Wolves 102, Lakers 109

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
Don't be misled by the final score of the Wolves' 109-102 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night at Staples Center. Don't be distracted by Kobe Bryant's electric 50 points -- be entertained, be impressed but not distracted -- because the Wolves took themselves out of this game early and never overcame it.

Last night's game brings the total of consecutive road losses to ten.

Team record: 28-37
