Kings at Timberwolves

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Target Center
  • When: Friday, 5 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 10-15, Timberwolves 9-16

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Keep defending: The Kings have improved on defense lately. That will be needed to slow guard Andrew Wiggins.
  • 2. Casspi attacking: If Minnesota begins the game with Kevin Garnett defending Omri Casspi, look for Casspi to be aggressive offensively against the bigger player.
  • 3. Early energy: Playing on the road, the Kings do not want to get down big to start the game. Considering Minnesota beat the Kings in Sacramento, there’s no reason to underestimate the Timberwolves.
