LA Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves Preview
Following LeBron’s injury, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook have taken the main option roles. They are 2-2 ever since the injury and are developing a LeBron-less system which is good for them. In their most recent game against the Heat, both teams were able to keep the score neck to neck tying it several times in between. Both teams were great on defense and that is something the Lakers lacked for a while.
They shot an incredible 50% from the field and 47.4% from three during the game. After missing a game winner, Westbrook finished the game with another triple double to his name with 25 points, 12 rebounds and 14 assists followed by a double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds from Davis. Malik Monk scored well off the bench with 27 points, six rebounds and three assists.
The Timberwolves are not having the best time and have not been having it for long time now. After having D’Angelo Russell return to the court they have experienced a slight boost in offense after he put up 30 points on returning night and 18 points against the Warriors (both resulted in losses by a thin margin). Both Anthony Edwards(fifth in the league for threes made per game) and Karl-Anthony Towns are averaging 23 points per game. Towns leads the team in points, rebounds, steals and blocks.

LA Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves Prediction
This would an easy one for the Lakers since the Timberwolves lack a good experienced leader in their team. Spurts of good basketball have been displayed by the Timberwolves, especially Anthony Edwards who will make a very good player to build around in the future but right now they need to be more aggressive at the least.
