Minnesota Timberwolves (226) vs. Los Angeles Lakers (11) Preview (12/08/2019)

The Minnesota Timberwolves will be on the road Sunday taking the court against the Lakers at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Timberwolves will look to snap their losing streak following a 139-127 loss against the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Friday. The Lakers will be looking for a fourth consecutive win following a 136-113 win against the Trail Blazers in Portland their last time on the court.

 

The Minnesota Timberwolves are now 10-11 on the season following a 139-127 loss in overtime against the Thunder in Oklahoma City. Jeff Teague was able to connect on 12 of 17 from the field to lead the Timberwolves with 32 points while passing the ball for a team-high nine assists. Robert Covington was able to grab seven rebounds on the night. Minnesota had six players finish with a double-digit game scoring.

 

The Timberwolves have been good for an average of 114.3 points per game on the offensive end of the court while hitting 44.1 percent from the field. They have been able to pass the ball for an average of 23.7 assists per night while grabbing 47.7 rebounds. Defensively, they allow an average of 115.9 points per game to their opponents. Minnesota has been taking the ball away for 8.2 steals every time they are on the court to go along with 6.4 blocks. They will be looking to avoid a fourth consecutive loss.

 

The Los Angeles Lakers are now 20-3 following a 136-113 win against the Trail Blazers in portland. Anthony Davis was able to knock down 12 of 21 from the field to lead the Lakers with 39 points. Lebron James passed the ball for a team-high eight assists while Dwight Howard hauled in 10 rebounds. Los Angeles had four different players finish the game with at least 13 points.

 

The Lakers have been able to put the ball in the net for an average of 113.3 points per game this season while shooting 48.5 from the field. L.A. has passed the ball for an average of 26.4 assists per night with 45.4 rebounds. On the defensive end of the floor, Los Angeles gives up 103.7 points per night. The Lakers average 8.7 steals per game to go along with 7.4 blocks. They will be looking for a fourth consecutive win.

 

As of Saturday afternoon, both the point spread and the total were off for this game. I like the Lakers winning at home. Sure, Minnesota is scoring a point more per game but the Lakers have been tough on the defensive side of the court. Los Angeles shoots a higher percentage from the field, passes for more assists, and takes the ball away with more steals. Add all this up and my money’s on the Lakers winning at home.
