The Timberwolves are mired in a 4-game losing streak and unless they catch fire they will not make the playoffs 5.5-games out of the 8th seed in the Western Conference.
The Lakers season is long over and they have lost 6 in a row and 14 of their last 15 games. L.A. has the fewest wins in the West and the 2nd fewest wins in the NBA.
In their last game the Timberwolves lost to the San Antonio Spurs 100-93 and the Lakers lost to the L.A. Clippers 133-109.
This season the Timberwolves, at least, are balanced ranking 16th in the league in both points per game and points allowed.
In the loss to the Spurs in their last game the T-Wolves shot the 3-ball better, but allowed San Antonio to shoot 48.1% from the floor, they shot 44.4%, and they committed 23 turnovers.
The T-Wolves had a 9-point lead at the half in the Spurs game, but they were outscored by 15 points in the 3rd quarter.
Karl-Anthony Towns went for a double-double in the loss to the Spurs going for 25 points and 14 boards on a decent shooting night and while Andrew Wiggins went for 22 points he was only 5/15 from the floor.
Towns (24.6 ppg) and Wiggins (23 ppg) are the 2 big guns for the T-Wolves and the players the Lakers have to try to contain. Minnesota misses 3rd leading scorer Zach LaVine (18.9 ppg), who is out for the season with a knee injury.
This season the Timberwolves are 10-23 on the road.
San Antonio Spurs
The Lakers rank tied for 17th in the league in points per game and 28th in points allowed.
In the Lakers blowout loss to the Clippers the game was over early, as they were outscored by 30 points in the first half. For the game the Lakers shot a decent 46.7% from the floor, but they allowed the Clippers to shoot 53.6% from the field and 45.5% from behind the 3-pt line.
Brandon Ingram led the Lakers with 21 points in the loss to the Clippers and he is listed as probable for this game with a minor knee injury.
The Lakers have young talent with the likes of Ingram, Julius Randle, D’Angelo Russell, and Ivica Zubac, who has been solid as of late with extended minutes, but the team just can’t keep other teams from lighting them up. In 4 of their last 5 games they have given up at least 125 points.
The Lakers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against the Timberwolves.
The Lakers are 12-22 at home this season.
