Towns, Timberwolves beat slumping Kings, 113-104
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Karl-Anthony Towns had 26 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 113-104 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.
Zach LaVine scored all 23 of his points in the second half, Andrew Wiggins also had 23 and the Timberwolves overcame a sluggish start to get just their second home victory of the month. They shot 56 percent and had 29 assists to overcome 18-for-32 shooting at the free throw line.
Rajon Rondo had 25 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds, but the Kings sorely missed star center DeMarcus Cousins, who missed the game with a bruised right knee. Kosta Koufos had 15 points and 15 rebounds in Sacramento's 13th loss in 16 games.
