Los Angeles Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves 3/16/2022 Betting Odds
Los Angeles Lakers Betting
LeBron James is nearing another milestone in getting ahead of Karl Malone to be the second all-time leading scorer in the NBA in a few games. It is not yet sure if James will be playing in this game as he is said to be battling knee problems lately. Russell Westbrook has been consistently underwhelming for the Lakers and there are rumors that this could be the end of Frank Vogel’s run with the team this year. Nonetheless, don’t be surprised if James will not play and that is why they need more from younger studs like Malik Monk, Stanley Johnson and Austin Reaves to step up.
Players to watch: LeBron James SF 50 GP 50 GS 36.9 MIN 29.7 PTS 1.1 OR 7.1 DR 8.2 REB 6.2 AST 1.4 STL 1.1 BLK 3.5 TO 2.1 PF 1.8 AST/TO 26.81 PER
Anthony Davis PF 37 GP 37 GS 35.1 MIN 23.1 PTS 2.8 OR 6.9 DR 9.7 REB 2.9 AST 1.2 STL 2.3 BLK 2.1 TO 2.5 PF 1.4 AST/TO 24.47 PER

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting
The Minnesota Timberwolves are now seventh in the NBA Western Conference standings and they are just glad to have a winning record this year. This team’s defense has been the key to why the Timberwolves brought up their wins and much credit to the new coaching staff preaching a great culture. Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards has been playing inspired basketball while D’Angelo Russell has been complementing both young scorers to form the team’s core. Patrick Beverly injected the Doberman mentality while Malik Beasley coming off the bench has been doing wonders for the team.
Players to Watch: Karl-Anthony Towns C 63 GP 63 GS 33.6 MIN 24.8 PTS 2.7 OR 7.2 DR 9.9 REB 3.8 AST 1 STL 1.2 BLK 3.1 TO 3.6 PF 1.2 AST/TO 24.97 PER
