had 17 points in their loss to the Grizzlies.
Rubio has to facilitate the fast break in this game and get the Timberwolves running.
Towns and Wiggins are both scorers that are very athletic and these are the 2 guys that the Kings have to key on.
Towns and C Gorgui Dieng, who was solid in the season opener with 12 points and 14 boards, have to man up on Cousins and not allow him to dominate in the paint.
The Timberwolves lost to the Grizzlies on the road and last season they were 15-26 away from the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
Last season the Kings ranked a solid 3rd in the NBA in points per game, but ranked dead last in opponents’ points per game.
In their loss to the Spurs in their last game the Kings only shot 40% from the field and they committed 16 turnovers.
In the San Antonio loss DeMarcus Cousins had a big game going for 34 points and 16 boards, but Rudy Gay was the only other starter that scored more than 8 points with him going for 17 on 3/10 shooting.
The Kings’ bench also did not help out much in the loss to the Spurs with Ben McLemore going for 10 points while the 4 other reserve players that saw action only combined for 8 points.
Guards Ty Lawson and Aaron Afflalo only combined for 14 points on a combined 6/16 shooting and overall the Sactown backcourt has to knock down shots to keep the Minnesota defense from packing the lane to contain Cousins.
The Kings are 0-1 at home this season and last season they were 18-23 in their house.
