Timberwolves Vs. Lakers Score Update: Minnesota Trails 53-45 At Halftime

In search of a rare win over the Los Angeles Lakers, the Minnesota Timberwolves are struggling to contain Pau Gasol. The Spaniard has scored 16 points for the Lakers as Los Angeles holds a comfortable 53-45 lead at halftime in Minneapolis Kobe Bryant also has a modest 13 points as well.

Minnesota's offense has seen Kevin Love score 16 points while pulling down six rebounds, but the Timberwolves are shooting worse than 38% from the field. Nikola Pekovic has also been solid for the Timberwolves with 11 points so far. Unfortunately, Pekovic and Love are the only two Minnesota starters that have done much of anything so far. The remaining three starters have a combined seven points.

Los Angeles has not done much better, but Andrew Bynum is close to double figures with eight points. Minnesota is a paltry 1 of 7 from three-point range so far.
