For a breakdown of tonight’s game, check out this game preview. The Wolves conclude their February portion of the NBA calendar with a matchup against the new look, DeMarcus Cousins-less Sacramento Kings. The Kings are 1-1 since trading their franchise center, while Boogie Cousins is 0-3 and still searching for his first win with his new team. #TrustTheVlade
