The Los Angeles Lakers have begun their three-game road trip with disastrous results so far, dropping games to the lowly Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards earlier in the week. The Lakers conclude their road trip Friday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, then return home Sunday to host the Boston Celtics in a nationally televised game on ABC. Here is the Lakers' weekend schedule:
Friday - Lakers at Minnesota (5 p.m., KCAL): The Lakers have beaten the Timberwolves 17 straight times, but are also just 6-14 on the road this season. The Lakers have scored 100 points just eight times this season in 39 games, but two of those games have been their two wins over Minnesota.
Sunday - Boston at Lakers (12:30 p.m., ABC): The Lakers host their longtime rivals, looking for a similar result to their 88-87 win in Boston on February 9.
