Video: Lakers, Timberwolves Battle at Staples Center

The Lakers and Timberwolves took the floor in a highly-anticipated matchup on Wednesday night. While the game itself seemed to take a backseat to the trade rumors and Kobe Bryant’s mask, it was still the first game since the All-Star break for Los Angeles.

After nearly a week off, the Lakers came out and ran past the Timberwolves to earn an impressive victory. Despite a beat up Bryant the Lakers cruised to a 104-85 victory over the T-Wolves.
