The Sacramento Kings are looking to start a win streak as they travel to face the Minnesota Timberwolves. Sacramento is 2-3 over their last five starts, and most recently beat the Suns, 99-92. The Timberwolves, are 3-2 over their last five games, and lost their last game at home, 118-112 to the Sixers. This game could be more evenly matched than anticipated.
The last time the Timberwolves and Kings took the court against each other, was last season. The teams faced each other four times, with the Timberwolves winning three of four.
The Sacramento Kings have not been a competitive team since the early 2000’s. This season is no different. The Kings have a losing record, and the team can seem to get things right on the management side of the ball club. Aside from that, the Kings are seven games under .500 this year.
The Kings won their most recent game, beating the Suns by seven points. Sacramento shot 42.7 percent from the field and 31.8 percent from three point land. Sacramento was led by George Hill who had 18 points. Zach Randolph also played well, adding 17 points in 28 minutes.
If the Kings can play inspired every night, they could win more games. Young players like Buddy Hield, De’Aaron Fox and Willie Cauley-Stein are going to be the future of the team, if they don’t get traded before developing with each other.
Defensively, the Kings held the Suns to 92 points without Devin Booker. On the season, the Kings are allowing 105 points per game. Good enough for 15th in the league this season. Bogdan Bogdanovic is leading the team in steals this year with 1.2 per game.
If the Kings young players can turn the corner, Sacramento can be taken serious in a few years.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the most talented young teams in the NBA this season, but have not yet turned the corner. Minnesota sits at 16-12, but have yet to play at an elite level. Big man Karl Anthony Towns is averaging 20.8 points, and 11.1 rebounds per game this season and Jimmy Butler is a solid second option scoring a little over 19 points per game this year.
The roster is one of the most talented in the NBA, but something just isn’t going right for the Timberwolves. Talented shooting guard Andrew Wiggins is scoring 18.3 points per game this year. Wiggins was 8 of 24 from the field and 1 of 7 from three point land in the loss to Philadelphia.
If the Timberwolves can get all their talent on the right page, Minnesota could be taken serious. Minnesota is allowing 106.7 points per game this season, ranking Minnesota 19th in points allowed this year. Expect a better game from Wiggins than his last one.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The Sacramento Kings have a ton of young talent, but under bad management and coaching the squad is doomed every time they step on the court. This matchup could get ugly quick against the Timberwolves.
Minnesota is a better team on paper, but have yet to live up to the huge expectations. Even with the addition of Jimmy Butler, the team has struggled to be respected in the west.
