Loves' 43 Not Enough as Wolves Fall to Kings

Ray McCallum hit back-to-back 3-pointers in a pivotal stretch midway through the fourth quarter, DeMarcus Cousins had 35 points and 15 rebounds, and the Sacramento Kings beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 106-103 on Sunday night.

The Kings trailed by 11 in the third quarter and were down 82-81 before going on an 11-2 run to go in front for good. Cousins, who had his eighth straight double-double, started the surge with a thunderous dunk and McCallum followed with his 3s, one from the left corner and the other from the right.

Cousins was hit with a technical foul with less than 2 minutes remaining, his 16th of the season. By NBA rules, he must sit out Sacramento's final regular season game.

Kevin Love had 43 points and 11 rebounds for Minnesota after sitting out Friday's 112-110 win over Houston because of a hyperextended right elbow.
