As long as someone takes out KAT’s knees, this game is a success.

Particularly since they have let it be known that tonight’s game is the dress rehearsal.

STARTERS

Per McTen

The Lakers will start LeBron, AD, Russ, Beverley and Lonnie Walker tonight vs. MIN and Darvin Ham says he will use a regular season type rotation through the first three quarters.

I mean Reaves is the better fit with Lebron/AD, but ok Lonnie let’s see what you got.

Looks like Ham wants to see how Reaves/Nunn do as the off the bench facilitators. Don’t think they play Schroder tonight but we’ll see.

KAT will probably be playing PF, spacing by taking his shots
from 3pt land...

Per Trudell

In the second preseason game, Austin Reaves started alongside Beverley and Westbrook. Tonight, Lonnie Walker IV gets that chance; Ham said he’s been very pleased with how Walker IV’s looked in practices and in the last two games.

So yeah… One last experiment before he locks it down going into the season I guess? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Darvin says that Matt Ryan will “definitely” get some minutes tonight with LeBron and Russ. Calls the player on a training camp contract “a diamond in the rough” and says “hopefully he’ll be a Laker long-term.

Can't wait to see Dennis play, he and Nunn will give our bench some boost during regular season.

Darvin Ham said he’s going to find ways to use players in different roles, depending upon how they’re playing, and perhaps extend the rotation where needed. But ultimately:

“We want to do what’s best for the Lakers, not so much the back of the jersey.”

Minnesota head coach Chris Finch says Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns are out tonight, among several other Timberwolves players.

Meanwhile Minny is sitting a bunch of folks lol

Gobert and Towns are amongst several Wolves that won’t play tonight against the Lakers, so, we won’t see that contrast in styles between LAL’s smaller/faster group with AD at the 5 and Minnesota’s huge lineup.

EDIT- I read one of the tweets wrong the coach is there. But he's about it lol

Don't like that start lining up... I guess Ham is serious about starting AD at the 5 and Lebron at the 4... Which was brutal on their body last season.

I've been so focused on wanting Westbrook out that I hardly noticed an actual team has been put around LBJ and AD. They're all role players with various issues, of course, but they remind me a lot of the ragtag group from 2020.

Hoping they all show out tonight!

Nunn & Reaves seem to have good chemistry between them, add in Ryan, Wenyen & DJ, I expect the second unit to be energized tonight.
