Two of the NBA's best rebounders, Kevin Love and DeMarcus Cousins, are set to renew acquaintances again.
Cousins, however, hasn't been much of a factor against Love's Minnesota Timberwolves this season.
The home team has won every matchup between Cousin's Sacramento Kings and the Timberwolves heading into Monday night's meeting of last-place teams at Power Balance Pavilion.
Love is averaging 13.7 rebounds to rank second in the NBA, while Cousins is fourth at 11.1 boards per game.
Minnesota's star has played in two of the three meetings between the clubs this season, averaging 27.0 points and 11.0 rebounds. Love continues to lead the NBA with 45 double-doubles.
