The Los Angeles Lakers visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.
Once again, the Lakers are looking to string together multiple wins in a row, as they’re coming off a 121-110 victory on Wednesday against the Chicago Bulls. They looked impressive at times, as they built large leads at two different junctures and thoroughly outplayed their opponents.
This contest will carry tremendous playoff implications for both teams. While Los Angeles is in ninth place in the Western Conference at 38-38, the Timberwolves are just half a game ahead of it in eighth place.
Despite their improved play over the last 20 games, of which they have won 13, the Lakers haven’t been able to climb higher than the eighth spot.
