Starring: The Lakers come back from an early deficit for a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. It was an ugly game at first, as the Wolves were getting anything they wanted early. Pau, having to battle trade rumors looked to be out of sync. However, with surprisingly good late game execution, the Lakers came through. Bynum was a man possessed:

Bynum was, again, a mark of dominance and everything good about this Laker team right now. Getting his 26th double-double of the season in 36 games, he muscled up shots in a crowd, earned a handful of and-1's because of his aggression at the basket, and in one play, dribbled a quick step around Darko Milicic down the baseline and got an uncontested dunk.

Next up, a game against the rival Celtics. Also, Kobe passes 29,000 points, Happy birthday to Matty Ice, and Josh McRoberts gets more playing time.

Much more after the jump...
