Los Angeles
Minnesota

[MINNESOTA] — The Minnesota Timberwolves played host to the Los Angeles Lakers last night and the homeside took care of business. A 119-104 win has the Wolves and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Minnesota's record up to 30-44 on the season, while the loss drags Los Angeles's down to 21-54. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Timberwolves. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

An impressive performance from Ricky Rubio led all players in the contest and his 33 points, 5 rebounds, 10 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 38 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Rubio, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Timberwolves. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Los Angeles back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Timberwolves in the victory was Karl-Anthony Towns and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Rubio, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Towns posted 32 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists in the win.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Timberwolves walking away victorious was Minnesota's ability to limit Los Angeles's offensive output. By holding the Lakers to less than they usually produce the Timberwolves made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Wolves will be a date with the Sacramento Kings while the visiting Lakers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers.
