The Minnesota Timberwolves Performance

Although Timberwolves have given one of the best performances, there is no guarantee if they will be able to score against Lakers or not. If Timberwolves manage to get over the Lakers, they will be able to score a great deal and give an instant boost to their performance.
Absence of Players will be harmful to Lakers
LeBron James is suffering from his groin which eventually makes him unable to appear for the game. And thus, it is for the 15th time that he will be missing the game. But, the audience is expecting that Rajon Rondo might return in this game. He had missed his previous matches for about a month due to his finger injury
Rondo’s return might be a benefit for the Lakers Club since Lonzo Ball may be absent due to his ankle injury against Houston. The absence of James, as well as Rondo, may prove to be harmful to the Lakers.
It cannot be denied that Lakers have given some great performances against Oklahoma City with 138-128 and Houston with 138-134.
