The Sacramento Kings cannot do anything right when they leave the California state capital. The Minnesota Timberwolves ran all over them in the second half en route a 99-86 victory, dropping Sacramento to 4-10 on the season and 1-7 on the road.
Kevin Love finished with 33 points and 11 rebounds, Luke Ridinour had a career night with 25 points and nine assists, Wayne Ellington added 15 points off the bench, and Ricky Rubio came close to triple double territory by notching up nine points, eight boards and eight assists.
Sacramento had five players finish in double figures, with Marcus Thornton, Jason Thompson and Francisco Garcia leading the way with 12 points, John Salmons adding 11 and DeMarcus Cousins putting up ten. But the Kings shot only 4 of 17 from three point land (the T'Wolves went 10 for 26), and Sacramento also missed eight free throws. It was a tough loss for a team that needs a lot of fixing.
