Well, here's the three New Year's resolutions I have for the Los Angeles Lakers as it pertains to their biggest glaring issues as they dive into the new year while still dealing with their old self. Ball's shooting percentages have improved significantly since the first two months of his National Basketball Association career, as he shot a healthy.377 from the three-point arc through 10 games in December. We wouldn't be so high on Hart but with Lonzo ruled out and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope having to miss tonight because of legal reasons (he won't be at Lakers road games for a while) we like the potential Hart has for the night.

The Lakers are seeing a matchup with another team in the top 8 in terms of pace so we're expecting a lot of shots and a lot of points.

Although possible, it's unlikely that Ball will be cleared to play Wednesday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

With its early commanding lead whittled to as little as five points early in the third quarter, the Timberwolves went on a 13-0 run late in the quarter to seemingly put away the Lakers.

The name of the teenager killed has not been released. "It is believed that he showed up and initiated this all on his own". Tovaris Deloach, 17, died in November from injuries relating to a gunshot wound to the head.

The Lakers' strength and conditioning coach, Gunnar Peterson, didn't make the trip and worked on him.

"Any time you have your starting point guard it always helps", Lakers veteran Corey Brewer said.

Ball could get some on-court activity during a Lakers shootaround on Wednesday. Ball missed his fourth consecutive game on Sunday, and he won't play against the Timberwolves.

Butler has been red-hot for the Timberwolves during this stretch, scoring at least 20 points in every game while remaining efficient. Andrew Wiggins scored 21 in the win, while Karl-Anthony Towns had his 30th double-double of the season with 16 points and 13 rebounds. "Really just gotta tough it out or sit". Kuzma also has a deep understanding of what it takes for him to take his game to an even higher level which will set his future up for more success. In 35.8 minutes, Towns has averaged 20.3 points, 11.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1 steal, 1.6 blocks and 1.5 threes with 2.2 turnovers, leading to 43 fantasy points a game.
