Timberwolves Vs. Kings Final Score: Minnesota Can't Stop Sacramento In 116-108 Loss

The Minnesota Timberwolves dropped five games below .500 for the first time this season, losing on the road to the Sacramento Kings on Monday night, 116-108.

The Timberwolves trimmed the deficit to four in the final minute of the fourth, but the Kings were too much and hit their free throws in the end much like they had been hitting their shots all night. They finished the game hitting over 50-percent from the floor and knocking down 23 of 28 free throws in the game.

Tyreke Evans was three assists away from a triple-double, leading the Kings with 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.

Brad Miller, who is retiring after the season, started at center for the T-Wolves and had 11 points and six assists in almost 22 minutes. Miller played five-plus seasons with the Kings. Kevin Love had a team-high 23 points, but only seven rebounds.
