(20-13) Minnesota Timberwolves vs. LA Lakers (11-20)
Monday, December 25 finds two Western Conference foes entering their tenth week of play in the 2017-18 regular season for the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers.
Last season the Timberwolves and Lakers would played each other four times with the teams splitting the four game series. For the all-time series, the LA Lakers hold the all-time series record with 75-29 against the Minnesota Timberwolves .
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been one of the most surprising yet sharpest teams in the Western Conference right now. The Timberwolves come into this contest riding a three game winning streak as they were able to take care of the Phoenix Suns, Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers.
This Minnesota offense has been great as they have scored at least triple digit points in four of their past six games.
In their recent win against the Phoenix Suns it was an amazing day for guard Jimmy Butler as he would led the team with 32 points, 6 rebounds and four assists. Back in line behind him was Andrew Wiggins who showcased his young talent for 17 points on the win.
The LA Lakers are finally starting to show some promise this season as their past three games have become a better of the good. To begin with, LA was able to knock of the Houston Rockets winning record with a huge 122-116 win as they used that momentum to almost win against the Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers.
LA does come into this game with a two game losing streak, but they are a piece away from being a top team in the league right now. Rookie Lonzo Ball is slowly getting his feel in LA as he finished with a double double against the Blazers.
LA has played well in the past Christmas games before as they always seem to live up to the hype and put on a show for the fans. Expect the same thing as they should be able to go toe-to-toe with the Wolves.
