Timberwolves Vs. Kings Final Score: Minnesota Falls 115-99 In Sacramento

The Minnesota Timberwolves dropped to two games below .500 on Sunday with a 115-99 loss to the Sacramento Kings at Arco Arena. Despite being tied at the half, the Wolves were unable to keep pace after the break, and struggled to hone in from the perimeter (6-for-25 from 3P) all night.

All-Star forward Kevin Love finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds, but shot just 7-for-20 from the field. Love also turned the ball over four times, which was a common theme during the game as the Timberwolves finished with 21 giveaways as a team.

For the Kings, guard Marcus Thornton was the key to his team's second-half surge that eventually put the game out of reach. Thornton added a game-high 24 points with five rebounds and four steals.
