Lesson learned.

The Lakers played another undermanned team, but they weren't exactly warm and friendly, racking up a 110-90 victory Friday over the hobbling Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center.


Unlike their sobering experience Sunday against the seriously depleted Phoenix Suns, the Lakers (50-12) delivered against the Timberwolves.

They became the league's first 50-victory team this season and, of greater importance, lead Cleveland (48-13) and Boston (49-14) by 1 1/2 games for the NBA's best record.

Kobe Bryant had 23 points, Pau Gasol had 21, and all five starters sat out the fourth quarter, the better to rest for an upcoming three-game trip that starts Monday in Portland and finishes with back-to-back games in Houston and San Antonio.

"We're pleased we got through the game, had guys get some rest, and now we're on to a real busy week next week," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said.




Rest of the Article.
