1. Wiggins watch: Minnesota forward Andrew Wiggins has always given the Kings problems with his athleticism. He’s averaging 21.9 points.
2. Chasing the KAT: Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns is an emerging star, and his versatility makes him a tough matchup. One of the best ways the Kings can slow Towns is for DeMarcus Cousins to attack him and challenge last season’s Rookie of the Year to play some defense.
3. Surging T-wolves: Minnesota has won three of four, with the loss in overtime to a hot Houston team. The Timberwolves’ record is deceiving because they are one of the league’s up-and-coming teams.
