So, we just did this. In a weird scheduling anomaly, the Lakers play the T’Wolves again after just playing them a week ago. In an even weirder anomaly they will play them again next week, but whatever. So, if you’re wondering what I think about the Lakers playing the Wolves, you can read what I wrote on that day. Of course, it’s worth noting, the Lakers did end up winning that game — battling back in the 2nd half to force overtime and riding a career night from Jordan Clarkson.
So, maybe it’s worth remembering that game to give tonight’s contest more context – or maybe this game is on the road rather than at Staples and with it being another 1-game road trip and the start of 3 games in 4 days, combined with the Lakers’ general inconsistency, there’s nothing to take from a good game a week ago. Add in that Brandon Ingram is out for his 3rd straight game with knee tendonitis and who knows what to think?
