The Los Angeles Lakers hold on to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 108-103 tonight. They have won three out of their last four games – all games in which LeBron James started at center. This one exposed some of the problems with going small (outrebounded x2, 56-28) but it’s a win in a game they needed to win. LeBron’s 30-point streak ends, but he had 26 points. Russell Westbrook with 20 points and 9 turnovers. Avery Bradley with 14 points and 4 steals.
