Sporting just a 2-5 record at home, the Minnesota Timberwolves have a chance to improve on that on Monday as they post the struggling Sacramento Kings. Though Minnesota lost in their last outing, the Kings have won just one game on the road this season, dropping the other six. The Timberwolves will likely be out for blood after dropping an exceedingly close game at Atlanta, collapsing late to be downed 93-91. Sacramento, on the other hand, was dominated by a large margin, losing to the Dallas Mavericks 99-60.
It was Sacramento's second-straight loss following a rare 98-91 win over Toronto on Jan. 11. The Kings haven't won two games in a row all season, and now they stand little chance of doing so over their next two, with a tough outing against Indiana following their tilt against Minnesota. The Timberwolves are hoping for a 2-0 homestand with the similarly struggling Detroit coming in on Wednesday.
Game Date/Time: Monday, Jan. 16, 8:00 p.m. ET
