When these two teams played last week, the Sacramento Kings completed one of the biggest comebacks in NBA history when they erased a 14-point deficit in under 100 seconds to force overtime. Sacramento would win the final frame and the game, avenging their December 26th double-overtime loss in Minnesota.
While we predicted that these two teams would be on similar ground throughout the season, we thought they’d be battling for the 8th seed. Instead, they are a combined 16 games behind the final playoff spot. Things are particularly bad for the Timberwolves, who are just 5-25 in their last 30 games.
