  1. Lakers vs. Timberwolves: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Apparently, there's a provision in the new collective bargaining agreement mandating the Lakers and Timberwolves play once a week in seasons taking place during a leap year. Thus, the third meeting since Feb. 29. But despite Minnesota standing pat at...

  2. Rapid Reaction: Lakers 104, Timberwolves 85

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Last season, the Lakers tore out of the All-Star break to the tune of a 17-1 clip. Is history about to repeat itself? Declarative statements in either direction would be premature after just one game, but for the time being, they've done the requisit...

  3. Lakers vs. Timberwolves: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It's been nearly a week since any Laker save Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum dribbled a basketball in a competitive setting, and Drew did so for less than six minutes. The Lakers were also playing a pretty uneven brand of basketball heading into All-...

  4. Kobe and Rubio wager the key to Barcelona on the 2012 Olympics

    Andy Kamenetzky

    An exchange between Kobe Bryant and Timberwolves rook Ricky Rubio has been making the viral rounds. After the Laker victory in Minnesota on Saturday, Bryant spotted Rubio and Pau Gasol talking and congratulated the kid on a game well played. From the...

  5. Lakers at Timberwolves: What to watch, with A Wolf Among Wolves

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Should the Lakers drop tonight's contest in Minnesota -- certainly a believable outcome, given the debacle in Milwaukee -- it'll be doubly disconcerting because of the story within the story. The Lakers are a team in transition. From Phil Jackson to ...

  6. Lakers 106, Wolves 98: At the buzzer

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The Lakers won the game, which is the most important thing (especially since Boston, Chicago, and Dallas all lost today). The second most important thing would be that we never speak of said game again. It's similar to the rules regarding Fight Club....

  7. Lakers-Wolves: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Of all the impressive wins since the All-Star break, in it's own right, a victory over the Timberwolves on March 1 provided for me the most convincing proof of the Lakers being fully rededicated. For nearly three quarters, the Lakers couldn't get the...

  8. Defense and rebounding wins championships and/or beats the Wolves...

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It took nearly three quarters before the Lakers finally looked like the Lakers at the Target Center. After tying the game at 58 with a 15 footer, Kobe Bryant drilled a three pointer and set up Lamar Odom at the rim with a slick fake shot-pass. The fl...

  10. Lakers vs. Timberwolves: What to watch

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It's no secret the Wolves aren't good. They finished 2010 with a NBA second-worst 15-67 clip, and a current 1-6 clip isn't improving on last season's pace. They're arguably the league's premier laughing stock franchise, what with the Knicks on a theo...

  11. Thoughts on the Lakers' 111-92 loss in London

    Andy Kamenetzky

    I wanted to pass along some observations from Monday's fall to the Timberwolves. Obviously, this is just preseason, and only so much stock should ever be placed in the results. Phil Jackson's exhibition squads typically underwhelm, and according to m...

  12. Lakers bite Wolves: The Reactions

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Here's the skinny on the Lakers' Western Conference-clinching victory in the 'Sota. It wasn't the most impressive performance, but at this point, I've joined the Lakers in looking ahead: So there you have it. Some good, some "meh," and arguably l...

  13. Lakers 97, Wolves 88: One Moment

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Fourth quarter. The game clock registers just three seconds remaining. Then two. Then one. Another tick, and the Lakers take official ownership of the Western Conference for the third year running. The exact totem pole spot anticipated back ...
