MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Two free throws by Isaiah Thomas gave Sacramento a 3-point lead with 4 seconds left Wednesday and the Kings held on to defeat Minnesota 111-108.

The Kings led by as many as 11 in the fourth quarter, but Minnesota went on a 17-7 run and moved within a single point on a 3-point play by J.J. Barea with 4.6 seconds remaining.

After Thomas made his free throws, Barea missed a 3-point try that left the Timberwolves with their second straight loss.
