#Twolves coach Flip Saunders has been in the ear of referee Steven Anderson all night. Anderson has had enough and gave Saunders a tech.

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders chatting up a few fans. He's got them laughing in the third row.

Andy Greder

Andrew Wiggins has a career high four steals, per @WolvesRadio.

Andy Greder

#Kings not named DeMarcus Cousins are shooting 29 percent from the field against the #Twolves, who lead 39-32 at 5:27 in second quarter.

Jon Krawczynski

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.

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins has played 18 straight minutes to start the game, and counting.

Jon Krawczynski

Stauskas let that fly from Toronto and it landed in Vancouver. #Canadianhumoreh

Andy Greder

Those two Shabazz Muhammad buckets were first points for #Twolves bench. Andrew Wiggins has played all 15 mins and comes out of timeout, too

Jon Krawczynski

Shabazz with 2 rim-rattlers to whip this crowd into a frenzy

Jon Krawczynski

Cousins with 8 points, 6 rebs, 2 assists and some veteran-level agitation of Bennett, who has 2 fouls

Andy Greder

End 1Q: #Twolves 24, #Kings 21. Corey Brewer and Anthony Bennett each with six points, while Mo Williams has six assists.

Jon Krawczynski

#TWolves 24, #Kings 21 after 1. Bennett with 6, Dieng with 4 and 4 and just blocked Boogie at buzzer. Kings 37.5% and 5 TOs

Jon Krawczynski

Malone said opponents have been targeting Stauskas on defensive end, Brewer just posted him for an easy layup

Andy Greder

Interestingly, the thin #Twolves are rolling with the starters for most of first quarter. Dieng, Bennett and Brewer each with one foul.

Andy Greder

Target Center's anticipation for Derrick Williams to play is just palpable. Former No. 2 #Twolves pick had 22 mins, DNP for #Kings in last 2

Jon Krawczynski

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.

Andy Greder

#Twolves Andrew Wiggins appears more assertive for his offense early against #Kings. Unlike last night, when it took plays called for him.

Jon Krawczynski

Boogie the Point Guard didn't quite work out as well as it probably did in his head.

Andy Greder

Crazy stat #Kings coach Michael Malone pointed out: In the last two games, point guard Darren Collison has 23 assists and 1 turnover.

Jon Krawczynski

23 seconds into the game, Dieng picks up a foul on Cousins. Flip really concerned about Kings' ability to draw fouls

Jon Krawczynski

Bennett starting means Wolves 2nd unit gets even smaller. I didn't know that was possible, but here we are

Jon Krawczynski

Anthony Bennett getting the start tonight for Wolves coming off that nice game last night.

Andy Greder

#Twolves projected starters: SF Andrew Wiggins, PF Anthony Bennett, C Gorgui Dieng, SG Corey Brewer and PG Mo Williams.

Andy Greder

#Twolves general manager Milt Newton attended the funeral of Thaddeus Young's mother in Memphis on Friday.

Andy Greder

#Twolves coach Flip Saunders on roster, poised for 8th lineup in 12th game: "As long as you are breathing, you are going to get a chance."

Jon Krawczynski

Mike Malone said tonight is scariest game of Kings 4-game trip. Young team sees wolves missing 4 starters. He's concerned

Darren Wolfson

Surprised Mollie went w/ Allen. But have heard good things. Just was told by a few that previous MLB coaching experience was huge deal.

Andy Greder

In a matchup with DeMarcus Cousins, #Twolves coach Flip Saunders' message to center Gorgui Dieng: "Survival."

Jerry Zgoda

My colleague @BloodStrib is covering tonight's Kings game, so follow him for updates

Jon Krawczynski

One of first guys on the floor for SAC pregame warmups: DeMarcus Cousins

Darren Wolfson

Better job for stathead @KeithLeventhal. Michigan was ranked in at least one poll in '05 when #Gophers won in Ann Arbor. I have a headache.

Darren Wolfson

Coach and AP polls get funky. Best way to put today into context: 1st win on the road vs. a B1G AP top-25 team since 2000 (OSU). #gophers

Darren Wolfson

#Gophers end a 16-game road losing streak vs. ranked B1G opponents. 1st such win in 11 yrs. Today's win surely vaults them in bowl picture.

Darren Wolfson

Halftime deficit stat meaningless now. Kill has his signature win. Division play is neat. Sets up biggest #Gophers game of my lifetime.

Jon Krawczynski

Impressive comeback from the Gophers. Wasn't sure they could comeback from 14 down. Win and they're in.

Darren Wolfson

Obligatory: #Gophers 1-24 under Kill when down at the half. Glass half-full: 1-2 in last 3 such scenarios.

