NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Lakers have had trouble putting opponents and come into this game after playing a couple of Overtime games. The team has defensive issues, squandering 112 PPG, and Russell Westbrook despite his all-around talent has been turning the ball way too much. The Lineup is still calling for settlement and it is clear that the team is missing LeBron’s leadership on the floor.

Timberwolves are among the bottom of most defensive metrics and give away a ton of free throws to their opponents. Offensively, they shoot just 41% and it is clear that their record indicates the struggle on both ends of the floor. While Russell, Edwards, and Towns have been superb offensively. The team lacks the overall depth to acquire wins.
