The T-Wolves are back in that same ‘ol place again — trending toward the bottom of the Western Conference. Minnesota has lost six games in a row after falling to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. The bright spot is the Timberwolves clearly don’t have to worry about Anthony Edwards panning out. He’s leading the team in scoring averaging 25.9 points per game. It’s not on the most efficient numbers, but remember, Edwards is only 20 years old.
The Lakers have ripped off two wins in a row to improve to 7-5 heading into Friday night. LeBron James remains sidelined with that abdominal strain but should be back in the lineup some time next week. In the mean time, the Lakers will continue to lean on Russell Westbrook and Anthony Davis. Russ has a triple-double in each of the past two wins. AD has a double-double in each of the past two games, scoring a combined 56 points.
