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. Ask anybody, however - Rubio included - and the most important part is that the Timberwolves walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Rubio in the winning effort was Karl-Anthony Towns. Had it not been for Towns rounding out the Wolves's attack with 32 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

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.
