LAL held a 5-point lead with 1:38 to play, before the Wolves got 2 FT's, 3 stops and the corner 3 from Budinger to tie it up.
OT b/w Wolves and Lakers. All fans should get a free beer.
And we're tied. Budinger drained a corner three after the Wolves stripped Black after his O board (could have been a foul). 0:06.6 left.
Lakers ball - Wolves, and Lakers, need a stop
Not sure if T-Wolves fans are booing or howling after that non-call.
Wolves push ahead 82-81
T-Wolves are on a 10-1 as the Lakers only lead by one with 6:15 remaining.
This is the Chase Budinger the Wolves thought they were getting before all the injuries. Maybe not the stretch 4 part, but a quality threat
Four early 4th Q fouls by the Lakers will have the Wolves in the bonus for the rest of the period, with 8:18 still to play. LAL up 79-74.
Wolves halftime show was pretty acrobatic http://t.co/DBepdT0cwb
That excitement you have when you see the Lakers are winning, followed by the disappointment when you realize that the Wolves are losing.
Lakers short-handed roster out-playing Wolves short-handed roster pretty handily
Minnesota opened the half going underneath a screen and giving Lin a wide open 3. Wolves took an early time out, LAL up 9.
Lakers up 49-43 at half over T-Wolves. Ed Davis leading the way with 8 points
Entretiempo: Lakers 49, Timberwolves 43.
Anytime the Lakers make a mistake, the T-Wolves scoreboard plays a clip of Nelson Muntz laughing at them
Robert Sacre, the second best NBA player from Canada in tonight's game, has back-to-back baskets as Lakers lead the T-Wolves, 28-21.
Lakers up 24-15 after a quarter - Wolves do not look good
Al final del primer cuarto: Lakers 24, Timberwolves 15.
I actually wanted to see Kevin Garnett play in a T-Wolves uniform tonight, but Jordan Clarkson vs. Andrew Wiggins/Zach LaVine works, too.
Timberwolves only have eight active players, so tonight will be difficult.
"Adam Levine" scores the first basket as Timberwolves take a commanding 3-0 lead early in the first quarter.
It's actually a big deal if the Lakers can manage to lose tonight to the Wolves
T-Wolves coach Flip Saunders said they considered drafting Kobe in 96, but unsure of having two high schoolers after drafting Garnett
Flip said the Wolves -who drafted Ray Allen, traded him for Marbury in '96- considered taking Kobe but weren't sure about 2 high schoolers.
Expect the Wolves to be without K. Martin (who's questionable) in addition to the guys we knew were out (Rubio, Pekovic, KG, Neal, etc).
A frame-by-frame of T-Wolves guard and former UCLA standout Zach LaVine throwing it down in the NBA Dunk Contest http://t.co/Vc8vYd0wOT
Wolves list KMartin, Hamilton as questionable, KG, Ricky & Neal doubtful & Bennett, Hummel, Shabazz and Pek out for Lakers tomorrow
I apologize to wolves fans if you thought I was insinuating the wolves are tanking. I was addressing tanking in general and how bad it is.
You can make the argument Wolves should be tanking at this point. But they're not.
Glen Taylor was at forefront of plans to try to further discourage tanking in preseason. Wiggins plays 48 tonight. Wolves aren't tanking
Can anybody who watched Jazz TV feed on League Pass paraphrase what broadcasters said early in game about Wolves tanking season?
It's a final Wolves 106, Jazz 104 in OT
