Timberwolves Vs. Kings Score Update: Minnesota Leads 28-22 After First Quarter

The Minnesota Timberwolves have shown flashes of improved play this season, and after a slow start, they showed a few more of those flashes as they ended the first quarter on a 7-0 run to take a 28-22 lead after one quarter of play against the Sacramento Kings at Target Center in Minneapolis.

Kevin Love followed a five-footer with a three-pointer and then a Wesley Johnson buzzer-beating layup gave Minnesota a 28-22 lead.

However, Ricky Rubio is off to a rough start shooting the ball, making 1-5 from the field for 2 points. Rubio started the game and shared the backcourt with fellow point guard Luke Ridnour, who leads the Timberwolves with 10 points on 4-5 shooting.

Sacramento entered the game with a 1-6 record on the road, and they entered the game with a -4.6 first quarter differential, second worst in the NBA.
