Timberwolves overthrow Kings

The Minnesota Timberwolves are getting hot at just the right time right now. The team faced the Kings in a three-game winning streak. The Kings were also on their own two-game winning streak, and that meant that something had to give.

It did.

Without a Karl-Anthony Towns highlight moment to ensure a win, the entire Timberwolves roster rallied to the cause, with an astonishing seven players reaching double digits. Better yet, center Rudy Gobert earned another double-double, with 16 points and 16 rebounds to help the Wolves win. His teammate, point forward Kyle Anderson, also put up a double-double, recording 15 points and 11 assists.
