2023 Kings versus Timberwolves

Drew and Carmen came to the house to drop off Christmas presents in the late afternoon. Drew, Carmen, Jack, Sharon and I then headed downtown. We had an early dinner at the Foundation. I had an Italian Cobb Salad [grilled chicken, crisp pepperoni, red onion, tomato, cucumbers, croutons, parmesan, egg pepperoncini & Italian dressing].

After dinner, the five of us went to the Sacramento Kings versus Minnesota Timberwolves NBA basketball game. I bought seats 1, 2 and 3 in section 117, row S. Drew ended up getting his season tickets upgraded by his ticket representative to Row B in section 107.

The game was a rock fight. I was very impressed with how hard the Timberwolves played on defense. Trailing most of the game, the Kings pulled within 5 points with two minutes left (100 to 95), but missed a number of shots down the stretch. The Timberwolves won the game by the score of 110 to 98. Anthony Edwards was the high scorer for the Timberwolves. He had 24 points on 13 for 27 from the field, 3 for 12 from three and 5 for from the free throw line. Edwards added 10 assists.

De'Aaron Fox was the high scorer for the Kings. He has 27 points on 10 for 23 from the field, 3 for 11 from three and 4 for 4 from the free throw line.

The Kings shot 8 of 33 from beyond the arc. This is the fewest 3-pointers they've made in a game this season.

During the game, we switched seating. Jack sat with Drew in the second quarter. Sharon and Carmen sat in Drew's seats during the third quarter.

The Kings have one win and one loss in games that I have seen in person during the 2023-2024 season.

I walked Tiber when we got home and then crashed. Drew, Carmen, Jack and Sharon stayed up past midnight playing Codenames. Drew and Carmen gave Jack the game for Christmas.
