The All-Star power forward missed the game because of the flu, while Kobe Bryant lit up the Wolves for 31 points.

The Lakers are probably the hardest match up for the Wolves with Bynum, Pau, and Kobe. Can't expect much without Kevin Love. Hopefully they can rebound against a mediocre Phoenix.

Better headline: Love-less Wolves Fall Hard.

The difference was veterans and professionals versus youth and inexperience. The Lakers saw the Clippers game and got some rest and prepared for the big game. The Wolves were celebratory and went out afterwards. Nothing wrong with that, but there was a telling difference in approach.

Let's write this one off. Three games in three nights, all on the road, all against teams rested from the All-Star break, and no Love. The Wolves will be fine!

Can't wait to hear what the Beasley bandwagon has to say about this one. You guys are hilarious.

It is becoming clear that Rubio IS an NBA passer, but NOT an NBA shooter. Consistent 1 for 8 shooting nights does not help this team win.

kingkahn - Blaming that loss on Beasley is ridiculous. The Twolves got blown away at home with love as they do not match up against the Lakers well at all. Pek, Rubio, Wes, all got dominated before the reserves even came into the game. The reserves actually brought them back in the second quarter. Again in the third the starters got destroyed.

I actually thought Adelman waited too long to bring Beasley into the game in the third. By the time beasley came in they were already down 24.

seems that if Ridnour isn't hitting then the wolves are in trouble....just saying...

How many more lessons does Kolbe and others have to give Wes Johnson before Alderman gets the message that Johnson needs to put time in at the D league level, what the coach sees in this kid is beyond me, occasional bursts of talent but he contributes noting, especially in the first quarter where we need some shooters.
