Timberwolves vs. Kings: This Time it Counts

Othyus Jeffers - USA TODAY Sports

Wolves and Kings meet this evening to begin the knock-out portion of the Las Vegas Summer League

When: 7:00pm Central
What: Wolves vs. Kings, Las Vegas Summer League

The Wolves, with 1-2 record so far, take on the Sacramento Kings summer league entry this evening. The Kings feature 7th overall draft pick Ben McLemore, who had been struggling with his shot until their last game when he scored 26 points on 8-14 shooting in a loss to Toronto.

Ray McCallum, the Kings second round pick has been playing very well at point guard for the Summer Kings, and appears a good bet to make the team this fall.

For the Wolves, we're still watching the guys with contracts: Shabazz Muhammad, who has struggled throughout, Gorgui Dieng, who looked much better after returning from a groin shot in the second half of Tuesday's win over Miami, and Chris Johnson, who has had his moments.

Robbie Hummel and Demetri McCamey have consistently been the Summer Wolves' best players so far, and both seem deserving of camp invites. Brandon Paul has had his moments, especially shooting the ball, as has D-League veteran Othyus Jeffers.

If the Wolves win tonight, they will earn a rematch against the D-League Select team that beat them in the opener. That game would take place Thursday at 7:30 CDT. If they lose tonight, they will play again on Friday at 5:00 CDT, and that would be their final game.

Enjoy tonight's tilt. Talk about it here if you wish.

EDIT: Game should be televised live on NBA TV.
