Sunday: 8 p.m. at Portland (FSN Plus). Monday: 9 p.m. at Sacramento (FSN). Wednesday: 7 p.m. vs. Golden State (FSN). Saturday: 7 p.m. at New Orleans

Player to watch: DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento The guy the Wolves didn't want any part of in the 2010 draft -- partly because of his character issues, partly because they intended to sign Darko Milicic -- averaged 28.3 ppg and 15.3 rpg in a four-game stretch last week, double-doubles all.

Voices "It's always special to come back to true fans and your foundation. But as far as that franchise, I have nothing positive to say." — Boston forward Kevin Garnett on his annual return to Target Center.
