Looks like Wiggins will finally get a breather after 19 straight minutes. 9 points, 3 rebs, finished the shift with 2 steals and an assist.
Wiggins has played 18 straight minutes to start the game, and counting.
Shabazz with 2 rim-rattlers to whip this crowd into a frenzy
Cousins with 8 points, 6 rebs, 2 assists and some veteran-level agitation of Bennett, who has 2 fouls
Malone said opponents have been targeting Stauskas on defensive end, Brewer just posted him for an easy layup
Mo Williams with 5 assists in the first 8 minutes. Wolves did not move the ball last night. Kings started 5-14, as Malone feared.
Boogie the Point Guard didn't quite work out as well as it probably did in his head.
23 seconds into the game, Dieng picks up a foul on Cousins. Flip really concerned about Kings' ability to draw fouls
Bennett starting means Wolves 2nd unit gets even smaller. I didn't know that was possible, but here we are
Anthony Bennett getting the start tonight for Wolves coming off that nice game last night.
Mike Malone said tonight is scariest game of Kings 4-game trip. Young team sees wolves missing 4 starters. He's concerned
Surprised Mollie went w/ Allen. But have heard good things. Just was told by a few that previous MLB coaching experience was huge deal.
One of first guys on the floor for SAC pregame warmups: DeMarcus Cousins
Impressive comeback from the Gophers. Wasn't sure they could comeback from 14 down. Win and they're in.
Wow. Brutal call
I don't think Pop took any joy in hammering a weakened Wolves team. Coaching fraternity means a lot to him. Could tell he was conflicted
Spurs still looking for that beautiful game they played in the playoffs last season. No need for it tonight. Pop: "It wasn't a fair fight."
Popovich: "it wasn't a fair fight."
That's a career-high 20 points for Anthony Bennett
LaVine is just frantic out there. Kid needs to take a deep breath. Happens to lots of rooks

Spurs quickly open 36-30 lead, Flip takes a timeout
Zach for Mo here a minute into 2nd qtr. Spurs lead 31-30
During timeout, Ricky Rubio is sitting on the bench in the huddle and talking to players and listening to Flip. That's something right there
From 6-2 down, Spurs now lead 10-6 early here at TC
Will be interesting to see how Wiggins responds tonight with Kawhi checking him. Won't be a fun night at the office for him
Flip has switched Brewer on to Parker and Mo on to Danny Green
What's the final margin tonight?
Spurs are starting Kawhi, Duncan, Diaw, Parker, Green vs. Wolves' Mo, Brewer, Wiggins, Dieng and Shabazz
Flip said his Golden Valley CC team might have been older than the one the Wolves will field tonight
Flip's parting words to media before game: "One of these days I’m going to come bring good news."
Knicks bailed out Wolves by matching up to MIN instead of dictating matchups. I might expect Pop to try a different approach
Flip says he's emulating Pop tonight by sitting 4 of his starters. Doubt Wolves get fined though
