Kings at Timberwolves

THE PARTICULARS

  • Where: Target Center
  • When: Wednesday, 5 p.m.
  • TV/radio: CSNCA, 950, 1140
  • Records: Kings 27-43, Timberwolves 22-48

THREE KEYS

  • 1. Clean up the offense: The Kings could have beaten the Chicago Bulls on Monday, but 20 turnovers were their downfall. Sacramento’s predictable, sloppy offense leads to easy baskets for the opposition.
  • 2. Teach the rookie: Minnesota’s Karl-Anthony Towns is the leading Rookie of the Year candidate, but he cannot stop DeMarcus Cousins in the post. The Kings must put Towns to the test.
  • 3. Remember Rudy: The Kings too often leave Rudy Gay standing and watching on offense or let him settle for jumpers. They must get their second-leading scorer going.
