Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Vogel didn’t comment on the switch to small ball for this matchup pregame, but Karl Anthony Towns is one of the highest volume/percentage 3-point shooters in the league, and Minnesota is also smaller at the 4 (McDaniels) and 3 (Edwards) than many teams. – 10:02 PM
Chris Biderman @TheWarriorsWire
After a lob from Steph Curry, Gary Payton II continued to build his highlight reel with another ridiculous dunk against the Timberwolves.…10:00 PM

StatMuse @statmuse
The Pistons are shooting 39.6% this season, the worst by any team since 1960.
That’s more than SIXTY years ago. The Lakers were still in Minneapolis then.
They are also shooting 28.6% from three, the worst by any team in the last 20 seasons. PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
Best half the Suns have played all year. A 19-point lead at the half. A tough Houston to Minnesota B2B for travel starting on Sunday so putting this one away would be helpful. – 9:04 PM

Lakers coach Frank Vogel said team plans to meet tomorrow to talk to players about COVID-19 booster shots, but said he didn’t have full details on everything that will be discussed – 8:51 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Frank Vogel had what appears to be a positive update on LeBron:
“His rehab is progressing nicely … this does not seem like it’s (going to be) an extended stretch.”
LeBron will miss a 5th straight game tonight, but Vogel added that he’s “Truly day-to-day.” – 8:50 PM

Frank Vogel on Austin Reaves injury: “Just makes a little more thin. We’re already thin, but we have enough.” – 8:47 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Chris Paul plays offense without getting called for fouls the same way Patrick Beverley plays defense without getting called for fouls.
Anyone else does that stuff, so many fouls. Impressive. – 8:25 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Keon Johnson officially has a left ankle sprain. He is out for tomorrow vs Timberwolves, though he may have been out anyway due to G League.
That’s where Brandon Boston Jr. and Serge Ibaka will remain.
Marcus Morris Sr., Jason Preston, Kawhi Leonard out as usual. – 8:24 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
As Ty Lue said last night, Serge Ibaka wants to get some extended G League run to build up his reps. The availability report for tomorrow’s game vs. Minnesota, via the team PM

Rob Schaefer @rob_schaef
Bulls have NBA’s 6th-best ORTG, but with offense down across league, their 110.5 pts per 100 is just 0.1 better than their 21st-ranked offense in ’20-21
Bulls’ defense (103.3 pts per 100) also ranks 6th. NBA’s top 14 defenses all have better DRTGs than last season’s leader (LAL) – 8:00 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
This reminds me of the old Dwight Howard drop defense in Charlotte. Mason is just WAY to low. This is basically a layup. PM

Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
In 12 games this season, Cam Reddish is one of only three bench players to be averaging at least 12.0 points and 1.2 steals (min. 10 games played). Reddish has totaled 15 thefts on the year, tied for fourth most amongst bench players, and 147 total points, tied for seventh most. – 7:38 PM
