Featured Game | Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Sacramento Kings
Why the kings can cover
Sacramento played some of its best basketball games of the season this month, winning seven of its last 10 games. The Kings beat Memphis by 33 points last Monday, also adding wins over the Lakers and Thunder at that stretch. Point guard De’Aaron Fox had a team-high 29 points and shared six assists in Saturday’s loss to Minnesota.
The Kings haven’t made the playoffs since 2006, but have put themselves in a position to end that dry spell this season. Their current winning percentage (0.563) is almost 200 points above last year’s record (0.366). Big man Domantas Sabonis scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds Saturday, earning his best 37th double-double of the season in the NBA.
Why the Timberwolves can cover
Minnesota has won three straight games and five of the last six to move up to fifth in the Western Conference rankings. The Timberwolves clinched a 117-110 win over Sacramento on Saturday when Anthony Edwards had a game-high 34 points, 10 rebounds and six assists. He shot 14 of 21 from the ground and the team shot down 52.5% of his shots overall.
Edwards has a career-high 24.7 points and has averaged 34.2 points per game in his last five games. Center Rudy Gobert had a double-double on Saturday with 13 points and 14 rebounds, although a groin injury makes him questionable in the game while Karl-Anthony Towns (Wade) is absent. Minnesota is 9-1 in their last 10 home games and has covered the span in six of their last seven games.
