Timberwolves at Lakers: Stream NBA Preseason Live Free Online
The Minnesota Timberwolves went all-in over the summer, sending up to five first-round picks to the Utah Jazz to get three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert to team with superstar Karl-Anthony Towns. The Timberwolves will visit the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night. Last season’s playoffs were missed by injuries to LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The Lakers fired coach Frank Vogel, who led the team to a championship in 2020, and brought in highly regarded veteran assistant coach Darvin Ham from the Milwaukee Bucks to take over the reins. The three main players are still there, but they have a different support cast.
