The Western Conference of the NBA will see a game being played between LA Lakers and Minnesota Timberwolves in the regular season on Thursday. The Lakers are coming off one of the toughest defeats they’ve faced this season. They were completely outclassed by Golden State, and it clearly showed how badly this team needs the presence of LeBron James. He is still recovering and is going to be joining them soon. This might be the last game Lakers player without him, and the players will have to win if they are going to be in playoff contention.
Meanwhile, Minnesota Timberwolves are currently sitting in the 11th spot in the Western Conference. They did make the playoffs last year, but the story is a bit different in this campaign. They lost their star in Jimmy Butler but did get some good strength in depth. The team still needs one or two more decent players and will be looking at the trade market to try their luck.
