Prediction and Conclusion

Two months into the season, the Minnesota Timberwolves are still on top of the Western Conference. Many believed that they would not be able to keep up the pace, but now the Timberwolves have proved that they are for real this season. They have lost only one of 14 home games and will have a chance to add another win when the Los Angeles Lakers visit Target Center on Saturday. The Lakers have lost 4 of their last 5 games when visiting Minnesota, and knowing how well Anthony Edwards has played lately, the Timberwolves are favorites to win this one as well.
