1. Towns is too much: Second-year center Karl-Anthony Towns had 29 points in his last outing against the Kings on Feb. 27 in Sacramento, won handily by Minnesota. It will take more than one defender to make sure Towns doesn’t have his way.
2. Watch out for Wiggins: Andrew Wiggins also had a big game against the Kings in February with 27 points. The Kings do not have the size on the perimeter to deal with Wiggins, so slowing him will not be easy.
3. Point guard push: Ty Lawson was held out for rest in Friday’s game at New Orleans. Expect him to come out aggressively with fresh legs against Ricky Rubio.
