Minnesota Timberwolves at Los Angeles Lakers: Game Preview, How to Watch NBA Online, TV Channel, Live Stream

The Minnesota Timberwolves are making strides under the tutelage of interim head coach Ryan Saunders, and they make the trip to the Staples Center on Thursday hoping to upset the Los Angeles Lakers. You can stream it live online.

The Timberwolves may reside at the bottom of the Northwest Division, but they’re 6-4 in January and are on track to post their first positive record for a month in this campaign.

As fate would have it, Tom Thibodeau’s last game in charge of Minnesota was a 108-86 victory over the Lakers at the Target Center on January 6—he was fired hours later.

Surprising as that parting of ways might have been, there’s little arguing against the fact the Timberwolves have performed better since his dismissal. Their 115-119 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on January 11 was a disappointment, though their only other losses since then have come against tougher opposition (Philadelphia 76ers, San Antonio Spurs).

Star center Karl-Anthony Towns, 23, has been a dynamo in all sectors and led the team in points (25), rebounds (18) and assists (seven) in Tuesday’s 118-91 win against the Phoenix Suns. He’ll be one to keep a special eye on alongside the likes of Derrick Rose and Andrew Wiggins.

The L.A. Lakers are still without injured LeBron James, while Lonzo Ball suffered a sprained ankle in Saturday’s 134-138 overtime defeats to the Houston Rockets.

There is more positive news for Thursday’s hosts, however, after ESPN reported a game-time decision would be made over the fitness of Rajon Rondo, who’s been out with a hand injury.

Timberwolves point guard Jeff Teague could come back from a foot injury on Thursday, although teammates Tyus Jones and Robert Covington look likely to miss out.

The Timberwolves are enjoying their most fruitful period of the 2018-19 NBA season so far and will look to hand the Lakers successive home defeats for the second time in January.
