If the Lakers were able to play any kind of defense, this would've been an easy win.

Perimeter D is a huge problem for this team.


Our defense kept us from fully losing. We won every quarter but the 3rd which we lost by 5. It was more like our offense became stagnant but near the end of the game we got good looks against the zone that didn't fall. Luckily we got enough stops to prevent the wolves from coming ALL the way back.

Minnesota shot 10-22 from 3, had a better FG% (46) than the Lakers (42), and scored 100.

Heading into tonight: Minnesota was statistically the worst 3 pt shooting team in the NBA (.295) and were in the lower third in PPG (94.6).

This team is AWFUL defensively. When teams come back from that big of a deficit, it's both offense and defense.

One thing I'm really starting to notice is fatigue. I'm really starting to see it in Kobe and Metta. Their shots really look flat.

Also look at the trouble with shots at a distance. Kobe can't make many threes. Threes take your legs.

Missed the game but glad we got the win. Heard we gave up a big lead again though. Thats 3 times in a row and one of those we lost.

I'm glad we won but not at all happy with the team. 32 of the 92 FGA's were threes. That's crazy.
