Timberwolves begin road trip at Lakers

LOS ANGELES -- If the inconsistent Minnesota Timberwolves expect to have any shot at the playoffs, they need to string together some wins during their three-game road swing.

The Timberwolves (28-42) begin their trip Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers (20-51) at Staples Center. Minnesota faces the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday before visiting the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday.

Minnesota has lost four in a row, dropping 5 1/2 games behind the Denver Nuggets in the race for the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference playoffs, with 12 games remaining. The Timberwolves have struggled on the road, posting a 10-23 record.
