Champions LA Lakers host Minnesota tonight in Staples Center.
Lakers started season 1-1, Minnesota surprising 2-0 start.
Anthony Davis is out for LA Lakers, this is big news.
Karl Antony Towns is uncertain for Minnesota.
I like what I saw from Minnesota so far. Feisty spirit and a lot of fight. They are not a playoff team but have good young players who compete and can be excited about the future.
My suspicion is this game will be closer than suggested by odds, because without AD Lakers are not same team. And Minnesota looked good so far and competes.
I wish the status of Karl Anthony Towns wasn't in the air ... because we could either say Minnesota really has a good chance to even win ... or if he were out the handicap were bigger.
But as it stands I still suspect Minnesota can keep this game close with or without KAT.
And if the Lakers gain big advantage, Lebron will sit for sure in 4Q and Minnesota can come back and cover in the garbage time.