Wolves Dancers

Being a part of the @StJude Give Thanks Walk at @mallofamerica this morning was so wonderful! Thank u for having us. http://t.co/KeYyNjBah9

Darren Wolfson

Been 11 years since the #Gophers have beaten a ranked B1G team on the road. Huskers ineptitude + injuries = streak truly should end today.

Darren Wolfson

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

Anthony Bennett

Before the night ends , happy Birthday to my lil homie @anthonybennett .. You already know it's all… instagram.com/p/vsFhogqVSf/

Jon Krawczynski

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."

Andy Greder

Final: #Spurs 121, #Twolves 92. The most important moment likely came just off the court. Read about it soon at @PioneerPress.

Jon Krawczynski

That's a career-high 20 points for Anthony Bennett

Andy Greder

Canadian journo @DavidEbner informs me that Anthony Bennett has tied and now set a new career high with 20 points.

Jon Krawczynski

Jeff Ferguson! Do it, coach! RT @KFAN1003: END of 3Q: Totino-Grace 21, Eden Prairie 14. KFAN.com/listen.

Jon Krawczynski

#Spurs 91, #TWolves 62 after 3. Spurs just trucked Minny that quarter. Parker with 28, Green 15. Wiggins has 14.

Jon Krawczynski

LaVine is just frantic out there. Kid needs to take a deep breath. Happens to lots of rooks

Jerry Zgoda

Wiggins has 9 of his 14 points here in 3rd qtr, but Wolves trail Spurs 81-59

Jon Krawczynski

Nine straight for Wiggins. Asserting himself now.

Jon Krawczynski

Here comes your daily Wiggins 3rd quarter flurry

Jon Krawczynski

Muhammad (1-7, 1 reb) finding the going against Diaw, Leonard slightly tougher than Travis Wear.

Jerry Zgoda

Spurs G Cory Joseph diagnosed with ankle sprain at halftime, will not return

Andy Greder

#Spurs will be without Cory Joseph (sprained ankle) for the rest of the game.

Andy Greder

#Spurs have 8-2 start to open up a 67-50 lead over #Twolves in third quarter.

Jon Krawczynski

Cory Joseph will not return with a sore left ankle. Spurs short-handed at PG.

Andy Greder

#Spurs Tony Parker was sooooo open on that last three-pointer he had time to think about if he's ever been more open. He's 3 of 3 from deep.

Andy Greder

Half: #Spurs 59, #Twolves 48. San Antonio goes on a 13-0 run to open things up in second quarter. Tony Parker leads all scorers, 23 points.

Jon Krawczynski

#Spurs 59, #TWolves 48 at half. Parker with 23 on 10-15. Spurs shooting 56%. Mo Williams has 15 for Wolves.

Jerry Zgoda

Spurs 59, Wolves 48 at the half. Parker has 23 already. Mo has 15 for Wolves

Jon Krawczynski

less than 3 minutes to go in the first half and Tim Duncan just had his first shot of the game.

Jon Krawczynski

13-0 run for the Spurs, who are running away with this one. 54-37

Andy Greder

#Twolves Ricky Rubio is getting all sorts of fired up at these calls. ...

Five buckets in paint thus far. RT @ Jon Krawczynski Parker is devouring the Wolves on dribble penetration.

Andy Greder

This is the #Twolves' seventh different starting lineup. It's the 11th game.

Jon Krawczynski

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

Jerry Zgoda

From 6-2 down, Spurs now lead 10-6 early here at TC

Jon Krawczynski

Will be interesting to see how Wiggins responds tonight with Kawhi checking him. Won't be a fun night at the office for him

Jon Krawczynski

Flip has switched Brewer on to Parker and Mo on to Danny Green

Andy Greder

#Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph checking out the #Twolves at Target Center.

Jerry Zgoda

What's the final margin tonight?

Andy Greder

Reminder: #Twolves have 10 active players against the defending champs. Starters are Wiggins, Muhammad, Dieng, Brewer and Williams.

Jerry Zgoda

Spurs are starting Kawhi, Duncan, Diaw, Parker, Green vs. Wolves' Mo, Brewer, Wiggins, Dieng and Shabazz

Jerry Zgoda

Flip said his Golden Valley CC team might have been older than the one the Wolves will field tonight

Jerry Zgoda

Flip's parting words to media before game: "One of these days I’m going to come bring good news."

Jon Krawczynski

Knicks bailed out Wolves by matching up to MIN instead of dictating matchups. I might expect Pop to try a different approach

Jon Krawczynski

Flip says he's emulating Pop tonight by sitting 4 of his starters. Doubt Wolves get fined though
