The LA Lakers (12-13) host the Minnesota Timberwolves (13-13) tonight at Staples Center. Tip off is set for 7:30 pm PST.

The Lakers will be showcasing a new starting lineup tonight as Steve Nash Steve Blake Jordan Farmar Kobe Bryant Xavier Henry will be taking over the point guard duties. Jodie Meeks, Wesley Johnson, Jordan Hill & Pau Gasol are expected to fill out the rest of the starting lineup. Newly-signed Kendall Marshall should expect to see some minutes tonight as the Lakers are that desperate for point guard play. The Lakers will need to slow down the Minnesota offense in order to get the "W" tonight.

Your drinking triggers for tonight include:

  • The Lakers starting their 5th different PG.
  • Kendall Marshall being signed less than 24 hours ago.
  • Kobe out until the All-Star break.
  • Kevin Love playing college ball at UCLA.
  • The Lakers & the lottery.
