Three Stars of the Night: Kings Clawing the T-Wolves Edition


The Kings once again played a brilliant game from end to end. There was no need for writers to have to explain why the Kings blew a game that they seemingly had in hand, and the Kings didn’t need a miracle to comeback.

  • Although the Kings were down at the half, they showed the Minnesota Timberwolves who was the better team at the Target Center on Saturday night. This was a great way to kick off their four-game road trip away from home, as the Kings will head to New Orleans, Houston and San Antonio, three teams that figures to be in the hunt in the West. But until we dwell on those teams, here are the three stars of the night from the Kings mauling of the T-Wolves.

    One Star- Darren Collison

    Collison should just build a house in the Three Stars column, because he is proving that he is the perfect fit for the Kings. After spending the last two games setting up his teammates, Collison looked for his own shot, and scored 19 points, and still dished out seven assist. But the work is far from over, and as Collison would say:

    Two Stars- DeMarcus Cousins

    Bogie Cousins had a three star night, but for the first time since the incarnation of the Three Stars column, Boogie is not the three stars of the night. But he had yet another man among men games, going for another double-double (31 points, 18 rebounds) and controlling the paint on the defensive end with two blocks. Boogie is emerging as one of the top 5 big men in the NBA. Period. This tweet says it all:

    Three Stars – Ben McLemore

    The three stars of the night goes to McLemore. It was the Ben Show in Minneapolis on Saturday, as McLemore scored 22 points, while knocking down four three-pointers, and snagging nine rebounds. This is the McLemore that the Kings need to see more of, especially for the rest of this road trip. Watch B-More throw down a nasty alley-oop from Rudy Gay:
