123-122 the TimberWolves beat the Lakers in 0T

It was the battle of future stats in Minnesota Wednesday night.

Karl-Anthony-TownsKarl-Anthony Towns had 26 points and 14 rebounds and Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell had 23 points.The 2o year old Julius Randle also had a double- double scoring 20 points and grabbing 12 rebounds.

When the fourth quarter came around Bryant told coach Byron Scott to “let the kids play”.”They were playing with good energy and great momentum,” Bryant said of Russell and Randle. “Just let `em go.” After him saying that, it led to an impressive shot Russell hit with 2.2 seconds to send the game into overtime. Unfortunately for the Lakers he missed what would of been the game winning shot in overtime.   What made the biggest difference in the game, which eventually was the reason the Timberwolves won was that Kevin Martin had a break out game scoring 37 points on 6-9 from three point land.Timberwolves-at-New-York-Knicks

Lakers also shot there selves in the foot only shooting 63% from the free throw line. Hiting more free throws could have easily changed the outcome of this game.  They missed 10 free throws on only 27 attempts. Moving foward for the Lakers we are expecting them to give more minutes to Russell and Randle and take more of the load off Kobe Bryant.

Next up for the Lakers is a match up with the Spurs friday night. For the Timberwolves they will play the Denver Nuggets.
