Rajon Rondo fell one rebound shy of yet another triple-double finishing with 10 points, nine rebounds and 13 assists as the Kings shot a season-high 57.1 percent from the field.

Meanwhile, the Timberwolves have won just three of their last nine games but will be going for a third straight win after beating the Hawks in a 99-95 upset on Wednesday. Andrew Wiggins scored just 15 points on five of 17 shooting while Ricky Rubio had just five points before going down with an injury, but Zach LaVine stepped up and had a quickfire 18 points and six assists in just 27 minutes off the bench. With the win, Minnesota improves to 7-8 on the season and 2-6 at home.
In ATS trends, the Wolves are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losign record, while the Kings are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning road record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against the Western Conference.
Head to head, the Wolves are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Sacramento but the road team is 7-2 ATS in the last nine meetings overall.
The Kings looked real good in their last outing without Cousins, but the Wolves have been a surprisingly good road team and could grab another one tonight.
