Timberwolves Vs. Kings Final Score: Minnesota Beats Sacramento 99-63

In a refreshing set of circumstances, the Minnesota Timberwolves (5-8) pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Sacramento Kings (4-10) 99-86 at Target Center in Minneapolis on Monday night.

A back-and-forth game throughout the first three quarters, the Timberwolves blew the game open in the fourth, outscoring the Kings 32-24 behind 11 fourth-quarter points by Kevin Love. The star power forward finished the game with 33 points and 11 rebounds in 41 minutes. Luke Ridnour also had a fantastic game for Minnesota, scoring 25 points on 10-14 shooting along with 9 assists and just 1 turnover.

The win comes one game after the Timberwolves led by 18 late in the third quarter before falling 93-91 on the road to the Atlanta Hawks.

The Timberwolves stay at home to host the floundering Detroit Pistons (3-10) in a game scheduled to start at 8:00 p.m. eastern time on Wednesday, before hitting the road for a pair of games out west against the Los Angeles Clippers (7-3) and Utah Jazz (8-4).
