LA Lakers and Minnesota Timberwolves will have to decide which of them will stay on the last spot in the Western Conference.
Both teams have big problems since the beginning of the new season in NBA, but it seems to me, that LA Lakers are with slightly better chances in that game.
The hosts lost their last game at “Staples Center”, but it happened against probably the best team in the Western Conference in this moment (Memphis Grizzlies) and what is even more important, Kobe Bryant gets bigger support from his teammates.
The guests won only once in six away games so far this season, as the last two of them were lost with fourteen or more points difference.
It seems, that the absence of Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin can’t be compensated and I think, that under these circumstances, LA Lakers will manage to cover this handicap.
