Monday, October 29 finds The LA Lakers travelling to play host Minnesota Timberwolves. Both squads enter the third week of play following losses. The Lakers fell to the Spurs and the Wolves got trounced by the still undefeated Bucks in their last outings.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Wolves sweeping the series. However, LA hold the all-time record having bested the Timberwolves in 77 of their 110 matches.
Despite holding a double digit lead the Lakers succumbed to San Antonio in clutch time ending their mini two-game win streak. Rajon Rondo returned from serving his 3-game Spit Game suspension and was tied to a controversial late game decision.
Trailing by three, Rondo ignored an open layup to pass to LeBron James. In hindsight the decision was logical given LA had no timeouts, so Rondo elected to opt for the best player in the NBA potentially tying the game.
James registered another massive stat line of 35 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals despite suffering back stiffness mid game. James registered historic milestones this past week surpassing Shaquille O’Neal to capture the sixth-most made field goals. James also moved into sixth on the All-Time scoring list passing the still active Dirk Nowitzki.
Luke Walton stuck with his youngsters Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart in the starting rotation although Brandon Ingram will likely be reinserted as he returns from his four game suspension versus the Wolves.
The big question in Milwaukee is how much of their struggles are tied to the Jimmy Butler conflict. Prior to the loss in Minnesota, Butler had been the one Minnesota player performing well. But, his 2 for 11 field goals signifies the stress may also be getting to him.
Notably, an apparent Rockets deal is on the table with four first round draft picks being dangled by Houston.
Karl-Anthony Towns is without a doubt the Wolves player most affected by the drama with his game production suffering exponentially. Although Minnesota know his talents predominantly are offensive a $190 million five year contract comes with expectations.
Through six games this season he’s recording career lows in scoring, rebounds, assists and steals. And, despite his 7′ stature is attempting 32.3% of his shots from the perimeter
Andrew Wiggins was the closest thing to the NBA’s iron man missing only one game in four seasons while logging substantial minutes. He’s doubled that toll already this year sitting out back to back games (quadriceps contusion) and remains questionable for this match.
