TODAY’S GAME

KINGS (23-43)

AT TIMBERWOLVES (32-32)

• Time: 4 p.m.

• Where: Target Center, Minneapolis

• TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140

THREE KEYS

• 1. Love in the paint: Minnesota All-Star forward Kevin Love is among the league’s top rebounders at 13.0 per game. The Kings cannot allow him to dominate in the paint and trigger Minnesota’s fast breaks with outlet passes.

• 2. Love on the perimeter: The Kings held on to win at Minnesota in January, but it was close because Love got hot from three-point range. Whoever is guarding him cannot relax when Love is not in the post.

• 3. Wing advantage: This could be the ideal game to work through Rudy Gay on offense. He is averaging 28.5 points in two games against Minnesota this season.
